Help Needed with Ranking my Website Please.

Is there anyone out there, who can have a look at my website, and give me some tips on how to improve the ranking? Please
http://www.nemosphotography.co.uk
It is only a photograph site. I do not run it to make any money from it...(although I have sold a few pics from it )....  however, before christmas last year it was 3,154,623 in the UK ranks with a value of £391.90  ( WOW ! )
today I just checked and it is now 4,290,893 and a value of £386.58  (ooooer..... !. ).

Re: Help Needed with Ranking my Website Please.

Years ago I happened to take some pictures that interested the BBC. They put an article on their website (see http://www.bbc.co.uk/oxford/pictures/kingfisher_hanney.shtml) and some other pictures of mine that I had used for a village calendar.
As soon as there were links to my little website from the BBC website, my ranking shot up. In fact , for a few years a Google search for "calendar pictures" showed my village calendar on the first page (out of millions of possibles). Goodness know how many disappointed viewers there must have been!
So, there you are. Get a really popular website to include a link or two to yours and see your ranking shoot to the top!

Interesting article, Keith Smiley  and some beautiful photos.
Shutter, you need a dot (not /) after the www Wink  A link from the PlusNet Community site might not be quite equal to a BBC link, but it's still a well-visited site and have seen it many times on the search engines 😕

Re: Help Needed with Ranking my Website Please.

OK... thanks for the comments.... Will have to find someone at the beeb to link my site ! ! ! ..
Thanks for spotting the deliberate mistake....  /  instead of  .    ( now fixed ! )
I do have my full url as part of my sig on the bottom of my postings.. so it gets quite a bit of "airing" from that...
Not sure how to use SEO`s.... but if you do an image search on google for  turkmenian eagle owl  my pic is number one !... and I don`t know how that happened... it has been there for a few years now !

Re: Help Needed with Ranking my Website Please.

shutter, took a look at that website for details for one that I look after which I've managed to get get on to the 1st page of search results for a google search of 'wedding photographers coventry'
http://urlmetrics.co.uk/ seems hopelessly out of date and inaccurate so I wouldn't put too much worth in to it..

Re: Help Needed with Ranking my Website Please.

I'm not sure it is accurate. It values the Facebook website at £615.46 Million, I'm pretty sure it's worth a bit more than that.
