@PremiumLayers: thanks for your sharing your pov, transparency is an essence and if certain items within a marketplace are being pushed more via SEO in terms of promotion just because they sell more then here there’s a conflict of interest because we pay 30% out of every sale to Envato so we expect the same treatment as any one else in terms of promotion. it’s ok of course to have internal promotion for best sellers that’s part of competition but when it comes to external promotion then no, therefore we definitely need to understand better what Envato is doing with their SEO and if they are getting things done properly and following the right practices

as for regulating the content of an item, again as far as we are not allowed to set our own prices then there should be some regulation when it comes to bundling plugins & demos with different designs because this will cannibalize the marketplace

and it’s because the community is growing and there are more authors and items that it requires better monitoring so there’s definitely a lot to be done about it

another point working for an employer and working over here are 2 different things, you can earn much more with an employer than over here it’s just that the nature of the work is different, with an employer you need to provide tailor-made requirements while here you’re free to design, develop and sell whatever kind of templates/themes you want so the comparision is more on the level of freedom than the income

no matter what we say it will be relative to our opinion or your opinion but if you look at facts you’ll realize that majority of authors are not satisfied with what’s going on during this last period, whether it’s about sales, the ratings, the after sale service….

we can always give flowers to envato and thank them for what they’re doing but it’s also important to be critical and demanding otherwise we’ll move from THEMEFOREST to the THEMEJUNGLE :)

when you bundle plugins in a theme every plugin is theoretically valid for the corresponding theme + the author of the plugin doesn’t provide support to the buyer of the theme where that plugin was included.

as for adding more demos, i think that it should be allowed to add new demos as long as the demo has the same design (all these multipurpose themes that include different designs should be forbidden as it’s practically the same as bundling themes which is not allowed)

the bundling process should be properly harmonized and regulated by Envato, but anyway no matter what we say it won't have any impact on reality...

we wrote this comment on the september sales thread and we’re waiting for a staff’s reply about it:

... for example when we used to type on google “directory wordpress theme” we had both of our directory themes on themeforest listed among the first results together with the other authors who sell directory themes on TF. right now if you try to type directory wordpress theme you’ll only get the best selling theme then nothing else from themeforest (the rest of the results are all third party blogs/sites referring to the directory themes

so why is this happening now ? what’s the factor that changed the referencing ? is TF doing anything about it ? are they pushing their SEO to promote best selling themes only ?

in any case we need to get a clearer picture on how Envato handles it’s SEO strategy…

Yep, that’s the same link as in the OP :)

So what makes these numbers bad (or good for that matter). Without having data from previous months to compare last month’s to, we can’t really say wether the numbers are good or bad.

Anyways, I’m also interested in hearing Envato’s stance on SEO. We had one of our products on the first page of Google for quite a while, and since this morning it dropped to page nr 3 :(

Hi, what An-themes meant is to compare “Last Month Sales Charts ( total of sales by day)” in table (5659) with the graph (that’s just a comparision between this month and the previous one)

normally daily sales are above 20-30 K so having it under 5k is really bad knowing that there are over 16.000 items on TF

As far as you’re taking between 30 to 50% commission out of every item sold we actually consider you as our business partner in this commercial process and would appreciate to get a better insight on how TF SEO strategy is handled because it’s not possible that the leading Digital Goods marketplace has sales like this: http://tf.marketopia.net/statistics/marketplace

The drop in sales might be linked to a bad SEO practice from TF or perhaps a promotion for best selling themes only, so we would appreciate your feedback regarding this matter

Thank you in advance

based on our previous comment above, we’re actually wondering whether Envato are pushing their SEO on best selling themes only ?

August was already dropping but September is even worst! Our latest WP theme was released at the end of August. TF traffic is dropping due to bad SEO practice or is it because too many multi-purpose themes priced almost the same as regular themes?

Yes we also realized that this traffic drop might be linked to bad SEO practices from TF for example when we used to type on google “directory wordpress theme” we had both of our directory themes on themeforest listed among the first results together with the other authors who sell directory themes on TF. right now if you try to type directory wordpress theme you’ll get the best selling theme then nothing from themeforest (the rest of the results are all third party blogs/sites referring to the directory themes)

would be good to get a feedback from TF about this

Cheers

are you kidding us ?? you know how many authors have been using your fantastic tools: e.g. http://revaxarts-themes.com/documenter/#!/auctions

the entire TF & CC community owes you… there should be volunteers on a non-profit basis…
