I really don't understand what's going on at DT this month. I had a good January however both my sales and earnings for February are projected to be almost 50% down on January. They have literally halved from one month to the next.

My RPD has also been in free-fall for about a year but especially so since September when I uploaded several hundred new files, adding about 20% to my portfolio size. This time last year my RPD was usually about $2.30-2.40. Now it is $1.06-10. It is as if I've suddenly gone back to 2007-8.

Is anyone else experiencing similar issues at DT?

I am having the same kind of month as your are.  Earnings have completely collapsed compared to last month.

It's good to remember that DT penalizes you for having lots of keywords. All things being equal, images with more keywords appear lower in search results at DT. When submitting there, I usually delete a few of my less important keywords. I think it helps.
I know that DT allows for a maximum of 75 keywords. Could you please tell me what will be the maximum keywords to have based on your experience ? Thanks !

never heard of that penalization for folks with lots of keywords, they mentioned a while ago that short titles do help

Thanks for posting .  I didn't know about the short titles.  This is counter to what you hear about SEO,  where more descriptive (therefore often  longer) titles are recommended.

Yeah, and the titles don't even have to make sense. Just put the 5 most important words in the title, description and also in the keywords and that will boost it in the search. Judging by the latest uploads that include many obviously incorrect keywords the reviewers don't even look at any text so anything goes through.

Same here. Good sales for the last 4-5 months, BME almost every month.
And, February sales will be ~50% of January.

I think dreamstime takes quite a lot of time to get sales started. I joined in mid last year and have been uploading since then. I started to get sales only in jan 14.

It doesn't matter how many new images I get accepted, it makes no difference to my pathetic sales. DT are absolutely dire and no way above IS in the list of top sellers. IS sell me waaaaaaaaaay more images.

Server lag. They know about it. It's been going on for a few days. Some of the stats are right but are not updating.
