The web doesn’t have a native mechanism for protecting content from copyright infringement. Aside from complex digital rights management solutions, which aren’t really appropriate for photography sites, there’s little a photographer can do to prevent determined infringers from copying images and using them without regard for the photographer’s chosen licence.

"WP Always was a big help in getting my website speed optimized. I will definitely work with them again in the future!"

Summer R. (WordPress Page Speed Optimization) 03/02/21

"WP Always was great to work with. We had them improve our web vital scores and set up a CDN for our site. Communication was a breeze and since technical SEO is not necessarily my forte, Ryan gladly held my hand through the entire process and took time to explain the changes that would take place. Our scores have improved dramatically from failing to passing scores in Search Console. I will most definitely be contacting him again if we need any kind of tech SEO wizardry."
