Hi all

I was collecting new data for Stock Photo Ideas after the feedback on top-100 customer queries by traffic. I took top-500 customer queries by traffic instead of top-100 this time and analyzed portfolios that were on the first pages of Shutterstock search for these queries. These are only queries for photo and video.

The results are published on Petapixel: https://petapixel.com/2021/07/23/how-to-rank-on-the-first-page-of-top-queries-on-stock-photo-sites/

Believe it or not, I found out that about 30% of portfolios that rank at least once on the first page have 1000 or less photos! Even though there were portfolios with as much as more than millions photos too.

Also I managed to capture an interesting SEO-"hack" that allowed some portfolios to capture as much as 1000 backlinks to their page on Shutterstock!

I hope you find it useful. Do you think I missed any interesting statistic?

P.S. Link to the previous research on forum: https://www.microstockgroup.com/general-stock-discussion/analysis-of-top-100-customers-queries-on-shutterstock-(opportunities)

I was talking about double keyword contributor fizkes few years ago on this forum and i was almost laughed at. Some here told that they can't find any of his photos in top pages. 🙈🤣 Now all can see what i was talking about 😏 good morning to them, they know who they are.

I don't know if it's the same but OlegRi has been discussed lately for his unusual high rank for his images. The SEO and backlinks makes for a good logical reason why. Maybe there are other things that he does as well.

Interesting (albeit depressing!) research.  Well done.

I checked it for two of his images (keyword woman, first and third place in ranking in my search): not a single backlink.
