Exactly, same here, the search test would explain it, since there are no problems on top sellers and new item that have exposure as i can see, any official response pls? Coz this is disturbing had 3 sales in 3 days it never happened or is it just me?

My sales dropped 50% compared to May and it started exactly on June 1st. It is obviously something with search. It’s too much sharp drop on exactly first day in month to happen just because of less buyers.

Sales have been affected for those in Popular page as well. Let’s not worry about it though. The football fever is on at the moment. Here’s something relevant you might be interested in: https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140608160051-25760-understanding-the-frenzied-interest-in-soccer-s-world-cup

it would be an ideal time to work on another product or take a vacation yourself. ;)

I do not think this has all to do with the World Cup – it’s just a convenient excuse.

50% less earnings this month, I think because Elite authors got their Multipurpose themes, football or search, but they started to test Search engine not from 1 June… that’s was earlier. I’m going to vacation without internet for 2 weeks – screw that am out of here :D:D But seriously we need to stop on worries on this and just sit back and relax.

It’s getting stranger each passing day and I do not believe it has all to do with the football fever. It looks like some of us have blocking of some sort going on. Is it possible that this could be related to (... excerpt from this thread http://graphicriver.net/forums/thread/api-issues/133729 )

...Last Monday morning Melbourne, Australia, time, we came under a very large distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack… ...This caused us to turn our defences up to maximum, which amounts to a distributed provision of service response to this attack, whereby we block direct traffic to our data centre and force all the traffic to take the long road, via a globally distributed set of traffic filters that do their very best to eliminate the bad traffic while still letting the good traffic through…

It’s normal to have some fluctuation in sales, but such huge drop in sales for more than a week is certainly not normal. Since I can see that some people are selling just fine, it could be location blocking issue – buyers from certain locations can not see certain items from certain authors.

I have a real big headache from this, cannot understand this, it is such a huge drop that it is becoming a real issue it usually comes back after 3 days or after the weekend but still it is the same.

I marked this thread for staff reply, but don’t know if they have any reasonable advice to calm us down. It is really giving be the chills. Was turning out to be a great month for us with the new item getting good sales, now its just died and with, usually at this time we had in 24 hours 10 sales on that one alone item. Now 3 and 1 plugin nothing else from Friday, very scary, the last fluctuation we faced i thought it is bad but this one topped it!
