I do primarily vectors so our experiences may differ. However I find, especially lately, that my new submissions sell well at SS and my new submissions are not selling elsewhere. I have decent sales at other agencies but it is all files that are 6-12 months old or older.

I think that is quite universal for most ports Dave. SS is very fast on new submissions, probably due to their sort order.

Lately I'm finding that new files take off as quick at fotolia as they do at SS

Lucky. My sales all but stopped there.  :'(

It only is really new images that sell. Probably about 7 out of 10 of my sales are images uploaded this year.

I've found the same.  Although my sales at FT have declined dramatically over the past year, the files that ARE selling are mostly newer ones.

Read everything Lisa, Sean, Sue, etc tell you 3x and then copy and paste it on your monitor screen. They have BTDT and will tell you exactly how it is.  I'd much rather get their feedback here than spend umpteen hours shooting and uploading useless stuff only to get it rejected.

Lisa/Fotografer: that will explain a lot, as I am really struggling to get much approved at FT of late.

Is it really necessary, today, to include "background white", "isolated" etc in the keywords?  I thought the agencies were, by now, recognizing a white background automatically i.e. using software, as a routine feature of search.

Doubt it, as not everything with a white (or majority white color) background is necessarily isolated.

   Until now my sales are 73% on SS this month. And not because SS is selling like crazy for me, but because the others are selling almost nothing. One year in MS and really tired to see how the sales are not improving even if I upload files. Seems that only SS does a good job for me and has picked a growing trend.
