That's all I have to say, people here are giving them lots of credit, but I'm going to say it.
Pond5, Shutterstock and Videohive are far better performers for me personally.

Not sure why or how you guys are doing it there? (I'm using the same keywords from Shutterstock / Video / P5)

In Adobe the order is the most important factor. Try to use in first 5-7 places the most relevant and important keywords.

For me Pond5 and Shutterstock are well above Adobe in the latests months. I have maybe 1.5x more content because editorial but monthly revenue is 2 or 3 times more with the first two.

I have always thought how stupid this fact is for a tech company like Adobe. They are much larger than Pond5 and Shutterstock yet they have the worst contributor pages and they keep keyword manual rankings. I think that their competition is well above this nonsense. At the end of the day what is important is what buyers consider the most important and relevant keywords for a clip not contributors. We are at the gates of 2020, wake up Adobe.

Well I've only been uploading to AS for the past couple of weeks and there is no difference in earnings, dare I even say worse then before. AS is and looks like it will always be a low seller, for me anyway.
Shutterstock is also showing it's worst performance (again in my case) so not much left anymore.
Time to focus on other projects and leave Micro behind.

Yes, its always the contributor's fault@adobe

You got 30000 videos? "ohh, that's why you're not selling, its too much, its over-saturation, try eliminating some videos for a cleaner portfolio.

My video clips also sell very few at Adobe, comparing to P5 and SS. It's also true that my port is a lot smaller and I joined Adobe a lot later after P5 and SS.
