Alexa only measures visits by people who have installed the Alexa toolbar and is not a good indication of traffic. For example any locked down corporate desktop won't allow you to install non approved software.

Essentially Alexa shows a percentage of traffic but drawing conclusions from it simply valueless

I don't see a decline at all in 08.   I've had my best month with individual sales in April (my 12th complete month with SS).  In January I had 100 less sales than April - but it was my BME due to more EL's.

Yes I know, but it's like when there's elections. They call a thousand or so people and then they give the pourcentage. Even whitout having the whole infos the specialist say that it's give a good representation. And the results are good most of the time. But I have to agree that this way to get infos is not logic, but it seem to work most of time

SS is for me not comparable with other sites, because I have there 20 times more downloads than on all other sites together. I don't know if it's usual...

Weird.  After being so happy to have my BME on SS in April, now all of a sudden for May the sales seem to have been cut in half.

Probably way too soon to draw any conclusions, but I am tempted to wonder if a lot of expired subscribers are holding off to try out istocks new subscription svc. this month. 

Or maybe I am just having an off couple of days.

Lisa I think that it is being caused by the  holiday weekend in most of Europe  since last Thursday.

I agree with the Bank Holiday in Europe statement.
I have been with SS for quite a few years now and was surprised in April to see how many of my older pictures were selling... :) :)

And May is sure starting off slowly because of it ... let's hope for a bumper crop of DLs next week!

I believe Monday is a bank holiday in the UK, so that may put a damper on the start of the week.

Correct. It may have also contributed to a slower day today, many will take the Friday off to have a four day weekend.
