So I think the concept of trending is great I really don’t think it’s fully there yet. First as many have mentioned it still seems to be overly weighted towards top selling products.

Another issue is that I think setting trending files should also have to do with what department on the site they are in. So for example on audiojungle not only should the overall catalog be analyzed to determine what’s trending but then also doing another round of analyzation based on genre specific as well as by file type (full track, audio logo, sfx, packs, source files). So for example currently there are 5 audio logos that are trending but if you look at audio logos by themselves and reanalyzed you’d probably come up with a couple dozen logos you could consider “trending” based on their recent history but just within the logo part of the catalog.

+1 here too. this week is really picking up compared to the summer slow down (which was real for me). Particularly the last few days have been really good.


Been a slow summer but things are starting to look better as far as what’s normal for me anyways. Wish everyone good luck.

In looking at the trending items on audiojungle it seems that the majority matches all time top sellers and items in the weekly popular pages. For some of these this is fine but I think if an Item is 4 years old with 3000 sales I usually wouldn’t call that “trending”. I think the system should be weighted a little more heavily on items that have recently seen a heavy increase in interest and not ones that have a long history of interest and aren’t necessarily “on the rise”.

I think an item with 3000 sales could potentially be on a trending list but only if say that particular item has just seen a dramatic increase in sales/likes/pages views etc…from previous weeks. Newer items should more easily hit the trending lists since it would take less sales an interest to increase it’s relative popularity. Basically the whole system needs to be weighted on a curve and if it is already I think the curve needs to be adjusted a bit more from what I’m currently seeing.


Just had this idea which would be useful for the search, since results are jumbled around. This would be a nice exposure boost to new items, highlight what’s trending / moving up and also show what’s popular – hot sellers. \\

LOL! Oh Sweet Moses! this request was from 4 years ago. Come on people do just a little research before replying to these. I’m pretty sure the moderators can shut this one down now.

At least one of the tracks from that video are from Tim McMorris http://audiojungle.net/item/give-our-dreams-their-wings-to-fly/151759

I have a few tracks similar to some of these styles as well. If you want something with and island type feel here is a good one: http://audiojungle.net/item/ukulele-island-breeze/6962726

Also at the end of the video was an uptempo rock track during the ending title sequence: I have a few of those which would be a good fit:

hope you find what you are looking for!

Now if you are on multiple sites, surely some sites would benefit from Google changes, and some would not. The changes can’t possibly mean that a search for “royalty free music” yields no results…
Interestingly however, I’m seeing that AudioJungle is now climbing the search results and now appearing on the first page (I’m searching anonymously through a VPN as not to influence my results). I’m still thinking that the sales dips we’re seeing here is mostly because of the homepage testing, and hopefully more of a temporary dip similar to what we saw during the marketplace search engine changes we saw a few months ago.

I’m not sure I can blame any homepage style changes on my slower sales here. I haven’t uploaded anything for a few weeks so the only effect I can see the homepage having is that the “latest releases” is pushed down a bit. So perhaps that could have some effect but really I rarely have a sale on an item while it’s actually on the new releases section on the homepage for just a few hours. And for full disclosure, my sales have picked up this week after a super slow week last week. Pretty sure all this is just the general ups and downs of this site and the slight summer time lull and not any sinister envato master plan or massive google analytics changes.

Besides my early days after just joining, this might be the worst start of a month for me ever on AJ.

Ha we’re all going to look back at this when the uploads get busy and slow down again to a week and say “remember when it was 8 hours!”


Track I uploaded today….done. After 8h. Magic!

not sure if you’ve already found a track you like but I found your request a little confusing. Fade into Darkness isn’t really “funky” sounding. Also not sure if you are specifically looking for something with piano as well. Either way this is a track with the same tempo as “fade into darkness” but does actually have some funk guitar elements combined into a modern sounding dance pop track.

and one more for good measure.

best of luck!
