MDM Posted October 2, 2013 Share Posted October 2, 2013 I've noticed recently I've had large numbers of views on search terms such as [MR] Dublin or [MR] Cork Ireland. Now most of my images are without people so they usually get marked as 0 people. The few that do contain people are marked as no model release with the number of people ticked. But Alamy search is bringing up all images which are keyworded Dublin, say, and do not have any people - in other words what one would expect with a search such as [WOP] Dublin, not [MR] Dublin. Obviously this is having a negative effect on my zooms/views ratio as it has spuriously increased my current month views by about 50%. Aside from the negative effect on contributor zoom/view ratio and ultimately Alamy rank, it must be very annoying for buyers to get huge numbers of spurious results containing no people, when they are really searching for model released images containing people. OK perhaps they should have searched [WP][MR] Dublin but surely the search engine is not meant to work like this. [MR] should automatically include [WP] as an intrinsic search term Looking back over the past year in my Alamy Measures, this does appear to be a recent phenomenon or is it? I vaguely recall this being discussed in the old forum. Surely it is not meant to work like this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
