    Hello everyone
    Long story short, I started fiverr 6 months ago.As a new seller , I got one to two orders a month, I reminded myself that it's normal since I am a new seller and no one would trust a newbie. (Haven't done any review exchanges) Then, before two months till now I haven't received a single order while still receiving impressions.
    Did anyone encounter such thing? Help is much appreciated .

    It's a conspiracy !

    On a more serious note, have patience. Lots of baby birds, so many mouths to feed:)

    Impressions are not relevant - they just show that your gig appeared in someone's search results, and it could have been at the very bottom of the page. You ought to look at the clicks your gig receives. :)

    Not really - I'm only saying that impressions are not a good indicator of success. If you have a lot of views but do not convert, then something may be wrong surely. If you have a lot of impressions, it shows that your tags might be working properly, but that's pretty much it.

    Do not worry about that though - Fiverr is saturated. Your stats, given that you have probably not promoted your gig too much, if not at all, are pretty good.

    You could exchange some reviews if you're into that approach, as it boosts your credibility. I've frequently seen people advertising Skype groups around, but I don't know... it seems a bit too sketchy to me.

    Did you receive any negative ratings?

    BTW, they just doubled the processing fee (previously $0.50, now $1) without any notice. Your customers now have to pay $6 to buy your gig. It's more difficult to get orders now.

    Getting one or two orders per month compared to getting none is not that big of a difference, it can be luck or anything, really.

    Although there are noticeable trends in getting orders, i can't really explain it with anything other than Fiverr fucking with their algo from time to time, so the ranking of the gigs change. Sometimes it's in your favor, on other occasions it's against it.
