Marketing Your Real Estate Photography With a Website

Posted by larrylohrman on November 28, 2006

If you looked at the image by Thomas Bliss that I talked about in the last post you visited Thomas’s website (www.architecturephotographer.com ). I was impressed by the clean simplicity and effectiveness of this site. I think it’s a good example of an effective photographer’s website. As I’ve said before, real estate photographers need to have a website to showcase their work. The feature I like the most is the large size of the photos in the galleries.

As you can see from the small links at the bottom of each pages this website is a Flash site hosted at www.foliolink.com. This is a hosting service that provides websites for artists and photographers. They have a huge number of templates both Flash and non-Flash sites. They can host an e-mail server for your domain and they can do e-commerce (so you can sell things). For around $20/month this appears to be a hosting service worth checking out.

  1. Take care when using a Flash site if you wish your Google ratings to increase.

    I note that at http://webfarm.foliolink.com/Artist.asp?ArtistID=7843&AKey=DEV9DHPV, the meta keywords, description and title are in place. But because it is a Flash, site, Google sees this page as a picture, not words.

    Take a look at http://www.widexl.com/remote/search-engines/metatag-analyzer.html and see how it rates your site. If you’re using Flash, Google cannot reconcile the meta “stuff” with the “pictures” — it sees no words.

    If your photography site is just that, and you don’t really care about the ratings, then there’s no problem. We’re virtual tour providers first (Real Tour Vision technology) and must be visible to search engines.

    Happy Holidays to all!
