  1. Hi All, I know that August is a wicked month but my CTR has taken a nosedive. It has gone below .40 for the first time in years. Anyone else experiencing a drop in libido and flaccidity in this area? ;-)
  2. Following on from a post in another thread: I'm still learning the CTR system, which is giving me a lot of questions. For example, whether it's worth removing perfectly decent keywords due to false positives, or whether it's worth uploading images at all if I don't think they'll often be used when they show up, or whether I should upload more than one or two photos of a subject or cull images after they're no longer live news because of the huge negative impact that a single misplaced search could give me if that means 10 views without a zoom. It seems complicated.
  3. Since 1 week i'm having 0 for sales, zooms ...no views at all! I'm a bit worried... am i banned or did something wrong my ranking decreased a lot? Anyone having the same behaviour? It's the first time in about 3 yrs on Alamy something like that is happening. CTR is a bit above average
  4. When I learned about the use of KW, I thought I understood that the relevance of KW is related to CTR. The CTR is the number of Zooms divided by the number of views x 100[%]. So if I don't have a zoom, the CTR is also 0. For the last 4 weeks I find at "Alamy Measures --> Your Images" a tiny CTR of 0.18. This CTR results from one Zoom at one image, my CTR for the search term is 33.33. For all other search terms in the list, the CTR is 0.0 of course. How do I optimize my KW? Remove from all images the search terms for which I see a CTR of 0.0? These are often relevant terms (IMO
  5. Hi all again. Do people get to concerned over ctr and zooms? The figures may actually be effected (mainly zooms) i feel due to other alamy members looking for help/inspiration from other members images. May apply to the more successfull members as they would be the ones a newby might check first for ideas. Just a thought. Andy.
  6. Hi all, Although I have been registered with Alamy since 2015, it is only this year that I have started taking it seriously and uploading in volume, and this is my first forum post (although I have been lurking for a while). As I understand it the CTR rating is key to how high up your images appear in searches (is that right?), so I have taken care to keyword properly. But no matter how relevant I make the keywords my images are appearing in searches that bear no relevance to the image. As an example a couple of days ago a user searched for ‘Washing Up’ and my images of a young chil
  7. Period : 01 Feb 2017 to 17 Feb 2018 Total views for Fahd Khan: 31 Total zooms for Fahd Khan: 0 Total CTR for Fahd Khan: 0 Average CTR for Fahd Khan: 0 Top performing pseudonym: FAHD KHAN(CTR: 0.00) Last month average CTR on Alamy: 0.55 Please can some one put light on CTR 0.55
  8. I did research this a bit but didn't see a clear answer (or at least one that I understood), so hope you don't mind if I ask here. On the main dashboard page under "Alamy Measures", there is a total CTR and average CTR and I believe I understand the difference between those two (as well as the Alamy average). However, if you click the "Your Images" tab just under that, the Average CTR and Total CTR numbers are completely different (and much higher at least for me). So, which number accurately reflects how well I'm doing against the Alamy average? Fairly new here and stil
  9. HI Quick one. Do views and clicks on Live News images count towards CTR and show in stats? Thank you
  10. Looking to My Images today i noticed a behaviour that makes me think again to the relationship between CTR and similars. When i initially upload a batch of images which contains let's say 3-5 similars per subject i see a huge number of views for these images, let's say hundreds. I have these pictures foundable by "classroom Mali Africa" which initially returned 200-500 views/week for about 100 pictures. I guess that was probably because customers filters "New" so ALL my pictures of that topic were displayed in the search. At that stage 200-500 views/week for "classroom Mali
  11. Sorry folks, this is another of my what's changed since I was active posts. I've done a search of the forums and read a few interesting posts suggesting that pseudonyms are no longer independent of each other. When I was active and submitting regularly the general thinking was that it was good practice to split the images into different pseudonyms because it meant that an unpopular pseudonym wouldn't drag down a popular one. At the time I started creating a new pseudonym for each country of the world I had photographed, each region of the UK, and in the case of models one for eac
  12. Hi all, with yesterday' PU sale i've come to the 4 sales in a row with the image being searched from other sources than Alamy. May be the customer did a Google search or may be he/she found my image link in a large image bank around the Net. The fact is : none of my images display on Zooms or Sales, therefore i can't really know which keywords generated the sale. So CTR is affected in a bad way, because i had sales from various topics but for these keywords associated to these searches my ranking remains the old one.
  13. Hi everybody, my Alamy experience started badly with me having only 4 major sales in over one year and now 2 months from the last sale occurred in late May. It's my fault since i've uploaded in the beginning a lot of similars and may be bad keywordered files with the "cream" of having not properly post processed all my images. Most of you all veterans advised me about these things but it seems i'm a bad student My CTR is low but my views are up (few zooms actually) so it seems topics i covered are requested by customers and my CTR is not so bad. What do you suggest me
  14. Dear Forum, It doesn’t take a lot to confuse me, and the CTR subject has proved to be way beyond my limited comprehension, so I’m hoping someone will be able to shine a light on the following. In “My Alamy Measures” I have three differing values, 1) Total CTR 2) average CTR and 3) top performing pseudonym CTR In addition, there is an “average on Alamy CTR” for the last month. If I open up the “Your Images” section, neither the rates for my total CTR, my average CTR or my top pseudonym match the figures already mentioned above, in fact the only consistent figure
  15. Hi! When looking at view grid of my images I have noticed twice lately that an image of mine would get a view for a search term that I cannot recognize, meaning that the image does not have that as a keyword. The latest offender is the word "backpulver". I have never used that keyword, yet I have an image collecting a view for it. Moreover, when I go check out the entire Alamy and punch in "backpulver", none of my images show up. The other occurrence was my images getting a view for a non-English search term. Needless to say, all of my keywords are in English. Has anyone else seen th
  16. Hi all, Im sure this has been asked 10000 times but was wondering if someone could have a look see what I can do to increase sales and rank or any tips general to help me to improve my rank, would be most appreciated. I do know it takes time and effort and luck really as I only have 500+ images at the moment. Thanks in advance Peter
  17. I've 3500+ images on my port but following many contributor advices i decided to improve my existing images keywording instead of adding new ones. In particular looking at My Images i recently noticed that i've some Views related to the Location .. i mean , just the location keyword itself. For i.e. i've thousand of views for "Mali" which is strange.. I never imagined buyers searching for the country or the city only. In the above example i imagined searches like "Mali school" or "Mali children", from which i actually had views but much fewer than searches for the word "Mali" standalone. D
  18. Hello everyone, My questions may seem they come from a noob because in reality, they do. I often see a lot of people talking about CTR and Zooms, what are those and where can I check my stats? I have 66 pictures uploaded and on sale (I understand that's nothing), but my question is, how many pictures did you guys have before the first sale popped up? I have less than half of that on other sites and have had a few sales, though not many to be honest. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks everyone. David Edit - I've found out what CTR and Zooms are since creating this post henc
  19. Hi everyone, I joined Alamy a couple of months ago, and have now got 178 photos uploaded on here. I've very much an amateur rather than professional and I'm obviously not expecting huge sales through this site, but am a little concerned that so far I've only 411 views, and my CTR is 0. I've been careful with key wording, and have read around the forums for general advice, but I was wondering if anyone observed anything specific about my portfolio. I'm about to go on a 9 month trip around the world and plan to take a whole lot more photos! Can't wait Be great to get any views advic
  20. I like to browse the Customer search activity of Alamy measures to identify possible clients interest. Specifically I search for search terms, that yield only a small number of pictures. What about an advanced search for the "All of Alamy" measures, where we could enter ranges for UCO, Sales,Zooms, Views and CTR. That way one could search a specific area of interest and narrow it down to say - terms that sold at least once, resulted in a CTR of x to y%, but yielding only 1 to 99 images. or any other combination. Also the number of search words could be an interesting paramete
  21. Hi all, i'm a newbie in Alamy but have some skills about the concept of CTR. We all know it's basically a "# of Zooms / # of Views" kind of thing, right? Higher CTRs mean usually more Sales (not a math relationship btw). As all math ratios, the more Views we have the worst CTR we're gonna expect from our pictures. Views are the result of a combination of multiple Keywords and math says the more Keywords the more combinations, so # of Views. for i.e. i had Views for the search term "Miami" alone of pictures i did of a Miami beach gay party which is NOT what i wanted since "Miami" keyword a
  22. When I am on the forum I often have a look at members photos as I am curious to see what sort of photos they have on sale. But if I zoom on any of them does that get recorded and show up on your Alamy measures?
  23. My sales on Alamy this year have been nought short of abysmal. So much so, that I am even considering joining the controversial UK Newspaper Scheme. I can't help but feel that here at Alamy, sales are far too dependent upon rank - which is highly reliant upon sales. Get into a negative spiral and you will never be found again. The BHZ game sees me 'ranked' higher than ever before, yet my CTR is trash. It seems that Alamy's random (?) 'tweaks' to their search algorithms mean that it is pointless making changes to keywords based upon search results, as that changes with time? I am in ag
  24. 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
