OK peeps do your worst

Recommended Posts

The thing I would work on is nothing to do with the subjects which look fine and interesting but your keywords.

 

If you could put locations and countries in your keywords/tags i.e. Wandsworth, London, England,English, United Kingdom, UK for example

 

Also try and find the latin names for birds animals plants and fungi?  Whether this actually works in searches I've no idea but its often recommended

 

You missed the obvious keyword for this shot "busker" and "busking" also "street" as in street entertainer also music, musician and so on

I also noticed you described her as a "lady" and didn't put "woman" in your keywords. Alamy also suggests putting in age ranges if you are good at judging that.

Love your Robin feeding from hand. Check the difference in the result for a search for Robin hand and Robin on hand. Yours has an excellent rank on both. Don't let it go to waste.

Is it cheeky? Hmm. Do clients ever use cheeky for a Robin? Contributors do.

So yes keywords:

Which yacht? Owned by whom? Maker? Designer? Wharf? How many feet?

Ok it's Kismet. Via Google Images.

The concrete screen could do with the keywords brutalism and brutalist.

Use All of Alamy:

%brutalis% gives me also: brutalism London and brutalism UK.

Maybe also check how many searches there have been in the running year for some of your other favorite subjects.

And find new ones that clients are looking for.

Cheers for the replies

David, I will try to correct keywords and Paulette didn't think of that, a few around that time were key worded very quickly. Mental note go back over previous uploads.

Wim, praise indeed thank you. I have never known how to use All of Alamy properly and obviously I need to think a bit more about the why's and wherefores.

Is there an easy way to learn AOA.

Thanks again

It's not too difficult. There's nothing that can go wrong, so just play with it a bit.

Here are some previous bits of advice to get you started:

Here's a handy keyword tool just put in a few words to describe your image

Then select the "relevant" keywords.  I stress relevant as the keywords are drawn from other contributors and a lot

of them try and cheat the system or have no clue what keywords are really about :D

Thanks David, I usually use http://www.mykeyworder.com that does a similar thing but I’ll give the link a go and I’ve seen quite a few “cheats” too
