New Keywording Service Adheres to Specifications of Thirty Stock Image Distributors

Service ideal for Stock Image producers on a budget - Greatly enhances sales prospects for any individual or company that produces commercial stock photography or stock illustration.

Ottawa, Canada, March 14, 2009 --( World Metadata, a leading provider of keywording services to the stock image industry, today announced that henceforth, all clients will now receive keyword sets formatted and optimized for at least thirty of the world’s top stock image distributors - including all of the most popular microstock outlets. Stock image producers can now choose to output image metadata in a format that adheres to individual distributor rules governing grammar, plurals, synonym tolerance, restrictions on word/character counts, technical keywords and so on.

At the same time, World Metadata have come forth with aggressive new pricing that make professional keywords an affordable option for everybody – even in these challenging economic times.

“It’s a well-documented fact that images associated with a strong set of keywords enjoy a significant advantage in terms of search engine visibility, and visibility is key to maximizing sales revenue,” explains Grant Kimmons, president of World Metadata. “Complicating matters is the fact that fact that every image distributor these days seems to have their own definition as to what constitutes a proper set of keywords. Failure to follow their exact specifications not only puts your collection at a sales disadvantage, but can often serve as a reason for having your images rejected outright!”

Until today, creating and optimizing keywords to satisfy multiple distributors has been a time-consuming and prohibitively expensive undertaking, but no more.

World Metadata invites every image producer, big or small, to get in touch and arrange to have a small sampling of images keyworded at no cost. This will provide prospective clients with a no-obligation opportunity to evaluate the quality of their work, and at the same time, see how World Metadata’s unique approach to metadata creation adds value to their images.

World Metadata is a Canadian company with extensive experience in the field of metadata creation. Images and footage belonging to several companies and keyworded by the World Metadata team enjoy enhanced sales on all of the world’s major stock distribution portals.
