The reason is that there is a rotation.
0 reviews sellers go to top, then get some orders/reviews, then are passed to last pages to give a change to other sellers with 0 reviews.
The new sellers always complained they wanted a chance. Then fiverr created an algorithm to do this. But they seems to not realize that it’s temporary.
In the past, sellers on top of first pages were the real best sellers (no chance was given). The more you work (with positive reviews), more you grow on ranking placements.
A new sellers with just a few reviews wont stay permanently on top, they will rotate, because they firstly get there by getting a chance, not because they worked hard like the veteran sellers.
In resume, the complain will never stop:
- in the past, when the best sellers were only those who worked a lot and proved they were the best, the new sellers complained they deserved a chance to be on top too.
- now, when these new sellers have a chance, they complain they have to give their places to other new sellers.
PS: My gig is the number 1 best selling in a category, and a few weeks ago it was also the last gig on the last page, today it’s one the first on the first pages again.
Don’t think you will get the top of the first page and stay there forever. Thanks to the complain of new sellers, now, even those who complain in the past, are susceptible to go to the last page too.
