Jill Morgan Posted December 14, 2013 Share Posted December 14, 2013 My shots from the zoo finally made it into the search, so I thought I would do some searching to see what else is there. When I typed in "white lion" I got over 6,000 results, but a lot of them were not lions, but pubs by that name, and many other things. When i added Panthera leo krugeri to the search, it dropped down to 97 pictures. That is telling me a lot of people are not including the latin name in their searches, as I know there are more than 97 photos of white lions. I would think many searchers would use the latin name, simply as a filter to get rid of all the non-lion specific shots. Same with cheetah - it drops from over 16,000 to 9,000. And I realized on my original shots from Africa, I haven't included any of the latin names for the animals, so will be re-keywording all of those. Have you guys noticed specific searches for your photos that have been the latin name only, or the common name plus the latin name? Jill Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
