    Hi all,

    I am Manish a wedding photographer based in Vancouver area. I stumbled upon this forum while trying to read reviews of a software. What a gem of information to be accessed from a single place. Thank you all for sharing your knowledge. I am new to SEO.

    Here's my story. I use adwords. A number of SEO companies use up my clicks shamelessly to market their services to me. Even earlier today morning, I got a telemarketing call. While I appreciate that they are trying to stay in business just as I am, it does bug me as they likely used up one click and each click costs me upwards of $2 right now. I tried two SEO companies in past to help with my different wedding photography websites. After the initial sales BS, and taking my money, I found it the hard way that it is in my own interest to DIY as much as possible. While I have spent money on adwords, it showed me returns on investments so I am ok with it. I eventually want to get on first page in organic search as well. I am pretty much a one man show and will contract photographers for larger wedding shoots.

    I hope to learn and start contributing to the SEO forums eventually as my skills levels develop.

    Wow sometimes I surprise myself with the amount I end up talking. What was supposed to be a quick hello and introduction turned up into almost a post :)

    Once again thank you for the wealth of information.

    Manish

    Welcome to BHW Manish! :)

    I found this very helpful when I first started learning SEO: http://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo

    Also when it comes to SEO don't believe everything that you've read until you have tested it out for yourself.

    PS: When you get enough posts, PM me. I may need a wedding photographer in the near future :eek:
