    Great article Mark – and even very relevant for me at the minute. I spent the weekend changing filenames and titles this weekend on dozens of different images after realizing that the original titles weren’t suited to a google image search. I am now finding that some of my images are showing up on top three rows. One of the ways i approached it was to look at an image that i would consider *should* be successful, and try to imagine i was buyer and looking for an artwork just like it – that’s what had driven the new titles.

    I also fully agree with the 300 words of copy, which am faithfully following for each image gallery page.

      Glad it turned out to be so timely Ray!

      I wish it were easier to always get into the minds of the audience. I have gleaned a little using Google adwords – not to place ads but to get an idea what phrases people use to search. Every so often that’s lead to a kernel of good information.

      So far, I find there’s a lot of trail and error inherent! Sometimes you have a home run. Other times, you have a lot of people coming to your site and not finding what they expected – lol!

    Great advice, Mark! I’m glad I read this before I started uploading. I feel like such a newbie when it comes to this stuff.
