  1. 10 sales and one refund from a sale in November 2019, total net $28.80. Near-micro prices but far below micro volume. I managed to get away at last, in September, but at least there's now no question about where the bulk of my photos from the trip should be sent.
  2. That said, I only care about CTR if it affects Alamy Rank and therefore position in search.
  3. Funnily enough, when I started in stock, my keywording was perfect - probably much better than it is nowadays - as not only did my other place formerly insist on pixel perfection, 'their ideal' lighting etc, but they rejected for poor keywording. Those were the days!
  4. I've still got: Sorry, there's a problem in fetching the data requested. Please try again later.
  5. Not even a "Thank you for bringing this to our attention". Just a 'thanks' at the end, which is short for "thanks for your continuing forbearance, over which you have no choice".
  6. And 1929 could be the number of fronds on the palms. Good game, good game ...
  7. I know you won't appreciate this, so I'm going to throw in a quick comment then return to the uncontroversial matter of inaccurate keywording. Much of your portfolio looks like the cheesiest* microstock from c2005. Micro has moved on since then, and that's a totally different market from Alamy. *muy cursi Anyway, back to keywording. Keywords: 1929, america, andalusia, architecture, capital, city, coloration, cultural, culture, display, environment, europa, european, fountain, freshness, frog, garden, historical building, history, landscape, l
  8. I I realise you're not captioning in your native language, and I appreciate the difficulty, but you need to caption and keyword accurately. The above photo looks to me like the content of a bag of pot pourri (popurrí) with a lot of dyed, dried plant-origin materials. But you have captioned it "mix of green herbs on white background", which is wrong. Also, most of your keywords are totally wrong: agriculture, baby, background, biological, chives, closeup(?), cooking, diet, dill, favor, food, fresh, garden, green, greener, health, healthy, herb, ingredien
  9. Well, good news. The OP TLS file was reported today and priced at $53.18 gross, $21.27 net. I'm guessing TLS would normally have a discount, so 🙂 (shame about the extra 20% though).
  10. Why should we lose 20% because PAlamy didn't hire enough people to get through the backlog before the contract change?
  11. Meanwhile, re the unreported TLS use above, I got an email: "We have received confirmation that this use will be billed this week. We're sorry for the lengthy delay on this query. " Then last night I found another unreported use, this time from November 2020. So I contacted Alamy. It was on a Russian website but credited to Diomedia. Answer: Thanks for sending this over. We do have a relevant download from a distributor so we’ve passed this on to our distribution team to bill. Shouldn't we (logically and morally, if not contractually) be getting the 60% on u
  12. Yes, I try to caption in sentences. The OP was specifically asking about captions, as she currently captions with keywords.
