Keywords to block and delete - production companies & distribution companies

The IMDb keyword guidelines include these two guidelines:

  • Production Company - The production company for a title will not be accepted as a keyword (e.g. amazon-studios)

  • Distribution Company - The distribution company for a title will not be accepted as a keyword (e.g. netflix)

Pursuant to those guidelines, the following keywords should be deleted and blocked from further use:

Hi keyword_expert -

These keywords have now been removed and blocked.  The changes should be live on the site shortly.

Thanks again!

@Michelle​ I believe these keywords have not actually been blocked. I just tried to add a random sample of these keywords to a title, and none of the sample keywords appear to be blocked.

On a related note, netflix-original is still at 551 titles.

Hi @keyword_expert​ -

Hmm, that's odd.  I have now pushed the Block through again, which appears to be working now.  I have also removed the outstanding 'netflix-original' keywords that were likely recently added. 

Thanks again!
