Excuse me for the dramatic title, but I have been frustrated with Fiverr for a couple of weeks now. I have a photoshop gig, that was ranked at #1 place back in November/December in the ‘Photoshop Editing’ category. It felt amazing, sales were going very well. Then I went on vacation and yes… I used vacation mode although I was very hesitant to. Right before my vacation, I had over 120k monthly impressions (just to give you an idea).
After my vacation, it took a while before my gig appeared in the search results again, but at least I was back on the first page. Unfortunately, everything kind of went down hill from there. I saw my stats decreasing by the day and right now, I’m at page 14 of my category, inspite of promoting my gig outside of Fiverr and making some changes to the keywords to try to see if this had any effect on the visibility of the gig. Nothing seems to work and I only seem to get work from returning clients.
I have been reading a lot on the forum and am seeing a lot of people with the same kind of problems, saying that it’s a new algorithm Fiverr uses.
Though I don’t really have a specific question, I guess I am looking for similar stories, maybe sellers who this has also happened to and how they dealt with it. Some helpful words, sharing your stories or tips are always welcome!
Thanks in advance,
