Upper vs lowercase tags?


Go to solution Solved by Robert M Estall,

Question

Does it matter whether tags are upper or lower case?  If a buyer searches on for example "Cake" with uppercase first letter, will results for "cake" in all lowercase show up? 

I ask because I was entering tags and saw that I had the same tag in twice, one with first initial uppercase, one with it all lower, and it accepted both of them.  So I wonder if there is a difference. Thank you.

However if you have too many repeats Cake, cakes, then all you are doing is using up the limited keyword/tag space  50 is the maximum on most sites.

 

Also if you are submitting to royalty free sites like sh*****stock then they have a policy about spamming keywords (repeats) which will get the image rejected and if it persists then the contributor stands a good chance of having their account closed.

makes no difference. And repeats are accepted. You can put in cake as many times as you like. Some seem to do that frequently

My experience is that you can repeat a tag as a supertag (you get a warning) but if you try to repeat one (in the same case) it's ignored.

Before AIM, the old Flash-based system did show duplicates so perhaps you're seeing them from legacy keywording.

Another thing to note is that punctuation is ignored in search- for example, "close-up" is "close up" (two words) as far as search is concerned. So you may want to have "closeup" as well.
