My sales in the last two years on Adobe\Fotolia did not change much (flat line), but I increased the portfolio size over 3000 files...

Show us ur adobe portfolio for us to better answer your question. Quessing I would say your adding images that are over flooded already.  As you know volume no longer insures more money.

Haha! I earned twice as much with Oleg and the old FT. People still uploading thousands what are they really expecting?? some good fairy coming down with a magic stick and swing the algorithm their way. Forget it, its not going to happen!

Its quite clear that Adobe is treating FT like some side-kick, something to do for some staff allday long!

I sincerely hope they keep FT and the Ft interface!

I was selling better before, when it was just Fotolia.
There were a lot of video sales and a lot of stuff for Europe.
I am seeing 50% fewer videos today and my sales are 80% for America. Sales to Europe almost do not even exist. Curious?!?! :-\
Now I keep a reasonable average, $ 200, before with Fotolia my average haw was around $ 300.
And I keep uploading some more images, but without despair.
I try to upload only good pictures. I believe that quantity of the same thing will not make much of a difference.
Overall the competition is great and I appreciate the little I still get.

I was doing much better, when there was only Fotolia, too. I think they just dumped EU market and focused on US.

My overall ranking dropped but my sales have slowly and regulary grown during the past two years.

Some days are now greater than SS.

Well I keep polishing that turd but it never comes up shiny.

FT were pretty poor (for me) and while it increased greatly when Adobe took over gradually went back to poor returns inside 6 months.

For me Ft/Adobe is the only agency that increased over the past two years.  They've pretty much died this month but were doing great before that - not as much as SS but heading in the right direction whereas all the others constantly go down.

Something must be up with that, I'm getting more sales. I even thought about starting to illustrate for stock again mostly because of the adobe sales on my rather shabby illustrating.

Over 12k video clips on Adobe, but SS with 13k still beats the crap out of them...  :o

The last 4 months I'm seeing a small upward trend nothing dramatic but consistent. My ranking is pretty much the same so I guess thats whats happening generally. But of course individuals will have different experiences and those who think the world revolves around them will continue to make sweeping generalisations.

I am selling 20% more but I can barely maintain my rank. This means that there are people ahead of me seeing also about 20% improvement.

You have some great content, looking at the newest 1000 photos it appears to be from maybe 7-10 shoots, lots of very similar content. Maybe that's why you've flat lined, competing with yourself and others in crowded areas.   Also bare in mind a lot of people have gone backwards a long way in the last few years with ever growing competition so flat lining may actually relatively be good performance

Have you had a different experience at other agencies?
