So I was doing well with my illustration gig, getting several orders per week. (which was my goal) I also appeared at the first page when searched for my gig’s service.
Then I had an accident and was forced to close all listings and canceled several orders. I’ve since recovered and opened the listings back up, but now my gig no longer appears on the first 1-2 pages when searching for the service I offer. This must be due to the cancellation, I presume? Is there a way to work my placement back up, and if so, how?
My clients are very satisfied & all my reviews are 5 stars. I listed ‘health problems’ when canceling the gigs, but the algorithm seems to punish my gigs regardless. The client’s who’s orders I canceled were all very understanding also.
I’d be very thankful for any advise on how I can fix my listing placement in the search.
