    I think this is because of seasonal trends. I have noticed it too.

    My hypothesis is that people don't use fiverr as much during Summer.

    Evidence:
    https://siteanalytics.compete.com/fiverr.com/#.VU5MzvlViko

    A sharp decline in visitors in the month of April from 2.9mil visitors to almost 1.9mil visitors.

    Similar story on Alexa.
    It used to be ranking in the top 200 sites in Alexa USA but in April (this year probably) the traffic rank of the site increased (i.e traffic gone down)

    http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/fiverr.com

    Possible causes:
    1.People go on holiday
    2.Local businesses experience surge in customers which means they are very busy during summer months and have no time for fiverr


    3.The suns out so people spend less time in front of their computer screens :beach2:

    Fiverr is falling down. First they introduced a new 'system' for ranking gigs and people complained a lot for losing many sales, they still do, only the same people are on top all the time. After that, they introduced a new 10% fee for buyers, which means for each $5 spent they must add $0,5 fee. Same goes for $100, they must pay 5$ fee. The seller still gets $4 only.

    Was that gradual or sudden?

    Gradual - my hypothesis would be true.

    Sudden - algo change. Neg reviews probably.

    Fiverr are also thinking of introducing paid ads in their results. So clients with a healthy budget could dominate the market.

    Size up your operation OP, get a couple other accounts, other niches, make your business full proof.
    I too noticed a small drop in my sales for about a week, but they picked right back up...

    They will ban your gigs if you're selling social media services or email lists.
