KODAKovic posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceLooking 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 Africa" were too much and in fact my CTR was affected and a few zooms and sales resulted. So, similars were badly affecting CTR but there was a benefit for me: at least 1 picture out 5 similars was the right one for customers and they bought some. Today, for the similar search i've let's say 30 Views (the ones more appreciated by customers) but these Views are only of the best performers with more chances of zooming so my CTR is higher. In the long run, similars not interesting for customers will disappear from searches so they'll not represent any issue at all. Let's sum.... similars generate customer curiosity if the topic is interesting, so not bad at all if viewed in this perspective right?
