Single words from multiword phrases returned in search


DCSmith

Question

Can this be stopped?

Example, I have some images that have "York Harbor Beach" "New England" and "Mothers Beach" (the local nickname for it).

I get search results for

New York

New York Harbor

New York Mothers

England Beach

England 

 

Etc.

The only single words I have from those is "York" and "Beach"

Most of the searches in my Alamy Measures are like this, with zero zooms and clicks of course.

Gee

That's exactly what I was talking about happening.

 

Gee . . . if you stop long enough to look closely, you'll see that's exactly . . . exactly . . . what everyone who has responded has been talking about. Everyone understands, as every response shows.

 

Seriously, if I were you I'd be much, much more worried about the chance of false positives as a result of your use of irrelevant (or at least unnecessarily ambiguous) keywords--that's an issue you yourself can affect without having to rely on any action from Alamy.

reported bug which Alamy is investigating,  See other thread

https://discussion.alamy.com/topic/12146-strange-result-from-measures/

 

 

That thread gave me my belly laugh for the day - thanks! I'd have given you two greenies, if I could, but you'll have to settle for the official LOL symbol and these: 👍🏻👍🏻

Glad to see the official Alamy sense of humor too.
