quick anybody got any cat photos get them on there now. 407k downloads.

Average 4 downloads for each image. i.e approx rpi = $1.32 per year

Looks like the royal wedding was a good thing to get onto.Average 20 dl per image.

wow, almost 20 million images, and 200 million dls?  that means the average is 10 dls per image.  That is higher than I would have imagined, especially with 20 million images

That is really interesting.  Like the visual comparison of terminology changes.  And that "Menu" vector is all over the place.

Hmmm. I was quite surprised that the most downloaded image in Canada ... is of an African elephant. Really? I had no idea that elephants were so big in Canada, if you'll pardon the pun.

If individual images are downloaded thousands of times on FT

probably 4 - 5 times that on SS.  Those kind of numbers spread across a relatively small number of high performers will really skew the average - much like the way average life expectancy is supposed to be much higer than it was 50 years ago - mainly due to improved infant mortality where there were lots of deaths at 0 years.

yea yea, I get how the math works, but I was taking that into account.  I know there are some insanely high performers, but there are also buckets and buckets of low performers.  I know the median won't be anywhere near 10, but I'm still surprised the average is.
