Keywords ??

Hello All

Good news is that I got my first picture approved. However, if I type the exact picture title into the search box, the image does not come up at all. I didn't expect it to be at the top. But 199 similar images came up but it was not included in the mix.

I thought I keyworded it well but maybe not. Confused....

I would appreciate anyone's help to understand. Am I missing something ?

It takes some time for the image and keywords to be indexed by the server so wait a few days and try again. Lots of images and the database is not immediately refreshed after every acceptance.

Hello and welcome here!

When you'll see your photo in your portfolio (LINK), it means it is indexed and buyers can find it.

Best, Rob.

It takes time. I updated my keywords a while ago and only some of them are showing up on searches now (when I search on the newly added keywords).
