Hello DT world...
HAPPY EASTER ...HOLY PASSOVER...PEACE
Carmen's April Fool secret to search is still hot on my mind
especially with reference to keywords.
I also recall Carmen pointing out to me to be less articulate with my titles as "shorter keywords work better in search"... or words to that effect.
I admit, I am not the world's greatest keyword person, nor am I the most hardworking at that. Coming from a writer's background and one of journalistic flourish and creative writing composing songs,poetry,etc..
I am more astute at adding words rather than removing them.
Like my good looks , I am all flash and no substance, ha!ha!..
Anyway, jokes aside, here is my rediscovery of keyword management
from examining my download listing to see what buyers used as keywords to locate my image. (See Listing below)
The same words keep coming up. The rest , well, as they say, is superfluous.
BIG SURPRISE ! Yes, to me , it was . But to Carmen, I am sure it isn't.
Look and learn. I certainly did, and over the next few days/weeks/etc I am going into my images to edit the titles,
description, and keywords to remove as many as I can,
and stamping on my idiotic forehead a sign that reads
KISS (keep it simple stupid).
cycling, exercise,cyling helmet,exercise family,
coat, teen coat,
stress, stress, abuse
most common keywords:
islam ,apple dip, mosque ,tunisia, consturction work,
construction, apple , danger, hedgehog,
python, mecca, baby pig, hedgehog, baby hedgehog,
anti, anti, archeaology biblical, danger,abuse, divorce,man shirtless, arabic market,burnt, dumpster,renovation, jobs,stress, saving,hair loss,
And of course, a lot of n/a which are mostly from subscription.
