Is certainly interesting, but I probably have to understand better the utility of this feature.



"Hippopotamus" as keyword for this image is almost incredible (I do not have any hippo image in my portfolio)

Posted by Anchesdd (above): "Hippopotamus" as keyword for this image is almost incredible (I do not have any hippo image in my portfolio)



When I search for images I often go off at tangents using some of the many ways that exist to get round this site.



For example, I could do a search for 'hippopotamus' (if I can spell it!) and find an image of a hippopotamus. I might then see something in the 'similar images' shown on that page and click on that. Next, I might decide I want to see more of that photographer's work and go to their portfolio page. From there I could choose to look at one of that contributor's 'favourite photographers'. I might end up downloading an image which has nothing to do with my original search for 'hippopotamus'.



That's the sort of thing I might do when searching for an image, and I'm guessing that's how you might have sold an image with no relevance to the keyword used to find it.



Lots of different ways to get around the site and, like this new keywords feature, all of them are useful.

OK, call me a moron, but I cannot find this feature. I've tried in Safari and Firefox (both on the Mac), but I don't see a column on the earnings page showing searchers' keywords.

Just wanted to post an update. After having this feature for awhile I am absolutely loving it. Sometimes people are finding my images through keywords I almost didn't include or in ways I would not have guessed. This is an awesome tool and is really helping me to keyword future images. Thanks again! :)

Some of the search drift, I suppose we can call it, is quite incredible. Someone searching for "tiara prom" bought two photos, both of the mangled remains of cars involved in probably fatal crashes.

When was your last image sale? I notice you've only 3 sales, and if they occurred before the feature was introduced you will not see the keywords used.

Please, read the first post - it's clearly explained there. There you'll also find why you may not be seeing it yet for your sold images (pay attention to the dates mentioned).

Ah! My eyes skipped right over the line several times, even after you directed me to it. My bad!



Thanks for the help--I appreciate it.

I believe I found a minor bug, or it is a great coincidence. An image was sold the other day with the search keywords "universal studio", which are unrelated to it, but I understand this is not uncommon because of the situations explained above.



However, the same image sold today and the sales report shows the same keywords. I tend to believe that this time would be a "n/a", but instead the system repeated the previous result.



Has anyone had this same result? This is the image:

"...the same image sold today and the sales report shows the same keywords..."



Since this feature was introduced, I've only had one image that has been downloaded twice. It seems the same keyword, 'savoy', was used to find the image on both occasions. It's a totally appropriate word to use when looking for a picture of a cabbage, but even so, you'd expect the search criteria to be slightly different, for example 'savoy' and 'cabbage', or 'savoy cabbage' and 'vegeatable', etc.



Also, two different images were downloaded at the same time, both using the keyword 'shock'. This word is only appropriate to one of the images but as they are both from the same series, the second one could have been found using the 'see more pictures of this model' feature. Quite logical.



However, what you describe is much more unusual. I wonder if the previous keyword is sticking on subsequent downloads. Is anyone else noticing this?

I just had a DL and it has n/a under it. How can you tell whether it was a lightbox or collection selection (which you say wouldn't show the keywords used) or just a glitch in the system that caused it not to show the keywords? Just curious. This image of mine has sold 4 times, but I have no clue where/how the sales are coming. I'm just grateful they are, but it would be nice to know how. Thanks!

As usual Lisa has phrased my own thoughts much better than I could have. It's a very useful and instructional feature.
