How does the the new tweaks to the Fotolia search engine work for you?  I can't find many of my images anymore.  Back of the bus for me.

Tweaks? They need major re-versioning of V2. Every since V2 last year searches were damaged beyond repair, in my opinion. I believe that all keywords before V2 were affected. I re-tested searches today on my best sellers, using the top two keywords that are dead-on accurate. My images showed up WAY BACK, page 14 or 15, sorted by Downloads. Yet when using the download sort, but using only one keyword, they came up on page 1.

The short of it is, no, I can't see any improvement, at least with my images. The only explanation I can come up with is that something catastrophic happened to the site shortly after V2 -- or because of V2 -- and they can't fix it. A few months ago someone said that in order to "fix" things with your images you need to re-enter all your keywords and keep the total to under 10 of them or something like that. Fat chance of me doing that.

I don't remember the site addressing this issue. FT is a minor player for me anyway so I put more energy into the other sites.
