Perhaps they only looked at the first 100 images, and only 1 of yours was within that first 100.

Alamy have a system ('diversity') whereby one contributor's files are scattered through a search. If you're a specialist, this means that you can end up with a lot of files right at the end of a search, particularly if there aren't other specialists in that topic. (if there are two specialists, the end of the search will be yours, theirs, yours, theirs, yours, theirs ...)

You have one image on the first row! That's really good. Is it an image that has sold before? That could maybe explain why it's there. It's certainly an attractive image. Your next images only appear 10 pages later for some reason. I would try to fulfill people's wishes re New Forest (=searches in AoA) as much as possible in your case. Shoot every subject with less than one page of views.

As the Alamy content increases to more dizzying numbers, our content is going to spread out exponentially. It's getting to the point where only the first image from one of our offerings will be shown in searches of popular subjects. And we have no way of selecting which image appears first as far as I know. I do have one image which I could never sell when I sold direct to publishers which sells over and over on Alamy in spite of quite a bit of competition. Just demonstrates how buying and selling patterns are changing, in this case I'm winning, but where I used to sell a lot of Stonehenge and Niagara Falls pix, these are a real rarity theses days.
