So after getting my first 3 reviews, my gig did rise a lot in the search, but just after that, my gig’s ranking, impressions, clicks, and everything started going down again.
I keep checking my gigs’ status by opening an incognito window and searching for my keywords to get accurate results.
One day I read somewhere here on the forum that conversion rate is also extremely important for your gig’s ranking. When I read that discussion, I instantly understood what is happening. I recalled that when I got my first order, I saw the conversion metric for the first time on the app. My next two orders were on the same day. And I remember that the conversion rate increased a lot that day.
Now I understood that it might actually be the CONVERSION RATE that is very important which I was always ignoring.
Now how am I damaging my own gig? By searching for my gigs several times a day, and obviously not ordering it. Further, when the gig had started ranking, I had started looking at it a lot more, just out of excitement. Maybe beause of getting so many unwanted impressions and clicks, that didn’t convert to sales, the Fiverr algorithm thought that this is a pretty bad gig that people don’t want to buy, or is something clickbaity.
I’ve always checked out my gigs from an incognito window because I am still new and wanted to keep track of how my gigs are doing. What I didn’t realize is that I am damaging my own ranking by getting the conversion rate down. Before the reviews, my gig was somewhere at the 6h page. When I got my 3 reviews, I jumped straight to the first page. And as of today, my gig stats look just the same as my initial days, it ranks on the 6th page again. Due to not getting any orders for a long time, I can’t see the conversion rate anywhere, so I guess it must be 0.
Now I have stopped doing it, and am sending offers more frequently. I hope to get higher in the ranking.
What are your thoughts on it? Thank you for reading.
