I'm a relatively new user without any sales at the moment. I recently did a search for some of my images using a variety of the tags and supertags (all other fields are filled too) and failed to find my photographs. If I can't find them I can't expect anyone else too. Why are they not discoverable at all?

First search I tried. Your red kayaks are on page one (17 pages in total)

Remember though that newbies start with a medium rank. When you don't manage to get a few sales within the first few months >>>>> your ranking will drop significantly and your images will be pushed to the back.

 

Cheers,

Philippe

Ranking used to be based upon the previous 300 days.

It's anybody's guess as if that is still the case, though.

It should still be the case. Was confirmed by Corin (CR) last week:

 

Hi Philippe,
 
Yes, CTR still plays a role in the overall ranking.
 
Thanks
Corin

 

Cheers,

Philippe

your FOA9MK comes up as the very first image for a search:

Trofeo de Palma cycle race

 

you want better than that  for discoverability?
