Thanks for the answer!
I tought the field wasn't important
I had only 2 ($12 an $45) sales

To increase the change of a sale, i gonna fill fields

Did you read a word Joe wrote?
Fill in the fields by all means, but there's very little chance of that increasing your sales, unless you have releases and hadn't bothered to include that information.
I guess it could also be that some editorial buyers might search on a specific number of people, but I've only ever seen WP (with people) and WOP (without people) indicated.

Possibly at some time in the future categories might be utilised, but nothing is done with them at present.

It make sense to indicate supertag keywords and then fill in immediately the other fields
A very little chance, is also a little more chance to get a big sale :)
Now i have small port of 390 images

I sell some on Alamy and I honestly tried to come up with 50 keywords for several of my images. I found it impossible. For most agencies my images have around 15-20, and 20 is sometimes pushing it. Adding another 30 words to each image is just insane.

The discoverability bar
The discoverability bar gives you an indication of how discoverable (visible) your images are within the search results seen by customers. The discoverability bar does not indicate a specific rank, but will increase as you add more information to your selected images. If the discoverability bar is fully green and shows Optimized then there is no more information you can add to improve it.     

Note: The discoverability bar is not in any way reading or scoring the quality of your metadata, it simply increases with the volume of searchable information you enter.


Let me translate, you can add as much or as little as you wish, the bar is only measuring and counting the volume of data.

I think far too many people take the name literaly instead of understanding the concept. I think the name is misleading. No matter, I hope this little post explains, that discoverability rating is not about rank or scoring or the search.

I ignore the bar as if it wasn't there at all.  8)
