If I use a a keyword for my image in which my Image has the chance to rank top on that keyword, but I also used the keyword which has very very big of number of people using it, will it effect my image's ranking from the previous keyword?

You should only use keywords which actually apply to and describe your image. Beyond that, no one knows how specific keywords affect the search ranking. Don't try to game the system by applying nonsensical, inappropriate keywords, which will probably have the opposite effect.

Every serious contributor uses keywords that have a chance to rank top and that a large number of buyers use when searching. That sort of cancels their whole purpose.  That is why the search algo also uses image recognition, number of views, number of sales, upload date and much more. Do not try to crack the system. Follow the guidelines and with time and quality images you should see results.

Ok, so how you find keywords that have the chance to rank top? I mean when keywording your image, How do you guys find that this keyword should be or shouldn't be used?

It's better to first come up with a relevant and descriptive title before worrying about keywords. With a good, descriptive title, keywording the asset becomes natural. Pick the most important keywords within that title and list them first. From there, consider synonyms of the words used in the title and what words you yourself might use as search terems if you yourself were looking for that specific asset.

The best is to have keywords to the point. It does not help to have London, Paris, and Berlin together as keywords, if what you show is Brussels. People won't buy your assets if you add the wrong keywords. The search algorithm will take that into account to calculate the asset's popularity.

Hi @DailyLifeImages ,

Your keywording must be relevant and describes your image. Otherwise one of two things will happen: Your file plunges to the bottom of the search engine or your account gets suspended. 

It is more beneficial to your file if the words of you caption is within the first 10 keywording. 

If you have 6 species of cats and the first three keywords used on all files are "cat"; "cute"; "feline", it will allow the search engine to find all six cats lining them up under the caption "More from this series" when a view clicks on one. However, it does not necessarily means that all six cats will be at the top of the search. It could be that only one is. A number of factors determines where on the search each file ranks. Clicks or views and licencing play vital roles.

Not sure where you're getting your information, but no...that would not be a reason for suspension.

How do you know if your image remains at the bottom? Low-ranked / unsold images don't cause suspension. Only violations of the T&C's and guidelines are causes for suspension.

No, your account will not be suspended for low ranking. Your account will be suspended for boosting your rank with improper means.

You ask a lot of questions that have nothing to do with being a successful Stock Contributor.  Why?

 

  • Focus on creating high quality content. The rest will take care of itself. 
  • Trust the program.
  • Don't over-think this.  It's not complicated. Over-thinking leads to paralysis from analysis.

 

To enjoy a steady 2nd income from stock, you need a diverse portfolio of 6,000 or more images. 

How close are you to that goal?

In my experience it's fortunately the image and not so much the keywords or how many keywords - as long as they are relevant for the image of course ..!

Effective titles and keywords are of critical importance in getting your images seen by Buyers. Your image can be technically perfect, unique and stunningly beautiful, but if you don't use keywords accurately and effectively, a Buyer will never see it.

By @oleschwander

To find an image and to stand out, you need to have relevant titles. You need to have relevant keywords. Only after that comes a good image, that pops into your eyes on the results page.

 

What does it help to have the best image of the world, if user's searches do not bring it at the first screen in search?
