hi everyone, 

 

I keep seeing references to Alamy ranking or rather the mysterious algorithm that determines the mystery number.

 

So other then:

1) similiars (negative influence)

2) sales (positive influence)

 

what other things influence the placement of your images in the searches?

portfolio size? contribution frequency? time on?

How well your tags and caption match the search criteria.

Your CTR

Possibly the age of the image (for some searches e.g. popular travel destinations).

I was told that for some categories of search (e.g. travel) Alamy can give a higher priority to newer images. This happens even if the customer hasn't entered a [DT] .

NB. Alamy also say that they keep tuning the search algorithm. So what's true one day, may not be the next. :unsure:
