Sometimes buyer finds your photo using very unexpected keyword or combination of keywords. Like in this photo - how on earth the buyer managed to find my photo using just one keyword - "awesome"? And why someone looking for "awesome" would by a photo of a guitar?

awesome
   Guitar in perspective   

I put plenty of keywords, and likely had this phrase "awesome perspective". I wouldn't expect anyone finding my photo using simply "awesome".

Another example, probably making slightly more sense:

unusual
   Stairway   

So - here is the game: post here your photos with most strange / unexpected keyword or keyword combination (something which has no obvious connection to your photo). And put the keyword(s) used to find your photo above the photo.

"Woman serve husband" was used to find this.



   Elderly man annoyed and pointing his finger.   




Those words- woman, serve or husband do not appear at all in the title, description or keywords.

Looks like their search engine has issues. How can it find something that doesn't exist?

Once a search is performed the words searched on are listed as the "buyer searched after" words even if the searcher wanders off from the original search. They may click on an image that is below the results and then another and then another which might take them far from the original search words. If they haven't entered a second set of words in the search box the first set remains and the chosen image is credited with the original words. Man is in the keywords here and it may have been associated with husband and that image showed up somewhere along the searcher's journey. Lucky for Clearvista in this case.

My topic was actually for legitimate keywords (present in your photo description), only the choice of a specific keyword or their combination should appear strange - like in the two examples I posted at the beginning.

We have recently added one FAQ that may clarify a bit the presence of unusual/unexpected keywords in the "buyer searched for" section:

I see we now have a ? in the "buyer searched after" box of a sale in "your earnings" page. that leads us into the link that Tangie was pointing out earlier.

Wow, I'm impressed with the new FAQ setup, it's easier to read. When did that happen? Great new look. Perhaps when the site look was changed this changed too. I haven't looked at the FAQs in awhile. Whenever it happened, Kudos DT!

This made me laugh. Someone searched for "lion" and ended up buying these two files. Interesting. The deviations can be THAT extreme!
