further ...

as it happens two fixes were released this afternoon and the site put in for google re-indexing, but there are still some more fixes to be completed and released before things should be fully resolved.

Hi Aldente

Thanks for this update.

We know what the problem is with the mychillybin google search results at present and are currently doing some programming to fix this. It is taking longer than we would like but we hope to have the fix in place before long now.

Hi David
A friend of mine has told me she did a Google search today for 'New Zealand Dollars stock photo image' and 'New Zealand Banknotes stock photo image".
NOTE - apparently Google Image Search is how people look for Stock Images these days - that way they see a range of Stock Library options as a starting point...

She knew that I belonged to a NZ Stock Image Library so thought it would be good to check it out - but she had forgotten the name of our library site.
BUT both of her specific searches showed NO images from MyChillyBin.
Heaps from: Shutterstock, 123RF, Alamy, Getty Images, Dreamstime, Deposit photos, pixastock, Thinkstock, Canstock, istockphoto, avopix, agefotostock, keyimagery, etc, etc, etc...
But NOTHING from myChillyBin.

Who knows how much potential business we are losing because of this huge disadvantage?
Can this be better?

Hi David
I hadn't seen this request - so have uploaded an image.
May be a bit late to be useful!

Photographer payments for May have been put through today - both the supplier invoices and the actual payments themselves too. Just two payments remaining where updated bank account details is needed and has been requested.

A little late this month sorry - so they include sales in June too up to today.

cheers for now

Hi

Today we have had two requests for images that are not present in the library, so we would like to obtain these for future clients if you are able to capture these in your travels;

1. round hay bales decorated up as people or faces e.g. or like scarecrows at festivals like one in Gladstone Wairarapa, These need property releases to be most useful.

2. Groups of stone or pebbles with a nice blend of natural colors, natural browns etc not all greys

Cheers for now

In addition to working to stop automated crawlers visiting images and artificially increasing viewing numbers, there are two other developments underway at present.

1. A program is now being built to enable us to efficiently review older images and to archive those with less probability of being of interest to todays customers. This has been asked for by customers.

2. A limited time targeted promotion with a discounted 10 pack of credits to celebrate 10 years of successful operation is underway. The first materials were dispatched today.

mychillybin 2.0 is a project for next year and involving major renovation. A series of preparatory improvements such as 1 above, and promotional activity such as 2 above, will occur this year.

Cheers for now

Thanks for this comment, and interesting to hear more people are image searching this way. Many existing customers continue to search on site too.

We have been working on improving our google position this week. We have discovered that quite a few photographers have the semrush bot crawling their images every day to increase the times that they are viewed - who has set this up we do not know at present. This is rather obvious, with such multiple views continuing right through Christmas day etc.

This will be adverse for the mychillybin community's google rankings for images as google is much smarter than semrush, and is likely to mark down sites where semrush or other bots are operating to create false view numbers. We will see if we can stop the semrush crawler from entry to the site to fix this going forward, along with obtaining better image rankings with google though improved site maps being logged etc.

Much appreciated.
