  1. Dear meanderingemu I meant you no offense. I was simply trying to illustrate how you could hit 50 keywords without compromising your CTR If people were looking for a group of women and a man in the street having the man would help. Someone may well be searching for female politicians who are lawyers.. and they may well be searching for this particular female politician whose work includes advocating for transparency and anti-corruption in government .. It's the focus of the image. It's what the image is about. It's political. It would have interest for someone searchin
  2. meanderingemu I took the liberty of keywording your image to a data count of 49. If you added the city you would have 50. and no penalty on your CTR. As mentioned above; synonyms, hierarchy and plural terms can be added to enhance access points in search . women, standing, election, stand, smiling, electioneering, sign, looking at camera, direct gaze, outside, city, street, Croatia, Europe, European, elections, group, coats, candidate, candidates, building trust, relationships, politics, political, campaign, campaigners, campaigning, female, man, leaflets, mandate, su

Interesting nonetheless why they would create 'database noise' - (people adding plurals to reflect speech and thought patterns) when they could have reduced this..
  4. hello. it may have done in the past, it does not now. Alamy are (currently) running a 'free text system' so stemming is likely to be one of the few controls they have been able to enforce.

Also 'card', 'cart', 'carp', and yes 'cars' would be returned but results could be diluted to the point of irrelevance. Technology changes a lot.. and so do advancements in
  5. hello. as a keyworder who has worked with Alamy since 2010 and spent many years interrogating keywords for accurate visual relevance - requirements for full discoverability include.. keywords 45+ supertags 10. 'optional fields': people / release info / location / date / primary (and secondary) category captions also now contribute to search. When keywording, it may be helpful to consider both hierarchy and synonyms a chair for example is also furniture and a seat, seating - it will also have been made during a time period and be of a certain material
  6. hello. as a keyworder who has worked with Alamy since 2010 and spent many years interrogating keywords for accurate visual relevance - requirements for full discoverability were identified quite early on in this conversation.. keywords 45+ supertags 10. 'optional fields': people / release info / location / date / primary (and secondary) category captions also contribute in a small way to search. Regarding the addition of 'loosely related keywords', it may be helpful to consider both hierarchy and synonyms a chair for example is also furniture and a seat, s
