So, in my searches for V for Vendetta artwork (because that's one of the few searches I do on a regular basis...) I've noticed something:

I will often see artwork show up in my devWatch list that *doesn't* show up in an overall search (I use the "max_age:3w" filter to see what's newest).  The only ones that *do* show up are the ones that have some variant of "V" or "Vendetta" in their titles.  

So I'm wondering - are people just not using the Keyword function when they submit a deviation?  It seems a silly (and somewhat tragic) reason for a person to not receive traffic to their work...

:-?

I've always used keywords... How else would anyone find my stuff?

That's pretty much what I've always thought. But I swear, there are times when I see artwork thru my :+devwatch: that don't show up when I do a search.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I think it has a lot to do with dA and their wonky-ness... Like, every once in a while I still have problems seeing my art show up on my page when I first upload it. Sometimes it'll take an hour or more to show itself!

I don't know what the deal is with dA sometimes. I'm guessing the search feature is having its own issues! :hmm:

It wouldn't surprise me at all. Still, considering they have to stay on top of 36,020,694+ submissions, I find myself reluctant to complain overmuch! ;-)

I use keywords in every drawing. Even obscure ones, just to get traffic. I don't know, maybe people are just too lazy to type it in. :shrug:

I always use keywords! People who don't are just wonky.
