I'm afraid that this is the best that I can offer right now, but it feels somewhat positive for me.  My uploads for this month are now at 200+.  Now I know that that is chicken-feed and a bog-standard monthly effort for many here (there are those who would do that in a day, every day - I'm thinking in particular of someone who used to post here v regularly for a few years!). But for me this is major - it's my highest monthly upload ever🤯 I am well aware that this in no way equates to selling more here (even relative to my own paltry efforts), and I don't just throw everything to the wall to see what sticks, but I'm pretty rubbish at being brave enough to be selective to sell!  I believe (and hope!) that most of my predominately editorial (that's what I've found sells for me here) uploads this month will prove effective a few months down the line.  If they do, then they'll be getting 50% at least. :)

 

 

Still a good effort there....we can only do what's relative to us...but the more pics in the lottery, gives us more chance of a return stating the obvious...I have been catching up on a backlog of images myself....It gives us something to do in these troubled times...It's still positive, you have to appreciate what opportunities we individually have.

Sales not good but $115 payout helps.

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.

Average 0.72

Total 0.59

Pseudo 0.98

All best ever I think!

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....

I know, I just thought the CTR would be higher (I sell more live news than stock)

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.
