Hey guys,

Just a heads-up to let you know we’ve had a few back-end technical problems with our proofing system the past few days, particularly in the Updates Queue. You may not have noticed anything because Adrien, Andy and Stefan, the AudioJungle reviewers, are always on top of their game and keep the queues up-to-date for you! But I thought it was worth mentioning for those who have items in the Updates Queue. We have about 10 files in the regular queue and around 40 items in the Updates Queue presently and we’ll get around to processing them all just as soon as the dev team fix the ongoing issues. We apologize for any inconvenience and I’ll keep everyone posted in this thread if we encounter any further issues. Thank you for your patience! :)

Hey Kontramax, it applies to all marketplaces.

I don’t disagree with you, some more keywords might be helpful and who knows, maybe we will bump up the # of keywords in the future. But think about it this way for a moment: A customer will typically type 1, 2, maybe 3 keywords into the search field when they are looking for something. Let’s say they type “piano romantic”.

As long as you have “piano” and “romantic” in your keywords, you’ve done everything you can to tag your file correctly. Customers aren’t going to search on “piano romantic tuba lonely sad mournful percussion violins” to find what they are looking for. So in many ways, 15 keywords is MORE than enough to describe your music.

Simultaneously, you are forgetting that you can still incorporate important keywords into your description, no matter how good/bad you think your English is. (Your English sounds fantastic to me by the way!) :) Take a look at this:

Old way:

piano tuba lonely sad mournful pensive romantic film video

New way:

This is a romantic melody with slightly mournful undertones played almost entirely on the piano and accented with tuba. Somewhat sad and pensive, this piece of music is most suited towards film and video.

That doesn’t really take long to do and we’re not going to penalize anyone for poor English (unless it is totally incoherent). I also think this looks and sounds more professional to the customer than a list of 50+ keywords on a page.

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:

http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/we-are-no-longer-allowing-keywords-in-file-descriptions/25471

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.
