UPDATE: We’re extending Trending throughout all categories, portfolios, and item pages. Please see/read our update here.

Hi everyone,

Giancarlo here from the Search and Discovery team! I’m very excited to announce two very exciting features on Envato Market that we think you’re going to enjoy! First of all, we’ve just launched Trending. We’ve finally built a solution to show buyers what items are currently trending across our marketplaces. We’re also about to launch in a few days a brand new recommendations engine. We wanted to give you a heads-up about it however before we launch this update.

For full details, please see our blog post below:

Introducing Trending and Recommendations on Envato Market

We’d love to hear your feedback about these two new features as we know exposure to items is something our authors have been very passionate and vocal about. We hope this is a positive first step towards a greater experience across Envato Market and we sincerely want to thank you for your patience while we researched and built these solutions. Enjoy!

Reading that full article was a bit scary… this sounds like a perfect way to get already popular items even more time in the spotlight… I’m pretty sure buyers will like it, but I don’t see how this is good for all authors. Where’s a proper search function with useful filters? :/

Just in the last few days there have been 2 threads asking for better targeted items shown after you buy something. Yay!

wow! That looks like quite a big new feature. Yay devs!



edit: is it easy to add a new webtrends flag to trending search result clicks so we can see if one of our items is trending through analytics? Like WT.trending=1 or something?

Yes, looks like another “What’s Shaking on the Hill”-Feature.

Hey dtbaker, really glad you’re liking it! I think that should be possible, I’ll confirm for you but can’t see any reason why we won’t be able to add that in.

Hey sightsignal, that’s definitely not our intention with his feature. We appreciate the concerns that authors have about getting exposure to their new items, and Trending, among others, is an attempt to get more exposure to items that have had a little bit of interest and are just beginning their climb towards popularity, rather than rewarding just the items that are already at the top of the tree. We’re still tweaking the knobs, and will be continuing to do so over the next few weeks, to make sure that this is actually being reflected.

With regard to your wishes for additional functionality around search, I can’t say too much but I think you’ll be pleased with some additional releases we’ll be making in the not too distant future.
