    Is it happened to you too? I am on this site since 4 month uploaded 57 clips and only one clip had 3 views when on all the other sites I have had hundred of views and many sales, why is that? It really sounds strange to me, please give me some suggestions because I don't understand. Thank you very much

    why is it than if my stuff is too cheap I got lots of views and different sales on other sites like shutterstock, motionelements, stock media pro?

    What exactly to you mean, "lot of sales"? Same portfolio on stockmedia pro, motionelements and shutterstock? Are the same clips selling on the other sites, or are they different on each? Could be the sheer volume of clips here sends you to the bottom of the search. Your guess as good as mine.

    On the topic of Views, I too have noticed that my newer clips are getting few if any views. For example, 56 clips uploaded almost a month ago are starting to get ATCs but have no views. How is it that clips are getting added to cart but have zero views?

    On the other hand, the only statistic that matters is Sales. It's just that if the other numbers are odd looking, it depreciates the overall credibility of the reports.

    Someone, I believe it was ReKindle, said the views had been disabled to outside searches as it was (I assume) being trampled by bots - distorting all. Views being counted seem intermittent or not at all. I just see sales.

    56 out of a million plus. Patience grasshopper ;) At this point until "most" artists have several hundred quality clips I wouldn't expect many views and fewer sales for many months. For some reason clips newer than about 6 months are now getting very few views. There is definitely a perception of quality tied to pricing, Dapoopta said it right. Out of your listing of lots of views and sales SS is the only one with reasonable sales. SS HD pricing is $79. oh my here we go again, thanks for opening the door Scott. Fotolia ... YGTBSM, they get none of mine anymore, too cheap payouts.

    ReKindle Comrade, what's the backstory in this? Can you give us the dirt without risking your own safety?
