  9. Dramatic drop in views

    I do not think my drop has anything to do with AoA in particular. I assume Alamy search algorithm has changed and my port after some grace period was downgraded possibly due to low CTR or some other unknown to me reason... will have to find a way to get back "up" again...
  10. Dramatic drop in views

    Would be nice to hear some comments from Alamy... bit flabagast about the whole thing. If my views remain that low i will need to upload at least another 10k to only get back where i was so far and to at least keep the same sales level i`m currently on. That`s not very motivating The only other logical explanation in may case would be non existing zooms that impacts my CTR and i assume this would push my images further down but still that drop was/is a bit harsh... Anyway lets hope things will improve next week! Thanks for all your comments! Have a good weekend everyone!
  11. Dramatic drop in views

    to some extend yes but as Niels Quist mentioned you could be missing out on potential exposure. If its not spamming there is no harm having more then ten... If i have the keywords I`ll add them in if not I move along.
  12. Dramatic drop in views

    Only 38 views today. More than 5 but still not very promising... My sales picked it up finally and I started getting at least one a month but wary now with views being so low i wont get much exposure and possible sales... being hopeful tho that this is just a temporary glitch... right back to keywording
  13. Dramatic drop in views

    Thanks Joseph! Hope that`s the case!
  14. Dramatic drop in views

    hmm... i think someone mentioned change in search algorithm but that`s a massive blow for me. I know i dont have a big port yet and although not really suffering from too many zooms (recorded only 38 for the last 12 months) at least i thought my views are growing along with my port and sales are slowly started to creep in. But now with 5 views not sure if i can scratch any surface in here... Hope this is just temporary glitch and all be back to norm soon... Thanks Michael
  15. Dramatic drop in views

    Morning All, Did anyone notice dramatic drop in views? My views plummeted in the last few days, yesterday being epic - only 5 recorded. I would usually have around 100 +/-... Thanks Michael
