I see some contributors on shutterstock putting two irrelevant keywords as one such as:

"adult affectionate", "people person", "casual catering" "ache african" and so on...

Is this some new bug using way to enter 100 instead of 50 keywords?

that contributor also have images with about 100 keywords on shutterstock (probably after they break apart)

Yup its spamming and a way of getting more than the maximum 50 keywords.

But personally I no longer give a sh*t what SS allow or do or don't do as a so called agency they lost it years ago.

They don't care and I refuse to care too

Rant over  ;D

But it's not a rant if it's true.

Yes been that way a long time, don't assume that tricks and spam or people with 1,000 of the same image are actually beating the honest ones, or making more by trying to cheat. They could be hurting their own rank and sales.

IMHO if something needs more than 50 words, most of the words are irrelevant and not necessary, there's no proven benefit to having more bad and unrelated keywords will mean more sales.  ;)

I found them when I search for one keyword term and saw those double keyword spamming images on top of most relevant searches.

100 keywords and with double triple words included? Stil learning but i usually struggle to get 10 decent relevant keywords on a clip Although i also try to manipulate as long as i am using girl little-girl baby-girl small-girl etc for a small age girl's tagged description.

:S

not trying to defend intentional spamming, but some of this mess may be Shutterstock's own work through automatic translation if the artist tagged in a different language
