  1. Is there a regular cycle for the Alamy Measures bit of My Dashboard (e.g. same time every 24 hours), or is it variable?
  2. Daily Measures Reporting

    I must say, it is very nice to have Measures reported so early in the day! I hope it continues. Kathy
  3. 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?
  4. Alamy Measures

    Please could 'in the Last Year' be added as an option to the search options in Customer Activity. Both All of Alamy and My Images. In the dropdown box that starts with 'Yesterday' there are plenty of other options (i.e Last month) but not 'Last Year' Also could we have a link direct to the Portfolio in My Alamy rather than clicking through the 'Link to My Images' pages. Thanks EDIT: See reply 3 below for clarification.
  5. Showing "new" searches in measures

    It was recently suggested in a forum thread that even though a subject may be saturated it may still be worth adding images of that subject because amongst other reasons it may be possible that the picture buyer uses the "new" tab. Trouble is that unless its very obvious we dont know in how much the "new" tab is used. It might be handy, if you want to incentivise those with lowly ranks to show in measures when a search involved the "new" tab much like you do with MR or WP.
  6. Alamy Measures - puzzling results

    I'm a bit puzzled (easily done) by the results I sometimes get when checking for views etc of my images on Alamy Measures. I notice last week that I had had some views of my images of the National Cycle Network - I think it was about 3 but I had uploaded more than that all with the same keywords / order. Today I've noted 4 views of Salamanca Market in Hobart but I have 8 images uploaded, again with the same keywording / order. Any ideas as to why please? Thanks, Gary
  7. Alamy Measures Question

    Hi, I'm an occasional low-volume contributor. I think I understand Alamy Measures, but there seems to be an obvious omission. When I see that my photo came up in a search, how can I see the picture that actually sold by somebody else? Surely one of the best ways of improving my sales is to see what actually sells. Is there an option I haven't found yet that shows 'Alamy sales yesterday' or something? If not, why not? Thanks.
  8. Hi everyone, The release of the full page comp (zoom) introduced a bug which meant that not all customer searches, views and zooms were being recorded correctly in the Alamy measures database. The issue has now been resolved and the missing data has been added to the database. The numbers for views and zooms are now showing similar levels to before the full page comp release and the Click Through Rates are also looking healthy again. Apologies for the delay in getting back to you, it took a while to exactly pinpoint the problems and reprocess the data. A couple of notes: 1 - this affected everyone, so your ranking will not be affected 2 - zooms and purchases were still happening as normal, it was only measures that wasn't recording the data correctly for a short time By our last count, there was at least 5 separate threads on this issue in the forum so we'll be locking them down now as the issue has been resolved. Cheers Alamy
  9. Problems with Measures again?

    I can see the first page of Measures but as soon as I select Yesterday or any date range I get a Microsoft Forefront screen with a host not available message. I got to yesterday when it had first updated but not to any date range since. Anybody else?
  10. Improving Measures

    I have been trying to grapple with the decline in performance of my portfolio. If I had the information I need I would edit it hard and monitor the performance of my portfolio going forward. It would also inform my future shoots and uploads. What I need is a way of seeing how individual images are performing. How many views, zooms, adds to lightbox has each image had since it was uploaded/ in a selected period? Happy to take it as a monthly download (after getting initial history) and maintain the database on my own computers for detailed analysis. It would be useful to also take a download of image-keywords to extend the statistical analysis. I suspect a good chunk of my portfolio has never even been viewed in many years and might be better deleted unless it is a strong image/message in a true niche. Measures does not give me that information. In these days of Big Data it is what I, and I suspect many others, need to refine our offering on Alamy, to make our portfolio more commercial. As a short term alternative it would also be useful if we were able to take images off sale without deleting them. That way we could park images we suspect may not be helping, we could then delete them if appropriate or return them to sale if they turn out not to be the problem. Anyone else?
