  1. A lowish $$ “advertorial”:(is there such a word?) popped in.
  2. I have another question about affiliate commissions. I’ve had two this month but with widely varying percentages. Does it depend on the country? (One was to US and the other EU) 12 November 2019 alamy Commission 43.50% 12 November 2019 Affiliate Commission 13% 13 November 2019 Alamy Distribution Commission 30% 13 November 2019 Distributor Commission 40% Distributor Commission
  3. It’s been a great month so far. Another one today for $$ Joseph Coelho was a great subject to photograph.
  4. I did reply on October 13th saying as below. I guess you missed it. This isn’t anything to do with the efficacy of Alamy.
  5. I got my first this week. Since the total sale was $$$ i was quite happy with the amount I got.
  6. Agree with all of the above. Take M602BA for example. Where is it? You have tons of keywords for it but I suggest that most are irrelevant to the image. When your images turn up in searches for particular keywords but are not zoomed, your CTR will drop and will affect your overall rank, resulting in your images being further and further down. Words like coherent, business-like, ship, lug, methodical, ferry do not fit this image. it looks like you are using a dictionary or similar to add keywords eg synonyms for ‘speed’ like swiftness. Check AoA to see if the less common words for a simple term are being used by clients to search. In my experience someone is much more likely to search for ‘speed’ than ‘swiftness’. Think about what words you would use if you were searching for a particular type of image. I have considerably reduced the keywords I use as time has gone on, with better results I think.
  7. Small $ editorial use in Finland for this one. Also had a decent $$ calendar sale reported.
  8. Just got a lovely $$$ US affiliate marketing sale for this one. Thanks Alamy
  9. Correct me if I’m wrong but since the search engine ignores punctuation I think US/U.S. and USA/U.S.A. would be the same so not worth distinguishing.
  10. Congratulations on your win with a great photo (which I voted for). An interesting challenge this month. Here are my three: An empty road An empty beach Empty train carriage (the only time I’ve ever experienced it)

  12. If you have a photo looking up at a ceiling in a famous building around the world then it might be worth going into a bookshop and having a look at this book https://www.amazon.co.uk/Art-Looking-Up-Catherine-McCormack/dp/0711242178 At least one Alamy photo by Rob Whitworth
  13. I haven’t had any of those uses reported for my image, so I’m surprised yours has been. Only a few days to go until I can chase them up, though.
  14. Yes, Live News images can be chased with Alamy after 4 months is up. Usually The times is good at reporting uses the following month.
  15. It's always worth keeping an eye on the Scottish Sun (and presumably other versions of The Sun) for repeated use of Live News images, though I have to say I only found this by using Copytrack. A use several months after Live News upload. https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/4801820/im-celeb-itv-stv-rangers-ally-mccoist-lorraine-kelly/
  16. Not sure this is legit. I think its a lifted use of this in the Cairns Post https://www.cairnspost.com.au/technology/uk-tipped-for-more-hotter-days-as-global-emissions-rise/news-story/c545e0a7c7ec6433b4854654aebfb73d Im not sure if this is also a lifted use https://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/climate-change/uk-tipped-for-more-hotter-days-as-global-emissions-rise/news-story/c545e0a7c7ec6433b4854654aebfb73d I will be contacting Alamy when the 4 months is up, which it will be soon.
  17. Just exceeded my 2018 revenue, but usual story, it's taken 177 images compared to 129 last year. Means I'm selling more......but
  18. Indeed, though it’s always nice to ‘break into’ a new publication. I just noticed that the license is for 50 years! Though only within one issue.
  19. A lowish $$ sale reported this morning for this one which i found recently in The New Yorker.
  20. Brilliant. Just found a photo I took in Liverpool in a credited book use published on May 31st this year. Also one there by Ken Biggs of Albert Dock. https://books.google.co.uk/books/about/Liverpool_Beyond_the_Brink.html?id=x8SbDwAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=kp_read_button&redir_esc=y
  21. Ok, no I didn’t know about that but looks useful and I will investigate. Thanks!
