Hello Guys!
For the past 2 years I've uploaded my content into Alamy but never attatched the model releases or set the keywords...

So I had around 10k images waiting for this process... However when I login in the past days I've noticed that the great majority of these images where set as:

"On sale - add more details to improve sales" and all I had to do was seting the Attributes tab...

The others were, as expected in:

"Images not on sale - please keyword"

The strange here is that considering the same batch, some photos were On Sale and the others don't.

Do you know how this happen?
Many thanks in advance.

Best regards

If it's saying add more details then something is incomplete in your image keywords or attributes. 

Are your essential keywords and comprehensive keywords completed?

Are your image attributes completed?  If not then you'll not get any sales until they are.

As for me I just got another nice fat sale yesterday and I usually get a few each month making more money than all the other agencies.

I got a $400 sale only the other month  :-*

I also  looked at one of your images in Shutterstock

http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-447246100/stock-photo-business-financial-success-and-making-money-concept-stacks-of-us-dollar-banknotes-with-pencil.html?src=sABNOceuFv5eGM_T0clZSg-1-0

 america, american, bank, banking, banknotes, bill, business, cash, closeup, currency, debt, dollar, estate, fifty, finance, five, home, house, hundred, investment, isolated, money, notes, one, paper, saving, stack, states, ten, twenty, united, us, usa, wealth, white

Key words on Alamy need to include singular and plurals i.e. banknote banknotes
note notes

And if you are spamming your images with irrelevant keywords (home house - not in the image) then you are going to reduce your click through rate (CTR)

Having well produced images with good keywords improves your click rate in Alamy does a lot to help sales.

Your title is "Business, financial success and making money concept, stacks of 20 US dollar banknotes with pencil stationery"

Really? business? financial success? making money?

I just don't see any concept at all just a bunch of unrelated items thrown on a white background

You need to work on your titles and concepts as Alamy customers are not microstock customers.

Thank you for going through my port and making the suggestions. I will re-arrange all my keywords on Alamy and on shutterstock as well...
