Is Fiverr out of traffic?


#1

I am level 2 seller and working from last three years. I am surprised that my fiverr gig is on second page of category defined by fiverr but this gig has zero views from last 4 days? What do you think guys its ok? I dont think so. Fiverr is out of traffic even its second page dont have views and impressions. Please comment below if you are experiencing same issue.


#2

Yes, most sellers are experiencing the same problem


#3

I’ve said it before - that’s pretty much what it feels like on my end (I’m on my second year here). And this is coupled by a very significant drop in Buyer Requests (real ones - I’m not counting the brain deads who use them to offer services).

Hello,

Thanks for the sharing your problem we also facing the same problem.

:pensive:


#5

So you must reach the CS with a logical point may be many pings forced them to fix it…


#6

we have already send the message to CS, still waiting for the replay. i hope it will solve fast,


#7

I think all sellers should reach CS to realize them to fix this issue. What o feel they even dont know this problem exist…


#8

Yes you are right,:slight_smile:


#9

Diegow do you think that CS know this issue…i think not.


#10

Yes i have a same issue


#11

Yes, they are…

I said on another thread that either the new algorithm or Fiverr wouldn’t last long. It was meant as joke, but it kinda looks more and more each day that they are aiming for option 2.


#12

SO they are Tasting on the

Testing our search placement algorithm right ???


#13

I wonder what their tests are showing?


#14

Fiverr has been testing the algorithm, updating the site, changing the way search tags work, plus they’ve done routine maintenance and made varied changes on a regular basis for years. I’m sure they are aware of what they are doing. For example, phone verification changed things for sellers who had been inactive for a long time and those accounts now have no active gigs. That was a recent update that reduced the number of live gigs by thousands.

You can speculate and gripe, but in the long run the best things to do is read the forum (not just write gripes) to stay up to date as much as possible, stay up with the Fiverr blog, keep your own gigs updated and keep delivering the finest services possible. Fiverr wants to make money, so they will try to make sure they can continue to do that by promotion the gigs that fit their current needs the most and by working on the site to test varied potential improvements.

Thank you so much for the replay @fonthaunt


#16

Yes guys but its too difficult to survive without organic sales. Days are passing and creating frustration among the sellers. Fiverr must think another way of testing without affecting the sellers and buyers both. Hope they can do it


#17

ya that’s right buddy.


#18

Till now they failed

Why are you relying on Fiverr to be your only source of sales? You can get out there, reach out to your target customers on your own, and market and promote your gig(s) as well. Just like any business, you have the ability to bring in your own traffic.

Sitting back and doing nothing to promote your gigs is not a good business strategy.

If you want more customers, you need to go out and find them. :wink:

The test is obviously not the best. I see almost every top performing gigs in my category have experienced the drought. Traffic is dropping, sales is dropping and the testing still continues. I wonder if the testing is for negative reasons. Policy becomes stricter and buyers can’t even ask to remove reviews posted out of annoyance. Some unscheduled updates happen pretty much all the time. Some preventing you from replying messages or even deliver order. I hope they won’t chase us outta here.
