Facts and figures on Find a Wedding Photographer
Wow - what a month January has been for Find a Wedding Photographer. As you may be aware we completely redesigned and rebuilt the site in November and added loads of new features, like videos to the listings and our new wedding photography Hot Shots section. Behind the scenes we re-optimised all the pages and sections and last week we completed the work my moving to a new faster server.
Consequently we’ve had more traffic than ever as we entered out 10th year online. Some of our photographers have advertised with us since the beginning and have renewed every year - I guess we must be doing something right.
Here are some of the stats from January:
- 131 new photographers have registered with the site since January 1st - as we never send out mail shots to random photographers asking them to sign up [like some wedding sites] we can only assume they found us through organic searches.
- 19000 unique visitors have been on the site with over 54000 page views - mainly from organic wedding photography searches. My favourite search is “local wedding photographers” - totally illogical but second guessing how people actually use search engines is impossible.
- Google webmaster tools shows that the site has shown up for 1617 different wedding photography searches - it helps that we have 5000 pages indexed! Prices, costs and compare based searches are very popular as you might expect these days.
- Quote requests - there have been 140 findaquote requests submitted through the site in January so if you are one of the wedding photographers registered with the service then hopefully you’ve also picked up a few bookings this way as well as plenty of traffic from your Featured Listings.
It really has been a very happy new year on Find a Wedding Photographer.
