I'm out of leaf and peter league, but here is mine:

Overall rank     2833
7 days rank    778


Sold files     316





I'm happy with FT here are my latest ranks:

Overall rank     2245
7 days rank    458

Overall rank     1864
7 days rank    479

I had better weeks with my 7 days rank got as low as ~390 this month.
I have notice that with my overall rank I have passed 1000 photographers in the last two months.

It's all about the quality of the search engine and the results. Spam is an issue here - and getting rid of irrelevant search results is important - but not the total size of the collection.



Spam was mentioned too -- one of the biggest problems that keeps things running smoothly. And of course not everyone who spams knows they are spamming -- like people who do not have english as a first language.

I wonder if there is a way to speed up the correction of bad search terms?

Maybe a possible solution might be a free keywordng service applied by the agences.
Keywording service exist (http://arcurs.com/keywording/), so why the different sites that already have the resources - customer searches, don't apply, as part of the review process, correct keywording service that will cut a great deal of spam, while still letting the photographers suggest their own keywords.

Done!
Here is mine:

http://www.stockxpert.com/browse.phtml?f=view&id=17383431

Here I tried out Nik effex color filter software. Its great, but probably in general more attractive for other kind of photography not so much for stock photography. I bet that image gets rejected at iStock  :)

I think your image is beautiful and very useful as stock - done.

Aren't your guys tired of pampering yourself ? I do not like to see the thread popping up so often. A web site of your own ?




Maybe you didn't notice this but this is all about helping search rank on StockXpert.

« on: July 20, 2008, 02:03 »
hi daintee,

You have beautiful and sale able  images, just not enough thats all.
Upload more and you will see more income.
I'm in this businesses for as long as you are (more or less) and have earned hundred times more than you did, just look at the size of my portfolios.

I am quite sure it is thanks to the lightbox.
Thanks again leaf, hope you are all having great time in Malta.

Great job leaf.
I have changed my mind about one of the images how can I replace it? :-\
