I do my keywording in Lightroom.
When I am working with an image of something I have never done before, I find the keywording tool in SS extremely useful

Xpiks for both keywording and uploading. If I was to use my brain alone, as non native English speaker, I'd miss out lots of words I didn't know and I'd never learn them.

For sure, it's far more difficult for non-native speakers.

As a non-native English speaker, I'd risk to say that a keyword that you'll never learn because you never see it anywhere is a not a very good keyword. Brain it is.

I partly agree. Yes majority of photos sell by the most basic keywords, after all, buyers are from all over the world and they as well might not know the English that well.

But there are specific words for specific shots that a buyer might be looking for and I just didn't come across them in an everyday life and there are some that just don't click to me at that moment.
One example would be one of my better selling receptionist shots where I just didn't ever hear about the term "concierge"(I know, it's not English but serves the point), yet that is the 80% of keyword searches for that file.
 
After all it's faster to click-out the unwanted ones than type in all from scratch even with autofill.

No problem, if it helps, it helps. The word "concierge" is pretty common in the US, I must say, not necessarily used only in the hospitality business. Understandably, not everyone is exposed to pop vocabulary, if living overseas, for example.

And what's the average number of keyrods you end up with? 5? 15? 25?

I'd say 30, but I try to max it where possible.

Ok.
I've heard before that too many keywords are not good for the search engines at the sites...

Heard that one too, looking out for it, but I've got a really small sample to pull any meaningful observation.
We strayed away from topic pretty much, was just pointing out how Xpiks makes life easier and it's free.
