Does good Photography Affect SEO?
There are many aspects to SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and each of these aspects or factors can have an interesting effect on your entire marketing campaign. Let’s talk photography and for the sake of this blog post “photos” in specifics!
Amazing Photography will have an Effect on your SEO
If you are launching an SEO campaign or any type of marketing campaign online, you better be sure you are using good photography and most importantly amazing photography shot of you and your business.
Sure, there are many ways to rank your website number one with iPhone pictures, stock photography and even scanned photos from your photo album. Yes, I have seen it happen. I have had clients come in for an SEO meeting, SEO consultation and say “OK, here is what I have” Really, a photo album from 1998 of over contrasted, dark-shadowed, extremely noisy images that your wife took of your “Feature Projects”.
If you are using mediocre images of your projects on your website or marketing campaign for SEO, you are probably going to get mediocre clients or mediocre prospects.

SEO Developers and the Tools of the Trade
When an SEO developer starts and SEO campaign for a local or national campaign, there are a handful of tools in his/ her tool belt that they can pull out, however, the most important tools are usually supplied by the client. If a client comes to an El Dorado Hils SEO company (Front Street Media – El Dorado Hills) with no domain name, no logo, no content and no images, the SEO developer is not going to be very happy. With that being said, any quality SEO developer can pull rabbits out of hats and create everything for that client; stellar domain name, quality content, amazing in-house photography, in-house videography and most importantly the SEO skills to pay your bills.
