I sense a re-rank

Recommended Posts

My views fell away to nearly nothing yesterday and a bhz check today confirms that I have been cast out to the wilderness.

 

 

Hope this is  a glitch, but suspect not :(

Perhaps but my base test search (not bhz) only moved around 4-6 places on pages 3 & 4. No more than if new content had been added by a higher ranked contributor.

Mine haven't moved. I would welcome a re-rank just to see if my previous 'best' pseudonym would recover from the relegated position of Page 30!! I sense the long term effect of this is now impacting on my sales results.

No change for me.

Based on just a couple of quick searches, so this could be wrong, but I think it is more likely a bug fix or change to the diversity algorithm rather than a re-rank.

Hmm.

I left one in by accident after the tag weighting scare and I've come up 5 or 6 pages..............and it's a supertag and in the caption.

Better delete them now.

I'm relieved to find myself back on page one of one of my more common searches after bombing a short while ago

No change here using BHZ (with BHZ added to the caption). Other searches look unchanged as well.

No real change - I am still on p5 after dropping from p1 in the 5/12 search engine changes - though I have noticed that sometimes I am near the bottom of p5, and occasionally, as today, I am near the top (120 images/page, no RF images, BHZ as the first supertag, BHZ not appearing in the caption or any other keyword)

No change here, including BHZ only as a supertag.

Haha! I hope Alamy are doing something with the BHZ results, because my pseudos appear in pretty much exact reverse order of success! My biggest selling pseudo, with the most zooms, comes almost at the end. The second most successful pseudo comes a little higher. Highest of all is the one I dump images into when I realise there are plenty of better ones of the main subject on Alamy! 

 

I haven't checked BHZ for several months, so I'm not sure if this is a new thing or not.

 

Perhaps an algorithm tweak, changing the weighting of, say, supertags and words in the caption compared with tags, would look like a re-rank?

My main pseudo appears to have been promoted to page three from page four. However, I haven't checked BHZ for a long time, so I don't know when that happened.

 

I'm always amazed to see Jesus still reigning in the #1 position in BHZ searches. Divine intervention? B)

That last views count was for a Sunday (Doh!!) 

 

Views and zooms pretty good yesterday.

Something has happened, maybe not a re-rank, but something is definitely going on.

 

My BHZ image has come UP from around page 18 (Think it was) to Page 2. :) 

 

GET IN THERE. Whoopeeeee! :lol:

Well my BHZ image for my best pseudo has gone from p 1 (pre 05/12) to p8 (post 05/12 to p 23 today!!!  And yet all the normal real life test searches show no change for that pseudo.  I don't know what is going on.

Did you add BHZ to the caption or make it a normal tag? That must be it.   :D

 

Geoff.

 

 

Just looked to see where I put BHZ and find it is in the Caption and is also a Supertag.   Originally it was in the Caption and Essential keywords and promise you I have not altered it since the change.
