Hi Fiverr Sellers,
Today I had experienced that “Activating Vacation Mode” on your profile declines your gig position in search results. I had gone on a vacation from Feb 19 to Mar 30 and I had activated vacation mode so as people visiting my profile sees that I’m on vacation and if they wish to get notified once I return. During this period my gig impressions, clicks, views everything declined rapidly ( Before Impression was 28K and now Impression is 2K). Tremendous decline in the gig position too.
Earlier my gig was appearing on page 2 as per my gig category and now after returning back my gig has moved to page 7. I can see some sellers having not more than 10 reviews are appearing on page 2 and page 3. How is it so? My total ratings for the running gigs are as follows:
5 star reviews - 225
4 star reviews - 6
3 star reviews - NIL
2 star reviews - NIL
1 star reviews - NIL
Anyways, I have learnt a lesson today that never activate “Vacation Mode” on your profile (sellers). I am posting my experience here so that you can also take a lesson from my experience.
Feel free to share your comments with me.
