This is by far the most difficult way to get found for most people in the modeling industry – especially from your Model Mayhem page. This is because the search results usually give you 10 websites per page and usually only about 2 of them will be from Model Mayhem.
As an SEO consultant I can tell you that search engines don’t just pick random sites to land on the top page of the results. There is a very specific reason why you either get found or get lost. I have clients all over the world that I help get found and there are many things that have to be done in order to land on the top few pages. Just having a page on Model Mayhem is not a guarantee that you will show up on the top page.
Most people in the modeling industry work hard at promoting themselves and yet they still have little success in Google or any other search engine. There are so many factors for that and I don’t want to bore you anymore than I already am! I also don’t want to discourage you from trying. I just want to show you how to work smarter for better results.
When you search a general phrase (not using the term “Model Mayhem” in the search bar) you get a variety of results. Model Mayhem might show up on the top page with a couple of results but it’s usually no more than that. This means you have a 2 in 600,000+ chance that it’ll be you for one of those 2 results. That’s not exactly great odds. And those people that do show up are there because they are doing something right which gets them noticed in the search engines.
Search engines use 200 different algorithms (codes that look for specific things on a website or page) – That’s a lot! Most people don’t even have 200 words on their Model Mayhem page and words are only part of the 200 algorithms. We will show you how to increase your odds on your model mayhem page and hopefully get you found more – and that means more jobs!
