Now you can edit your uploads

That’s one important feature that was missing from clker ! Now, once you login and browse to a clipart that you uploaded you can:

  1. Delete the clipart in case you uploaded it by mistake
  2. Change the titles
  3. Remove wrong tags
  4. Add description

Good practices with title: One of the most important meta data is the title. It helps others to find your clipart through search engines like google as it gives them a clue about what that image is about. Setting your title in English helps google to translate the page when searches are done on localized googles ( and yahoos ). So, if a user goes to google.com.it and searches for eagle silhouette in Italian, google will translate that into english and match it against its inventory of images and pages and may match your upload. It already knows that the given phrase is in Italian because of the google domain being searched.

However, if you set your clipart’s title in Italian, it will take google months to figure out that this phrase is Italian as the rest of the page is English and the website is hosted in the US!. This means that if any one searches for eagle silhouette in english, they will not be able to locate the clipart.

Recommendation: Keep titles in english

Good practices with tags: There three main sources of tags:

  1. You when you upload the SVG. We use the meta data inside the SVG to generate the initial set of tags.
  2. You and others that visit clker and tag the images
  3. clker itself …. yes, under certain conditions, clker can figure out by itself a new tag for a clipart by analyzing what people search for, and what they finally click on.

Any of those might contain mistakes. Removing those erroneous tags helps clker categorize the clipart as well as correctly rank it in searches.

You should add tags in your language, beside tagging the clipart in English. Currently, UTF-8 characters with accents are not supported, but will be soon.

Recommendation: Add tags both in english and in other languages.

Adding descriptions: That’s one important piece of information about your clipart. My recommendation is to post it both in english and in the other language you like.

You can add UTF-8 characters in the description now. ( see here for an example http://www.clker.com/clipart-29760.html )

Recommendation: Add descriptions both in english and in other languages.
