Don’t bother reading this post….

One of the reasons to have a business blog is the possibility of getting hits through Google searches, and thus more clients. Most of my clients come through word of mouth, but occasionally someone finds me by an Internet search, either reaching my website or this blog.

A nice feature of a WordPress blog is that you can track how many “hits” the  blog gets each day. One of the frustrating things is that you can’t see who’ s visiting. It’d be nice to be able to thank visitors and perhaps ask them if they’d be interested in doing a shoot.

On Google (and other search engines), the number of times a certain phrase appears on a website or blog will influence where you show up if someone searches, for example, for “Fairfield County Photographer.” There are services designed to help you increase traffic, to game the Google system as it were. The goal is to show up as one of the first listings on the first page of Google search results.

But I’m going to try something different. Today, I’m going to just list a bunch of phrases, in hopes that these will lead to more connections  from web surfers. Who knows? It might help. I’ll report back. And, in a few days, I’ll write a blog post that I hope you will bother to read!

Here goes:

Fairfield County Photographer, Fairfield County Portrait Photographer, Darien Photographer, Darien Portrait Photographer, Westport Photographer, New Canaan Photographer, Norwalk Photographer, Greenwich Photographer, Connecitcut Portrait Photographer, Connecitcut Fashion Photographer, Connecticut Editorial photographer, Connecticut Product Shot Photographer, Connecticut Headshot Photographer, Connecticut Commerical Photogrrapher, Connecticut Studio Photographer, Blake Robinson Photography, Blake Robinson Connecticut Photographer, Blake Robinson Fairfield County Photographer, Fairfield County photography, Darien Photography, Norwalk Photography, Wesrtport Photography, Weston Photgrapher, Wilton Photographer, Southwestern Connecticut Photgrapher, Norwalk Studio Photographer, Darien Studio Protographer, Fairfield County Studio photographer.

    Hi Blake,

    I’ve been experimenting with phrases, as well. Via the WordPress search tool, I entered Editorial Photography. As expected, many blog listings containing the words came up. Very few with the Editorial Photography together were soon. Yours is one of the few.

    Your comments in the third paragraph are correct. I have a friend who does this on his blog post and it works very well for him.

    Keep up the great work.
