No one is going to buy a photo of a Watermelon when they were looking for an Apple.
This is not true look up at Dreamstime you can see for which keyword search of the buyer the image got actually downloaded. You will see many strange downloads for searched keywords even for keywords that are not in your picture at all. In the end it's all about to make your picture visible to the buyer!

People here forgot that not only contributors are non-English speakers buyers are often too if the site is translated to their language then the translation is not accurate at all! If it's not translated to their language then their search is more visual. Therefore if you have an image of a gibbon and you don't use the keyword monkey you will certainly loose sales!

Actually looking at some gorilla image (without keyword monkey) on Shutterstock and changing in to my native language - the English "ape" is translated as "monkey".

And there are no search results when looking for "ape" in my native language.

Overall the translation is bad, resulting in some very strange and completly absurd keywords.

So please be accurate in this chaos. Your competitors thank you for that in advance  ;D

Another thing which I didn't see being mentioned here is that on Adobestock for example the maximum keywords you can insert is 50, however it's advisable to use maximum only 49, other way the keywords won't get weighted separately (the first few being more important) but every single one of them gets the fraction of the "total sum" equally.
Only 49 keywords. ??? How do you know that? Can I read these instructions somewhere?

Adobe people mentioned is in their webcast last year. I don't think it is written down anywhere.
