compared to last week yes, otherwise, not so much compared to the time prior to the latest best match change and the change in the search bar. I think it will be almost what it was before they changed it.

nope.... slowest month this year for me.  However, last months I had most downloads but lowest earnings this year.  I think more people are buying smaller sizes.

A definite uptick this week, a huge spike yesterday, but overall this month is down about 20%.

Anyone looked at the Alexa numbers for iStock for the last few days?

Huge drop in views.  Huge.  Same for SS.

Dunno if it's a one-off or what.........

I was looking at that the other day as well. My sales are off significantly on both of these sites, and was I exploring it. I don't see a drop, though - I see a rise. The biggest rise is FT.

I was very surprised that the FT curve didn't show a drastic traffic drop from the June 14-16. The fact that they weren't online doesn't seem to register on Alexa. According to Alexa their traffic actually increased, which has me questioning the reliability of their data.

My sales are down too at SS. At IS my sales continue to be down  a second month in a row. Maybe slightly better than May, I do not know yet.

This might signify that they only record the attempt and not the success of trying to access a site.  There were probably many people attempting (over and over again) to reach Fotolia (unsuccessfully).

Yesterday was my best day this year on istock.  I beat this figure a few times at the end of last year but this year I have had the same amount of downloads once but have never beaten it.

Very disappointing month. I am not having fun at iStock these days.

3 days no sales.  I know this is the start of a low season, and sales have slowed down for me everywhere, but it is disappointing.

Regards,
Adelaide
