It might give you penalties if you start ranking for copy and for space individually (if your image isn't about copy or space)... anyone tested this?

Forget it.  Customers do not appear to search using copyspace words.

For my first few years at microstock (exclusive at iStock) I always included copyspace, copy, space, copy-space etc as I believed these words were important.

Then in October 2012 or thereabouts iStock changed their search algorithm,  Suddenly all my photos with copyspace words disappeared from searches that included those words.  I wrote to istock about this and they replied to say that the new search placed priority on the top most popular words for each file, and that copy, space etc never came into the top seven (or rarely).  I asked them again and they replied again to say that according to their records there is absolutely no evidence that customers search using the copyspace words.

When I became non-exclusive after a while I could see at Shutterstock, 123RF etc the most popular words used for searches.  At SS using the 'most popular' listing not one of my thousands of files show copy, space or any derivative in the top three keywords.  My keyword cloud at 123RF has never included those words (I believe they show the top fifty or so.

Nowadays I don't include those words in any of my files.

I love research, especially when I don't have to do that myself. Thanks!

Interesting. But I recently read an article in 500px where they firmly encouraged to include that keyword...

You asked, because you don't know. We answered and now you want to argue? Use it if you want don't if you don't.

Lmao chill. I said it was interesting and thank you all for the posts. I said the thing they published in 500px to show that  maybe they are wrong and nobody uses that keyword anymore
