If you have any content with flagged keywords, it usually means that a Stocksy staff member spotted your asset in a search and felt it didn't belong. Sometimes keywords are also flagged because they're unnecessary or redundant.
Accurate metadata is important for our clients' experience, so we flag & remove keywords that are not relevant to the content. Concise metadata helps with search placement, so when we come across excessive keywords or repetitive terms, we also flag and/or remove these to help you out.
Flagged keywords don't affect search placement; your content still appears in searches for those terms in the same placement they would appear in if the keyword was not flagged. There's no penalty for not removing flagged keywords (but if your content collects several flags, we might send it back for you to improve your metadata).
Sometimes flags can be added by mistake, and we usually catch these while reviewing. If you see a keyword flag you don't understand or agree with, don't hesitate to reach out to Support and ask the Artist Relations team for feedback.
