Yes, again.-)

1. Ranking of images
Well, for Adobe it is clear: The first 30 days are the most important for getting a good or bad ranking of our photos. To maximize the chance for a good ranking we need:
accurate good keywords (max 49) and the keyword order (first weights most, second... and so on to 10th) AND best these first 10 keywords are used also in the title. (Just to break it down in short.)

A few month ago I got the information that Adobe wanted to change something:
(Sorry, I cannot remember well, but if I am not wrong, it was an email to the contributors?)
Because in the past NEW images got more weight and shown on the top, the best seller images got their competitors from these new images. That is it what Adobe wanted to change - if I remember right. They changed the system/algerhythm in that way, that the best seller appears on the top and the new images much later.

If that is right, then uploading new images could be a waist of time, especially if competing images (same motif/theme) are to many.
In this forum one or two mentioned that they still get good sales from old images, but nearly no sale from new images. Could be that the result?

Then all the good advices above about keywording and so on is for nothing, because it does not count anymore?

2. Portfolio Exposure:
As a normal contributor the exposure from Wirestock will be much bigger of course.
Just an extreme example/question:
If you have a portfolio from only around 500 images and no sales yet, should it than better to upload via Wirestock to get a bigger chance to sell anything. (We are not talking about quality of the image, just exposure/ranking)

3. Ranking of accounts/portfolio:
How much does it influence the ranking of images - beside the keywords and exposure? And which agencies known that they do rank accounts in which way ever?

4. First 30 days important for ranking ono all agencies? (and google?)
Adobe = 30 first days important for ranking. which other agencies could say the same? I guess Alamy is different, Pond5 told me it needs more than two month until the ranking is clear (footage AND photo). What do you think? What about DT, SS, DP, 123RF, iS?

Many questions again. Hopefully soon I will have learned more.
Thx in advance.

I don't know. What I do know for sure is that you're way overthinking this.
