well that tells you stuff too.  I had a sky that was found using the word concrete.

But since I imagine that it just reveals the last search term used before an image purchase they obviously found the image when viewing my image of a concrete road (which they purchased right beforehand) using the word concrete.

It is good to know, that buyers check out portfolios too, not just use the search... .

Nothing about this in the DT forum section so I thought i would mention it.

Since the beginning of the year you can now see what keyword was used when one of your images was downloaded (they are listed in the last download column) . Nothing spectacular but interesting to have a glimpse inside the mind of the buyer. I was surprised by the number of single word searches and more so by some very strange results.

keyword - solar panel   image downloaded - map of Ontario

keyword - software      image downloaded  - seattle skyline with yacht

It's interesting... almost like that game "7 degrees of Kevin Bacon".   Perhaps all of your photos are 7 or fewer keywords away.

keywords:  youth hispanic lonely
photo:  an inukshuk on the edge of a lake (Inuit for a stack of rocks shaped like a man).

Keywords:  ballot box
Photo:  kid in classroom raising hand

DT has added a new feature that will show you the keywords used for an image that was purchased.

What do you guys think about this?

What's wrong with me? The keywords that are shown as selling my images are all relevant ones.   ;)

Seriously ... it's a great feature. Congratulations to DT

Keyword search: A delicious strawberry gateau and a cup of coffee;

Image bought; A delicious strawberry gateau and a cup of coffee

He he he.

With only one picture in the search result I was sure to get the sale!

LEAF - I had several dls today from the keywords Saskatchewan and Manitoba.  Did you did too?   Someone working on a prairie project I guess! 

Sure nice that they weren't subs... subs have been closing the gap this month, that's for sure.

5 in all.  Older ones.  I've stopped adding Sask to the tags... I have so many prairie farmer type of pixs though, maybe I should review that...

yeah, it was nice to see that people actually search for sask.  I had thought it was somewhat of a worthless keyword too.

I had a sale on this image with the search "universal studio"  :)

they could have gotten to your image through a portoflio link or 'similar images' link after they searched for 'universal studio)

Leaf,

I know not all searches link directly to the image purchased, but I found this one quite a huge discrepancy.

search term:  plaster block
image bought: my toddler son playing with tools - honestly, he looks nothing like a plaster block  :)

What's up with the n/a's anyway?

LOL, have to add another one:



Search Words:  Young Stylish Blond Woman
Photo Name:  Naughty Little Boy

My overall favourite is: keyword "black woman" and he bought an image of a white male. Maybe he looked for Michael Jackson :)

I love this feature -

for the information it provides I am finding incredibly useful.  I have a picture of some old ruins that sells better than any others - sales through 'pile rocks' 'rubble' 'building rubble'  totally different to what I would have thought.

But I also see the difference in how people search, some are specific ie 'water hen' but others like "wildlife" got a picture of meerkat.

But I love the laugh it provides :):)

coast shot - title sea and rocks - search 'antique brass compass thumb' ??
camouflage cloth - "russian flag"
lollipop - "jelly bean" - neither word in keywords
cells = "sh we" ??????
dry lake = "b" ????
my eldest daughter swinging on rope on the river - title girl swinging - search "thick forest" - oh the rest of my family gave her heaps!!!

Somehow this shot titled 'Retro Glam' was downloaded following the keyword search for 'australian shepherd' (sic)!
Is she really THAT much of a dog? ???

My fav is my lesbian marriage, found by the keyword man;D
Favors my guess that customers rely heavily on visual search too.

keywords: function phone

keywords: success student on a laptop

Yes, I guess the student was so successful he made enough money to start investing in the stock market. ;D

Well, I feel totally ripped off - I've got lots of great aussie shots!


My favorite from a recent download is this one "Construction Houses"

"Boy toddler white background" is the search that resulted in these two sales:




However, my personal favorite was searched by "manure" and shown below:


I get a kick out of seeing the search words.  I find it useful to see people are actually clicking over to my portfolio to continue looking.
