QBKL saidExact same results here and for every other author I have spoken to which is about 8 of them so yes, it’s a general issue it seems.
jonathan01 saidLet me add one more confirmation then to this exact same behavior. The search that was supposed to improve discovery has nothing but decimated the page views of all older items. Hell, decimation is a sweetened term. The drops are in the range of 50-80%. And it’s easily observable with a simple check of the “Analytics” tab.
Pretty much the same here (and for many more I have talked to on Twitter) and an even sharper drop exactly from the day the new search was introduced.
Same me. After adding new searcher my sales drop by 50% and more, and not back. New searcher promote old and very old items with many sales and stars.
I would like to nominate this item: http://graphicriver.net/item/a5-brochure-creative/7960373
