The point is if you don’t get an item on most popular you don’t have much of chance and the item will eventually die off. For example one of the top authors with an top item, has 50+ items and they only represent 25% of his income everything else is coming from that single item. That is a scary very scary stat.

But that is an example i don’t know the whole statistics, but top is top and once you get on most popular u have a better chance of earning decent money.

But i was wondering how much of the sales on themeforest in % of the whole income represent the most popular items?

This might not be entire true (hopefully). We had a item on a shared account which was on popular themes for 2-3 weeks (made about 300 sales) about 1 year ago and from then made over 1000 sales , slowly but steady. If you constantly generate traffic for your page (new items) i think that chances are to keep the old items from die off :-)

We are talking about big sales that is why it can still generate but you have to have a big amount of items to generate a decent amount of money.

Yeah but on the most popular page you would make 1000 sales in 1-2 months… getting to most popular is one thing and staying there is a totally different story.

It has something to do with search algorithm testing. I think there is some sort of testing on the marketplaces, related to the sales boost

This is what you can see in the search results page code:
<meta content="original" name="WT.new_sorting_method_test" /> <meta content="80" name="WT.sales_boost_test" /> <meta content="control" name="WT.qs_branch" />

The WT.sales_boost_test changed during all week and the search results were different every time when WT.sales_boost_test had another value. (one day it was 100, next day was 40 I think, next the line of code was not there, now it’s there and equal with 80, etc)

Really slow for me too. Only 1 sale during the past five days… Never seen that since I’m an author on CodeCanyon :zipped:
