Unfortunately, Adobe are at risk of being awarded the coveted Turd of the Month Award (November 2021) for me...

This month is currently performing at just 6.5% of my average monthly sales at Adobe (average over past 1.5 years) and we're half way through the month.

First 15 days of this month by far the best this year. If it keeps up with this pace it might be best month.

Same for me. Interesting how just between the people on the forum, we get such a difference.

For example.  ;D

Your style of images don't bode well for Adobe like they do on the more artistic companies.

Yes, Same Situation on my side too.
Sales are Low, I frequently Upload the vectors and illustration.

May be one of the Worst Month or May be one of Best Month (If my huge stock got selected in Free Collection).

Sales on Adobe have just about stopped for me.  Looks like less than a third of normal.

Adobe stock has given me zero sales for about a month now. Shutter is doing better than it was before, but Adobe has taken a huge plunge ever since this free stuff and regional sales started.

Two weeks of nothing, then a week of four sales (0.66, 0.40, 033, 0.33). At least better than nothing, but it's not much.  :-[

Hmmmmm... receiving $5 dollars for giving your work away for free to promote a multi billion dollar corporation... What could possibly go wrong?

Seriously folks... those who participated in this con get what you deserve, and the rest of us pay the price. I look at the free collection and it's a no brainer why sales are down. Why would anyone pay for content that is free?

Indeed, I have thought of joining. I might have earned more from it than I do now. But it didn't feel right. All those free photos aren't doing the market any good, even if you get paid for them.

On course for BME on Adobestock, but then again I stopped giving SS any new work (SS work at least a year older than on AS). in the 2-3000 dls/month on AS range

I think they reshuffled the order recently. At least that what I see from a small sample. But what do I know?

No agency is willing to make public how they determine in which order the possible hits on a search are being displayed.

Did a quick check on my best sellers there. They are still ranked high. I somethings believe the location plays into the search as well.

When changing the region for some countries I see that one of my best sellers, which was in the first three lines of photos, for all those countries, has dropped to the following lines on the first page:
26 Netherlands
15 USA
18 Great Brittain
22 Germany

Still first page, but still it hurts sales pretty badly actually. Buyers are lazy I guess. They almost never look further then the fifth line or so, let alone a next page. Unless they are looking for something really specific maybe. Otherwise placement is everything I think.

Oh well, it was fun as it lasted  8)

Cool stats on your by country. I would say UK, US are two countries that you really want to be high on the rank due to the amount of $$ spent on marketing.

When changing the region for some countries ... one of my best sellers ... has dropped  ...


That made me curious. I have an image that sells well this time of year and I checked its position for the countries you checked, plus a couple: Netherlands,  USA, UK, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Russia. It was in the same position for all countries.

I tried a different search (non-seasonal images) where I have several images that are generally high on the first page and there I did see a difference by country. The images were all shot in the US, but have very high positions in the other countries too - but which ones are higher varies, and although there were many of the same images showing up, the results were more varied that I'd have guessed. It did not seem that the country in which these were located (outdoor scenes) was the driving factor.

Other than recent sales are higher or lower and that drives position changes, I'm not sure what else could be at work.

My experience with Shutterstock. 
Last year I had made a few photos on economic topics to the Philippines, which had sold quite quickly. Since then I have regular sales to the Philippines of other topics, which was not the case before. The same experiment I have done with other small countries where I had hardly any sales before - with the same result - suddenly my pictures sell e.g. also to Nigeria.
So my guess is if you sell once a lot images in a country, the portfolio will rise in ranking for that country.

Excuse me, but I didn't understand your statement at all. Maybe it's because English is not my native language, but even with translation software I didn't understand it.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be your best month at AS, but the rest is unclear to me.
