Fiverr is simply lost !?

I also think it’s really critical to remember that one seller can have more reviews than another but the one with less reviews might have more actual unreviewed orders.

Yep, I would look away if one has X reviews and other has Y reviews, but if you look at the profile and there’s nothing under recent delivery then I give up.

I’m still waiting for CS to reply, so will see if they have an answer. I’ll even take a template response if it makes sense 🙂

Should be interesting. They must be aware that there are discrepancies, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a staff member say that Search is “done” with the testing phase. 😒

That sounds like crazy talk. Not having as many sales is not the end of the world. You just need to diversify.

Not only is it crazy, the guy who wrote it (@chrsplmr) has 113 orders in queue on just his best seller. I don’t know what else he has going on, but since his cheapest package on that one is twenty bucks, that looks like about $2200 rounded down. Perhaps he just hopes to scare other people away from a successful venture? :roll_eyes:

I have not gained any new clients all repeat customers , @fonthaunt , Obviously if and when a person relies on fresh new leads perhaps in a diffrent niche that is not recurring and then they are taken from search my advice would still be in your words diversify , I would not advise moving from Fiverr totally but diversification would be highly advised. Hope you dont flag me again @fonthaunt

I think it’s a must for freelancers, but not everyone agrees. 🙂

I doubt I have ever flagged you myself. I’m one of several volunteer moderators and we send some notices to users are who are flagged by other users. It isn’t personal and it doesn’t mean that a moderator flagged you. This portion of your response is also off-topic in this thread, so if your post (or my reply) does get flagged for off-topic, a moderator will remove the problem content. If you have other concerns about flags, I suggest you use private messages for those instead of posting about it publicly.

Nope, you can’t be best selling if you haven’t sold anything.

Anyway, there’s no point arguing. I’m sure in a few months there’s another thread like this.

That’s the most simple and straightforward reason why the current Best Selling filter is misleading. Guys, please stand at the point of a buyer to understand what’s the meaning of “BEST Selling”, with common sense it’s not so hard to understand?

BEST SELLING was the gig sold the most many orders with good reviews. I even think that TRS should all appeared at the first page of BEST Selling sorted by reviews & orders, it only makes sense.

I don’t see the point we stand at fiverr POV to see things here, because they don’t really care about what we think though else they won’t even made this misleading BEST SELLER. 🙂 This is what their philosophy doing now:

Different is they never ask for forgiveness. LOL

Yes you are right, we know each other we are providing same services and first we both on the top first row and first page and we have high ratted seller, mine is 4K Plus completed order,

but now our place is take by only 50 Plus ratted seller how it is fair that we compare 4k plus review to 50 plus ratting ,

And we have fiverr seller since 2014 ,

So with new algorithm it is changes everything i do not know why,

So we are losing our gig position as well as did not get any order from new seller,

only i have few regular client so from them i get order ,

Same here. 4K+ orders completed. 5 star ratings. Bu new algorithm send me down in search and now very limited number of orders once and while.

They just want to sell pro gigs. That’s why they are promoting that. That’s all.

First of all, excuse me for quoting manually I don’t know how to do it automatically.

@xuntes stated:

“The parameters are of performance are for a certain period, they don’t say, but it’s about the last 30-90 days performance (as I imagine, for all these years I’m at fiverr).”

How can you assure is 30 to 90 days if Fiverr doesn’t say? Guessing is not good for objective and logical reasoning. What you think or imagine, might not be Fiverr’s thinking and reasoning.

@xuntes said:

“The example I used, one seller has 22 reviews in 1 month, the other (with total 22000 reviews) has the same amount of reviews in less than a single day. So I’m asking you, which one has the best performance? the one with total 22 reviews (in 1 month), or the one with 22000 reviews total (with about 20 reviews in 1 day)?”

The example I used was to illustrate my point but can be extrapolated to days in which case, we get the same same result. I’m sorry you’re extreming your examples, I won’t do the same because it’s impossible to compare pears with apples.

Now, I ask you, have you search and determine how many gigs perform at 20 reviews per day? I think not many.

@xuntes also said:

“PS: the one with 22 is in top of search, and the one with 22000 just lost in some pages behind.”

Well, maybe it’s because the one with the 22k reviews did have 20 reviews one day and none the rest of the month. Who knows… I’m sorry but I won’t waste my time looking to all the old and new gigs just to see how much is someone selling and if a new seller deverse to be listed as best seller. It’s not in my hand to change whatever parameter Fiverr is using and for sure, neither in yours!

@xuntes said:

“ALSO, we never talked about the lifetime performance of a gig. I believe you should judge the conversation here inside the context. Again, I suggest to read all posts before judging.”

I’m really sorry you’re so agresive! I haven’t taken anything away from context, I’m responding with arguments against your rant. And yes, I have read all the post since before it was moved to suggestions. 😉

When handling numbers, specially for what you’re complaining about, yes, you have to take into account the time span so to be realistic and as accurate as possible. If you just want to compare 30 to 90 days within all gigs, you have to put them all at the same level, meaning that the old gigs should only be evaluated for the sales/review they do in that same period of time no matter how they did before.

@xuntes said:

“Like I said, if it was like @maitasun supposed, then the one with 22k reviews should be in front anyway, because he/she got the same amount of reviews in a single day, while the other in a single month.”

I responded this before, please take a look above!

@xuntes stated:

“It’s just a joke, please don’t understand me in the wrong way. But “you should take a look at the sea before taking the wave”.”

May I say the same to you, please don’t understand me wrong! 😉

How can you assure is 30 to 90 days if Fiverr doesn’t say? Guessing is not good for objective and logical reasoning. What you think or imagine, might not be Fiverr’s thinking and reasoning.

Because all the experience I had over all these 4 years I’m at fiverr, and also by basing my gig with others.

Now, I ask you, have you search and determine how many gigs perform at 20 reviews per day? I think not many.

Exactly, you just proved my point. That the one with 20 reviews a day is performing better than one with 20 reviews a month.

Well, maybe it’s because the one with the 22k reviews did have 20 reviews one day and none the rest of the month. Who knows

I know what I’m talking, I just checked their gig, and has about 20 reviews a day, all days. Anyone can check this at fiverr. And nobody need to be a genius to know that 22 thousand is higher than 22 (just 1000 times more).

I’m sorry but I won’t waste my time looking to all the old and new gigs just to see how much is someone selling and if a new seller deverse to be listed as best seller.

I never wast anytime with this. A good seller should be worried with any competition. But if you want to compare gigs, you should “waste” this time, because these are the facts. I’m not supposing anything.

It’s easy to see that Search best selling is different from categories ranking best selling. They used to be the same.

If you take a closer look you will see that by searching for a keyword and then sort by best selling, it will show those who are performing better, now by browsing at categories ranking best selling, it changed completely.

It’s not in my hand to change whatever parameter Fiverr is using and for sure, neither in yours!

This is the difference of getting accommodated with changes, or trying to always look for the best. In my opinion I think fiverr should show the real best sellers, because this is what I like to see when I’m looking to something. I do care about fiverr, because if fiverr does good, I do good too, and misleading buyers to believe that some random gigs are the best sellers, it’s not good at all.

I just don’t understand why people get mad with good sellers who got a good placement. Fiverr has so many features to promote new and discrete gigs, forgetting that best sellers ranking was the only feature for the good ones.
