Hey all,

I have been on SS for quite a long time now and have a port of around 900 images with them.  Some of them (and not the strongest ones at that) are selling well whilst some of my stronger images (from composition and aesthetic view point) have achieved one sale  in 5 years.

I think my key-wording is pretty good but still not getting the hits, also very low views compared to similar images by other photographers.

I know that SS has a key-word service for 60 cents per picture and I am considering using it for a few of my low performers.

Has anyone else used it? Any input?

Thanks in advance for any advice. :D

why not post an image of yours that isn't selling well with the keywords for us to look at and comment? You would surprised on what you get back...

Like other suggested, you should post an image here with the keywords and see what type of suggestions you get.  You could also use a tool like the microstock keyword tool to help brainstorm ideas and see what words you could be missing.

- I moved the thread to the Dreamstime area and changed the title of the thread.

I never even knew that tool existed. Thank you so much for showing that to me as it looks fairly snazzy.
