good feature.

Most of the time hit it right, but my last image downloaded:

imageid=3180709 had the keyword 3756671......??????

The image title is together and represent a bunch of hands.

I mean what keyword is this ...3756671.....?

Now a bit confused :-)

Lucian, if you read the earlier posts with similar questions you'll notice that it may just as well be one of those rare cases. A contributor searched by ID (that other ID number you mentioned), then browsed manually and bought your photo.

Thank you DT; very interesting feature for now and I'm sure I will figure out how to learn from it shortly.



I'm seeing one thing already ... being at the front of the search results is a bit over-rated. Looking thru a couple of mine, the image that was purchased was pretty deeply buried ... the buyer was apparently willing to look thru a lot of pages to find what they really wanted. Of course being at the front helps, but I see now that buyers to take the time to look thru at least in some cases.

I don't know for sure - but perhaps someone was looking for your portfolio and (I've done this often) first searched from your name under keywords without success - then they used the photographer database to find you and visually found an image they were after.

The feature will be very handy for identifying the very keywords that worked in your case. It will allow you to see that usually it is not the plain spam, very popular words that sell (such as "business") but more subtle ones. It will allow you to see that spamming the database will not work, as no one will use "business" to download your image of a pretty lady in the woods. ;)

It will allow you to see what exactly sells for you and start to shoot more in that direction. Be creative and innovative using this feature, but don't use it for spam!



The information started to be collected on Jan.4 through a special set of scripts. Information before this date will not be available. Also, downloads made through visual search features (such as collections, ligthboxes, featured tabs, etc.) will not show anything (but n/a).



In some cases (below 1%) there might be a discrepancy between what shows there and what the buyer actually used for downloading.



Have fun using it and please don't hit F5 that often ;)




Wonderful feature!

Good step forward, the more search log info we get the better we will be able to fill needs, gaps etc.

thanks, you are most likely right - a few of those strangely-keyworded sales follow each other, so it's probably browsing port after initial unsuccessful search by kw :)
