That’s just the domain that has been chosen to be listed. You don’t have to link to that if you don’t want to… although if it says Themeforest.net and it takes you to a website on eating cats then they might get in trouble. But yeah, the domain isn’t automatically the address you’re sent to… if you hover over any ads you’ll see that they don’t always go to the domain listed. This is either a TF author advertising their stuff, and doing pretty well when it comes to search rankings for one page themes, or could be some kind of sponsored ad campaign from Envato. Nothing strange to worry about.

Oh, sorry for my ignorance

I found a strange thing. When I searched “one page theme” on google, I can see themeforest AD in the first position.

You can see the domain name is themeforest.net below the title, but I’m confused that why it will redirect to “Jarvis” item page but not the homepage when I click it?

Self hosted is going through a down phase, while some (not all!) hosted solutions are on the rise.

down down down (not just TF, but anything related)

These stats are a huge estimation but will be interesting to see if it swings back around closer to oct/nov like past years.

Interesting, so we should consider to make shopify theme? :D

@contempoinc I think the problem is the new search algorytm. I tried to find your themes by searching with relevant keywords but you are nearly invisible to me. There are some less relevant themes are in much better places than yours. I believe envato applies an “hidden rating” or something similar via their staff to some hand-picked items. If they are rates the theme and search algorytm consider it, then the search results makes sense. If you ask me there is still a huge space to improve the search results for envato, they need to work on it. Have you guys noticed that the search results are different for each time but only a couple of items different.

I guessed the same thing like you said, I noticed that the default search result is not ordered by date, and it’s also not ordered by random, so what’s the algorytm the search based on?

Well, I found the answer.

Q. What’s the defintion of a “Weekly Top Seller”?

A. A “Weekly Top Seller” is when at least one of an author’s items appears as a Weekly Top Seller on the Popular Items page for any Envato Market site.

Today I got the Weely Top Seller badge, it said “Buyers were lining-up around the block to get your latest item, how cool are you?!”

Sorry I have an idiot question, what’s mean about it? My latest item just got very less sales up till now.
