SEO for Filmmakers

on Monday, Oct. 7th

Digital marketing expert Annelise Larson has the latest post in a series on search engine optimization for filmmakers up at Ted Hope's Truly Free Film blog today.

Look: SEO can often be seen as a kind of "Dark Arts" of web design, but at its heart the practice is all about making sure that search engines can read your site and won't shove it down the page in search results because of formatting errors.

For those who live their lives online SEO can read a lot like common sense. For example:

#5 – Manage your page load times.

Google and Bing want to return sites that offer the best user experience and slow loading sites just don't do it. Human visitors will also likely bail on your site if it takes too long to load, so it just makes sense to ensure your site is nimble and easy to load.

Give it a dive in.
