Today we’re announcing some changes to how tags work on GraphicRiver and our first steps to optimize them better for search engines.
At the moment there are just over 600,000 tags in use on GraphicRiver. These tags include many variations of the same base tag. Over the coming weeks we’ll begin cleaning up many of these tags to improve discovery, and we’ve been careful to do so in a way that preserves SEO value and ensures that any removed tags are redirected. For example, the tag botle, a misspelled version of bottle, will now be redirected back to bottle as the primary tag.
Our goal with these changes is to improve discoverability for users on-site and those searching for items through search engines.
Our engineering team will be doing this and no action is required on the part of authors. However, we encourage you to revisit your tags at any time to check spelling and optimize them for maximum discoverability.
