LOL I haven't seen the agency site for a while, it now has a gold badge for the "YA Award for Excellence". Says it all really.

Wow, I presume that's the Yuri Arcurs awards?  If so, it looks a bit tacky awarding his own site.  Might be a joke but on a professional site, it looks wrong.  And "The World's Top Selling Collection of Images" is a bit questionable.  I can't see how he outsells Shutterstock's collection of images.  Can he say that because it's part of Getty?

I imagine it's as real as the YA gold award. You can justify it however you like. Ss is a site not a collection, a collection has to be by one artist, for example.

Does it? Who says?

Sorry I should have been clearer. I am saying he could justify his statement in any way he likes, that was just an example.

Later caveat noted, but by the 'collection by one artist' criterion, PI wouldn't count, as it's more like the medieval 'school of YA' concept.

Yes, no doubt it takes a huge ego.  Perhaps compensating for shortcomings in other areas?

;)  for anyone who don't know that was a joke.

That's really not good at all. I've been using his keywording site for ages and it was very very convenient.

There are lots of alternatives. One example, http://microstockgroup.com/tools/keyword.php

Thanks! :) I know this one. But Yuri website had this huge advantage that he showed how popular are given keywords and also how much searched. This was very useful.

Yea I liked Yuri's better, but the MSG one is close enough that I'll manage.

I just wish it would put the key words in alphabetical order.
