I thought the above was an old thread but it is dated 18 June 2024.

 

That is not clear when you look at the forum home page which is why I have reposted. 

 

 

The webinar will take place on Tuesday 9th July 2024 at 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM BST.

The title of the thread is a little misleading. I thought you were asking if I'd seen the webinar and I wondered how I had missed it. It is not until next month. Maybe you should have asked if we saw the announcement?

The keywording webinar was great! Now I have a new problem - paring my list of keywords to no more than 50. 

Hello there, I'm really pleased you enjoyed the webinar and found it helpful, thanks for coming! Keeping within the limit of 50 keywords is something that gets easier with practice. Focus on relevance and don't forget those Supertags!

include both "corporate sponsorship"

as well as "corporate" and "sponsorship" as keywords.

thanks mate

corporate sponsor ~2800 hits on Alamy

corporate sponsorship ~3000 hits on Alamy

evidencing both are valid, IMO

I only had former so I added 'sponsorship" to my (135) images...

little improvements here there everywhere...

well yes. You also need sponsor, sponsorship, company sponsor, company sponsorship, corporate sponsor, corporate sponsorship, sponsors

 

previous post was about single keywords vs keywords with two or more words in

Yes I think that's the key point from Steve's example.

Tests show, if a phrase entered in the tags exactly matches the sequence of search words used by a customer, the image is significantly promoted in the results.

It would be a lot more straightforward if Alamy told us how their tagging works. 

 

I understand why they don't but then why offer us help in the form of expert advice. 

I agree and in that way we can appropriately keyword images that helps buyers, Alamy and ourselves to put forward images that the buyer will purchase

I asked a few questions and I'm sure others did as well, hopefully some of those questions will see the light of day in Sophie's review. The time went very quickly, an hour didn't seem long enough and it was clear that Clemency wasn't able cover everything that she had planned, it would have been good to see how she dealt with the 'Optional' tab in AIM for example and she actually said that she wasn't going to be looking at 'Discoverability' which from Alamy's point of view was probably a good thing.

As has been said, the importance of text strings as keywords was covered as were 'Concepts', easy to forget to add those. I notice that when searching in Alamy a buyer will see suggestions come up as they type, including text strings, has it always done that? It can be useful to use those as a starting point where relevant.
