9 / iStock SEO Testing‏
« on: October 28, 2014, 18:20 »
istock: "Hello there,

As noted in our October Newsletter we are actively working towards educating our contributor base on Search Engine Optimization and their content. We are reaching out to a number of our contributors to request for their participation in our Search Engine Optimization testing. Our plan is to adjust the titles and descriptions of 19,000 images from a number of our contributors to meet the testing requirements. You are one of those contributors we were hoping to have participate in this testing.

You can view our article SEO | Help Customers Find Your Images if you would like some additional information on what Search Engine Optimization can do for your images.

The purpose of this test is to understand what the ROI is for updating and optimizing asset titles and descriptions and to understand how description length plays a role in how ADPs (Asset Detail Pages) are ranked in search engines. The 19K assets were selected based on iStocks site analytics data based on visits coming from search, along with customer download behavior. Assuming this test provides the lift we are expecting, it will give us great information to help convince contributors that there is value in having them optimize their incoming / existing asset submissions. Our expectation is that the test will yield a more positive customer experience and increase their purchasing of your assets.

If you are happy to participate you dont need to respond to this email. We will just keep you on our testing list.

If you would like to request a full list of the images and/or videos from your portfolio we will be testing with please use this IMAGE LIST link. We will then send you a breakdown of the files we will be using for the test. Please understand we wont be able to remove specific images nor add any additional images. We will need you to contact us before November 4, 2014.

If you choose not to participate please respond to this email please use this OPT OUT link and we will immediately remove you from our test list.
We will need you to contact us before November 4, 2014. 

We would greatly appreciate your participation."

New Sites - General / hints for new sites to upload and sell
« on: August 05, 2014, 11:58 »
Iam looking for some "new" sites to upload after this summer (not in poll).
However this is a boring post.. I could need some notes of agencys i dont listed here already.
I looked at or used already:

 :-\ (i do not sell; looks unprofessional; does not look good at the moment)
 :-\ (i sell already (started); but stopped uploading, bad upload process)
 :D (i sell already (started); yeah the asian market is sure big)
 :D (i sell already (started); but stopped uploading, i will go on)
 :( (i do not sell; bad design, does not look good at the moment)
 :-\ ( i really dont know what iam thinking about them, not so good)
 ??? (i dont understand what they sell; only abstract images for print?)
 :o (i do not sell;)
 >:( ( not accepted my images)

Some of the list above i really like, but most of them i will never use.

At the moment all low earner at poll (not canstock, stocksy and pixta) i dont like to use.
And i think they will not get big players in the next years. Bad page design (why should someone go there twice?) and many other reasons.

14 / SS Image Zoom
« on: July 29, 2014, 16:06 »
I ask myself, why isnt a zoom (Image Zoom) at SS available?
I think all/most sites offer this option? is there some reason?

General Stock Discussion / small size: $0.20; full size: $4
« on: July 21, 2014, 06:06 »
I thought twice about the SS full resolution concept.
Many sites use low prices. Some are offering high prices. Would you join the mix?
Would you sell your pictures in small size for sell let's say 20 cents,
as long as a full resolution brings you at least $ 4 Commission each download?

New Sites - General / down?
« on: July 21, 2014, 05:12 »
Cant see their website for 2 days. off?

Online again.

Adobe Stock / member "blocked" without any message
« on: July 08, 2014, 08:09 »
A friend is "blocked" 4 days ago. Someone else, maybe a bug?
He didnt recieved any message or reason.
Whats going on at FT?

I uploaded this month 2000 images.
Will the sales go up in the next months (1-2 years) with this images?
Or down?

Because I have a feeling the older images will make fewer sales. Exception bestseller.
What do you think. Can I sit back and relax me now?  ;)

19 / PP May started
« on: June 18, 2014, 20:45 »
Are all PP sales displayed at once? So i would have a decrease about 99%

Hello never saw this website.
Do we earn a extended license with a sale with this and similar shops?

Evil deeds get penalized.
We really need a deadlist for agencys. I dont think i will read all msg threads forever.
But would also be interested in things that happen in this business.
We have this problem at this moment.. some guys ask, why not everyone opt out at dpc.
Often the reason is, not everyone knows about whats going here.

Lets say each agency has 1,000,000 life-points. with 0 points each contributor can easily see that something is really going wrong there.

Depo sells our images at shotshop and other and pays only a subscription to us.
bm -500,000 life points.

FT starts DPC, for 1$ ..
bm -400,000 life points.
FT gives higher commission for each subscription sale +500 points (they dont get more points by me for that  :) )

..of course it's a gimmick. But would also be a nice overview of current events

Then, when a short sentence would still be related to the score than explaining it, it could even make every man his own image.

I would love this gimmick :)

Do you have a ftp-access there?
At Zoonar i see a limit of 50 images a day..
At Pitopia i see no FTP-Access or multiple-Upload.

Dont understand this agencys.. I really have to click every single image for an upload at pitopia.
What a shame  :D

I would really love to see a list with a rating of all small/ new agencys.
I like to support these "fair trade" Agencys  :D
I already saw the poll for "Low Earners". But.. many of this i dont see a good future, because of the style of the pagedesign and other things.

General Stock Discussion /
« on: May 03, 2014, 09:20 »
I uploaded my images at, there was a few contributors too.
The site started february 2014 i think. Looked good. Feeled nice. Now it`s already off?
I didnt recieved any message or information.

I uploaded 4 weeks ago 400 more images and asked for selection. No answer. Now the site is down? Maintence?

I currently am making a excel list for evaluating the revenue.
Here I consider the exchange rates and much more. Uff very complex.
But since I lack the experience, I ask myself:
How do you rate the international holidays? I start from a decline in sales. Is there somewhere perhaps this information? An approximate percentage?

The Excel file should also take into account these holidays. Especially for deviation early on.

All complain about Fotolia $ 1. But Shutterstock sells but also for just $ 0.25?
Someone explain me - whats the different thing with these two. I also hate to give my images in highest size for 0,25-0,35$.
