My ranking as of now is 1,220th with 9,808 photos in my Adobe Stock portfolio.  Last week was at about the same ranking too.  My lifetime ranking is around 1,600th.  So, I made a progress after adding 3,000 AI generated photos since last September or so.  I think many with higher ranking have a lot less photos/images on their portfolio than I do.

You do not have a rank when your ranking is higher than a certain number. I think it was 40.000.





I still do not really understanding how ranking works.
I have a slightly worse weekly ranking than blvdone, but more downloads, so download number does not seem to be the (only) factor. Maybe revenue?

Alright, then that's explains why I can't see my ranking.

Hey blvdone,

since the current ranking is somewhat behind schedule (this is not a real-time display), it would be more meaningful to post these values at the weekend.
Less tends to happen at the weekend and the weekdays are usually included in the ranking on Sunday, which only shows "movement" every 1-2 days.

Last week I had:
- 149DL, position 3,260
- 38k assets - of which approx. 4k videos, 7k AI images, 27k photos (mainly backgrounds and textures that almost dont sell)

Have a sunny day@all,
Michael

Do you also sell videos?  I think the ranking is solely based on image sales.

That's true, but my last week's rank and this week's rank is about the same.

It would be nice if we managed to compile our rankings and try to make a sense out of it. I have attached my current ranking. But I also agree that it is more relevant towards the end of the week. Thet is why I am also giving last week's stats

At the end of last week, these were my numbers:
Weekly Rank 3,010
Weekly Downloads/Revenue 154/$119
Portfolio Size 19.500 assets (mostly images, AI and non-AI; only ~200 videos and ~300 vectors)

The "ranking" seems to be  based on a fixed time every day (seems to update 1x per day). Not sure what time (I think it might be 12:00 a.m. PST).

It's calculated on your downloads at "that" specific point in time. So for people who have "more" downloads and "lower" ranking - it just means you had more downloads "after" the ranking was calculated.

It's true, it updates once a day. I think it reflects your position in the respective week (Mon-Sun), not in the last 7 calendar days. And I base this assumption on the fact that on Monday morning, until you get your first download, the weekly ranking will not be displayed at all. After your first download occurs, it just resumes Sunday's ranking, and then updates during the day.
LE: And this behaviour only occurs on Monday, no other day. Though it's strange and confusing that they chose to take last week's ranking as the starting point in the new week, instead of reseting it in the first day.

The other thing is the weekly ranking is for that particular week, so a week with major holidays might have a lot less downloads required for a higher ranking. based on my not scientific looking at it over the last year sales on Adobe have been going up faster than my own sales which are going up. I haven't followed the path of the AI though or uploaded all that many images.

Yes, i sell both, but look, another update for today and the position is not moving, no idea.

Oh nice!!  It's very rare for me to have high price image sale on Adobe Stock.  Maybe once or twice a sale over $10/photo.

Yes it's not completely clear the timing and the way in wich numbers are calculated, by the way in general terms it's useful to understand your own trend
Sorry I don't remember how to attach the screenshot, I'm actually number 2980 this week with 31 downloads (around 27 USD, but it doesn't count for position.... I think)

This ranking system is pretty meaningless for video contributors. It's obvious to me when I see people sharing screenshots of their rank on Discord that it is solely based on number of downloads not earnings.

You're right - I've been observing this for a while now - the rank rises if you have a lot of downloads in a week, but with few but high downloads the rank still falls.

So it seems to be all about the number of downloads without average selling prices (RpD) - which is particularly meaningless for video sellers and high-priced sales.

At the moment I keep bouncing between 3100 and 5200. 4000 files.

Hope to move further up again soon, this is frustrating. But for a port this size it is probably ok.

I hate to ask, because someone will think the rank numbers actually matter.

But, why do you hope to move further up? Rank means nothing, except for your own personal information, how you are doing, compared to others. If you are making money, and happy with what you do and earn, it doesn't matter what some irrelevant number says.

My rank goes up during the holiday season, down in January, back up in April. My earnings, as in money that goes into the bank, is all that counts.

Rank is apparently, number of downloads, not earnings.
