Firstly, congratulations Keith. A great achievement.


Secondly, this has evolved into an interesting topic on the order of keywords.


I've just done a quick survey running through searches that utilize quotes enclosing phrases. As mentioned above quotes certainly do greatly reduce the number of returns compared to the same but unquoted phrase.


So I then had a look at the number of searches where quotes are used to enclose a phrase. Looking at the first 600 searches in All of Alamy, I only found 1 search that used quotation marks around a phrase.


This is a quick test only but, if this is the case, then I'm wondering whether it is really worthwhile spending countless hours revisiting existing images currently online to bring potential phrase words together.


I may be missing something here so any thoughts would be appreciated.
