Showing results for tags 'searching'.
I created my Alamy profile a few days ago and passed the QC with the first set of 3 images. I then added the tags, super tags and optional content along with caption, all three images turned green "on sale". I gave it 2-3 days after adding all the metadata and then made searches on the platform to see if my pictures are appearing in the search. Even with super tags that are also a part of my caption, I do not see any of my 3 pictures appearing on search. A glitch: When I download the data from AIM, I see all the tags and supertags in the csv, but the status for all three images is "Not On Sale". On my Contributor dashboard I see that it says "3 images with good or optimized discoverability are on sale". I don't really know whether my images are on sale or not. The images not showing up on the search and inconsistent metadata information is not helping me understand what's going on. Could you kind people, please suggest what else can I check to understand what's going wrong - do I need to wait for a few more days so the images are re-indexed or is this a case of genuine bad keywording? Thanks a lot in advance.
Till the past week I have been able to search the contributor forum by inserting by surname in the search box above. This enabled me to find sales, comments etc. No longer it seems, unless I am doing something wrong?? Thank you for any help with this, in advance and thank you to all those continuing to list found usages. Kathy
Betty LaRue posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceI take it now that when we check for sales just dropping in we can’t put a date further ahead than today’s date. Right? Or am I missing a trick? Betty
Anybody else notice that if you do a seach on a term, say 'horse', then click on the first image, then use the back button (on Windows), the search goes to the top of page 7, not back to page 1!! I've tried 5 different searches and they all do the same. Is it just me? John. I was accessing the Alamy page from another page found using Google. It seems to work correctly if you go through Alamy directly.
