Keywords, the never ending story

posted on 18th of may, 2011

Some minutes ago I did a research on "vietnam". I only used this single keyword.

And now I would like to share some of my findings:

© Jomphong (Help) nothing about Vietnam

go to Thailand if you would like to visit this historical building

this one is in Thailand, too

dog on beach.... maybe Vietnamese beach...


I am sitting and thinking about the above shown and many more images... what have they to do with Vietnam?? I don`t have any idea >:)

Pleeeaaaase folks, fill in the right keywords!!!!

It is absolutely important for customers not to get such irrelevant search results...

Hi Cristalloid, don't get it bad. This is the right spelling "Viet Nam" as long as I remember ... I think it must translate as the "viet country" in Vietnamese. That's why you do not have relevant result ;)

I had a rant about this a couple of weeks ago, when I was searching for images for a client...

I found it incredibly frustrating and it really does take away from the buying experience, on the plus side is is one of only two frustrations I have had here on DT in a largely happy four months :)

Sell the rights

posted on 30th of may, 2011

I am just thinking of enabling the SR-EL feature for some of my images.

Before I do so I would like to discuss some questions with you.

First: Is it a good idea for a part-timer (name it: hobbyist) like me to enable the SR-feature in general?

Second: What is the right price for "sell the rights"? The recommended amount or a higher/lower one?

Third: Does it make sense to have the same price for SR-EL1, SR-EL3 and SR-EL?

My answers to this questions are:

First: I think, one SR-sale (regardless if SR-EL, SR-EL1, SR-EL3) will earn me more money than any given image will bring via the other licenses for a long time. On the other hand, after a SR-EL sale the given image won't bring any earnings forever.

Second: I don't have any clue on formation on prices or how much any given image is...

Prices DO differ between SR types.
1 year: 1/4 SR-EL price
3 years: 3/5 SR-EL price

If you should enable these options, that's a personal decision.
Good luck.
