There seems to be a big change on the front pages of my category (voice overs) in the last couple days.
In VO, (probably most other categories) you can sort the category by either:
“Recommended” or by “Average Customer Review”
The sort for Recommended is filled with high priced gigs, while the Average Reviews sort is almost all low priced, some stats:
Each first page consists of 48 gigs.
On the recommended page, there are only 6 gigs that start at $5, while many are in the $25-$35 range and some as high as $100-$200. The total gigs on the front page total to $1340 with an average of $28.
On the average customer review front page, 42 of the 48 are $5 gigs and the whole first page totals to $290 with an average of $6.
Seems that the higher paying gigs are being filtered to the top of the Recommended category all of a sudden. Which makes sense, fiverr is giving max visibility to the more expensive gigs by recommending them.
