 here are  approximate results.

 SS was my best earner  and a BME

 IS took the second  place with BME

 FT is in the third place with a slight drop comparing to last month

 StockXpert  is in the forth place with some significant drop comparing to last month(I wonder why as everyone else seems to be doing better,never mind:)

DT is in the fifth place as always but  a slight increase resulting in a BME

BME overall. Total earnings doubled from Nov mostly due to IS & SS. IS has been impressive. SS rocked. BigStock dropped in half. DT was doing nicely with downloads daily and then downloads literally stopped in Nov. SV surprised with some downloads. StockXpert was really disappointing. Albumo is a ghostown.

Given that SS, IS and FT made over 80% of my earnings I'm beginning to think the effort vs return for the rest of these sites is a waste of time.

SS   44.12% (1st month)
IS   30.15% (+50%, BME)
FT   8.39% (BME)
SV   5.54% (BME)
123RF   4.07% (downloads up, $$$ down)
BigStock   3.47%
DT   2.31%
LO   1.39%
StockXpert   0.58%
AB   0.00%

EDIT: Looking back at some of the numbers, what the heck happened with DT? Seems like it has either dropped like a rock or become a low earner for a lot of people.

What happened to DT?  Perhaps the subscription effect is beginning to be noticeable now that the purchasers have used all their credits and switching to Sub.

Btw, I have turned off subscription option at SV. Why to be content with $.30, when they pretend to be kind of a midstock site ?

Overall earnings are 22% above Oct, making my third best month.

BME at StockXpert (third in a row, with over 30% more than Oct and marginal impact from subs sales - I love StockXpert!).  Stable earnings in IS and FT, slight increase in DT and BigStock. 

Among my low earners, BME also at 123RF.  A bit deceptive in Scanstock, as it had been slowly increasing in the past months.  CanStockPhoto went down more with mere 3 subs sales.  Two good sales in FP, plus a 3rd I don't compute here as RM.  Two sales in SPM - maybe the site is starting to work?  Also two sales in Gecko, one in Zymm, none in Albumo nor Snap.

Regards,
Adelaide

Things have been pretty flat or down for me since May of this year. Partly my fault for not uploading anything for six months and then starting to upload again in September. I'm only on three sites:

IS = 42% of downloads
SS = 28% of downloads
DT = 30% of downloads

Dreamstime had a really good month for me, it looked like it would almost catch IS in the last week of the month, probably because it is more geared toward the European market and it wasn't a holiday over there.

It also points out that these three all have some type of "staleness" factor in the search engine. Older images keep getting fewer and fewer downloads which I don't really think is fair since many of the images I take are more timeless and not always on the cutting edge of what is hip... So, keep the uploads going to keep your portfolio "fresh" and don't take a six month hiatus like I did.
