Newest version of Microstock Analytics now comes with Keyword Statistics and Keywording Optimization.
Program collects keywords used by buyers to buy your images from Dreamstime (Buyer searched after column) and from Shutterstock (Image Gallery Stats in Darkroom).

Statistics for single file, fileset or selection is displayed in Keyword Sales tab:

This information can be very useful for optimizing keywording for existing or new files.
New tool allows you to insert keywords and optimize order of keywords, keywords count and add missing keywords. All based on what buyers searched after:

Sort by Revenue will put keywords that were already used by buyers in the beginning. This is very usefull for Fotolia where first 7 keywrods are most important.
Limit Number of keywords. Best to use this function after sorting to make sure important keywords will remain in the list. This is very useful for Dreamstime. According to my test I was able to improve placement of my files on iStockphoto by 10% by limiting number of keywords.
Add missing keywords. This will make sure you not missing any important keywords.

Keywording Optimization works best if you select few similar files first. This can be easily done using search function.

I would like to hear your opinion on how useful you find this feature. Also any optimization strategies you're using that can be implemented in future versions to help you improve/automate this process.

I would like to announce release of Microstock Analytics 1.3.

New version comes with new pricing. Now it looks following:
  • Basic 500 files (500 files analytics) - free.
  • Pro 1000 (1000 files analytics) - $9.99/3 months or $29.99/year.
  • Pro 2000 (2000 files analytics) - $19.99/3 months or $59.99/year.
  • Unlimited analytics - $39.99/3 months or $119.99/year.
  • Unlimited Owned License - $299.99 One Time Fee.

All existing paid accounts were upgraded and extended depending on remaining balance.
Pro 1500 accounts were upgraded to Pro 2000.
Pro 3000 accounts were upgraded to Unlimited.

New version is optimized a lot for big portfolios - increased speed of rendering thumbnails, database loading and stats fetching. Graph updates are up to 40x faster.
Image matchmaking algorithm become much more precise. It can detect same files on different sites much better. And there is a possibility to manually join and split files.

New features:

First of all it is search function. Is allows you to search for files in big portfolio using keywords, titles and descriptions. Also there is filter by upload month which helps to narrow search results even further. It makes file set (collection) creation pain free even for huge portfolios.

The second is export to CSV format. It is possible to export stats per file of per day. Totals earnings and downloads for all agencies as well as per agency data. It is possible to filter by fileset and or export stats for selected files.

The third is keyword analysis. This allows you to see complete list of keywords. Soft keywords by revenue, by RPI or file count. Display monthly/weekly/daily earnings per keyword as well as all other stats.

The last one is filesets/collections sorting. Sort by file count, ROI, RPI, Total Revenue or arrange in Custom Order.
