Hi.
I have images on for sale that are under category "poor discoverabilty". What does that mean and how I can make sure they fall under a good discoverability? Thank you

Try a search on the forum. The consensus is that it doesn't matter if you keyword well and that Alamy though it was a good idea at the time, but it wasn't.

Two-thirds of mine are orange and I'm doing precisely nothing about it. Nor is anyone else AFAIK.

It looks as though you have not added any keywords/ tags and all pictures have the same caption. You need to add more info to your pictures.

The forums are full of information about this, so have a read and see what the general opinions are on discoverability.

 

You need to put more details in your captions and add relevant tags, and also take care on your image processing. There are 100 million images on Alamy and you are in competition with experienced professional photographers.
