Understanding how to correctly keyword the images you have uploaded to your online photo stock agency is critical to making sales. In this class we will look at keywording stock photography, and give tips and hints that will help you get those pictures under the eyes of photo buyers.
Why Should I Bother Keywording My Images?
You are a busy photographer – you don’t have time for this. Why should you bother keywording all those images? The answer is simple. If there are two similar photographs, the one with more relevant keywords is more likely—much more likely—to be found by a photo buyer than the one with a few, bad-chosen keywords.
Good keywording helps sell your images.
Without too much difficulty, the number of keywords that you can associate with a single image at the major stock sites numbers in the hundreds. Let’s suppose you have a picture that currently has 50 keywords associated with it, and that we increase the number of keywords to 200.
How you would benefit:
- Average keywords per image now = 50
- Achievable keywords per image = 200
- Improvement in search terms matched = eyeballs on photos = 300%
