Impressions / Clicks / Messages & Orders - Stopped Abruptly

Hello fellow Freelancers,

Since the 15th of this month(November), all of a sudden I stopped receiving messages from new clients.

I reviewed my gig statistics and noticed a sudden drop in my impressions.
I have not changed anything on my gigs or done anything really to mess up my SEO.

I have two gigs which used to be very popular and I was getting thousands of impressions daily, a lot of messages and I would have at least 5 new orders per day. I was on first page.

At this point, it has been 6 days since I received my last message from a new client.
Is anyone else experience the same abrupt stop, while you haven’t done absolutely anything to provoke this kind of drop?

Is this a normal thing? Do I need to change anything in my gigs to make them go back where they used to be? Will they re-appear magically back where they used to be after some time?

I am sure there is a reasonable explanation for this I just can’t find the answer anywhere and the support team understandably is giving templated answers as they are not trained for this stuff and they surely are advised to not talk about this with us.

So I am relying on your help!

Tell me your stories, have you experienced a similar thing? If yes, did you fix it? How? When?
All the details you can offer are super important to give me a clear understanding of what is going on.

Thank you all in advance!

Yes, it is. There are double and triple the number of sellers here since the pandemic started. I can not find the post now, however just a few days ago another seller posted a reply he got from Fiverr CS saying they are rotating gigs so that most sellers’s gigs get a chance to be in the first pages eventually.

So now is your turn to not be in the limelight. Some sellers have reported it taking as long as a month to get back on track, others have said a week or two.

Edit: @finalcutallen I also see you are a newish seller. Fiverr gives new sellers a boost, so you may be coming off of that phase now.

Thank you kindly for your replies!
Okay, I guess it is what it is then :slight_smile:

It’s a nice thing that they give new sellers to get a taste of what it’s like to be on Fiverr, but seems like SEO is not all that important after all here.

I’m curious how other sellers are constantly on first page. I know for sure a few sellers who have not left first page at all from my niche which is video editing.

So I’m not entirely sure what is true anymore lol.

Fiverr’s algorithm will remain a mystery i guess

Has anyone got their tanked impressions back up? It’s been two weeks since mine went down and I am waiting patiently

Not yet for me.
Waiting patiently until the next reset which is the 15th of the month.

My advice is to build great relationship with your clients once you resolve this, as these down-times will occur more frequently than you like.

By building a good relationship with your clients (depending what you are offering as a service of course), will pretty much guarantee that you will stay super busy even when you get no new clients.

Good luck!

My impressions recovered to previous normal level for 2 days and then went back to the low level again and staying same.

This is getting weird now. The first page for my top keywords are filled with 4.8, 4.9 rating gigs (I am top rated seller with 5.0 rating for more than 350 completed projects)

Based on my experience,
Conversion rate is most important for your gig rank.
everytime you got message from client and make them order your gigs, your conversion will up, and after that, your gig will gradually up on search page.

Note : You can only see your conversion rate on Fiverr apps.

You are stating the obvious here but that’s not the issue we are currently discussing. This isn’t related to gradual rise or fall of a gig.

A quick update for people experiencing the same issue:

I still have the same issue after more than 1 month. Messages cut off abruptly, impressions plummeted from thousands per day to literally nothing and literally all my gigs are on the last page, no matter what key term you search while before I was on first page, first line.

I will start working on a few fixes and if any will work, I will be back to let you know!
Let’s figure out this nightmare algorithm together! Stay tuned.

@finalcutallen I don’t think there is much we can do. My impressions plummeted on Nov 15 from 2000+ to less than 200 per day. They came back on Dec 1 for 2 days, plummeted back again, came back up on Dec 6, and then plummeted again and they are down for the last 2 weeks.

Something weird is going on with the search ranking. For all those who saying “be patient” please hold your horses. I am not a newbie impatient seller trying to make my first dollar here. I have been a Top Seller for more than two years and I know what I am talking about. This isn’t normal ranking up & down.

I’m on the same boat mate. For me it started on 16th Nov and it was recovered on Dec 2 and From 9th Dec again gradual drop and now it is flat. Moving along with my great repeat buyers. I hope there will be a solution to this. I agree on giving opportunity to new sellers but at least 2 weeks or 10 days in a month would be good for me to earn new buyers. But the sad thing is it’s not lasting more than 5 days.
