Hello members!!!

I hope you are doing well. I have a query related to the titles. Should we write one title or more than one title for images, illustrations, or videos? Whatever the type is my concern is to be sure if one title is enough to get ranked. Or what type of title should we write? Also, I will feel honored if you can guide me on tags. Whether the tags from the title or is there any way to get them ranked?

I will be thankful for your valuable suggestions and guidance.

Regards

You can use a few sentences/phrases in the title, if you want. The main thing is that all of them must be relevant to your asset. And what about tags, "borrowing" words from the title to tags is absolutely okay and even preferable.

Have you read Adobe's guidance on this subject? Titles should be as descriptive as possible. There can only be one title per asset since there is only one title field on the submission screen.

Your question confuses me a bit, and it may be that the question you have formulated in English is not what you wanted to ask if formulated in your language.

You need one title for each asset, and I think that if the subject is the same, as “a girl is playing with a ball”, you should bring in variations that describe the image more precisely, like “the girl is running after the ball” or “a girl catches the ball”. That would add to the chance of being featured by search. The keywords could reflect the main topic with slight variations in the order of the keywords, part of the title could be the same.

 

Your aim would be to get at least one picture ranked for the user searching, and then getting the others featured in the “similar” tab.

In my experience the title don't matter much. it's the image - and maybe the keywords - that matter. Look at the images in the best selling ports - they are VERY short. By the way - I myself cant't stop elaborating ... maybe I shoud stop and make it simple.

It's my understanding that tiles are now searchable and therefore important. That said, a title is nothing to stress over. Simply describe the image without embellishment and use the words in the title as one's initial keywords. It's not like titling a book, where three or four words are supposed to encompass the entire image. I forget offhand how many letters can be used to describe the asset, but it's a liberal amount. Just don't feel the need to use them all.  Browse through the Adobe Stock web site and get a feel for how others are describing their images. That's not to say everyone is doing them correctly or as "best practices," but the OP might get some inspiration by looking what others are doing.

For quite some time now, titles have been searchable and are very important in terms of Buyers being able to locate your images. Try searching on the titles of a few of your assets to confirm.

The old recommendation was: titles matter for outside search like Google. During that time, titles were not indexed by the internal search engine.

The new recommendation is: Titles matter, and a combination of the title and the keyword help you to get best results.

 

So, the most useful your title is, and the most relevant your keywords are, the best it is.
