Change in shape of CTR plot since new search algorithm

Recommended Posts

Anyone else seeing a change in the shape of their CTR plot since the new search algorithm was introduced? My plot was always quite spiky but suddenly seems to have smoothed out.




I wonder why....


At first I thought it was just "random statistics" but the longer it goes on I think something has definitely changed. The number of images I have on Alamy hasn't changed that much so it's not the averaging effect of a larger portfolio.

 I have noticed a change in the shape to my plot as I've got older!! and yes, not as spiky as it once was and definitely a little smother. The wife said she noticed it awhile back.



Cheers and gone.

Yes, mine also smoothed out after the changes. However, it has started to spike again during the past couple of months. A client had a zoom-fest with some of my images (not complaining) earlier this month, so my CTR is currently reaching for the stars.

I retagged my images, deleted 2000 images, and converted everything to RF in the new Image Manager when it became available.

Since then my CTR has risen about 30% from before, and is not as spikey.

Even more interesting I have two pseudos.

William Brooks contained 1328 images that I really liked, and thought were my best.

Bill Brooks had 14023 lesser images that I thought were good meat and potatoes images. In the retagging I deleted 2000 of the weakest images in the Bill Brooks pseudo, leaving 12,023 under Bill Brooks. I deleted nothing from the William Brooks pseudo

Formally William Brooks was my best performing pseudo by a large margin. For the last 2 months Bill Brooks has been my best performing pseudo.

I think the takeaway is, it is more important to edit tightly, than to get your image numbers up.
