Description (optional)

Provide a description of the video's subject, location, special circumstances, or any other interesting or valuable information regarding the clip. Description should not include models' names or ethnicity, trade names or copyrighted material/names.

Keywords

At Anistock we call our keywords "Tags". We prefer between 8 and 20 tags per piece of content. You can have multiple words in a tag; example "blue moon" is counted as one tag. Simply type in your tag (single or multiple words) and hit enter to move on to next tag. Once you review your tags for spelling, Please press the "Save Keywords" button.

Tip: Be specific and keep it relevant. How well you keyword a stock video determines how often the search engine displays it while a client searches. The trick is to appear in relevant searches; getting in front of the buyer determines the success of your footage. But accuracy is essential so we don't irritate clients who want to find something specific.

What is it? Describe the subject of your video. You have 20 words to describe all the pertinent details, and the more specific you are; the more likely your video is to be found by the right searches. What is it? Is it a dog, in a park, barking? Two Love hearts, close up, animation, hearts pumping? A young woman, in a business suit, in an office, on a laptop, against a white background? Then be sure to tell the search engine the correct information. Remember each tag can have multiple words such as "dog barking in park" counts as one tag.

Describe Everything: Be Specific: Be very specific about the subject. For stock footage of people, include physical characteristics, ages, ethnicity, emotion, and mood. Is the woman grumpy? Is the man overweight, or even obese? Is the model animated?

Use a few of your tags/keywords for everything happening in your video; each of the primary subjects, the background and the action. Your video is like a sentence; be sure to include each of the nouns (the people, places and things in the clip) and each of the verbs (what they're doing) as well as the situation. Imagine you are a newspaper journalist, asking questions about the scene, and answer, who, what, when, where and why.

Try to imagine all the different words a person might use to describe the same thing. For example: ocean, sea, pacific, waves, blue ocean.
