And she's both 13-15 and 25-30 years old.

And why did they skip 16-24?   :-\

Hi guys,

We have removed Lione's keyword-spammed images from the site until he fixes them.

Thanks Steve for the update.
at least  good to hear some action has been taking against him,I don't want to sound mean but it still seems he got away with it quite fine.

I think Alamy has found a good way to fight keyword spamming with their ranking system.

A contributor get an overall ranking value computed from a formula such as

nb of thumbnails views in search / (nb of click/zoom + nb of sales)

Search result is then ordered by taking this ranking into account (the lower, the better).

If a contributor use keywords spamming, the number of thumbnails view will increase dramatically first but not the number of click/sales as the buyers will just skip the irrelevant pictures. His/her pictures will thus drop quickly at the end of the search.

I guess it is not easy to implement such thing (but it should not be too difficult either), but it is a good idea IMHO.

Of cours, you then have to deal with robots which try to increase the ranking of a given contributor  ;D

As much as I hated the thought of other people being able to review my keywords (the program put in place at istock), I must say that I think it works well. I thought that I would be pissed when I saw that my keywords had been edited, but I must say that in every instance a photo has been reviewed for keywords, there have been tons added that I never thought of. And I like the idea that once they go through the review, they are locked so that no one else can go back and change (both other people and the contributor).
