Has anyone else run into keyword spamming with their shop on Skreened?  I have a portfolio of Gay Pride designs with them, and I noticed that they weren't coming up much in their search results.  I discovered another artist who uses keyword spamming and his designs come up on the first 38 pages under a "gay pride" search.  You don't even see any other designs or products until page 39.  To make matters worse, all those first 38 pages are all the SAME design (Florida) with a different city overlayed.  So you have 38 pages of just Florida Pride shirts.  Ugh.  I sent them an email and got a "we'll look into it" response.  That was two weeks ago and no change.  Figure I'll give it another week and delete my portfolio.  Very disappointing.

I've never tried selling my photos or designs through shirt agencies; but your post here may inspire me to do so (just not at Skreened, after what you wrote).

Keyword spamming is a problem in general; I'm afraid that agencies (in general) don't take matters seriously, unless more than 1 member is complaining about the same artist/image.
