About 33% of my sales show as N/A sales.This means that the buyer did not access my image through a specific keyword but found it through another way. This could be by browsing through a collection or directly looking at my portfolio; accessing my photo previously saved in his/her light box; seeing my photo on a promotion... continue reading

The mysterious "n/a" searches

How do you suppose that an image is found and purchased by someone who doesn't appear to have searched for any key word?How can someone find a picture of yours and purchase it if they never searched for a key word to begin with?Many, many of my pictures have been downloaded with nothing in the search column.It simply says "n/a".For example, here is a picture that was downloaded recently but had an "n/a" listed under.So, how are people finding these images?Is there a way to capitalize... continue reading

Regardless of the search engine... continue reading

Targets n' Milestones

As I was never a photographer, stock was a word related to investment and my countries financial position as well. I never knew that something like ‘stock photography’ was a term even when I was a regular browser of xxxxx for my general pictorial browsing. I was always fascinated by the pictures there.
