Wow! Now you do realize having your mother buy one to stick on the fridge does not count right?

J/K. Good job.

If your feeling generous can you let us know how the image is performing in search? Or how your site in general has done? Also your images are very iconic/useful so I don't think the theme is 100% of the success either.

The image sold earlier today is actually one of my best selling sets of "stamps" on other sites. It has been indexed by Google for a couple years. For my SY site, I reconfigured the layout and colors enough that Google sees it as a different image. It currently sits right beside the previous version at Shutterstock when doing a Google image search.

Overall traffic from Google is getting better all the time. Seems most of my images are now indexed.

Another one for the encouragement department - just had our first sale.

http://www.picturemojo.co.nz/image/auckland-skyline-new-zealand-twilight-dramatic-sky/ went for a whole US$2.50!

Probably a Google image search, and the results there are very encouraging, ranking is a lot better than it was with our Photoshelter site.

Looks like Leo hit on the right approach with the network backlinks - great work!

Finally, a spammy backlink directory web-ring reciprocal connection approach that is white-hat and welcome! :D

This morning I woke up to this sale being in my in-box:

http://www.clipartillustrations.com/image/factory-farm-cow-rbgh-fueled-2/

Large - $20.

My first thought was "This one??" I never sell this one.

Had two sales (3 files) today within 3 minutes of each other. I have the Paypal app on my phone with instant notifications, it's nice to see the cash roll in!  ;D

It's been a great month, I have surpassed by best month ever at Dreamstime with my SY revenue.

Hi guys, I thought I would jump in and say a big thank you to Leo for getting this off the ground!

For those of you that don't know I did some beta testing for Leo on a super early version of what has turned into Symbiostock, my first sale was way back in March 2012. My site atstockillustartion.com is still running on that much cruder version of the software, last month it still made me more than Bigstockphoto, Yaymicro, Graphiclefovers, Vectorstock or any of the other small sites. That was with no promotion at all and without the new networking features, just uploading like on any of the agency sites.

I have just hired Leo to get me up to date with latest version and can't wait to see the results!
