Hi guys

I was wondering wether it is worth the effort to revise my keywords in my files on shutterstock?
Do you have any experience with optimizing keywords on already uploadet old files?

Thanks

It's quite a bit of hassle to do so I'd say it's only worth it on best-selling images when you know you have missed out an important word or two (which is easy to do, especially when you are new to it).

 I've got a bit more than 3000 photos in my portfolio. I recently had a look at the bottom part ie. the photos that had only one download - which is where the thought of revising keywords occurred, since the photos weren't bad at all.

But it might not be worth the effort..

Do 10 a day and you will be done in a year. It can't hurt

Or do 30, wait a month or so, and see if that improves sales on those images. If so, then you know you should work on the others.

I am doing it only when I think the actual image has big potential, and I missed some important keywords. Again, when I think I can't correct it on 123RF and Fotolia I get discouraged.
My best seller on FT is missing the most important keyword. It's a picture of isolated ants over white, and I don't have the word "ants". I got only "ant", lol.
