You know, 13 images of over 11 million images isn't very much. You might sell something today, or never sell anything. Your guess is as good as anybody's.

My best advice is to start shooting and uploading, the sales will come eventually, this is a time and numbers game!

I wouldn't say everything depends on luck, although that is an element (primarily on whether an image gets good placement in default search results). Image quality, variety and having subjects that are useful (and thus in demand) are the biggies. Without seeing your files it's impossible to say whether they're of subjects that might sell once or twice a year, or whether you should expect more sales volume.

I still don't have all my images up at 123rf (I returned to being an independent in June after 3 years as an iStock exclusive) but I get regular daily sales, although at nothing like the volume of SS.

The same here. I was with them in the beginning and bailed out. I just resent 1500 or so to test them and see whats up. Been about a month. Doing Fairly well But nothing Like SS also. Well see. I have been with 29 sites since 2004. Did pretty good but......i would like to have back all that time uploading to the clunkers because they got "Hot" for a few Months. Nowdays I have no More than 5 Plus 5 footage and effects sites. Which are doing Very well. Looking Back I should have got heavily into footage.

It's most about quality and quantity. But with 13 images it's also much about luck. When you have more images it's less about luck and more about quality and quantity. And time.
