Doc Posted October 16, 2017 Share Posted October 16, 2017 Dear Alamy, Since the changes of last December to the Search Engine we have found that it is almost impossible to determine which of our own images in a particular search are likely to appear earliest. Prior to that it was usually the images that were keyworded last that tended to appear highest in the searches. Many of us who have been contributing to Alamy for many years are pretty much aware of which of our images are most likely to be wanted by purchasers and will therefore sell. I know that Alamy have always said to contributors "Only upload your best images", but you will be well aware that different images sell for different reasons. An example of this occurred last year when, in late November, having returned fro South Africa, I first of all uploaded several images related to the airports and flights - these went in on page 2, but I uploaded them first as although they will sell, I had much better images of Cape Town/South Africa. Then the new changes hit, and now in a search for Cape Town my airport images appear near the top of the search and all others are lower. Surely this facility would enable both us and Alamy to improve business and sales - ? Kind regards Kumar (the Doc one) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
