Yes, file descriptions are still indexed. But tags take highest priority and precedence in search results. Tags are weighted higher than a description. So if you write a good description in sentences and then back that up with upto 15 solid, meaningful tags, you’re good to go.
Yes, we still allow 15 tags. The reasoning behind that is we’d be back to the file description issue where some authors might want to add 60+ tags, most of which are irrelevant. 15 should give you plenty to describe your music, still make it relevant, and keep anyone from abusing the system with irrelevant or excessive keywords.
Don’t forget that you can still describe your work in sentences in the file description. That’s the whole point of the file description.
Adding a list of keywords to your file description is no longer allowed, please see the announcement:
Please make sure you take full advantage of our tagging feature that allows you to add 15 tags/keywords to your file. Any submissions we receive with a list of keywords in the file description will be rejected and you will be asked to resubmit your item. This policy change will take place with immediate effect.
Thank you for your co-operation.
