Is Fotolia Tanking for anyone else?

I was making like $800 a month there, then it dropped to $600 and now I have made $18.00 so far this month!  What is going on?

Anyone else finding the same thing?  Help!!

I am down this month as well. About 60% down to be exact from last month!  Now I am wondering why as well?

Stable for me, but I think Lisa has had a 90% drop last month as well.

On my way to worst month year to date as well. Not a big seller there but also on route for a drop of 80% from last month. Enough people experiencing a sharp decline to raise one's eyebrows about I think  :o

Fotolia is in a slow decline for a  long time for me. But I didn't experienced a significant drop it's a slow and steady decline about a few percents every month.
May I ask if you have any exclusive files? They may changed the sort order/ranking for these ones.

Nice to see you back Melissa :)  ... for those who don't know, check out her user ID# .. the 12th user on the site.

Anyhow, there have been a few people discussion a drop in fotolia income.  It seems Fotolia has taken some people for a real roller coaster ride.  My earnings have been pretty stable luckily, I've been uploading a lot as well however (if that helps at all).

quite stable for me for last couple of months, but my overall rank is around 2000, so not that big performer for me...uploading regularly on the other hand...

Yes. Since January 2011.

However, new files are selling again lately.
That may partly explain lower sales on older files.

I was thinking about starting a thread for the opposite reason, to ask if the emeralds that experienced a drop have gone back up a bit.   I'm about 70% up from the first 10 days of September.   It's been too consistant now to be just good luck so with what you are all are saying I'm guessing that there has been another seach change.
It's great to finally be one of the lucky ones.
Will be interested to see what Lisa has to say as her trend seems to have mirrored mine.

My earnings have been in a steep decline for months now.  Still can't work out why some people are being hit so hard by them while others are doing OK.
I can think of a few conspiracy theories but it would be nice to know why some of us have been so severely punished by them.  Did I miss the email that they are selectively destroying some contributors earnings :)

$800 a per month???  :o I found your Dreamstime profile. Do you have the same amount of images on Fotolia or more? $800 is amazing for just one site! And I can understand the disappointment with a drop like that! Hope it gets back to normal for you soon.

wow.. yeah.. that's only 10% of what it once was.  Take a look at last month's earnings thread and I think you'll find some company

Particularly this post from sharpshot
this one from LisaFX
and this one from OM

Thanks Leaf!  I am always around here I just don't post much  :)   

Here is my port on Fotolia: http://us.fotolia.com/p/4364

I think I may have to start uploading to Fotolia again to see if that helps out.

My Fotolia Port has 2048 images in it and my Dreamstime Port has 2136 images in it.  So not that big of a difference!  My Shutterstock on the hand has 3896 images in it!   :)

Thanks for portfolio-link, really no offense but I think you have been pretty lucky to make 800,- with a non-exclusive portfolio of this size and content at Fotolia. Hope you will get back to your old figures pretty soon!

Good isolations and a commercial port I would say.

No thing as constant luck in stock sales. With her sales I will rather say, learn from someone who clearly knows what the market wants. Think your remark is rather arrogant in the face is what clearly is superior market knowledge.

Melissa's  port differs 120% from mine. That is what makes stock so great. The spectrum is so enormously wide that there are space with thousands of different styles. Great job Melissa, hope your images will get there place back in your market industry sector soon.

PS How about a link to your port grp?

Didn't want offend anyone that is a matter of fact maybe it's a language problem I'm not a native speaker.
Dreamstime perfomance is in line what I would expect, Fotolia isn't from my knowledge I would say this the other way around too ( If I would expect more).
It's a great portfolio but it's not the only one!
An exclusive portfolio on Fotolia like this would make much much more than 800,- , but for a non-exclusive the performance was much more than I would expect that's all.

Just shows you don't know what you're talking about.  No offence :)
