MAKING A CASE FOR METADATA

You capture, photoshop and prep that image file to share or post. Is embedding metadata a part of your workflow? We’ll share findings from our surveys, investigative studies, and anecdotal reports that will make the case why you won’t ever want to skip this essential step to more effectively promote, protect, manage and archive your digital images.
Presented by David Riecks, SAA PhotoMetadata Project Leader

5:30 to 6:15

HOW METADATA MAKES YOU MONEY: SEO for Photographers

Understand how search engines work and how to get found by them. In this session, we’ll share the recipe to strong Search Engine Optimization – a discussion of key SEO tactics from the PhotoShelter Photographer’s SEO Cookbook.  Great SEO for your photography starts with metadata – how you name and describe your files, your captions and keywords.  From there, you’ll need a smart keyword strategy in specific areas throughout your website.  Plus, as search engines evolve (almost daily), your metadata will play an even more critical role in helping Google – and hence, new clients – find you online.  Photographers seeking success marketing their photography online – with and without website design experience – will benefit from this discussion.
Presented by
Allen Murabayashi, PhotoShelter Co-Founder and CEO.

6:15 to 6:45

GETTING FOUND: Using the Right Metadata Fields, Standards, and Tools

Exactly what kind of information do you need to embed to ensure that your images can be found, as well as ensure that YOU can be found? We’ll explain why captions and keywords are critical, along with entering copyright and contact information into every digital file. Then we’ll guide you to use proper metadata standards and meta-friendly tools to ensure that the information you’ve now embedded can be easily accessed and read by others.
Presented by David Riecks.
