Key Words Vs. Description

Okay, Ladies and Gentlemen. I am curious as to whether key words work and where. Description quality? Whether you appreciate the photo, that would be your choice. I have began to remove water marks as recommended. https://67-john-anderson.pixels.com/ I have had reasonable success on Facebook, not sales.. Newbie, looking for thoughts. Best

I'm confused. You have no practical description and no keywords at all.

Hi John,

Keywords/Tags are for FAA internal search

Descriptions assist with search engines like Google

KEYWORDS – Very important – you can use up to 500 characters, use them all if you can. Note: they must relate to the image. Do not use words or phrases that have nothing to do with the image you are uploading.

DESCRIPTION - Just like your biography when you're uploading art into your gallery, use the "Description" field to tell the story behind the art. Google loves a good story and that can help you in searches. Tell what it is, where it is, why you painted it or photographed it.

Guys, when I add a photo it asks for keywords and a description which I enter in each post.... Normally in keywords I put at least the location, my name and a brief thought. Not sure what I am doing wrong.... Appreciate the input... By the way, I understand the value of key words from past business environments so if I am missing something, thanks!

I don't know what you are doing wrong but I don't see any tags/keywords. I would suggest you add them by editing the images.
I would be a waste to upload anything here without a good description and as many keywords as fit the image. A waste because some search engines will float the newer images to see how they do. And the search engine here has a sort by age. If you wait to put up tags and descriptions you just throw out any newness advantage. And assign the image page to that great black hole that nobody will ever see. Then you have to climb out of the hole. Better to let the search engines categorize the image right from the start.

For instance – this image has no keywords/tags

Art Prints

Here are some suggested tags for this image

Motorcycle, bike, engine, Flagler Beach, Florida, sunset, sunrise, ocean, sea, beach, sand, grass, waves, helmet, travel, ride, chrome, seaside, shore, shoreline, morning, day, sunlight, reflection, water, green, yellow, gold, red, John Anderson,



You could also expand on the description - It is good you added the location but is it your bike? are you traveling coast to coast? why did you stop at this location? Who, What, Where, Why? You should add more info to each image.

location for a lizard is pointless.

Keywords have no thoughts, they are just words describing the thing that we are looking at - lizard,cold blooded,what ever kind it is, tropical etc.
The description is what we are looking at, what is that thing. Tell us about that thing we are looking at.

Put commas in there, anything else will make it look like a phrase.

Looking at your keywords, you just listing them with a space. The words,have,to,look,like,this if you want them to count as different words. Or it will just be a phrase. Leave out spaces to make more room for words.

John,

Howdy again! Lets make sure you know that the word "tag" is also a "keyword"! You say you add keywords, but I'm not seeing any "tags". Here's an example:

Art Prints

First, this is a 1963 Buick Electra 225 Classic Convertible, probably WAS a really nice car...still is a neat car for sure! Here's what I would use as "keywords or tags"

"1963 Buick Electra 225 Classic Convertible, 1963 buick electra 225,1963 buick electra 225 convertible, 1963 buick convertible electra 225, 1963 electra 225 convertible,buick convertible,1963 convertible,1963 buick,60's buick,60's classic car,vintage buick,car show buick",.....if you know WHICH car sho this was in, then add that too.

Maybe a couple other ones too.

I would use 1963 Buick Electra 225 Converttible in all 3 places, title, keywords and description.

Hope this helps....

Rich

If you have been entering keywords (tags) then you must not have been putting a comma between each word. If you just have a string of keywords they will not be of any use.
