I never know, when people mention their CTR, exactly what they are referring to. Is it their total for the rolling year, or their average (if more than one pseudonym)? Or is it either total or average for the rolling month? It makes quite a difference as to which figure you choose.

I meant the CTR showing on the monthly graph.

I would have thought with the amount of sales you have had it would be much higher!

In comparison if you are talking about April CTR, mine was 1.04

 

 

 

Live News don't have an input into CTR, until after they hit the main stock side, and then the descriptions may get a few more false results, so I can see why the CTR of a successful Live News could lead to interesting results, depending on number of images per submissions....

Yes, my CTR is stubbornly low despite a lot of work culling tags to make them as specific as possible. But I have noticed my images appearing relatively high up on search terms. I think the kernel must be in Alamys’ comment that CTR is only a part of the overall ranking.

And my CTR has since dropped below 0.60 anyway. I’ve long since given up worrying about it.

Which is why I always try to edit the captions of Live News images to be only relevant to what a particular image shows.

4 sales in this month (May 2020) so far. Unusual for me as I am used to get a sale after couple of months.

Total CTR is currently twice the Alamy average, three sales this month for a total of $$$ and if (but it's a big if) sales continue at the level achieved so far this year I might end the year 20% up on last year.

Just had a low $$$ sale pop up!

 

I've 6 sales this month and the lowest of those is $30 with an average of $54.50, when I usually average about $25.

 

My Revenue total so far this month is the best for 10 months - with 10 days still to go!!

A sale reported in April of last year was finally paid for and I'll be getting a payout around the first week in June.  Fish photos, which seem to be low three figures the two times I've sold those.

Thanks Bill. The same image was reused/resold the following month for nearly half, by the same buyer I think so, and finally in March by  another half. Not too bad.

A small achievement for many of you, but still giving me hope.

Today I had my first zoom since February.

Had sales since Feb, but not a single zoom, and my CTR was sliding down down down...

Hopefully this will slow the sliding.

I did not mean so quickly!! I'm actually at Douglas Daly but will be in Darwin in the next few days. Given the distances in Oz, me saying I'm in Darwin sounded right. LOL!!.

Can you e-mail me at genvallee33 at gmail dot com?

Ok,

No worries.

Don't freeze on the way up here.

(It is unusually cold for us up here now. 20 degrees Celsius just right now. And this morning I turned the heater on in my car for the first time in years)
