I was just wondering (I'm very new to micro stock), do you find your images at the micro stock sites when searching for the title?

I just tried it and even though my images were approved last week (I believe Thursday) I can't find it when I search for the exact title. I can't even find it when I broaden the search and then browse through 50 and more images. That just happened on fotolia and shutterstock. Bigstock however finds the images immediately and lists them on top.

And since I have already sold images right after they were approved on fotolia and on shutterstock I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

Have you put all the words that are in the title into the keywords as well?  If not then it will be difficult to find your images.

Yes, i can find them, either on page one, or, if it's a popular subject, somewhere in the middle.

That's mostly because they are listed in some gallery of 'newly approved images', rather than their searchability.

I found plenty( around 100) of my photos on google search.
Just type the name of my best selling photos and they show up.
Only on google.
