Is it different to keywording for other sites? I have over 400 images but am getting little to no interest.

I also decided to pay for the description/keywording through Dreamstime and, quite frankly, my dog could have done better. Nothing inventive was written by the "keywording experts" and as basic as you could get.

Embed the keywords as metadata in your images and save yourself the extra work of adding keywords for Dreamstime or any other agency.

That horse is dead - no matter how you handle your keywording.

Last month was more than lousy. And today they sent me an e-mail because of a "customer refund"...

Can't speak specifically about Dreamstime (poor sales there), but keywording overall I'm using Phototag.Ai for keywording both images and now they do great work with videos.

I've published a review of this great and affordable piece of software with a shameless affiliate link :)

DT keywording is a little weird because they break multiple word keywords into single words, but I would say keyword for adobe with embedded keywords with the most important first and then send it to DT and anywhere else. Pics on DT seem to take ages to get any traction if they ever do. My sales are slow but fairly steady - and sadly almost all .35 subs there.

I still seem to do fairly well on DT compared to most - this January was my worst month there in at least a year and I was under 1/10 of Adobe with a larger DT port (less than 2x Adobe)  Usually I make quite a bit more than 1/10 of Adobe on DT. It certainly is not a great earner, but they haven't had any "exciting" news for a long while and they even boosted pay for a bit because of Covid.

For DT   Title / Description Fields are of largest importance.  Whenever customer search phrase is reported for me it's almost always something I had there.  This approach promotes accurate description of the asset, so it might be worth spending bit extra time.   Not all agencies index text fields though.   To my knowledge Alamy does, but IS, SS and AS don't.

I usually copy/paste my keywords from Shutterstock to Dreamstime.
