How vulnerable is your income? How many sites bring in more than 10% of your total income?

With sites going high-wire with commission cuts, etc., how vulnerable are you if one of your top income sites act up or should close down?

The big 4 here, but Fotolia is exactly 10% so if things drop much worse I will be down to 3 that qualify.

Great spread then! About the safest one can get.  ;)

I would judge 1 and 2 as high risk, unless you have a fair bundle just below 10% to back those up.

My stuff only sells on SS and I have hit my roof there as well. I need to come up with better stuff, because my DLs have stagnated for the last 3 months. Although I am almost sure our portfolios are rotated and has something to do with it as well. I dont have any style nor do I submit holiday stuff. So my sales are always the same.

SS and IS for me. DT is in third place generally but hasn't been solidly above 10% since early this year. I'm not on FT (at their choosing, not mine).

Pocketstock won't be helping spread my risk - it's my lowest earner at 31 cents lifetime earnings :)

SS 34% (up from 33% in 2011)
DT 12% (same as 2011)
IS 11% (down from 18% in 2011)

Fotolia was 14% of my income and my #3 earner last year.  This year, it dropped to a measly 4% and placed 8th.   :o 

Watching my micro income drop through the floor at some of the sites and an overall micro drop of 12% from last year, I'm now diversifying my portfolio to include POD and RM outlets in order to not be dependent on the micros anymore.  Last year, micro accounted for 91% of my income...this year, in large part thanks to diversification, it's down to 78% with RM coming in at 15% and POD at 7% (up from last year's 6% and 2% respectively).

I voted one, because it's just 1 usually (SS)

Some months, 2 or 3 (FT and/or IS), but it's happening rarely lately

For me it's SS, 123, DP, and PD.  Of course, SS is way ahead of the rest.

Four Agencies

SS 35%
IS+PP 23%
FT 19%
DT 10%

123 6%

SS = 32.3%
FT = 21.1%
DT = 13.2%
IS = 12.8%
CanStockPhoto = 5.2%
BigStock = 4.9%
123 = 4.4%
DP = 4.4%

But these figures are all-time. 

If I crunched the numbers for the past year, I think FT would each come down a few percentage points each, and BigStock, DP and 123 would be closer to 10%.
