Recently i decided that it would be a good idea to change all of the videos for my gigs and replace them with more modernised up to date videos so i spent my time recording and editing more up to date modern videos for all of my services to replace the old out of date videos. Previously I was getting regular orders as a level 1 seller and believed that the next step would for me would be to update my videos to improve my overall analytics, impressions and clicks etc. to gain more orders and work my way up to a level 2 seller.
After uploading the newly updated videos and submitting them on all services over the next few days i noticed that i was no longer receiving any orders anymore ‘Why is this i asked myself’ before proceeding to take another look at my analytics for all my services. It turns out after the date of uploading the brand new videos (The date his is clearly recorded in the Analytics and is marked by a bold orange dot) my impression, clicks and views have literally all plummeted to nearly zero. WHY?
No wonder i’m not getting any orders at all anymore. How can anyone have faith in the system if by improving your services your actually damaging where they fall in the search category as i’m assuming when you update your services wherever they are in the search category or keyword category they just go further and further back to the very last page where not a single person is going to view them and if that is the case how can new and upcoming sellers expect to gain a regular income using Fiverr at all.
I’ve contacted customer support to get a clearer answer on Fiverr algorithms and how updating services effects them. I’ve now changed all of my videos back to the old videos in a desperate attempt to gain back at least some impressions and clicks that i had before not that it would change anything about my analytics but i weren’t expecting them to fall so drastically initially. I no longer see Fiverr as a place where you can make a sustainable income living from home and i feel like Fiverr’s algorithms have changed to drastically now making it impossible for new sellers to build up their business. It is time that i left Fiverr for good.
