    I've been on Fiverr since july and I must say recently it has changed a lot to the worse ? Or is it like that just for me ?
    When I got a gig to the first page on social marketing, it got hundreds of views overnight and lots of orders.
    It also got me lots of orders when it wasn't in the first page anymore.
    Now, I got that exact gig on the first page again, and overnight it got me barely any views and no orders. The orders for that gig stopped coming in from like a month ago, only few here and there. But not they completely stopped. The gig has 55 positive reviews and 1 negative.

    I also got another gig to front page on the video section. That gig got 6 views overnight. I used to get a lot of more views by just uploading a similar gig without a video.

    Here's my question - what happened ? Why are the views and orders decreasing day by day. Is it because people stop using fiverr ?

    My guess is that Fiverr clones are stealing the traffic of the original.
    Sellers these days are looking to maximize their potential customers by expanding to new locations.

    all is well, Xmas is nearing, most people have better things to do than browsing fiverr
    maybe if you'd have a gig which is related to Christmas...
    everything will be back to normal soon

    Okay, I hope it'll go back to normal as the holidays are over.
    The 2 gigs I mentioned are website indexing and video editing.
