    Hi,

    I just wanted to ask have you been affected by the new Fiverr update?

    After the new update I have been having a lot less orders today. Anyone having the same issues?

    It seems like they intentionaly want to make things worse.

    Lately they make a update once a week, that makes everything worse. Then it takes 1-2 days to change it back to original version.

    So you can get pissed once a week why they made the update what made everything disfunctional

    How much orders did you receive previously and how much today if it's not a secret?

    They have now changed that the old-timers are forced back. Even when sorting by ratings, you can see in #1 guys with 10+ feedbacks and guys with 100+ positive feedbacks are left at the 2-3 page

    Easiest way is to take a look at the gigs what recive a lot of orders. Make this service better or think some new twist to it.

    So take a look of the gigs that receive a lot of orders and think what you could do yourself.

    Post it and start making some money

    i don't think it's really new, this is the case since they made that change you can't order the gigs by popularity, that was exactly when they mixed up their search algorithm even more
    idk, maybe it's just me, but the ranking of my gigs don't seem to change a bit

    anyway, it seems we have now not only google dance, but fiverr dance as well, however the sandbox is still missing :)

    I'm more of a buyer than a seller on Fiverr so I haven't seen much of an impact but I'm sure this won't be the last time they make a change. Hopefully the hiccups get smoothed out; I'm sure Fiverr prefers to have the long term sellers w/good rep be rewarded in search rather than dropping in the listings.

    I put my first Fiverr gig up yesterday and I can't even find it in the listings. I've checked that the gig is active multiple times, but it never comes up when I search for it. Is there any way at all to fix this?

    Tell us what you did, so we can learn from your mistake.... Did you fail to deliver your orders? I keep getting into keyboard wars with ****heads all the time and I have the feeeling that some of my accounts accounts won't last long :D

    Fiverr :)
    I had a "surprise" order yesterday - usually I have 3 days to finish an order, this one had a 10 hour delivery...no email received, nothing :). We all have to understand that Fiverr is still on beta ...their main focus is on testing things out right now :)
