If you have a file that used to sell well, but now is burried to the backend of the search pages by all of the new downloads. Apart from the fact the views are no longer giving you an indication if the file is no longer getting looked at. 


Is there anything that we can do from a contributor to bring some files back from the dead?

check keywords, maybe there are ones that you left out that are relevant. Or look at recreating image based on why you think it done so well and do it better. Use critque forum.

You might also try and link simliar files.Just copy and paste the code into the description field.


You can also add your work to other contributors lightboxes on request for more exposure of your files.

Good suggestions.

I've certainly had old files get a boost after being linked to newer work on a similar theme in lightboxes. But a lot depends on the subject matter. If it's a really common subject, the typical low hanging fruit that anyone here could shoot easily, then the sheer volume of similar shots means that, almost inevitably, they will eventually be deposed by newer or better uploads. More unique content seems to have greater staying power.
