I got an idea that could be helpful for 3 parts:
Newbies to sell faster
DT our agency to have more revenue so they could make the great work greater
We contributors to gain a symbolic value and who knows maybe to get inspired by something to help uploading or selling!
This is not mysterious, it's all here in front of all of us!
Usually new members (Newbies) even the professional ones are new to key wording & specially with the microstock expressions that are used in the search options by buyers!
Words that are used in the categories & the status of the image like "Vector isolated background portrait panoramic shape abstracts... etc." not to mention the family of the nature of the image like traveling tourism landscape nature people adult senior junior wildlife mammal... etc.
This might be interesting for native English speakers or who speaks a very good English to help within few minutes & get some 2 cents reward for each complete helpful with out spam keywords suggestion!
These images of the new members could be found easily with out big search by going to:
The Latest section of the homepage. There is always a list of the Latest
Photographers who joined DT few days ago. In general they have small portfolios that won't take much time checking & discovering what keywords are missing! (I confess that some they have them very good, others still need to learn)
The new members
on the message boards: Click on the name & off to the new portfolio...
Keywords suggestion for images that DT asked for in a special section
. They are from the editors choice, great as images but missing good key wording.
Just to finish & make this subject complete you can check the keywords of any image and if you find that it misses at least 10 good keywords you can suggest them by clicking the link suggest over the keywords.
Suggestions before you start:
Be sure that your English is at least very good;
If you don't have at least 10 keywords don't waste your time;
If you have many keywords don't feel enough with ten, mostly it won't be taken if you save the words for you;
Look at the image carefully & if it has a zoom option, use it;
If you see a foreign name that must be added don't bother with the spelling check;
Look at the keywords that are used already & don't duplicate.
Good Luck ;)
