Directory of Wedding Industry Platforms, Directories, and Blogs
As a company that does web design and SEO for so many wedding focused clients, I decided to research and put together this comprehensive directory of resources for the following purposes:
Allow national and online wedding vendors and those offering products, numerous places to look for exposure to grow their audience and sales
Give local wedding vendors the opportunity to expand their exposure, as well as some blogs, have a section designated for local vendors sourced geographically
Create a resource where all wedding industry businesses can explore opportunities to improve their SEO in one of the most important areas that Google values to improve ranking, acquiring quality backlinks. While some of the article opportunities are paid sponsorships, besides the exposure, a wedding blog with a large audience is a very quality backlink because of the rich combination that Google values, popularity, and relevance to your business.
Please feel free to email me at [email protected] with questions and comments. Also if there are resources you want to suggest we add to this directory.
Want to have your own high traffic website. Consider purchasing either WeddingPlanning.info (60,000 monthly searches) or WeddingIdeas.info (22,000 monthly searches). The .com, .net or .org of these domains are either not being used or do not have an updated, mobile-friendly site. Developing these domains into a rich blog or directory site can rank highly on Google with the right approach. Email me at [email protected]
