I am concerned that I am not getting SEO credit with photoshelter. I used Beam in the past but was not happy with the fact it was not text or SEO friendly. So I switched to using Wordpress as my front end web site and Photoshelter as my image archive. Hence, http://james-pratt.com points to my Wordpress site and http://archive.james-pratt.com points to my Photoshelter beam site. All of that works. But when I go browse galleries or image pages at archive.james-pratt.com the URL switches to jamespratt.photoshelter.com. When I to an image search in Google it shows photoshelter, not my site. In Google Webmaster tools I am getting errors saying jamespratt.photoshelter.com is not allowed on my domain, so my pages are not getting indexed. I don't think I am getting SEO credit from my photoshelter images.
Since I switched to Wordpress as my front end my google rankings have gone WAY up, so very, very happy with Wordpress and becoming less and less impressed with photoshelter as a web site. Great image archive and way to deliver images to clients, but from what I can tell Photoshelter sucks for SEO, which they claim they are great at.
Anyone else see the same thing?
