I do understand that Fiverr team is always working to make the platform the best, however, some issues might be of greater importance than cosmetics improvements. Fiverr has really helped me, and i must give kudos to them for making things easy for everyone.
I do not have much orders since few months, but i don’t think the fault is from Fiverr, because i have been busy with my offline business, which makes it hard for me to respond fast. However, i have noticed that many sellers are complaining about low sales despite all their promotional efforts.
Since everyone is complaining, and my sales is also reduced, i decided to get the overview of Fiverr’s traffic status and what i saw was not encouraging at all. The quality of traffic to the site is declining, and Indians seems to be dominating the site. I am not saying that the traffic from India is of bad quality, however, the website’s bounce rate clearly shows that the traffic quality is not like it used to be.
In the attachments, Fiverr’s global traffic rank has declined, and the most visitors come from India. The bounce rate has increased by 2%, and the daily pageviews has declined by 3.43%.
22.5% visitors are from India
12.7% from USA
8.1% from Pakistan
Combination of Canada and UK is 7.3%
Using my account as a case study , less than 3% of my clients are from Asia. If this is the same for everyone, it means that most of the visitors from the region are sellers.
Many sellers from other regions might experience no sales because most sellers from Asian countries are willing to do more for less.
Fiverr’s revenue might also go down due to sellers offering more for less. For instance, a seller who desperately accept to design a complete website for $20 is not only spoiling business for other web developers, but reducing Fiverr’s profit.
Fiverr should review their promotional methods and pay more attention to countries with more buyers.
