It's time for me to lean on the knowledge of the DT contributors. I have an image I truly believe in, but it only has 75 views in five months. It's got to be the keywording. Any tips on re-keywording this one? It has sold twice, but it should be doing better with more views. Many thanks in advance!
I think it is due that a byer can see it clearly on the preview. Despite only a few views you have 2 sales. Images with many many views can have no sales ( like I do have). I would go with Wisconsinart and put money on the title. Like making money or catching money.
Thanks for the advice everyone! I'm actually going to do pretty much everything you are suggesting... Already added "catching money" to the title and I am going to edit down the number of keywords to the most important ones. DT contributors rock!!
It seems to me that reducing the number of keywords would reduce the number of keywords by which a searcher could find the image. That can't be good. I would think increasing the number of keywords would improve your chances. Somebody tell me why I'm wrong.
In the interview she states that having around 25 to 30 keywords gives you better page ranking. She also states that having more keywords than 30 will benefit the photo by being found by more types of searches. So you have to figure out what would be the best strategy for your photo. Do you want better page ranking or do you want to be found by many different types of searches.
So for my image I'm going to try reducing the keywords since I had about 60 and the image wasn't getting many views. It must have been getting a bad page ranking, probably buried many pages deep on a search, so it wasn't being seen very much.
I think that figuring out the best strategy for each image can ultimately lead to much better sales. Sometimes it takes some effort, but it's worth the investment of time.
I hope that answers your question, Toynuts. And I hope the video interview sheds some light on keywording here on DT. I'm still actually trying to figure it all out myself!
Hi there Mike, in my opinion, you have to many keywords relating to stocks when what your man is trying capture is cash. Just a few words I came up with straightaway, Catch, Catching, Capture, Cash, Flight, Winged, Escape, Escaping. We all have our own individual ideas, just a thought from me.

Hi Mike, just a thought, I think your title is too long. I would call it "Money Management concept . One other thing to consider, the amout of views has very little to do with sales. Most of the views come from google searches and such. But the fact that it is getting that many views is a good sign that people are attracted to the image even if they are not looking to buy such an image. It is a very good concept image. Good work.
