I am just guessing that Fiverr is trying to be fair and places random gigs at the top every now and then. I’m a TRS myself, but sometimes my gigs don’t show at the top, and I’m not sure if it ever got featured. The thing is it’s just the way it is. We can argue that since we have been here longer we deserve more exposure and should always be placed at the top, but again
being placed at the top doesn’t mean you will get sales. If the buyers don’t like what they see at the top, they will scroll down. True, I’m sure being at the top does help to a certain point, but we can’t really complain. There are millions of gigs here, and each gig deserves some exposure. Also, as much as I understand your frustration, saying “some of them not really deliver unique work but they get featured” is not really fair. Another person might see the gig and think hey, this gig is really cool. Plus new gigs should be exposed too.
So to answer your question, does Fiverr seem to like/favor some gigs over others?
Maybe. Yes and no. Is there something we can or should do? Well I do see those gigs at the top being cycled every now and then so I think it’s OK the way it is.
Well, that’s just me though.
