Hello!

I'm interested about how are you uploading a finished set when you are done? For example, you have 100 image from a post-processed shooting. Do you upload all of them right away, or you rotate the files, and just upload a bunch of them every week? Does it really matter?

Thanks!

I process 20 at a time if I do something stupid or the site crashes etc. I don't waste much time. But I'm not that productive so would rarely have 100 images from a shoot worth uploading. (Some might say I rarely have any images worth uploading)

It makes sense not to upload them all at once, if they are similar, a buyer(s) might need one of them at a given time, say they see it in the fresh section, but they don't need all of them, so the rest will probably be buried cause of no immediate downloads. If you upload them with some time apart every photo will have a equal chance to be the one that sells and rises in the search. In theory.

I personally think the maybe someone will see something new theory is just wishful thinking. But I still add "copy space" in the keywords, even though evidence says, the buyers don't search that.

There are so many superstitions and theories or maybe tricks how do get more sales. 50 keywords, double keywords, spammed keywords? Add files on Saturday so they are new on Monday or Tuesday. Do bigger images really get more sales? Some still think that 1,000 images will make more than 100 selected best images, because more images = more money.

I think that if I upload while standing on one leg, sipping my diet Coke, I'll get better sales. This is an actual point, prove I'm wrong?

We don't really know if rolling uploads, over say weeks or months, makes any difference to future downloads. So do what you like, but don't expect magic or tricks to actually make a difference.

Most tricks and superstistions are irrelevant because buyers find what they need and search for more than anything else, and don't just discover things because they are new. That used to be true, but now new is 1 million images a week. How much can the new placement do and how long does it last? Minutes?  ;)

Does anyone ever think, maybe I didn't upload the photo that some would have needed, so they couldn't see it and I missed a sale? No one gets many downloads of images that are still on your hard drive. None that I know of?

I would say the main advantage to stretching the set to over a period of time would be, not getting rejections for similar images. So have at it, the choice is yours.

Actually, half a glass of wine or beer helps a lot sometimes.
It works better than coffee, guess that stimulates fantasy.
No proven facts or sales to support my theory though...

sounds like we need a study to determine whether beer or wine is more successful (or maybe single malts)
