I've just noticed a very long number (about 20 digits) in the keywords of four different files of mine.
I didn't put them there.
Have you ever seen this before.

I would imagine that they're probably codes for the color-match search or some other encoded information which iStock use to identify particular elements of the images. It makes sense to put such information in the keyword field of each image's record in the database because the field already exists.

I looked at 3 of mine over the past year. No weird stuff to be seen.

What happens when you do a search using the number?

When I noticed the numbers I just deleted them without thinking that it might be useful for one thing or an other... doh!!!
btw, it was 4 times the same number in 4 of my best selling pict.
