    Okay, I'm a software developer and i was looking at fiverr Algorithm updates, basically i was doing a simple research on Fiverr. What i did is that i just checked the gigs on the first page for some competitive services on Fiverr and what they have done is that they have given priority to the old accounts.

    What is this priority of the old accounts that i'm talking?

    Well check on http://fiverr.com/gigs/marketing And you will see that all the gigs that are out there are at least 1 years Old or as in the page that i use as example, all the gigs are 2 years old.
    What Fiverr Programmers have tried to do (In my Opinion) was that they wanted to give a little more priority to sellers with old accounts but good positive feedback. But they made some mistakes on their data-sets i think. Cause algorithm is not working well, at least for new sellers and some sellers that have joined in last 6 months.
    I think that by doing this algorithms updates, they are not doing anything good, they are just harming the algorithms.

    Sometimes people when try to make perfect things, they brake them all. That's what is happening there.

    I know what you are talking about. I was getting 1-2 orders a day but didn't have any for the last week. From yesterday, I again started getting orders and again none today. They are destroying the business lol.
