Seems to me that whatever SS do it only takes a few months and adobe/ft will follow and imitate it. Now adobe have started with this captcha crap which is just so stupid its unbelievable!
Their search algorithm seems to go hand in hand. Useless! lower end contributors favoured and both are pushing subs packages all the way and both are at the moment producing crummy results if peoples comments here and everywhere else is anything to go by.

As soon as my two new macro sites have taken off oh man I am well out of these two places. So sick of seeing these 0.38c sales and the 10 hours downtime at adobe. Take my port of 5K files and upload the lot at the Getty RF or even Istock is better!...my moth there was great! 843 bucks and for Istock that is good for an indy!

Ok rant over but Im serious actually fed up with micro its just hassles and all for nothing really.

I agree with you, it's all for nothing. However, I don't have that many images yet and I am certainly not selling well on Fotolia. I did at the beginning when I started but after 8 months they seem to have forgotten that I do exist. You are sick of getting 38 cents? What about the 2 cents you get from iStock? I got for several images just 2 cents.

That's a great strategy until istock change their search and your earnings fall off a cliff.  That's happened with lots of us.  I got so sick of istock, I left.  Sites like Pond5 for video and Alamy for stills appeal much more to me than Getty/istock who have treated contributors so badly over the years.
