  1. September ended up being my second best month of the year, so far, with 18 sales for $1346....closer to my average last year. In the 500 club still!
  2. 3 sales for four figures....but that includes the figures after the decimal point. The net value will buy me a CD in the UK. Not in the top 500 . In the top 35,000 .
  3. Two sales for $259 gross. So prices were good while volume was at or just below normal for me.
  4. With the zooms and CTR's all over the place over the last month I wouldn't try to draw any conclusions on these stats until the new norm has been established. dov
  5. 14 for me and in the top 500, for once. Rubbish zooms so who knows what the future will bring. dov
  6. had a welcome return to form with 19 sales just scraping over the four figure hurdle (gross). Three years ago that was pretty well the monthly norm with maybe as much as double the total sales value. May it last, I haven't suddenly done anything clever. A little keyword tidying up and just a few new images.
  7. Bit off duff information there, I'm afraid! The Total CTR is the important one for your own statistics - the total zooms divided by total views. The Average CTR is just an average of averages, which is meaningless. The number of zooms is a rolling 30 day total, not annual and will constantly change. The only real thing to aim for is as high a CTR as possible but, with small collections and few zooms, there will be wild fluctuations which don't really tell you very much. Ian D Me provide duff info? I used to be the only one who understood these. Yep I muddled total with ave
  8. I didn't want to start the topic as I had a poor September. 3 sales for $125 gross It follows a slow August, and I didn't receive the top 500 email after being in the last two times. Rob
  9. If I were a buyer the new zooms would drive me crazy because it's no longer very easy to move on after zooming. I wonder if this is going to be changed or if buyers will be more and more just relying on the mouseover zooms. Paulette
  10. Since it's now a week since the new zoom layout was introduced, I've done a quick bit of analysis on the All of Alamy figures. For the week 24th September to 30th September, there were 6,701,709 views and 16,294 zooms, giving a CTR of 0.24% For the week 17th September to 23rd September, there were 7,698,179 views and 30,057 zooms, gving a CTR of 0.39% In an email I got from Alamy last week, they admitted there was a problem which they were aware of and had rectified. However, the figures still show a substantial drop in zooms since the introduction of the new layout and, speaking for
  11. Martin, I did something similar and sent some new tax disc pics to news last night and like you was told it was stock. A little frustrating because all the other news feeds - AP, Getty etc had news pics of tax discs, can't help thinking Alamy are missing out on sales.
  12. Confusing is right guys! I must compare my total with Alamy's average CTR? Surprisingly I never noticed before that it was a one year total and that zooms were dropping off. Still, bring on the re-rank, I'm bound to finally move up a few pages! It would be nice to see if I get more zooms with a better ranking. Thanks for all the help.
  13. "The number of zooms is a rolling 30 day total, not annual and will constantly change." Ian D It's not quite that simple. Without changing anything there are 3 different Total CTR measures, reflecting 3 different measurement periods. On the opening dashboard the Total zooms and Total views are rolling annual totals and represent the number of zooms and views recorded in the period at the top of the measures statistics. As of this morning that was 01 October 2013 to 30 Sept 2014. Your dashboard total CTR is derived from this annual no of zooms / annual number of views * 100. This

  15. I'd be more inclined to compare each individual pseudonym with the "All of Alamy" average CTR. That'll give you a better idea of how each pseudo. performs. There is of course nothing to stop you using your average CTR. I'd ignore the total ctr which is a straightforward average of your CTRs (add up ctr for each pseudo and divide by number of pseudos) - it's rather meaningless and can be skewed by small pseudos. The total zooms is the number of zooms counted over a one year period so I'd guess you had two zooms on 30th Sept. 2013 which have mow fallen off.
  16. I've always been somewhat confused by the statistics on Alamy so I tend to ignore them. All I really knew was that my stats were poor. Thankfully the last 3-4 months have been quite a bit better for me--my zooms are up, I've made a couple sales and for a change my numbers seem to be on par or slightly better than Alamy's. My CTRs for the last three months are 1.61, 0.88 and 0.72. I'm curious whether I'm interpreting the numbers correctly? Does my Average CTR correlate directly to Alamy's Average CTR, and why do I have a Total CTR but Alamy doesn't? My stats under My Alamy today a

  18. Could it be that opening a zoom in a new tab or window does not count towards zooms? Or the opposite: that a regular zoom, opening in the same window, does not count towards zooms? wim
  19. I'm experiencing something similar, although my revenues climbed steadily until 2012 and then took a dive. My gross revenue for 2014 is now roughly 20% higher than that of all 2013. Big surprise, as I thought that my revenue graph was going to turn into a pyramid. Month-to-month sales are a roller coaster this year, though. Enjoying the ride while it lasts.
  20. Third time in a row I receive this email. Encouraging after such a bad month in terms of amount of sales.
  21. Interesting question. I am thinking the buyers are going to find these new zooms very inconvenient so maybe there will be future changes. Paulette
