I decided to see if other scenic hotspots might become "virtual" destinations of choice. I went through same process with photos I had taken at Garden of Gods State Park in Colorado Springs Colorado as well as a few other Colorado locations. I was pleased that "gardenofthegods" became another key search phrase that brings people to my site.
In past I used my personal web pages to promote my web design and hosting business. Unfortunately, web design and hosting is not that relevant to my guests who come because of scenic interests. After some measure of trial and error I discovered that "entertainment" products market very well to scenic seekers that visit my site.
I began a banner rotation on my photographic pages that link out to various entertainment sites which I affiliate with. So far results have been very encouraging. In a future article I hope to explain what I discovered about keyword searches in entertainment sector.
Let me summarize with these simple instructions. Get those vacation photographs out and upload them to your website. Build a separate page for each exotic location that you have been to. Be sure to enter name of place in your page title and in keywords and description meta-tags. Set up a relevant banner rotation program and enjoy traffic of virtual travel.
