Before asking this question I want to say thanks to everyone in the forums and on Istockphoto, I highly value this site!
That being said, let me give you some background.
I just lost my job!
So, I have even more deeply dove into the world of my images. I joined Istock in 2010 and since then I have kept my que filled with images waiting for approval, My library has grown, lots of money for models and a studio> Even more sweat and sleepless nights.
Lately I thought I noticed views dropping, and of late I have been doing even more to drive sales.
My acceptance % rate has steadily increased as has my number of files and the file quality. And now, finally I have started using DeepMeta so I get to see some cool stats in a pretty image.
I have even created some images this year that have been more successful than ever.
So, here is my question?
Why have page views dropped to nearly nothing? My business experience tells me I'm doing things that should bring increases. My images added in the past few months have seen almost no traffic.
How can I find the energy to continue after looking at this graph?
What am I or Istock doing that is sending my images to the bottom of the pile?

Sorry to hear that... There's lots going on at present regarding site-performance and merging of different Getty collections. It's not just you, if that's any comfort at all.. Check out different topics in the discussion section of the forum to find out about decreasing sales. Registered views are a known site bug btw, they're not accurate. Good luck!

besides the things that starkblast mentioned, the views counter is currently broken so don't rely on those numbers.

As noted the views are no longer being recorded as they were prior to September 2012. Any update on the issue will be given in the usual monthly bug thread in the Help forum.
