I read that some microstock sites weight the first few keywords more importantly in buyer searches. Is this true for Shutterstock?

I never paid attention to this and use Aperture 3 for my metadata. I was not paying attention until I read this but Aperture rank orders the keywords by alphabetization. Even though I placed the most relevant key words first, this program shoved many of them to the end of this list.

If Shutterstock does this weighting is it possible to reorder some of my existing photos?

Shutterstock, Dreamstime and Bigstock arrange the keywords alphabetically.

Fotolia does it with first 7 keywords being most important and if you forget some keywords...forget about going in and adding them after they've been approved. You can't do it.
