Jill Morgan Posted October 2, 2014 Share Posted October 2, 2014 I was going back into some of my original images to perk up the keywords anywhere I thought I could. And I noticed something. In the beginning, I thought you had to add commas when keywording, so I did. About 6 months ago I did some re-keywording on some images and didn't bother adding the commas. Notice the difference in how they appear in the image listing. This is how they appear in the image listing: 5, African landscape, animal, animals, baby, big, camouflage, cat, cute, five, game drive, grassland, lion cub, Lioness, lions,mammal, mammals, nature, nobody, outdoors, outside, panthera leo, predator, predatory, serengeti plains, Serengeti plains safari,Stalking lion, wild, wildlife, young My original keyword phrases appear together that had had commas inserted by me. The keywords I added later without commas all strictly come alphabetically. So it would seem whether you put commas, brackets, or quotes, any punctuation that you put in that keeps certain words together will show as one phrase in the keyword list. As long s they are put in by you and not later by Alamy. Not that it is helpful to us the photographer, but certainly more helpful to the searching customer who wants to click on a keyword for other photos.
