Google search for “wedding photographer websites” pulls me up first page!! Crazy

It’s always fun watching how people find my website. I know I’ve posted about this before, but it’s just exciting to see how when someone searched the term “wedding photographer websites” on Google and got my website.

My intial thought was maybe they surfed through five or six pages of links before finding me, so I did the search myself, and crazy enough, I show up on the first page of results.

I know a lot of you guys follow this blog from a long ways away, I’m curious if Google gives people different results for this same search depending on where you live?

  • When Googled in South Lake Tahoe,NV it puts you on the first page, second from the bottom. So it looks like from the screen shot that you took, you have a better ranking up here.

  • Hey Tim!
    Google sends out "spiders" that search for the metadata that's imbedded in the code of a website...mispellings, descriptions, etc. The "spiders" also take into account the popularity of a website. They're very intuitive:)

    Anyhow, I'm so for the geekinfo.
    See ya Sunday:)

    Congrats! Google does have several data centers so that might be the reasons why some people are pulling up different rankings for the same term. Looks like the SEO is going well. Take Care.
