I really do feel like something is going on with the marketplace where all of the sudden, the search traffic is being directed to certain authors. Thee new search algorithm (or whatever it is) has completely destroyed exposure for certain authors, while benefiting others. And there appears to be no rhyme or reason to it.

I think a significant change (or addition) to the algorithm was the redesign of the tags filters. My theory is tags have more weight, so make sure you have optimized your tags. Just looking at your last WP item, you’re only using 10 tags of the allowed 15 tags. Adding more and optimizing them should help increase your chances.

Rather remove items with zero sales after 3 months

What really confuses me? And maybe I’m missing something here.

One day – Spike in traffic, fair amount of sales Day after (and no not a Saturday, Sunday or Tuesday) Same amount of traffic, no sales??

Somethings royally screwed here?

Agreed, some days incredibly good, then the next day incredibly bad.. sales not following their usual pattern during the week, very strange indeed

I think Envato should always define the minimum price, this will avoid “price dumping” as some have said. And since authors can update their items and add more content, then it makes sense that anyone should be able to increase their item price if they want to…. I don’t see any problem with that, this way authors can figure out the right balance between price and sales volume for best returns.

This is officially going to be my worst sales month in over 2 years. Sales continue to fall off a cliff and I have zero explanation for it. I’ve never seen this drastic of a drop as I’ve seen in the past 2 months.
No one can answer why this is happening.
They already answered and said everything is absolutely normal and still growing.

But would Envato really tell us if there was a decline? One thing we should look for is a drop in prices, that would be an indicator that the market is struggling. There was a mention that some authors can now price their own items which is worrying – but perhaps some kind of test.

Hey that’s awesome. I never got my own :) maybe i am too far from Australia ? :((

It’s probably still on the way.. I got mine at the tip of Africa.. and I remember it taking a few months, it could also get held up at customs.
