Keywording and keywording order

Recommended Posts

Hi there


I have a question about keywording. When we are tagging the images is the order of keywords important? Or it simply doesn't change anything? I am asking because I am thinking about starting keywording in Lightroom (Now I am doing that in Alamy image manager) and as we all know Lightroom automatically is organizing the keywords in alphabetical order.


Is there any difference about the first keyword and the last?

Thank you for a fast reply Geoff! Really helpful. I will be keywording in LR then, in case I would ever think about submitting in different agency/agencies.


You mean "black dog" as a one keyword?

That's an easy test anyone can do in 2 minutes:

Try searching for

Black dog London


Black London dog

If after this you think you just found out that word order does not make a difference, then now search for:

London Big Ben


Big Ben London.
