gvallee Posted April 8, 2016 Share Posted April 8, 2016 I have done an analysis in Measures on filters used in searches over the past year. 1. 50 searches included [DT] Date Taken. While I can see it obviously matters for some subjects, some searches were very generic (savannah, ocean). Perhaps they meant to look for newly uploaded images and should have used the “New” button instead? This leads me to the following dilemma: if I already have a good number of the same subject uploaded a while back, should I add more of the same, jeopardising my CTR but perhaps leading to a sale? 2. Searches with [MR] Model Released: I was surprised to see that some of my images without people, thus no MR, had been picked up. I asked MS the reason. Reply: Alamy tecchies have coded if no person, then Model Released. This is a rather twisted logic, as the result is unhappy customers all round: false hits for photographers, false returns for photo buyer, presumably expecting people. Once again, how can we explain some generic searches like Tumbleweeds, Ant, Storm with MR?? 3. As an added observation, 598 searches included [FS] File Size. I’d be curious to know what size was selected. Any opinion on point 1 anyone? Cheers Gen Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
