Hip-hop is hip-hop for hip-hop in hip-hop

My personal favorite: “Hip Hop is Hip Hop for Hip Hop?”
You could say a lot about all this, but no one is listening anyway…Everything has already been said, countless times…There are absolutely no standards when it comes to reviewers. Many are doing a great job, others clearly don’t, and the proof is in the pudding…I’ll never understand why they don’t employ professionals instead of authors. There’s a huge conflict of interests anyway…in pretty much every other business this would be illegal or at least in a moral grey area, at least here in Germany.
Ridiculous is ridiculous and the ridiculous ridiculous is…
An 8 year-old could fix the search in less than a day, at least with workarounds that have been suggested in other topics, but well…

Because they:

A. Would be too expensive.
B. Would not want to waste time reviewing mostly crappy tracks.

Reviewing is a pretty mind-numbing job, and what music professional who has other, creative things, going on, would want to do that?

Maybe 10, but yeah.

The quick fix would be to remove the reward for repeated words. It’s extremely simple.

But they probably bought the search engine from somewhere, or the people who wrote it don’t work there anymore.

A) is the obvious reason, but according to the official reports that would not be an issue at all…quite the opposite…

I certainly agree with what you said, but I don’t think (working) creatives should do it.

Musicologists for example should (or musicology students in higher semesters if price really would be an issue…). Would immediately solve all the plagiarism issues too… Besides in composition I also have a degree in musicology and I can tell you I would have been happy about a job like this while studying if I wouldn’t have worked as a composer too.

You might be right about them probably having bought the search engine, good point…

Yeah, if only they knew (or knew where to find) someone who could write code. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::sweat_smile:

Yes, this is exactly the thing I also talked about. Fully support the idea, I only disagree with 7 descriptive words. 4-5 words limit is more than enough to describe any track to search engine

You could be right! These details definitely can be evaluated and changed during the discussion in the thread :blush:

I’m afraid if we had option to insert 7 or more descriptive words for search engine people will abuse it the same way they do now:

“Inspiring Inspiration to Inspire Inspirational Inspiration that Inspires my Inspiration”
:smile: :smile: :smile:

3 or 4 words are more than enough to describe a track to search engine, for example: “Upbeat Funky Hip-Hop”

But yes, you are absolutely right about using two titles, this is the ultimate solution to solve this mess quickly and easily and I fully support your idea. :wink:

hmmm this is interesting is insteresting

Keyword repetition seems to be allowed.

Original titles with keywords is not. Anyone can tell me a good reason for not allowing it? something like “Flying In The Sky (Inspirational Cinematic)” ? It’s ridiculous

Hi @jamesgiroux

What is happening with the urgent keyword issue at AJ? It’s just getting worse and worse every week.

I heard rumours that you mentioned at a meetup some time ago that the title policy would be updated asap. Though alone a title policy update is simply not enough to fix this issue, the problem needs to be fixed in the search engine as well to have any real effect.

For example using the word “music” is not allowed in keyword titles if you check the current title policy ( https://help.author.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016422271-Music-Titles-on-AudioJungle ), still this is happening all over the place, just check ambient music/happy music/corporate music etc.
