Sales on dreamstime ad dead point?

Does it only seem to me when I click to find some pictures it finds me for example 1000 pages of pictures and on the first 200 pages no image has a download! It looks like a crisis or sth... is it true or it is only my feeling because I want go exclusive here but if no sales are here I will upload my photos on other sites... help me please

Maybe a silly suggestion: have you accidentaly changed your search to downloads ascending?

That is impossible! Can you give me the keyword that you're using for search if possible?!

You're looking at the "Newest Photos" tab? That explains it, they have just arrived and haven't had time to be bought yet.

Rest assured sales are happening. I have an image approved yesterday and it already won't show up in the first 50 pages (1,000 most recent). There are a lot of new images here approved every day! Further, something approved in the last day or two may not be indexed into results, making it impossible to find and unlikely to get sales 'yet'. I have shots less than two weeks old that have sales already... What are you hoping for?

Look at the IDs of the shots you are looking at - brand new! Getting sales takes time and committment to upload and adapt to the market, there is no such thing as getting rich quick in stock photography...like anything else. Kind of depressing, though, to see just how many good images are being uploaded every day :(
