How to recover these vanished gigs? 🙂

Be active on Fiverr. If you edited your gigs, then they may disappear from the search for 24-48 hours. Apply to as many buyer requests as possible. Do everything you can think of, and you will be rewarded. However, DO NOT edit your gig more than once in 2 weeks.

Hey @insects44 right now it seems like you are just doling out generic and arbitrary advice.

Stay active on Fiverr? Edit once per 14 days?

And what’s more, people think you shared a hack.

You may need to edit your post’s title, as there is no solution, it’s just you making a hypothesis and then responding to each reply with a generic piece of advice like:

Do everything you can think of, and you will be rewarded.

Thank you @insects44

I have been a seller on Fiverr for more than 8 years and I have completed almost 11,000 orders. My gig has always been there on the first page.

However, all my gigs moved to the last page in May. I have done the changes to the gigs as you requested on this thread. Let’s see what will happen.

Thank you.

Yep, the original “solution” is based on something CS told him that is their standard we can’t help you but you won’t go away til we say something so this is what we will say answer.

Everything else is conjecture based on very little substance. Apparently when you put [sOLUTION] in the title people seem to believe it more easily. Must be why CS mark tickets as solved every time.

Yup, also upon my initial reply to his OP, @insects44 was more concerned with whether or not he can add my reply to his post and give me credit. (?!?!)

And I now see that he is linking to this thread on other people’s posts about why their gigs disappeared.

Looks like he got a little too excited and is more concerned with getting hearts?

EDIT FOR CLARITY: I am not attacking or calling out the OP. I am simply saying the post may need to be modified as this isn’t a solution, or a proven method.

Given that you have 100 times the sales of the OP and have been around for twice as long as them, why did you decide to take their advice and change something which has been so successful for you? Seems like it should be the other way around.

I share what helped me! Not something which I’m making up for hearts. Also If you think about it more, can you find other solutions?

I am always replying with my personal insights and experience, I never call them “solutions” or claim I solved the algorithm riddle.

There’s a difference.

I dunno. I like the idea/effort of trying to help people but it should either be clearly marked as theory/experiment or based on something extremely concrete.

Someone with 11000 reviews just edited their gigs based on this advice, seems crazy to me given the lack of supporting evidence.

When did you change your gig’s titles?

I have been trying many other methods throughout the past month. In fact, I have did 50% of the work that he has mentioned, but it didn’t provide any results.

That’s why I decided to try the other things as well ( like changing my gig images )

I too applaud enthusiasm, but this is kind of blurry right now.

It is presented as a solution and people are messing with their gigs based on the OP’s personal experience.

This is a long topic and thread. There are a lot of things you could disagree for. If you notice something which is not correct, tag me and tell me what needs to be corrected.



I recently noticed this “bug”: Top sellers from the first page get thrown to the last page and then forgotten forever. If you came here to learn why and how I fixed it, you’ve come to the right place. However, this may take a lot of effort from your side, so, get ready! 🚀

Before I show you the steps to fix your gig’s position in the search, I wanna explain how the search algorithm works and why so many people are confused about it.


Why am I getting demoted?


Fiverr decided to insert a new tactic, which confused a lot of sellers, and they don’t know what to do. Fiverr want’s to give chance to new sellers, that’s why there is always circulation on the first page in the search. A random amount of new sellers are getting promoted on the first page, so they have a little bit of chance to grow into successful sellers.

Fiverr decided to demote old gigs that were not edited for a long time. For example, you may have a thousand of reviews, however, you haven’t updated your gig from a year, Fiverr randomly decides that your gig is old, and boring, and throws it back to the last page, where it will be forgotten if you don’t do anything about it. This is probably a new clean-up strategy to remove old gigs from the first pages.

No matter if your gig is active, with a lot of orders in queue, whether you have any rank or not, you lose it in minutes. Then you have to regain everything again the way you started, however this time it must be easier because you have reviews.

This didn’t seem to occur before, so I think there is a change that has been made in the algorithm.


How do I get on the first page again?


First, make sure you are searching for your gig right. If you search you gig with “animation”, it may not be on first place, however, if you search it with “loading animation”, it may be in the first place! If you tried every possible search and you couldn’t find your gig, then you may continue reading this thread.


SUMMARY, if you don't have time to read this topic:

If you have tried everything, editing your gig, tags, images, video… and nothing worked, the best thing for you, if you are one of those sellers with a lot of orders getting demoted is buyer requests. If you have more time to read, continue reading, and find out yourself…


I contacted support about this issue and they answered exactly what I expected:

Regularly refresh your Gigs with new photos and descriptions


Before I tell you what I did, let me show you the results of it:

This is my gig:

These are my tags:

screenshot_427

And this is my spot in the search when I search for “Loading GIF and GIF loading animation”:

Tags are the main reason I’m there. I purposely thought of every input possible and set my tags to the most common inputs I thought I buyer would type.

My 5 tags, which are Loading, Animation, Gif, Animated, Logo, can form a lot of searches. For example, my 5 tags can form those phrases: GIF, Loading GIF, Animated logo GIF, Animated GIF, Loading Animation, Logo animation GIF.


The search algorithm is NOT based on SEO, and any SEO will not affect your gig’s rank. At least, that’s what I think. If I’m wrong, here is how to improve SEO. If you use tags that people will never type in the search bar, you aren’t gonna get in front.

Click me for SEO stuff:

Make sure your tags are what people will search in the search bar. Then:

  1. Use tags all separated, no two words in one tag. Try to use synonyms instead of 2-worded tags. This is what I use:

    screenshot_418

  2. Use your tags in your title:

    screenshot_419

  3. Use more of your tags in your description, without making them way too many (I tried my best to add as many tags as possible without making it too much):


Once you edit a gig, it may disappear from the search for about 24 hours, but you have a chance to get it in front of other gigs once it appears again. If your gig becomes viral (receives a lot of orders), NEVER edit your gig, as it may go back in the search results page.


The most important step: BE ACTIVE!

Once you update your gig, as CS recommended, I really doubt that it will immediately go in front of others. I think the only solution is more activity from us, the sellers. If you got demoted, I recommend you to actively start using buyer requests.

One more thing which may help is nice test results. Take the tests you can, so you get more attention.


ATTENTION! None of this guarantees you coming back from hell to heaven. You should be really active in order to do so. You should be doing everything you possibly could think of to correct your gigs, including correcting your gig’s spelling, grammar, using buyer requests, sharing your gig somewhere, where the audience might be interested, and so on.

@nikavoice, @misscrystal, @sarikaverma007, @bodmas, @sameed_webdev, @fittranslate, @toner2d, @oyinstudio, @cyaxrex, @eoinfinnegan, and all others which I didn’t mention, Thank you all of sharing info with me! I think it would have been impossible without you. Thanks for the votes in the poll too! I learned from your experiences to create this giant conclusion. Here are the results from the poll:

.

I already know there are a lot of mistakes, this is such a big post that I can’t make sure everything is correct. I will appreciate if you tell me if you spot something! Please, give a like for my hard work, I wanna see your support! ❤️

So how is it a [sOLUTION] then?

What is the most important part of all is being active. For real active. Not checking your Fiverr account once a week for orders. @eoinfinnegan

If you are active enough and Fiverr notices, they will put you infront. This is the solution.

I’m having a bunch of repeat clients and I was able to keep myself occupied throughout May with their help. However, it will no longer help me to expand my business. Let’s hope things will get back to normal pretty soon.

Where did you get this information?

I’ll pay $20 for a proven reliable source.

Also, anyone who thinks checking their account once per week is a suitable strategy is probably not really expecting to get much from it.
