I dont know what to think about it… I didnt perfrom that well in dec-january-febuary becasue i didnt pay attention to fiverr but this month i made around 50-60 orders and still cant find myself when i use search engine. But can see a bunch of people without reviews or with like 1 🙂

I read like 2 stories about people who also dissapire from search engine but after a few months like 4 they were back on the 1st page its weird!

Yeahhhh. This is what I find too. It seems totally random a lot of the time. I’ve been shoved to the last page randomly along with my competitors a bunch of times. Then replaced with people who have terrible reviews. And I mean terrible. One time they had less than 4.9. It makes no sense as my replacements on the search rankings would have barley ANY orders in the que due to the bad reviews. So like fiverr would’ve been losing money. Why would they do this :s

I would’ve thought that it would be a matter of how much money you bring into the site but obviously not.

I just got my first order in 3 months, I finished ahead of schedule but now I’m more confused than ever:

  • It is from a Gig that I had never got an order from before
  • It is a Gig that I haven’t edited since launching it last year
  • It is a Gig that has over 100 impressions/6 clicks over 30 days
  • My main (most successful) Gig is still getting less than 30 impressions/clicks over 30 days…

This always amuses me - gigs that shouldn’t get an order get one.

My explanation for it is that there is a search term that gig ranks for which is very unusual and someone searched for it. It could be anything and not even very related to the gig.

That makes sense and makes absolutely no sense at the same time hahaha…

Well, it’s happened again and I don’t even know what to do anymore… I’m in the exact same place as I was three months ago; I’ve had no work for a whole month, even though I finished my last job ahead of schedule and got a good review for it.

Now all of my impressions/clicks are down even though I’ve been online most of the day fairly consistantly.

The marketplace has changed drastically since I posted this, even though it’s only been a couple of months.

There are a lot more variables now in play, like: sponsored gigs, seller plus program, and a few more that are now being tested and are not yet announced.

The formula keeps getting complicated, but the premise is the same:

It’s all about the right fit, and performance is key.

I’m in the test bunch for the new gallery tags. The webinar on it was interesting- it seems they are giving us the option of condensing our gigs by tagging our variations. Kind of how search works on Amazon.

The example they gave was on an illustration gig. They showed one illustration gig with up to 3 variations (animal/human/etc) with separate tags for each variation.

Then, when buyer is searching for “animal illustration” the gig image that is tagged with that will show for the buyer as the main image.

And the different gig image tagged with “human illustration” will show to a different buyer— but all from the same gig.

It’s kinda exciting! 😊

I worked closely with Roi and he explained how this feature will be expanded and worked on after launch, and I do think that this is an exciting thing for all sellers, as it provided transparency in how matches are made.

I made the official explainer video for this feature. 🙂

Nice! Well it looked great and was very clear!

Do you know if there are plans to make it available for all/more categories, or did you mean for all sellers who are in categories that feature was launched for?

This is a “system-wide” feature as far as I am aware of, and it drastically changes how matches are made.

So while initially the roll out will be in select categories, this will soon be available to everyone.

Essentially, if you have a tag claiming you do X, and you can also prove it via a sample, the algo will heavily favorite you, over someone who just makes the claim via SEO but hasn’t registered a relevant sample.

And then on top of that, I assume how relevant and of what quality said sample is, will also play a huge part.

That makes complete sense Frank but my most popular gig was very successful and I haven’t got a single order from it in 4 months.

I’m going to resume looking for a “real job”, unfortunatly Fiverr is no longer my prority, I can’t live without regular work/money and it makes no sense for me to stress out over something that is almost completely out of my hands now; I can only try for so long…

It says:

Gallery tagging is currently available in the following categories:

Graphics & Design

    • Illustration
    • Book Design
    • Album Cover Design
    • Social Media Design
    • Presentation Design
    • Flyer Design
    • Architecture & Interior Design > 3D Modeling & Rendering

Music & Audio

    • Session Musicians
    • Voice Over

Video & Animation

    • Product Photography

The “currently” seems to indicate they might launch it for other categories too, yes, I was just wondering whether some categories might not be considered at all for this, as from the ones listed so far, it might perhaps be limited to “visuals” and music/VO. I’m hoping not, because it would be beneficial in other categories as well. Well, wait and see, I guess. But thanks for the reply, it definitely makes sense if there’s some “verification” to check claim/sample.

No I don’t think there are categories that are NOT being considered at all.

It will be harder to implement on some categories but Fiverr wants this across the board.

Unfortunately I am at the opposite side of the spectrum. I like the gamification aspect, but for me the forum is harder to browse now, and I am not as enticed to visit it often (as I was before). I am sure it's just me (or a few of us), and I understand you can't please everyone.  I'll keep using the forum, but not as much as I used to, that's for sure.

Maybe it's because you got used to the old design. I used to not be very active in the forum because its interface seemed somewhat difficult to me, everything very accumulated and now the design looks cleaner and it is easier to navigate within the forum but in short, each one with their preferences. Greetings! 🙂

Desafortunadamente, estoy en el lado opuesto del espectro. Me gusta el aspecto de la gamificación, pero para mí el foro es más difícil de navegar ahora, y no me atrae tanto visitarlo a menudo (como antes). Estoy seguro de que soy solo yo (o algunos de nosotros), y entiendo que no puedes complacer a todos. Seguiré usando el foro, pero no tanto como solía hacerlo, eso es seguro. 

And I think that the loading speed is very important too, it is another element that I consider favorable of this new interface.

If you take a look at the first post and the discussion that followed, you will see that this topic isn't about the new forum at all.

I understand why you made the mistake, though; a couple of users felt the need to post completely unnecessary thank yous on a topic that was sitting idle for the last 4 weeks, so, without checking the first post or what's this all about, you thought it was about the forum.

Perhaps now you see why all those "thank you for your amazing tips" comments are a problem? 🙂
