  I'm  taking  my  time  with  this  site.  My  first  upload  was  8  pics  -  3  were  accepted  (i  did  overlooj  a  name  brand  on  one  -  my  fault).  My  next  upload  was  10  and  2  were  accepted  and  the  rest  are  waiting  to  be  reviewed.
  Hopefully  this  slow  approach  will  put  only  my  best  on  site.

Starting out slow or fast will not make a difference in the most important things- 'Sales' on this site thus just load up and move on to a company that does sell. My grand daddy told me long time ago- "The secret to catching big fish is to fish where the big fish are" So put your efforts in the Top and Middle Tier before you worry about a little fish like this one...

Very good advice!

     Have  a  small  port  at  Fot,123RF,Big,Can  and  aiting  on  Veer  (6  of  the  top  9)  with  very  little  results.  Can't  hurt  to  try  something  different.

Sorry to be harsh but if you can't get stuff accepted on pixmac it's time to look for other things to do with your camera. Just being honest. If it's income you are after that you are micromanaging minutia and needing to tell people about it is indicative that you may do better in an hourly job. Just a reality check here.

When looking at the sites on the right, it seems you are working from the bottom up.  Why not try working from the top down - you'll earn a LOT more money that way.  It won't hurt me if you 'try something different' but it will hurt your income.

My first tip would be, don't post here about every upload you do.  It's about as interesting to me as what you had for breakfast.  Spend your time getting in to SS and DT.  If you can take 15% commission, try istock.  Then there's alamy.  Stick with those until you have at least 1,000 images and regular payouts, then work down the list.  Forget the sites below the low earners in the earnings poll.

leaf  -  i'm  on  5  of  the  top  9  sites.  waiting  on  reviews  from  veer  and  DP.  no  luck  yet  on  IS  or  SS  but  still  trying.
Yes  stormchaser  i  do  have  images  accepted  on  pixmax.  A  few  but  then  with  health  and  time  restraints  i'm  in  no  hurry.
