How do I best approach common SEO techniques for <snip>?
The problem here is the content is all image based, so other than Friendly URLS, H1/H2 tags, Sitemap, RSS Feed, Alt Img, what else can be done to gain search rankings?
Any ideas would be interesting to hear.
Please remember that all review requests, including SEO reviews, should be made through the Reviews & Critiques forum, in accordance with its [URL=“http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?744418-Read-before-requesting-a-review”]guidelines.
You can request general advice and information in this forum, but not an SEO review of a specific site.
Sites that consist mainly of images will usually do badly in search results (except perhaps for image searches, which is a special case). Search engines really need text for indexing a page. Unless you have plenty of relevant text, the engine can’t know what the page is about, and so will tend to exclude it from search results.
So, what exactly are you trying to achieve with your site? Are you in the business of selling photos, and the aim of the site is to attract potential customers? If so, you should add text that includes the keywords that customers are likely to search for. Or do you simply want to show off the photos to your friends? If so, stop worrying about SEO; there are plenty of ways of telling your friends about the site.
But, in general, adding plenty of relevant text is likely to be the answer to your question.
