Since checking into the Wix SEO Clinic, Blaine Photography has enjoyed increased visibility in search engines, and actually booked 2 weddings! We are thrilled with their success (and are not surprised – these guys are excellent photographers).

Megan Blaine, a savvy businesswoman and half of the Blaine team, has taken it to the next step, contacting publishers of top wedding-industry blogs, promoting her photography services and scoring herself some killer links. Has successfully managed to get herself featured at TheKnot.com, and Style Me Pretty.

“It’s a full-and-a-half-time job”, says Megan, of her SEO efforts. “The thing that helps the most is connecting to other wedding vendors and working together to promote each other. Also link exchange.”

Jaime Miller’s ranking jumped from # 11 to # 3 since we last checked in. That’s a phenomenal change, and placed her right smack at the top of page 1 results in Google. A stellar combination of on-site SEO optimization and a back-link campaign pushed Jaime’s site to where it is today. She made sure her site had updated, fully optimized-content that would feed those hungry spiders and keep them coming back for more.

Studio 48

Main keyword = “Minnesota wedding photographer”

  • before SEO: 150
  • after 5 weeks of SEO: 25
  • after 7 weeks of SEO: 5

What’s New with Studio 48:

Studio 48 remains on Page 1 of Google for it’s main keyword phrase. True, there was a 2-spot drop since we last checked, but it’s normal for rankings to slightly fluctuate as Google re-indexes the site. This is not necessarily something to be concerned with, so long as you continue your SEO efforts. Studio 48’s site has undergone a major renovation of format and visual layout, and they’ve added a link to their own wedding photo blog – a terrific way to score SEO brownie points, with constantly updated content.
