The importance of rekeywording - is it true?
Since I've started uploading photos on stock sites, I've been constantly reading articles and learning more about this whole industry.
In the last few months I read a lot and learnt about keywording. When I first started uploading I was really bad at keywording, which seems to be one of the most powerful ways to bring buyers to your work. It was a nuisance to find at least 10 good keywords, and I often added others related only hypothetically to the image.
Therefore, about a month ago, when I found some time, I started rekeywording my old photos. I was stunned to see the small number of keywords I added back then and how stupid some of them were. So, I put some work into it, and now my photos are better keyworded.
Since then, I've been waiting to see a boost in the views numbers, but nothing spectacular actually happened. Maybe I'm just to eager and this is a thing that will happen in time. I do not dispute the importance of rekeywording and I recommend everyone to take a look back to when they started and improve the keywords (and title, description as well!).
Share your experience with me and let me know if you noticed any changes in "popularity" after rekeywording your images :)
