I am depressed !

posted on 30th of march, 2009

My sales drops suddenly this week.
I have 8-10 sales per day before this week, but now I have 1-2sales per day.
After seeking for the reason I found that has the possibility is the sales drop which the new search engine creates.
I did not know when the search system is upgrade.At present seeks for my picture through the search engine, they usually after 100 pages, but before, they usually in first 3 pages.
At present through the key word search picture, the rule which demonstrated is sorts according to under sales capacity how many. This is helpful in the buyer discovers the most popular picture but these picture overwhelming majority is the old picture.This rule was very difficult to find the new picture and new contributor.
The above is my analysis, possibly is the individual phenomenon.
Whether some people also do encounter this kind of situation? Hopes everybody discussion.

This is unfair, search should be always as per relevancy, then there is no use of spending long hours to find the right keyword. Hope DT does justice to everyone involved in uploading great images.

Ya I too experiencing the same situation, sales are dropping for me day by day.

I thought there was something different. I guess that explains a bit of a drop in sales.

I recently noticed that the search chagnged to favor 'popular' instead of 'relevancy', and when i noticed it I also noticed a drop in sales. Since then things have bounced back and I've had some great days. I suspect it just took a few days for buyers to notice they need to change the search - or it is just 'random' fluctuations! i e-mailed support and they said they were always tweaking the search results, so hang in there and watch for longer term results...
