Not sure what's happening with Pond5, but I've had four 4K sales this month... when I normally get about four 4K sales in a year! BME for sales as well... they seem to be a lot higher for the whole of 2018, and my item views are through the roof for the past couple of months.

I can only assume they changed the search criteria or something, as I can't see them doubling their actual customers overnight. So my gain is probably someone else's loss, but I'm not going to complain too much... I'm sure things will level out when they next alter the search engine!

Almost $200 in extended license revenue this month as well, on top of sales. Hope it continues... unlikely though!

Google bots were the cause of high views for the last few weeks. The probably fixed it now, because it went back to normal.

Ah ok. Still... it was very kind of these Google Bots to purchase so many of my items.

Yeah, me too. My best ever month from 2012 to 2017 was $389. My average for 2018 is $595, and I've made $909 already this month... with a week to go!

I've also seen huuuuge jump in views, and was puzzled by it. As this "views" went up, sales went down  :o
But i fear not :)

I get sporadic sales here and there, not great, but not dead either.

But Pond5 has been advertising a lot. Its ads are following me around the internet. Initially it only showed my own contents because I was working on them. Now it shows other people's clips as well. Hope the advertisements bring good results soon.

I think Im on to something, I am happy with my sales but I expected more growth so I checked how my files look from the buyer point of view and found out that hundreds of my clips are labeled as editorial when they are super hardcore solid commercial clips. Across all other platforms and to any standard known to mankind.

I think this effects my sales.

Anyone else having the same issue?

Im a big fan of P5 and hope they can fix this.

Well, they probably hired newbie currators that cannot distinguish between commercial and editorial files.
