I’ve been playing around with some of my data the last few days (having a bit of an overhaul to get picWorkflow running faster) and before I archive off some of my data-tables I thought this one might be of interest to you 🙂
The list shows the top 2000(ish) short-form searches (no more than 2 words) made by image-buyers on my various search tools, and the rank (i.e. relative popularity) of that search in my dataset of a somewhere near a million searches. The far-right column shows it’s comparison to the popularity of that word’s usage on stock images (collated from various agency’s over the years, across about a quarter million images).
This is essentially an epic update of my previous post from 2 years ago: TOP 1000 Stock Photo Buyer’s Searches – THE List, that post contains a lot more details about the data quality, relevance, demographics and more.
How to read the data?
A green entry suggests the search is more common than the keyword, a red entry suggests the keyword is more common than the search. It’s not bulletproof as I haven’t vetted the raw data too heavily, but it IS a good quick-reference to many of the most popular stock photo ideas and whether they’re under or over supplied.
What do you think?
Any gems in there for you? 🙂
