Horse photographer vs Horse Photography on Google
“I want to be number one on Google search results!”- That’s what I told my website designer in March 2016 when we met to discuss the goals of my website. I had a website for years that was not performing or being found on Google search results. My goal was to change that and stay on the first page- if not at the top. Rich from RLC Design Services worked with me for several weeks designing my site and training me on how to manage my site and write good content to show up on search results with Google. I got results quickly and changed my placement in the first few weeks.
But the thing about being found on Google is you can’t get comfortable there-it’s always changing. I am happy with the results for “horse photographer” but my ultimate goal is to get my name known as a Equine Fine Art Photographer that offers soulful horse pictures. I’m still working on that search term on Google 🙂
Photographer and Photography does cast different results so I have to keep working on the search engine optimization.
174 Blog posts about Horses, Horse Art, Horse Photography and Horse Photographers
Since the launch of my new website in March 2016, I have written 174 blog posts about Horses, Horse Art, Horse Photography and Horse Photographers. I have also written about Art Gallery showings and Horse Art installations. That’s an average of 5 blogs per month. In 2016 I was writing and keeping to a strict schedule. Now, I am not as strict but the momentum has kept me going and I still am on the first page of Google when you search for Horse Photographer.
I have watched several other Horse photographers appear at the top and then drop off the list over time. Even when I do not have any blog ideas- I try to find something to write about or find a guest writer to publish a blog.

Social Media and Google
