Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers

Pittsburgh Wedding PhotographersIt seems to be that time of year when people of Pittsburgh start planning their weddings. One of the biggest challenges is finding a photographer that is not only affordable, but also does a great job at preserving memories. Let’s face it, you’ll want to look back on that special day and giggle at how silly you looked in that polka-dotted tuxedo. Regardless, the best of the best are Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers.

Joking aside, finding a wedding photographer is going to be one of the most stressful things when planning our wedding. Be sure you ask for references, availability and ultimately a portfolio of work.

As for ideas of photo shoots, there are actually some beautiful backdrops around Pittsburgh that are perfectly romantic for wedding photos. In fact, my good friends actually had a few of their wedding photographs taken in front of the beautiful Pittsburgh skyline, which ALSO included the old Three Rivers Stadium. I’ve also found that the downtown skyline is a top choice among Pittsburgh wedding photographers for their backdrops.

Top 5 Search Engines

top-5-search-enginesSearch engine optimization is my number one passion, so when I hear anything related to search engines and the promoting of websites as a paid service, I get a little suspect.

Most recently I heard a commercial from Verizon that states they will promote your new business website to hundreds of search engines.  100s? get real.   There is nothing I hate more than hearing commercials that tell folks that they will submit their website to 100s or 1000s of search engines.

Seriously, when you are searching for something on the internet, you typically (and so do millions of others) go straight to Google or Bing. Am I right? 

The fact of the matter is that there are not 100 legitimate search engines to submit your sites too.  Heck, it is even pointless to even make an effort.  The key is to remain focused and promote to those search engines that you already know about.  I only know and MAYBE use about 3 search engines, but for the sake of keeping a standard list of 5 (I was going to do 5 plus a bonus 5 engines, but that would be as stupid as something something with a something something), in no order of importance.  So here we go with the list

Top 5 Search Engines as recommend by ME, Tony Rocks.

  1. Google – What really else is there?  They have great listings, integrated social content, and a killer image search to steal photos for your office presentations.
  2. Bing – Though not as good as Google, (in fact, the engine has been accused of stealing results from Google) it does have a nice image search too.
  3. Yahoo – Wait, you know, come to think of it, I can’t remember the last time I used Yahoo to search for anything. Maybe it doesn’t deserve to be on the Top 5 Search Engines.

There you have it, my Top 5 Search Engines as Recommended by Me.  Wait…I only listed 3?  Well, if you can find me 2 more search engines, worthy of being in the top 5, please send them along! Smile
