Quite impressive numbers! How big is your portfolio, if you don't mind me asking?

I can definitely see Adobe is growing. We need that one agency that treat contributors fair and that one will see the most growth. I feel at the moment a lot of agencies are playing with contributors share of the revenue in making silly deals like unlimited downloads for x amount.

To me it is the opposite, not only because of the the pure translation from german to english.
Even if it works and i do a search in english, many pictures doesn't show up at the first or second result page.
It doesn't happen with every picture, but still.

In which language are you keywording?

Having a lot of downloads is not all ... the most important number is the RPD! And this number is on the way down since AS is in the market!!!

... much more than the number of sales are growing for only few contributors!

Both RPD and no of downloads don't mean much on their own. Its multiplying the two that gives the important stat. Not sure anyone knows how many gainers/losers there are.

lol Their 2 steps authentification  is piece of sh..t. I cannot absolutely change phone number, they refuse e-mail which exisy already 8 years! I never selected this type of authentification. They did this to not to pay?
p.s. they always , already several weeks send code by mail when it is already expired.

Actually the only thing that matters is money. Once I've sent off a photo, and I have no control, it's on some sites or a single site, the RPD or number of downloads doesn't matter. How much I make is what counts.

You should like Alamy best if you are saying RPD is the most important number? I like SS because it's the most downloads and the most money. But AS is growing, which I believe was the OPS original point?

Statistics don't put food on the table and they don't buy me a nice bottle of Single Malt Scotch. Money does!

The most important number is how much did I earn last month and from what agency.

Out of the 6 agencies that I contribute to, Adobe is currently my best earner at an average of 31.1% of my total earnings.  Shutterstock is 29.9% and Getty/iStock is 26.7%.  The remaining 3 agencies...Dreamstime, 123RF, and Alamy are 3.1%, 1.3% and 8% respectively.  However, I have yet to see any money from Alamy...due to the horrendously long lag between earning and "clearing" of sales.  But I am finally going to get a payout this coming month.

I don't normally keep track of RPD, but for September, Adobe was the winner at 1.19.
