  1. Considering it is the first image searching "York Harbor Beach"" i guess it has not been affected
  2. but it's a problem for everyone. so in the end it should even out. My "Mosaic Wall" in "Berlin" gets hits on Berlin Wall
  3. I guess for most the feeling is that it's equal for everyone. Also, since your image will never be zoomed on a New York search, it should stop appearing in the search. I truly think the algorithm is the key.
  4. it does seem to be one of the artist's niche, so Alamy appears fine with it. Even when there is someone included in the image , they are always off the side, so the artwork can be lifted. i think as we saw last time, there is a significant reputation risk for Alamy, no financial
  5. How would you stop it? Only take exact match, which would mean a search for "Harbor Beach, New England" would skip your image.
  6. it's pictures of the exhibit. Photographer, who seems to be a major reportage artist uploaded each one. It does seem "in context", but the image do seem easily removed from the context.
  7. do you have a bookmark for "my dashboard" direct? the change are on Alamy.com
  8. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/scotland/stop-making-women-cross-border-for-late-abortions-scottish-doctors-are-told-2twpq5cwv image HR0P52 Contributor: Findlay / Alamy Stock Photo
  9. i liked all the geometry of the lines. took me a long time to find a view I felt did justice.
  10. technically not "ignored", because it splits components into all parts, so it gets replaced by a space in the search, whereas apostrophe gets ignored and search for O'Reilly gives you all the O'Reilly and Oreilly but not " O Reilly"
  11. yeah, the hyphen just splits the word, but i am not sure any engine keeps them combined (having an hyphenated first name, i'm pretty sure I haven't come across systems that understand it's only one word
  12. i agree. If i was the customer, after Bill Wood gives me 12000 results, i would do "Bill Wood" which brings down to 91 results.... note that in both case, the search engine actually gave the only image featuring Bill Wood's work as the first result, so contrarily to the premise, i think the Engine did a pretty good job, added, and then two images with a Bill Wood pictured ...
  13. not sure what you want the search engine to do. Your first image does have Bill and Wood in the data. Why would you want the engine not to bring up an image that fits the request? i think a customer would then realise they have to refine their search, and then probably spend 2 more second and search again.
  14. well done. It's one thing i would like Alamy to specify in their what to shoot, what is an actual request, and what is a we think this is missing in our database.
  15. in fact the only impact is somewhat negative, as it means certain images will not show as "other image from photograph", removing potential for multiple sales.
  16. having images in your database that don't sell is not a problem if it doesn't affect the customer experience. The algorithm has to be the differentiating effect, as well as speed probably. If the contributor that uploads 5000 image in one month, without optimising it for Alamy search never gets seen is it that much of an issue?
  17. from my side I've done a few more tests, and i still find inconclusive impact in search results and even looking in AoA seeing images in lower rated Pseudo with hits, and no hit from image higher pseudo.
  18. the above is from Adobe Stock, so the amounts refer to earnings below minimum payment thresholds
  19. Betty, just want to say that your advice to some of the newbies does get listened to by some. It's not because the question originator doesn't listen (and yes i also have notice quite a few recently) that it means your information is in vein. so as someone who has gotten a lot from the veterans, here is a big thank you.
  20. since RM is likely exclusive, do you have a similar mix to the rest of your portfolio in that subgroup? If not Couldn't the underperforming be linked to subject matter, not the RM vs RF nature of the offering? I don't know, just curious.
  21. First attempt at joining. Must say the works above are intimidating. H&W Crane in Belfast with amusement rides in puddle. (sadly a bit too windy) Crowd and Photographer in cyclist sunglasses People's silhouette in Greeting to the sun feature in Zadar
  22. how do you know there is no delays at so called "other stock sites" ? in fact i know of one that just had a bunch of retroactive adjustments all negative going back several months...
  23. not fake news An Adobe stock contributor actually posted elsewhere that his account will be closed and removed by month end due to above order.
  24. the logician in me would think you get tax benefits from money paid out to contributors as well. 😀. So it's all a question of priority from then on
  25. yeah, no problem I'm in N.I. currently so understand. Just as a foreigner myself i wanted to add the precision of the Schengen zone issue, which most people don't seem to realise makes it oddly different than Japan and the US. Though in all fairness, USA is another thing altogether to travel to.
