I recall a forum thread a while back in which (besides carrying on the eternal debate about the pros and cons of RM and RF), it was said that Alamy prefers RF because this is increasingly what clients want. This has stayed at the back of my mind, and I thought it should be possible to test how true this is by counting the number of searches in Alamy Measures that specify RM and RF. AM appears not to provide any information other than the search terms on all-of-Alamy searches, so I went to my own most important pseudonym and looked up searches from 1st January to 30th June this year. I stopped counting after 100 pages of search results. Here are the results: Searches that specify RM or RF RM: 25 searches RF: 14 searches Distribution of RM and RF in pseudonym RM: 95% RF: 5%. The results should be treated with a lot of caution. First of all, number of searches that specify RM or RF is very small and more data might change the picture. Secondly, most of the images under this pseudonym are RM and this probably skews the results. I used only one pseudonym because my pseudonyms aren't subject-exclusive so a lot of searches show up in more than one. Thirdly, results are also likely to vary by subject matter. But if more forum members were willing to chip in with their own figures, we might build up a more general picture.
I am new user so I can be totally wrong... I looked at "All of Alamy" stats from last 30 days and took numbers: number of pages with at least one sale: 128 first ten of the biggest sales (sum): 133 Then I took stats from 1 Jul 2016 - 1 Aug 2017 number of pages with at least one sale: 400 first ten of the biggest sales (sum): 213 Looks like a big drop in only one year...
Hi all, Not sure if this is helpful to anyone but I went through the 'images found for October 2015 thread'. I added all of the sales by image numbers starting A-F. Here are the results: A - 147 sales B - 193 sales (best by quite a margin) C - 159 sales D - 144 sales E - 125 sales F - 40 sales (unsurprising as current) 808 total images mentioned - 61.75% in the A-C range so we can extrapolate that older images do sell well. Note - I have only complied these from the thread entries where image is visible or the number has been added in the text description. I tried to eliminate duplicating numbers where an image had been quoted (in thanks) in a subsequent entry.
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?
