Another brilliant move from our beloved Company:

They purchased www.boycottshutterstock.com and redirected it to their main website.

Apparently they are screwing with us big time :)

Their Google Play apps are being flooded with 5Stars reviews from India:

Amazing app

Beautiful app

Great app.

They permanently lost my trust in them, amazing how they turned out.

don't forget to add in the 'Cap' theory as well  8)

Sorry, not following :). You mean?


Something very fish is going on with Shutterstock.
I encoutered strange spikes, very highs and very lows.
For example:
 20-30 sales (various, new and old in different parts of the world).
Once the images in review got approved the next day 1 sale.

This happened for the 3rd time already.

30 sales, images reviewed, the next day 1 sale.

Today is the same scenario.

I really don't know what to make out of this but it seems that Shutterstock is struggling with their Search Algorithm and is deeply affecting my sales. There is no consistency anymore, just random sales (even sold few images from 8 years ago).

Anyone else seen this pattern?

Edit* : By "manipulating" I don't mean something "evil" going on. But so many strange changes in the Search Algorithm in such a short period of time makes everything hazardous.
