Keyword caution


posted on 12th of february, 2012

I sold an image today

and decided to check other images in a similar vein, namely those related to the crisis in the Eurozone and in Greece where there is voting tonight on the bail out terms and conditions.
With keywords euro mouse trap 73 images appeared
With keywords euro mousetrap 103 images appeared and perversely in my view using keywords euro trap mouse mousetrap only 59 images appeared.
My view is that it is sensible to check the major keywords; clearly mousetrap as one word has a different response to mouse and trap

This discrepancy has the potential to lose significant sales.

If I search on a translation site on this word I get: mouse-trap. But maybe this is UK English. There is a great difference sometimes between English and American words. Confusing.

I think that the more important thing is for your image to be included in the 103 searched photo. If your photo has mousetrap keyword only will it be more searchable than a photo with mouse trap mousetrap keywords? Or is it the other way around? or will it yield the same result?
