For about 2 years now, I’ve tried to get Google to index my 700+ photos on Smugmug (and blogged about it, starting here.). At the start, I had 38 photos indexed. Today, after learning a few things about SEO, creating a blog, and jumping through lots of hoops, I have exactly 10. I can’t convey the taste of failure in print – but this is what it looks like:
In a series of posts starting here, I’ve related my efforts to get Google to index my SmugMug photo gallery. It’s time for another update: basically, Google seems to have just pulled that cord that lets the hot air out of my balloon. I’m going down.
I have photos on a couple of “Print On Demand” sites. Every so often, one of those forums lights up with a thread about Adobe RGB versus sRGB. Which one should I use? Don’t photos look better in Adobe color space? Why don’t my images look the same on this site as they do on my computer?
Hooooo boy. The real answers to these questions are… complicated.
In a previous post I explained how Google wasn’t indexing my photos at SmugMug, and in another post I detailed how attacked that problem by creating a blog site and putting my SmugMug site on a subdomain.
I think I might be seeing some payoff. But only maybe.
