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.

I strongly believe this could help smaller fishes to get noticed. The following quote:

We’re able to calculate the “trending-ness” of an item by looking at how excitement levels have increased or decreased recently, and translating this into a score which we can use to compare items with each other.

tells me that if you have a small item, but it’s doing pretty good on a specific week, it should rank higher than a huge item that sold 900 times this week, but did also sell 900 times the week before and the one before that (we all know who i am talking about :) ).

I think this is a good new feature – thank you envato – and i am loving the amount of new implementations that have happened lately. Good work, keep going on the smooth transition of the market-places- into one beautiful, efficient one-stop-shop.

Yep, that’s exactly the intention for this feature :)

Have in mind the full article illustrates the “Trending” feature by using two items that are (and have been) currently up high in the Popular Items pages of themeforest… this may have confused my brain about the purpose of this feature. Guess I have to see it working live to understand…!

Anyway, good to know about those mysterious, search-related, additional releases in the not too distant future. :)

The Trending part is something essential here, thanks for the implementation. If it works correctly, we should see atleast a slight increment of new items entry on weekly popular page.

Regarding Recommendations, as long as it doesn’t rely on sales number at any point, that’s safe. Thanks again.

...as buyers interact with an item, by viewing it, purchasing it or rating it highly, we accumulate these interactions into a level of measured excitement that tracks changes over time.

That was described for Trending part. That’s fine and we need.

When it comes to Recommendations, the sales number isn’t something ideal since we already have many pages to recommend based on sales.

(Trending and Recommendations are different features both unrelated)
