This web site is a perfect example of what I call a “Search Engine Friendly” web site. We built the site with the search engines in mind, added lots of text that search engines could see, and now the site ranks on page one for most major phrases regarding photographers in Palm Springs!
NOTE: After the redesign, she’s currently number two on Google when you type in “photographers in palm springs”.
The majority of photographers and artists use pre-made image gallery flash web sites. Instead of using a complete flash web site (which is NOT readable by search engines), I found an amazing flash gallery that is inserted into HTML pages, implemented a really nifty sliding menu (due to space limitations and the desire to add many galleries into the menu) and a cool flash image player and achieved the same effect as a flash web site. If you look at any of the galleries, you’ll see text on the right side. All of that text is indexable by search engines, as are the image folders. What that means for the client is that all of her web site will be found and ranked (including the images) by the search engines. And it looks good too!
I have also installed a really unique and classy looking photography blog using WordPress as its platform. This section of the web site the client has complete control over, with an administrative backend where they can add content that is also “search engine friendly”. This is an addition to the main flash gallery web site of Ron Brewer Photography.
We used a premade WordPress Theme that worked perfectly with the web site design. The software is template based, and we found a unique look and feel that complements her main web site.
The background is fixed while the template moves, creating a really unique effect for the look and feel as you scroll down the page.
