2 different sheets of parchment was "italian breakfast" - perhaps they are making the point of cereal tasting like cardboard ??

and liquid metal got an image of a starfield titled 'bright star'

Hi folks! I didn't read whole thread as low on time at current moment so apologize if someone told same thing before me :P

I believe that know the answer why most of these keywords are actually appear as those which lead for sales. Just take a look on a way how DT store info about you. It place cookie to your browser with name "dtlastsearch" which actually store last typed phrase in the searchbar, and no matter what you do on the site this key phrase left there as long as you didn't type new one(not very wise solution IMHO, but sometimes it could be helpful I guess).

So when someone is checking out value from this cookie is used as keyword which lead for sale... no matter if you found this image for example on the first page of the site or in similar  images or have it bookmarked.

I guess that unless they change behavior of search function on the forum there would be not much of use from keywords unless you see that this keyword appear somewhere in your image.

I also have one image in which the same unrelated keywords appeared in three consecutive dlds.  I believe the two last ones were those in which search keywords are not available, and the system shows the last known keywords.

Actually it's very easy to check if keyword in cookie appear in the profile for downloaded image and if not doesn't display keyword in statistic, not sure why DT programmers wouldn't take care of this...
And if keyword wasn't found they could display for example in which category image was found.

This is not to report another strange keyword, but that DT search tool indeed looks into the description field.  This image:



was purchased by someone searching for "roland".  In the description field, I say this is the type of court used in Roland Garros, but I don't have Roland as a keyword (unlike other generic images, such as this or this - the latter is so spammed with tennis words that do not relate to the image!).

Adelaide

Thanks for info, Adelaide! I was also wonder if they will look into description field or just use keywords and see if they present in description field and add more value to them(I think something like this was written in their guidelines).

Hi.
I sold a picture of a wedding bouquet newbielink:http://www.dreamstime.com/wedding-image1605396 [nonactive]
and it was searched by "ghana".

I didn't know how could I connected this and got a bit confused but as I can see - being very new here - I'm not the only one.

Greetings
