Help me understand how Fiverr calculates "High Rating" in list sorting


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I’ve been a top-rated seller for a few years now (PuppetGrams, Hi!), and my orders have recently tanked since the rollout of V3/new rating system. I checked out the “Video & Animation/Puppets” category, and sorted the list by 'High Rating" - and where I used to always be in the top three or four, now I’m ranked #8 with a whole bunch of gigs sorted higher than mine with criteria that objectively looks much lower than my own rankings. I can’t make any sense of it.

For instance, the gig marked DIRECTLY higher than mine has 26 positive reviews, with the most recent review left three months ago. In contrast, my gig has 431 positive reviews, with the most recent positive review eight days ago. I don’t understand why the former gig would be ranked higher by any metric, unless Fiverr is taking into account something entirely outside of customer ranking behavior to calculate their “High Rating” metric, which doesn’t make any sense to me at all.

Can anyone tell me what the heck is going on here?

Thank you!

I have same problem (which started after vacation mode). People ranked above me on high rating have 200,300reviews), I have 1600reviews on one gig (not to mention that a guy that is in 10th row has over 6000reviews)

It really makes no sense.
