I have about 7 other sites I post to and nothing to amazing as far as earnings go yet. However I joined SS about 10 days ago and I have 25 downloads with only 22 pictures online! WoW is this normal?? I sure hope so. Now I am giving more energy to SS. :o

Yes it is normal but unfortuately it does reduce f you dont keep submitting.  The two main search options are newest and most popular, so new photos get instant exposure.

Having said that, most popular has been change from most downloads (which favours photos that have been up for ages) to DL/days.   

Despite the low payout, the number of DL makes up for it and is normally in peoples top 2 sites.

I love SS, I got an image under the top 50 of the week, the first time for me!! Place 21 exactly! ;D
Maybe thats why it is my best earning day on SS ever. I guess top 50 images are good for advertism..

congrats on the image in the top 50 :)

Yeah, new pictures all get dl'd on SS. But only for a while. Also you'll notice that old pictures, even the best-sellers get stale after a while. SS has probably the shortest lifespan on pictures of any site.

I get a ratio of about 5-10 dl's per month for a newly uploaded picture. After half a year, not counting about 10% of my best shots this drops down to about 0.5 dl per month. That's a 10-fold drop.

You guys? How's it?
