I’d do Shutterstock & Fotolia too but they don’t give image specific stats, I could do Fotolia sales and views but it doesn’t show the image earnings.
You can sort by ‘downloads’ at my Fotolia Portfolio to see the current sales & view stats and see the most popular downloads from my Shutterstock Portfolio.
Just done a bit of Google Image Search trawling… found a couple of things.

Damn! a stock related topic with no beer!!! Whatever next!!!
With brewing, and learning more about brewing coupled with mortgage / house extension plans I’ve had no time what so ever for stock. Not even picked up the camera for something creative since about October last year, shocking I know!

Just a quick note to say that my Mostphotos.com portfolio is now deleted.
It seemed a waste of space, I rarely checked the site and never sold anything, better to delete my account. At least Yaymicro has sold 1 image.
March was different, I made my average cashout level but just missed out by a day or so on cashouts from iStock and Dreamstime, for the first time in a while SXP did not reach the minimum payout figure.
Here’s the Lookstat graph for March:
Next up here’s my monthly cashouts graph over time, after reading things on Microstockdiaries regarding some slowdown, so the graph below kind of backs that up showing me that earnings for March are as good, or bad, as they were over two years ago. August ’08 being my best month ever, its looks like a gradual slide downward now.
This is backed up my blog views at imagepushing.com , the first graph in weeks and then months after shows a slump in views… meanning less designers, artworkers, and buyers are searching for images
What I need to do is to start being more targeted in what I shoot and submit, if only to improve my approval ratings a little!
Its a short report this month, more in reaction to Lee’s over at MD to see if there was any correlation.
My very first iStockAudio sample sale….
