Last half of May has really picked up for me. Had a TERRIBLE run of subs for first half, but now I'd say its back to normal - usual sales, usual mix of subs and credits.

So far I have to say I think the level increase hasn't affected things too badly, and it has given a noticeable bump in royalties

Something certainly changed.  And it hasn't been a good change for me.  After a monster month in April my May has been abysmal -- SEVEN total sales and six of them were subs.

Maybe the search?  Maybe the levels?  Maybe ... maybe.   ???

it looks like May will go down on 5 or 6 position in my earning raiting ... In April DT was second after Shutter . Only 29 pictures sold ( portfolio - 1145  photo and vector)

Sales are good here, lot's of high credit sales and a few TIFF, rarely any subs.
It's those bloody incompetent reviewers I'm losing patience with  >:(
Rejecting work that is already the most popular on SS and selling daily!

"Search engine changes" are performed periodically, more often than you think, just to give everyone a fair chance to sell pictures. The exposure is fair, but we cannot actually buy the pictures in behalf of our buyers. It really depends on your portfolio.

Please comment about sales and trends in the specific threads at the end of each month.

This thread will be closed.

I actually thought they were closing shop. after 5/6 steller years.  Horrible.

I'm not uploading anymore, just in case SS offers exclusivity. Or if IS sales keep on rising the way they do in the last 3 weeks.

Very interesting in that after uploading about 2500 images, my sales were always flat for 5 years.  Over the last three months my income has trippled from about $100 a month to roughly $300 a month.  I don't know it it's temporary due to algorithm tweaks, purging of non selling images, acceptance rate (high 80's, mostly due to that automated keyword checker that rejects your images as too similar) or any combination of the three.  Certainly HOPE it lasts but I don't EXPECT it too.
