Writing helpful discriptions

I was curious what are the most helpful descriptions to be used for photographs that help increases visitors or sales. How does it vary from the title and keywords? What information and how much to use?

Hi John! Very interresting subject!
I have been thinking a lot on this. You see, I am also an imagebyer. And what I realize is that the buyer are always looking for a solution. And the solution are not always the obvious.

An example.

In that context would this image be useful in a lot of ways :-)
Great portfolio by the way.

I was thinking about the best answer - reckon the best description ist - with which keywords could I find my picture among the thousands of "Sunset over beach" - is Indonesia in this case important - I reckon in this case only if the objekt on the right - not sure what it is - is something typical for that landscape... keywording and titles can be a bit tricky - many of mine were changed after a few months or even years - and suddenly they started selling
