  1. Hows your CTR doing from 1st August?

    Two of the search terms which have resulted in the higher view counts on my port have unusually had a zoom each. I would imagine this is very positive for CTR. Normally the higher-viewed search terms are very non-specific so throw up huge numbers of images which clearly aren't appropriate. One such is 'space war', in the news recently. I have a great deal of military images with 'copy space', but sadly none in space!
  2. Hows your CTR doing from 1st August?

    Interesting. 0.64 when my total average is 0.46. I'd noticed an increase in zooms, the actual images of which being the only detail I normally take notice. I usually have around forty images showing for the rolling month and it's currently been running towards sixty.

    I'm not sure how the newspaper would know if the contributor was accredited. Images would just appear from the various agencies, regardless, wouldn't they?

    And they also need to add BHZ as a supertag and nowhere else if they want to get an idea of their rank. As Martin and others have pointed out, there are so many factors that will skew the results but it should give people an idea of where they are in comparison with any other contributors who have followed the same 'rules'. Of course it shouldn't be taken too seriously, but it's about the only method of gauging where you are against some form of level playing field. If you search using keywords that apply to some of your images it'll put you high on the list if you're particularly skilled in captioning and keywording - ie, exactly what you want in the real world - but it won't give you an idea of your rank.

    Thanks for the input, but could I ask whether it would have drawn so much interest if it was just the rickshaw........

    OK, she's got shorts on.

    I think that confirms that ranking is now a part of the daily database update, as it logically should always have been.
  10. Re-rank

    Mine didn't, which has influenced my position - plus a lapse in following these threads. It probably depended on how many words you had as essentials at the changeover
  11. Re-rank

    Exactly the same here. Just above half way down, the naked rickshaw rider. We could be page ten of ten of contributors with BHZ as a supertag! I'm pretty sure the image at first place on page one was a photograph of the sky with writing in 'cloud' including the word Jesus but it seems to have gone.
  12. Re-rank

    They all need to be the same. BHZ search results will only show our rank in relation to each other. If you force your way up the list by one means or other it's just fakery.
  13. Re-rank

    Me too. Trouble is, if some contributors have left theirs as normal while others have also upgraded BHZ to a supertag then the whole thing will be superfluous!
  14. Re-rank

    'Facepalm emoji'. Just checked mine and it's entered as a normal tag. Probably a hangover from the AIM change. Changing it will be an interesting test.
  15. What?!

    That's the thing. They must have made a decision recently to use NU to 'win' sales that they might otherwise have lost out on had they been offered at the correct licence value, hence this spate of NU reports.
