Just checked my last two hundred uploads, dating back to January 27th.  21 sales, so around 10% of them have sold. 

I know it's hard to make comparisons, but is that less than, about the same as or more than you would have expected? To me it sounds low, especially for an emerald with a proven track record.

I looked at what you uploaded to IS and if I counted right, for the first page (sorted by age which goes back to Jan 28th) you had 93 sales.

It seems very low.  I was actually quite surprised more of them hadn't sold on FT.  But my sales there overall have taken a hit lately.  Not long ago they were the fastest growing site for me. 

I think their prior default search had emeralds and above heavily weighted toward the front, but maybe it's not like that anymore. 

I don't keep up with the best match changes at all the sites.  Only reason I notice the ones at IS is because the drops are so severe from day to day and week to week.  If it was gradual I wouldn't notice there either.

I do!  I always monitor the best match changes at the major sites, you have to, the search is the heart of the business. An agency stand or fall with their best match, simple as that.

best.

I'm seeing similar results to the rest of you.  March this year was about 40% of March last year and new uploads don't get a look in.  Fotolia had consistently been my highest earner for the last couple of years but now it has dropped to 4th position!!

it's not you, it's them.  New images just have a really hard time selling at Fotolia.

Thank you. Good to know there is not some thing wrong with my images.
Do they know that? They should fix it.
