Measures not picking up all views and zooms over past 10 days?


Recommended Posts

Yup - certainly I am now showing about 5000 more views and 50 more zooms for august than I was showing earlier this month.

 

Looks like there was a problem and it has been fixed, hopefully.

 

Thanks Alamy

Yep everything is back in order. You have all been right and I was wrong. No returning summer dip. At least not with Measures. Maybe with the tech department.

August has been a very normal month equal to July.

Now back to bean re-counting. 😂

Email reply from Alamy.

'We’ve since spoken to our IT team, and they are aware of an issue with the Alamy measures. They’re trying to resolve this as soon as possible.

Apologies for the inconvenience.'

I now have an extra 6 zooms added and almost 1,000 more views so IT have done something to correct this.

Hope it runs smoothly again now.

why would it be different from any other such reporting of issues with it over last 12 months? 

1.Ignore. 2.Deny any issue. 3.'"Technical problem" message 4. IT looking into it 5. Some random change happens 6.Radio silence 7. Rinse and repeat

Quite a few Zooms are now showing that I hadn't seen previously.

 

Interesting that only a minority of sales were zoomed ( blue). The first thumbnail sold 5 times without even one zoom.

My zooms have more than doubled from 35 to 74 with the lights being turned back on. Now for those sales........

The glitch started probably in the weekend of August 15 or a bit later that week.

My views and zooms have roughly doubled.

This still bugs me to a certain extent. The recovery of views and zooms up to the end of August produced a lot of missing data which improved my statistics although, to be fair, not quite to where they were in previous months. Since the 1st September my views have recovered slightly but still down a touch but absolutely no zooms for which I expect an average of one per day based on past experience. CTR is starting to drop like a stone. Has anybody else noticed this or am I just being paranoid? My suspicions remain that this is still not performing correctly.

From today's measures data I agree it may still not be working properly

The page was down for a period this morning, with the boy searching for the issue with his binoculars. It's very clear that there are serious issues with Alamy's systems, the only question being whether they are migrating to a new one which will be more stable or are they just patching up holes as they appear.

 "The boy searching for the issue with his binoculars" shows up EVERY SINGLE MORNING just right after the update when a bunch of us starting checking the new results at the same time. Then the system experiences a glitch for about 15-20 mins ... It's nothing new.

I have actually got a 'zoom' today which is good news.

All we need now is a sale to go with it!!

Jim.

 

which to me is another big problem, i last 4 months i only have one zoom that has to date been reported as a sale.  This is likely my lowest ratio in in over 2 years.

What I meant was any sale from anywhere! But I do agree with you regarding zooms that result in sales - very few from here too.

i understood, but my recent ratio has been so bad, that i'm wondering why i even care about zooms anymore.

You have a point there! After all. at the end of the day we are here to try and make sales irrespective of zooms.

especially since there is less and less evidence of any reranking at the account level happening

Zooms, views, CTR - all I care about is sales. Zooms mean nothing in the greater scheme of things and I could care less about them. Am I in the minority?
