Search Keywords

posted on 3rd of november, 2008

After looking through the keywords used to download my images I noticed something a little strange...

To date I have 57 downloads. Only 25 of them were found directly from search keywords. In other words, only 44% of my downloads have been found directly via keyword searches.

Some of my images have been downloaded strictly via keywords but most of them have been strictly without keywords, with few exceptions.

What are your stats regarding this? Do you find that you get more downloads from keywords or from potential buyers browsing your portfolio?

Do buyers look for certain types of images with keywords only and other types of images by browsing related photos or portfolios?

Thanks for your stats. Interesting how the number of online files might effect how many are found via search terms...
