Hey, everyone, just wanted to let you know that we’ve just launched the new Analytics tool! It shows you data on searches, sales, available models and other useful information on the keyword level. It took us a while to aggregate 6 years worth of data from the marketplace, but we’re finally ready to open it to anyone with 5 or more models uploaded on CGTrader. You can read more about the tool here:
Be sure to watch the video! It shows you everything you need to know about the tool (direct link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDaRf5nmMY8)
There are some requirements for accessing the full functionality of the tool (e.g. upload more models and make small improvements that help your models rank better in search results). At Tier 1 you get the most basic keywords, and with each consecutive Tier you gain access to increasingly more in-depth information about the market (e.g. Tier 2 requires 10 models total and unlocks the Top 100 keywords on CGTrader, Tier 3 adds another 100 keywords, etc.).
We’ve also posted an intro to the Tier system on our blog:
Let us know how you like the Analytics!
P.S. as we were playing around with the keyword search function, some funny searches popped up. For example, the keyword 'ship' is among the most popular keywords on CGTrader, but the most popular two-word search phrase with the word 'ship' was 'ship wreck', followed by 'ship Titanic' – customers clearly don't want their 3D ships to swim :D
This is fantastic news! I'm sure this tool will help us the designers A LOT!
Thank you guys, keep up the awesome work!
Uhm... It says I am not even tier 1 :D
Guys, you cannot set the score on 3d Printing according to number of formats available. Now I get why lately people are uploading 3dP files in .3ds and .max
As I only upload models for Printing on Cgtrader, I can't possible ever pass your so called quality tests. Unless I inflate the number of formats with fake, shovelware, useless copies with a different extension, but that's contrary to my principles
The new analysis tool is very complete and very useful. The presentation is also very good and also works very well. Congratulations for a job well done, and thanks for thinking of us.
The "Model Improvements" section could be improved so that all the models could be accessed. I think the scoring of the models is very important and should have more weight in the searches. This would benefit us all, the artists would improve the products, motivated to have a good score and position of our models, customers would have more information and be more satisfied, avoiding surprises in the purchase and possible returns, and all this would give prestige to CGT . I believe that sales and customers would increase because the models, in addition to having quality, would be better presented. That's why I think it's important to be able to know the score of the models, and to be an important part of the equation.
Where can we report issues with the analytics tool? I already noticed some glitches.
Congratulations, this is an awesome new addition!
What is "to keep all uploaded Content available on CGTrader for licensing"?
I have some Texturesets and sbsar files for Substance Designer and Substance Painter in my Product paige.
How should i increase the Formats? I mean, that are only sbsar files or png.
I could set it to textures, but this increase the Score only by 0.2 points.
And for sbsar files, i have no options. Others is not acceptet as as Format.
Any help would be nice
Yesterday it worked, but today i got the message "Sorry, no keywords found. Try changing group"
What group? :)

The webinar will take place March 15, 4PM GMT+2, to participate in register following this link and we will email you more details tomorrow:
The registration has questions on your time zone and whether you would be interested in future webinars, so even if the suggested time doesn't fit you - fill in the form and we will keep you updated.

Is that 12/6 months hostage agreement really necessary?
You just copied the most disgusting thing from Turbosquid and made it even worse.
You are gradually losing my sympathies.
