  1. Great work, Scott.
    However considering you blog or update content regularly, give descriptive alt tags to images and stay updated on social media pages, its not that difficult to drive organic traffic to your website.
    I’ve built my photography website with Pixpa, and they allow me to define SEO tags for individual items including images. I tend to blog twice every week and share work on social medias. Its just been a year and I’ve already seen vast changes in my site traffic.
