The current structure of the URLs for images is this:
http://www.shutterstock.com/pic.mhtml?id=########

But to get better rankings in the search engines, the URL for image pages should be remapped to something like this:
http://www.shutterstock.com/pic/Man-Tying-Shoe-Laces-########

... It's such a simple fix that could result in so much more exposure. You could build a website that is only a few weeks old, post the exact same image on that site, but if the URL was structured with the title included it would turn up to be in a higher position in the google image search engine results than the same image that is on Shutterstock, or any of the other stock agencies that use the structure that doesn't contain the title. Don't you think that a site like Shutterstock should be getting the higher position in the search engines, and not some other little site that's a few weeks old?

With a slight improvement in SEO is likely to kill the database. Multiply by 15 million
