  1. Hey everyone! So after my latest Thread and Live Stream which can be found here: I realized that it had been a while since I published a new gig. Putting myself through the process all over again, plus a series of insightful questions by fellow members really showed me that things are a little different nowadays. Fiverr treats new gigs a bit differently and it is now clear to me that we should approach gig creation with a few core principles in mind. So I thought it would be helpful to create a sort of checklist before starting the gig creation process, to make sure you give your brand new gig a fighting chance on this saturated and highly competitive marketplace. This is not going to be a top-10 list of generic "tricks", this is actionable advice, plus some good old insider information. 😉 Let's begin. Preface I am repeating myself on this forum, and I will keep doing so until it takes: We should abolish the term "rank" when we talk about our gigs. Ranking is no more. Fiverr is now indexing gigs when they are published and then it only serves them to buyers based on relevancy and performance. A quick recap of what my "Fiver 3.0" thesis was about can be found here: Do not be fooled by the publishing date, it is still current and for the most part it still stands true. What happens when you hit "publish"? When we publish a new gig, there's a brief window in time, where a lot of things happen in the background. Your gig gets indexed essentially and then unless it gets taken down for breaking ToS, Fiverr needs to calculate how well your gig will perform, POTENTIALLY. This is the tricky part: in order for Fiverr to do so, it needs to guesstimate the result, based on a highly complicated formula. (👆Me when I check my brand new gig's analytics the next day☝️) So what does that formula even look like? No one outside Fiverr knows the answer to that 100%. But any experienced seller can actually piece some of the pieces together, which is what I have been closely doing since 2019, when my research began. So here's what I theorised so far: • Fiverr checks to see how well the gig is completed on your end. (remember the "use all the features" advice? 😉 ) • It also checks the gig Title, Gig Tags and meta data. (in that order) • Then it checks your gig's description. (simple crawl) • Finally, it checks a bunch of things on your profile. (there's lots of speculation regarding this, but it will make sense in am minute) That's phase 1. For every one of those checks, your gig gets an individual value assigned to each attribute. Let's call it a "grade". So if you want your gig to have a fighting chance, you must focus on the following: 1. Gig title A gig's title is like 90% of the SEO, belive it or not. It is the thing that impacts your gig's chances of appearing as a result, regardless of what is in the tags or description. You need to focus all your efforts into researching your market. Use Fiverr as a buyer (just click the "switch to buying" link next to your profile image on the top right of your screen) and start searching for what you offer. So for example: Let's say you are looking to create an NFT gig. Search for the word "NFT". (no quotes) Something interesting happens: Fiverr tries to guess what you (presumably a buyer) is looking for. How does it guess? It has a database of past searches that is constantly updated. So there is a good chance that whatever terms are auto-generated by Fiverr, those are actually trending ones. But please be mindful of the fact that they are probably not refined, as these are probably being presented as they were fed to the system. Not what you were looking to make? Was it an "NFT animation"? Just keep typing, see what comes up. Or switch it up, look for "animated NFT". Hopefully you get the idea. Here's another example: What if I wanted to create a "minimal logo" design gig? Here's what happens when I type in minimal: So these are some great suggestions, to help you guess what buyers are looking for, and create a gig that's specifically designed to catch a percentage of said searches. Another tool at your disposal, if you are a Seller Plus member, is the "top keywords" tool, under your "analytics" tab. So if you already have a similar gig published, or an already successful gig in the same vertical, you can actually look into under what keywords your gig appeared in search results, and which one of those got you clicks and sales. So using this tool to guess even more accurately what keywords interest your target audience. You can use an adjective to describe your offering, as I see many sellers do. But take note that the longer that word is, the more characters you are essentially throwing in the trash, as the adjective itself will not help your gig at all. It's only there to appeal to your audience, plus make the sentence a bit more tolerable to humans. So yes, you can say "I will create a professional/amazing/wonderful logo" but leaving that out when you have a long key phrase you want to focus on, may be a better approach. 2. Tags/keywords These need to be complimentary ones, and not reusing the same keywords/phrase as in your title. So here's where you want to niche down. Say you created an "animated video ad" gig. Here's where you can add several complimentaty keywords that help capture more leads. Words like "facebook" or "Instagram", or "promotional" and "commercial". Here's where you are looking for words -much like a guessing game- that would still work when used in the same sentence as your gig title's main key phrase. You are upping your chances by also guessing correctly about different things that buyers would be looking for. So once again, researching trends and what the global marketplace is doing, is key. 3. Description This is not the place to use keywords. Using them organically in sentences that make sense, is OK, but Fiverr has already decided your relevance from steps 1+2. Adding keywords here won't change its mind. This is the place where you need to present your buyer with a sound positioning. They need to understand what you are offering, peek into what working with you might look like and what they can expect. Anyone who talks about SEO and cramming keywords on the description, should just stop as this is not how this works. 4. Gig completion I have covered this extensively here, no need to expand any further: Performance Review Phase 2, is performance review. So essentially Fiverr needs to understand as soon as possible, if your shiny new gig is a diamond in the rough or a hot pile of garbage. How does it do that? Simple. If it serves your gig to relevant search results, it measures impressions plus the infamous Click Through Rate. (CTR) That means that every time your gig shows up on a buyer's screen, via the search function, your impressions number goes up. I see a lot of sellers coming here and asking "how to ge their impressions numbers up". Which as a question it makes very little sense. Here's some advice if you are in that group of sellers: Impressions will only go up, if your gig's title and tags are relevant to what buyers are looking for. Write that on a post-it and stick it on your desk or computer monitor for daily reference. Some people may ask: "But Frank, not all buyers search for gigs, many buyers visit the gig vertical and click on their preferred subcategory. What happens then?" Well, that is a different subject as it involves a lot more performance indicators when calculating dynamic positions, so I will leave this for another post. Now, back to this guide. If the buyer clicks on your gig, you can track that click via your analytics, but most importantly, Fiverr perceives that interaction as a positive one. That's your clicks in your gig's analytics. So at this point, you get a new grade based on that metric. Here's the important part: Getting impressions, means your gig's titles and tags are somewhat working. (yaaay!) Not getting clicks, while getting impressions, indicates that one of the following is not: • gig image • pricing • trust signals, .a.k.a. reviews So to all the sellers who come here and ask why while they get impressions, they get few clicks, if any, the answer is: look into the gig's thumbnail/video, your pricing when compared to other sellers and what you offer plus your reviews. In case of a brand new gig, just ignore the "reviews" part. If your clicks are decreasing or non-existent, then that tells Fiverr that your gig is an under-performer. Very few gigs can survive that without editing and tweaking. It's just how this works. But if it does gets clicks and does not get sales, that's even worse. It tells Fiverr that something is seriously wrong with your gig. So here comes Pro tip #1: So hopefully by now, you have a fairly basic guide of how to diagnose your gig, after it is published. The Good Stuff Now I know I mentioned some spicy insider's information, so here it comes. All of the above performance indicators, are taken into consideration for a very brief window in time. Which is why if your initially published gig, is failing any of the above check points, it will soon either stop being served as a result, or get de-indexed (is that a word?) altogether. So this si why people see their gigs analytics reaching 0 at some point. That gig spanned its wings, hopped in the air for a hot minute and then crashed and burned. My advice is as follows: don't be afraid. The current Fiverr engine is waaaaay more responsive than what we were working 2-3 years ago. Editing your gig, and trial and error will not hurt you in any way. The only time you may need to dread editing your gig and failing, is when your gig is getting you lots fo sales or if you got one of Fiverr's special badges, like "Fiverr's choice". You don't change a winning team. So that's the only instance when you want to think twice about editing your stuff. And here's where it gets "spicy": If your gig gets an order, from a buyer who saw your gig, clicked on it, liked what they saw and bought it, your gig gets a brand new type of rating, because that series of actions will spike your conversion rate. And before people start getting the wrong idea: you can't trick Fiverr by having your friends/family/alter ego click on or even worse, order your gig. Fiverr knows when this is organic, or when it is suspicious in any way. So some sellers on here, were met with success right off the bat, not because of a trick or hack. Their gig was relevant, their positioning was sound and they were priced reasonably in regards to their value proposition/market. So any organic orders and a high conversion rate, is one of those heavily weighted attributes on your gig's performance calculation formula. And I recently discovered another one. But before I get into that... Here comes Pro tip #2: The "Even Better" Stuff There's a metric that follows your average price. (again remeber how most of my findings on Fiverr 3.0 was me just checking what numbers Fiverr shares with us?) So here's how that attribute works. If a buyer looks for a "logo design" gig, and I am just as relevant as another seller, we both get presented to the buyer as search results. Let's say for argument's sake, that our reviews are fairly similar. Or better yet, the other seller has 2,000 reviews more than me. (crazy, right?) IF I have a higher average price than my competitor, I will out-perform them and therefore appear higher up in the search results page. So if my competitor is selling their gig at an average of $55 and I am making $65 a pop, then I win. Just to clarify: this is NOT the actual price of the gig, but the average sales price, either via packages+extras or custom offers. So it doesn't matter what the price tag is. Someone might be selling at $5/$10/$15 packages, but for whatever reason their average price goes up to $100 via extras and custom offers. That's one more thing you don't know about other sellers but you know for yourself. Conclusion I need to wrap this up, as it started as a mini-article, and I think I need to look an epub publisher for this. 🙂 The first half of this post was meant to be a guide to all the sellers who come here on a daily basis, asking about their impressions and clicks. I also hope this sheds some light into what that checklist should be before you even consider to publish a new gig. The second half of the post is just to briefly touch upon how dynamic and complex this whole "performance" thing is. I havent's even mentioned profile performance indicators, buyer behaviour, promoted gigs and Business profiles, and already this post became too complicated and too long to read and digest in one sitting. So let's keep the conversation going, and share this post to any sellers who ask questions about "ranking" and impressions, etc. Feel free to share your experience, questions and success or failures with your gigs when you first published them. Maybe we can help each other by exchanging points of view. Edit 1: Not 5 seconds passed and I already got a private message about someone’s gigs being “deranked” and how I can help them with “SERP”. Which reminded me something important I forgot to include: the above post treats this one gig creation as if in a vacuum. Meaning if you have several gigs that all of them are extremely similar (a big No-No) or have been reported or break ToS, no new gig will ever perform well as your account is shadow-banned, for lack of a better term.
  2. I joined Fiverr since 2020, presently 2nd level seller. Less than 6 months after, my gigs went to the last pages on search, with impressions less than 30, almost no clicks. I've done a lot to improve on it. Changed gig title, description, tags severally without good result. scanty orders I've been getting is through repeated orders. I would like my gig to be viewed, scrutinized to find areas I've been making mistakes and need to improve upon: https://www.fiverr.com/jomakins/be-your-christian-ebook-writer-book-editor-and-ghost-writer https://www.fiverr.com/jomakins/be-your-christian-ebook-writer-book-editor-and-ghost-writer Thank you all.

  21. Hello experts, I do hope you are getting well !!! This is Alauddin, web developer & designer expert in WordPress, Shopify, Wix & Squarespace. I have completed 50+ projects (side by side my job) (I was an It officer at an accessories company, I lost my job in the corona pandemic) in the local market since 2017 most of them WordPress-related. I opened my Fiverr account in December 2019 and completed 1 job, after that I could not continue my work in Fiverr due to personal reasons. From today I want to continue my Fiverr regularly. I would like to develop my career as a freelancer, I have enough time to work here. How can I achieve my goal as a freelancer? Please suggest to me your better experience to build up my freelance career. How can I get a job as soon as possible? I do hope your valuable opinion help to build my freelancer career, Please consider me. Please see details my fiverr profile & GIGs https://www.fiverr.com/mdalauddin2019?up_rollout=true Thanks & best regards Alauddin.
  22. Hi, I hope you are well. I am facing a problem which is my gig is not improve. Please check my gig first: https://www.fiverr.com/share/90wZxK Can you gig me some suggestion please how Can I improve my gig and I can rank my gig? I am waiting for you suggestion. So please help me. Thank you.
  23. I joined Fiverr back in 2017. In this period of working, I have completed nearly 500+ projects with 380 ratings. With $92 of the average selling price, 67% of my order was rated. I was earning a pretty handsome amount monthly. On a fine day In August 2020, I lost my gig ranking. It has happened after a cancellation. Well, Fiverr doesn't like a cancellation. I have been struggling since then. I have made several changes to my gig Like, Adding Videos, Updating gig images, descriptions, Optimizing SEO. But, I never noticed any improvement in my impression. Look like I got sentenced by the Fiverr algorithm. I only have old clients now. I have researched a lot and learn that there is no way to bit the Fiverr algorithm. Only one thing can bit it and, that is consistency. Do your best job consistently. Let Fiverr will notice you. Your gig will stand out automatically. At this stage, I am trying my best to maintain good works and be on top again. I am sure I will be back in business very soon.
