I brought CanStockPhoto up to date with the past 1/2 year's images about 2-3 days ago and they don't have any views yet. They are pretty slow in general although an EL once in a while makes up for it. Apart from that, it's run by a very nice and responsive guy and the upload and MRF attribution works like a charm. The site has always been the best programmed one around. I guess they update their keyword DB about every week, as it is very resource-intensive. Dreamstime takes about 3 days to index new images into the keywords DB.

Thanks for the reply, being a newbie to micro stock it's nice to know how these things work..

I guess never, since the sales are so low (and I have also mostly 0 views). It looks like the search works much better at partner sites, that make up most of my earnings (if you can call 1% of SS earnings, earnings;)

After a long period without any sale, made 2 this month , and the fact is: the images sold so far have 1, 4, 13 views max. Images with many views still at 0. Images sold are almost "old files".

Some days ago I think about it. Could be keywords? Or just images it self ? db update?

Anyways, still putting faith on it.

It's easy to check. Take a set of 3 distinctive keywords from 1 image of your recent upload and do a search. On DT, it takes exactly 3 days (make sure to sort by relevance/descending and not by downloads/descending). I didn't check on CanStockPhoto yet. What's more, it's not because an image is addressed by the keywords DB that it will get views immediately, certainly not at CanStockPhoto.

none of my 70 images have had any view. Have submitted ticket seeing what is going on. Seems like a waste of time eventhough their approval rate is practically 100%.

Update : batch uploaded 17 Nov has mostly 0 views and  about 1/3 has 2 views.
One from 2005 has 2500 views but no sales. I made the mistake to put "teen" in the title. Sigh. I should delete that old crap done with a 3MP P&S.
