Great article, and I feel honoured because you've used my illustration :) Just a little specification: flamenco is a spanish dance, in fact I used keywors like spain, spanish, andalucia. Thanks a lot again!

I sent a photographer to Argentina last year and ALL he came back with were Flamingo dancers. But I stand corrected: yes! Spain and Flamingo Dancing.

Extremely helpful! Thanks for calling keywording what it is: a sleep aid. Makes me want to give a big ATTA BOY (GIRL) to the keyword mentors.

Ellen - Flamingo dancers? Don't you mean Flamenco? There are a few sites on the web that showcase dancing flamingos but I'm sure that is not what you intended in your article. One of the words that drives me nuts when searching is "interesting" (a bolded search word on the first page in the Free Image section of DT). Who searches with the term interesting, the results would be endless?

Thanks. I'll have the spelling changed. I agree "interesting" is a poor keyword.

I searched on "interesting" and found that, yes, most images should have that keyword eliminated but if you look just at the first page I think you'll see at least three images that "interesting' is ok. It certainly describes certain facial expressions and body language of some images but I wonder if the word would be used by designers to find those images.

Putting keywords is quite hard when you don't speak English fluently. It's quite a challenge to me... I also put some non english words sometimes because people may sometimes search in their native languages... I don't know if they really do so...



Anyway, this article is really interesting and I loved reading it !

A lot of great tips.



On the 2nd last point. How about if the search engine could recognize / recognise those variations? I believe it'll save us a lot of time and keyword space.

Before reading the article it would not have occurred to me to use African-American to describe dark skinned people. Would you still use the same description if they were dark skinned English people as they are neither African nor American but British. I consider myself white (skinned) and those of African descent black or brown - is this no longer politically correct in the wider world?

The politically correct terms to use to describe ethnic groups is a very difficult designation as they change now and then. You are correct that 'African American' hardly applies to someone of African descent living in the UK. So some companies use 'of African descent' to describe people of color. But what if you are describing a white African? Just use the most polite form that is the custom in your country and language is the best advice I can give but know that in the US market, users will search on African American or Black.

You got that part right! The current policitally correct term is the 3rd polite one that I can remember. (the earliest one is definitely one that my mother would have washed my mouth out with soap if she'd heard me call someone that!)
