Is there a keywording tool that doesnt have a bias?

Is it true that the MSG tool draws data from SS only?

If we use the MSG tool are the images, and therefore the keywords skewered towards SS rather than a GLOBAL vision of keywords specific to ALL stock agencies?

Keywords are really 90% of what we do - images do not sell themselves. Until Google says so that is.
But what tool can we use to penetrate the market, or should we do (as I believe) buck convention and write our own keywords (1 to 50 - depending on the agencies requirements and without spamming)
I use the MSG tool but feel it only aligns itself with SS search algorithms which cannot be good for a generic keyword tool without bias.

For me I like the feel and chaos of user-generated keywords without any tools and bias, as in human input without TOOLING assistance - any thoughts?

I regard any key wording tool as a start and then add/subtract as appropriate. 90% is a huge overestimate important yes but I think people tend to over analyse if a buyer wants a red tomato thats what they will search for not some obscure/clever way of saying it

Our Axon Guru keyword generation tool was trained from multiple image sources. Therefore, it would have much less "bias" towards a single microstock provider. It does not need user to pick similar images. Once the user connects his/her cloud hosting providers, Axon Guru would automatically process the images and generate the keywords.

Even the best AI technology still makes mistakes and can't match human creativity and insight. However, it does produce 80-90% of correct keywords such as red, fruit, tomato. It might miss "beefsteak" or "organic". From our testing, it is much easier and more efficient for user to add/subtract keywords than starting from scratch each time.

Actually as my biggest seller I would want to be "biased" towards SS and I'm not about to start having different words for different sites.
