Ok... I know the best match on IS gets a lot of attention - partly because it always changes with devestating effect, but I'm wondering if anyone has noticed a change in the way the most popular images on SS are shown in the last day or so?

I know some contributors have commented on the lack of sales for new images, but I think they might be back... I have uploaded quite a lot lately, but I'm seeing about half of my top images made up of new photos, which is somewhat more than I expected, and a big change with some that only got approved yesterday hitting the top 2 spots.

More confusingly though, if I rank my photos by most popular, the order of photos in the same series isn't the same as the order when searching a keyword.

On top of that I had the most downloads of the week on a Friday, which I find highly unusual.

Anyone having any similar experiences??

I can't see a change, people often think they have changed their most popular search but they have said a few times that it hasn't changed for a few years.  January has been a slow month in the past and I find when sales dip a bit, new uploads don't sell as well.  In the spring, sales increase and a lot of new uploads sell.  That might be the reason it looks like the search has changed.
