Is there a SEO benefit to having an image inside a collection? I'm aware of keyword tags and how they work, but was wondering if having an image inside a collection will also affect search results outside of FAA. For example, if someone had an image of a bird, but with absolutely no keywords and no mention of the word "birds" in the title or description, but did have it within a collection called "Birds," would non-FAA search engines like Google see it?
I tested this on FAA, which did find it as a bird topic. But I'm curious about non-FAA search. Anyone have any ideas on this?
I don't believe it affects the image directly, but a good collection description could possibly result in the collection being found in outside search which could lead to the images inside of that collection being found.
its more for the buyer than google. i don't know if the google knows its in a collection or not. but if you have a pile of images some people don't want to have to wade through all of that. you would do better if you added more than 10 keywords.
Stars, you have some very cool art that would fit nicely in an FAA collection. You have also done a great job of attracting 449,000 visitors in just a short time of bering here. I am not asking, but I would assume and hope that has lead to significant sales compared to the average member that has been here the time. That may get the attention of the decision makers that pick who gets into the FAA collections.
However, I would not dwell on it and I would just keep doing what you are doing that has lead to the number of visitors you have attracted.

@Floyd. It turns out that most of the visits have likely been from bots or casual non-shopping drive-by viewers, since most of the images are also posted to Pinterest. There is, however, a curated collection when searching "pop art" or "movie stars," which helps. In any case, sales overall are nothing to write home about. And that article from Sean is excellent information, which I read a while back. I reread it and only now discovered that going into incognito mode also means that cookies aren't read by sites. I always thought that incognito mostly meant that sites weren't stored in your history. I appreciate your opinion about the art, since most comments after a sale are limited to "congratulations."
"It turns out that most of the visits have likely been from bots"
Yup, that is the same thing for all of us. But I see people that have been here for 5-8 years and still have under 20,000 views. So you are doing something right as far as attracting bots which usually equates to people, granted at a much smaller percentage.
