Hello everyone! I am a photographer from China, I like photography, my photos based mainly on Chinese scenery, I do not know if I have a good sale on this web site? I hope to hear your views! At the same time, I want to know whether the customers like these photos? These photos sell okay? Thank you!

Hi,

First of all remove the "scientific name" from the titles. Since there is not much of a competition in scientific names. You can put the latin names in the description and keywords. Keep your titles as "to the point" as possible. The search engine looks for title, description and keywords to find your images. You can also check for other images to find out how to keyword your images. Keywording is pretty important, cause it is what makes you visible and puts you in front of others.

On the other hand, since you are taking scenery images. You should keep the word China in the titles, where it is appropriate (the image should be relevant to China.) I mean, not many people will look for Yandang Mountain, but many will look for the word "China".

Listen to Parkinsonsniper, for two years he had almost 1000 sales but suddenly, in two months he added another 400 to the sells count!

He must have found the holly grail of selling artworks!

:) Bogdanzagan, I always try to step up my photography, but (unfortunately) there is no sudden jump.

My sales grow slowly, according to my uploads. Honestly, I had 150 sales in the last two months total...not much difference from earlier months.

Hi, Qin0377! For example your picture "Wulanbu EC prairie morning" that is wonderful, you could add more keys like : nature, landscape, sunrise, sunlight, clouds, meadow, idyllic, countryside, tranquil, magnificent, silent, heaven........
Try to pay attention to keywords and put more.Also several synonyms.Good luck! Don't give up! Keep uploading, be patient and have fun!
Best regards, Lenuta!

Thank you for giving me good advice! I will correct. In particular aspects of the keyword. I will be more careful.

Yes, the keywords and titles are an useful route to the Holy Grail! :-)
I think the blog in DT could help... take a look on:

Good Luck.
