Photography is already in the artwork type (you have to select that during upload) and art is in the page name Fine Art America. I am not sure how Google indexes things, but I imagine it already reads this information.
i always add it once for google, i can't rely on the site adding it, even though it does. i just wouldn't add things like -- cow photographs, chicken photographs etc
and though its believed that google ignores keywords, i know they look at keywords. they rely on anything they can use, they just don't weight it as importantly as descriptions and such. because google wants to index things, and it has to use whatever is on the page. the system uses keywords, then relies on you using them in a sentence to help define what they mean.
Google ignores them, as does Yahoo. Bing looks at them, but not as a ranking signal. Bing reads the META Keywords tag as a spam signal. If your site uses the tag, but the keywords contained within it do not appear in your document, your site will be penalized.
It is already tagged photography. Leave out things that are already tagged by FAA. It is not going to help and could even hurt by being redundant. Tags are mostly for FAA, so follow their guidelines. Anything added that is already a tag in another field is redundant and probably ignore by all the search engines. Other than that it may help to have them in the tags. SO no to name and words like "photography" or even "art print." Yes to adding the location and/or subject in the title, description, and tags if it is relevant. Basically the title and description is what Google is going to use to index you image, but don't worry it knows "art print" and "photography" or "painting" as well from what FAA puts in the other boxes and other places on the page.
thanks for answering the question all the people of FAA. So Smart! I guess "moving forward" i will follow the recommendations. Of course, the past is the past and your cant change it...especially when its over 1000 images. And, I should of asked the question earlier.
I still make sales in spite of this error though. Which is good, so I guess its not the worst thing in the world
Joy,,thats a great idea. I like that at the end of the description.
