OK, I have just simple question - is THIS https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/awww-cute-cuddly-baby-kitten-spots-stripes-awww-163456824.jpg the quality what is normally approved?

Anyway, why I see grass photos when I am looking for dog?

Is DS to be closed? Lol.

Honestly, that is a good commercial picture. In this day and age of Social Media that image with the right advertiser will relate to a lot of people because it has a homey feeling, it's cute with the cat in a relaxed position which conveys a message, has copy space. The crop is strange though and in micro that image is lost.

No idea.
In a clean browser, all of the first page in a search for dog ('relevant') feature a dog, as a major or minor feature, except on which is a chbby chap running along a desert road chasing a carrot.
Sorting by 'Latest Uploads' I get a lot of 'dog roses' mixed in, plus one landscape which has 'dog' in the keywords, but I don't see a dog.
Sorting by 'best selling', I see a lot of images I saw when sorting 'relevant', minus the bloke chasing the carrot, but there is a photo of an empty kennel keyworded 'dog house', 'doghouse', 'dog' and 'house'.

So on the first page of each search, I don't see photos of grass (without a dog or dogs), but if you do, maybe you have DT cookies which are giving you a different sort from me, maybe they factor searcher location into results or ???, but presumably 'dog' comes into the keywords somewhere.

That's a rather nice watercolor painting.

This is a long standing keyword/search issue that Dreamstime has no interest whatsoever in addressing.
Any word put in the description shows up as a keyword.  Two word phrases are broken into individual words.
They don't see the problem.
Maybe if more BUYERS complained, they might do something.  However, potential buyers tend to just wander off when they get bad search results, rather than take the time to complain.

Actually, that happens on most sites, I know for a fact SS, Alamy, adobe and iS, but on the latter if it's cleanly keyworded, these words usually turn up at the end of a search, or in a search with no hits.
To check for it, check for Blue Whale on any site. Trouble is that there are always some contributors who will keyword blue and whale separately, which creates its own problems, but on most sites you'll see lots of pics of blue sea (or sky) and any whale or whale shark because of the splitting issue.

To answer....Yes at least in the last 5 Years. and I really don't see a issue compared to some with this one.
