  1. Are doing fake impressions and clicks will improve my gigs rank? For example, imagine you have a bunch of VPNs and open your gigs with different IP addresses, maybe making 50 impressions daily. Will my gigs get up rank? Or can Fiverr know which IP is real or VPN IP?
  2. Hey gang! A disclaimer: The following post/article is not an official Fiverr statement. It’s a summary of my personal observations over how Fiverr works and I am sharing because I noticed that more and more sellers come here, stating that they “lost their ranking”, or claiming that their gigs are "all 5 stars" but they can't get any messages/sales. This is an effort to provide them with some answers and some food for thought. Hold up. Fiverr 3.1? I know you were probably expecting something a bit more dramatic, but this is not a brand new thesis. This is me revisiting my previous one, and updating it after seeing a few new things popping up and some previous assumptions being confirmed as either off-base or not as important as I previously thought. "Ha! I knew it, you were wrong!" Well actually no. Let me preface this by saying that I am revisiting my original thesis, not because it was proven wrong. In fact the core premise of my past article, still stands true. Fiverr favors performance, and is still trying to get a perfect match between buyers and sellers. So it's still about relevancy, performance and quality. The reason why I am revisiting the thesis is because I have stumbled upon new evidence that tell me there have been a few updates during the past two years. Not an overhaul mind you, but several "Quality of Life" updates and additions. Let's talk about indicators OK so we are all familiar with our profile's metrics. These are the actual metrics that Fiverr chose to reveal to us sellers in an attempt to provide us with some crucial performance indicators. This is actually the original system Fiverr put into place back in the "2.0" era, when it needed to be able to qualify sellers and update SERP dynamically. Fiverr 1.0 only had the thumbs up/down rating system and other than the actual level sellers and the occasional reporting/flagging by buyers for inappropriate behavior, Fiverr had very little to go on when it came to understanding who was a good freelancer and who wasn't. So it would make sense for a seller at any given time, to just look at them and go: "I must say, I am doing a jolly good job! Let me pat myself on the back before I deliver this order and get my 5.0 star review!" Right? Wrong. Two systems colliding As you can probably guess, Fiverr grew even more. And what usually happens when a company grows this much and at a certain rate, its initial systems are no longer able to keep up with growth pains that come up. So a new system was put into place. It didn't replace the old system, but it is working alongside it, in an effort to help Fiverr understand performance. This new system is essentially there to give more data points to Fiverr and help qualify certain actions. That new system started off with the "buyer satisfaction rate". That's not an unfamiliar term nowadays, as Fiverr employees started actually talking about this openly for the past year or so. I talked about this on my previous article, but now it's not just a rumor or the ramblings of a mad man, Fiverr is actually talking about this, thus confirming part of my thesis. There is a formula in place that makes sure the system get valuable information on whether a seller is performing well or not. So what's new? Well, that buyer satisfaction formula is apparently more extensive now, and a lot more complicated. Furthermore, there are now two different systems in place, working towards the same goal. One system is there to determine whether or not your profile is in good standing and then there's a different system in place that actually grades your gigs individually. (the average Fiverr seller's reaction when they hear of a new performance rating system) Now before you start grabbing your pitchforks, let me explain why that is potentially a good thing. First of all, I have been rather vocal about how this new system -no matter how imperfect it may be- is at least allowing for the possibility of recovery. So when a seller's performance slips, it just takes some time after which you are back in the game. It's a more forgiving system altogether, or it seems as it was designed to allow for more margins of error. But let's get back on track. The two systems are not fully aligned. Seems like the profile performance metrics are refreshed on a 60-day window, whereas the gig's performance metrics are calculated on a 90-day window. I don't know why that is, but a good guess would be that they are just stacking different systems on top of the old build so they can't just nuke previous choices that used to make sense 4 years ago. I am taking a deep dive into the macro-economy of the system, in an attempt to help de-mystify the issues I see popping up on the forum on a daily basis. People come here and complain that things are A-OK with their clients and reviews, but they either lost promoted gigs eligibility or their gigs are not "ranking" the same anymore. (notice the overdramatic air quotes when I mention ranking) Fiverr's systems are opaque. That's by design. So I understand that it's frustrating. But on the other hand, I have been here since 2013, where things were less complicated and you could simply piece things together by landing the right CS agent on your support ticket. And let me tell you: people used to game the living crap out of the old system. (Me after realizing public reviews are now worthless) Which is basically why Fiverr constantly makes changes. Reviews were exploited -people still to this day pressure their buyers for positive reviews-, the number of sellers exploded since 2019, and Fiverr constantly expanding across more verticals. Fiverr is trying to come up with a legitimate way to understand two main things: • Buyer behavior • Seller performance But how can one improve if the metrics are not opaque? This is where this whole "indicators" business comes in. We need to look at what the system is telling us. Stop focusing on what the system is not telling you. That was a big part of my original thesis that people focused on and tried to debunk/discredit it. I talked about speed and gave some specific examples of indicators that Fiverr has subtly left there for us to see, and people were very keen on rejecting them outright. On this update I chose not to focus on the indicators as much, as a lot of people were focusing on whether or not they existed and/or utilized by the system. Instead I want to focus on the bigger picture, and some good practices for sellers on Fiverr in 2022. This may be a good place however to brag about how I was right when I said that Fiverr likes speed and favors sellers who respond quickly. As since I made that claim in my previous article, Fiverr actually came forward with the "order response rate" which actually shows you if you responded fast enough when a new order was submitted. (me after Fiverr updated the seller's dashboard proving half of my assumptions to be RIGHT) What does this all mean for us sellers? That's a legitimate question. 1) Well first of all you need to understand that looking at your dashboard metrics and getting 5.0 star reviews from your buyers, is not giving you the whole picture anymore. (It's still important that you keep those metrics as close to perfect as possible, and not getting negative reviews should be the absolute baseline.) 2) It is also important to understand that the "Buyer satisfaction rate" dates back 90 days, so it's a delayed view on your performance. 3) It is also my understanding if multiple orders don't go that great during the same 90-day window, they stack up, meaning things will not improve for your gig's standing until at least one of them is removed from that rolling window. 4) Fiverr no longer looks for just amazing web developers, cool logo designers and Pulitzer-worthy writers when evaluating performance. In fact, Fiverr is not equipped to understand if you are delivering a high quality design or a photo-copy of mashed potatoes. Fiverr is looking for great facilitators. As a seller you should be focusing on your buyer's experience overall as much as you do on your actual craft. 5) The promoted gigs feature is not as simple as I initially suspected it to be. It's actually part of this new complex system that Fiverr has set up, as it is being fed with your gig's performance numbers constantly, in order to only promote the best gigs out there. It is also intertwined with the actual system that understands if you are relevant to what people are searching for. So when you lose eligibility and can no longer promote a gig you used to be able to promote, this is an indicator of a "buyer satisfaction rate" slip-up, most likely on a gig performance level. By then of course it's too late to act upon it, but it is an indicator nonetheless. 6) Relevancy is calculated using a more complicated formula now. ASP (average selling price) on your gigs, is also now being calculated when determining where your gig is placed on search results, past performance matters more and is actually used to project future outcomes when Fiverr matches you with buyers, and this new Fiverr briefs feature is also trying to guide buyer's behavior and eliminate the need to search altogether. 7) I noticed that the "returning buyer" metric is not just a nifty little animated badge you get on your profile to serve as a trust signal toward your prospects. It is actually a brand new metric that Fiverr uses to calculate performance. I was initially super-annoyed by it, as I am a Pro seller who has a higher barrier of entry due to pricing alone, so when I realized that Fiverr was valuing return buyers, I'm not going to lie, it felt like it was game-over for me. But I did try to assess the situation and when it became apparent to me that it's a brand new metric that Fiverr will use to evaluate me, I pivoted and adjusted my gig strategy to compensate and stay relevant. (me going back to the drawing board every time there's an algorithm update) I have a birthday cake to go to, turning 41 today, so I will try to sum things up and give you some things to think about. Fiverr is not a perfect system, nor does it try to be a fair system. (more on that on a future post) It is doing its best to evaluate millions of gigs and hundreds of thousands of active sellers, to make sure it creates a perfect match to buyers that have their credit card at hand, ready to spend money. It is constantly adding metrics, tools and data points, in an effort to perfect it formula and adapt to ever-changing buyer/seller behavior. Whether we like it or not, by being a part of this platform, we have to realize that there is a system in place and that the only way to grow as a business and be favored by this system, is to understand its rules and what the system is trying to achieve. Fiverr is making huge strides in understanding and mapping out buyer behavior, which is a good thing for us sellers. But the most complicated part of Fiverr right now, is the system trying to evaluate seller performance on so many levels. OK so I kept talking about a really complex system, without being able to dive into as much details as I would like. I also mentioned that indicators are important, but I also didn't want to have to reply to dozen of messages telling me that "there's no way the system would measure X Frank, that's totally not cool!" But I think I can share this one theory that I have, that is also a really strong indicator to anyone who is willing to research their gigs and past performance. Unfortunately, this is only for Seller Plus members, as I will mention a tool that is only available to them. So here goes. Seller plus members are able to create special discount coupons, and then offer them to their past clients, in order to create more returning buyers and a stronger relationship between vendor/client. Now here comes the important part: You can't offer coupons willy-nilly. There are apparently some metrics that won't allow you to even see a past buyer in your list when trying to send coupons. And here's my theory: Since the list of past buyers available to you is based on the past 90 days, and since there is a visual indicator right there on the UI telling you that the system picked which buyers you get to see/send the coupons to, what if this is a good way to look into past buyers and figuring out what the system won't tell you: A) either which type of buyer was a good match for your selling profile or B) which past orders affected your buyer satisfaction rate. I am not in any way suggesting that you should rush on your coupons dashboard and try to look at that list to find out which buyers may have left a less than positive exit survey. That's not the case. I am simply saying that if Fiverr is trying to create great matches, and then it sort of/kind of tells you who wasn't a great match, maybe you can put the missing pieces together and see how you can improve moving forward. This has not been proven, nor have I discussed this with anyone on Fiverr. (I don't think I want to do that) I am bringing this up just to give you an example of what an existing indicator may be. Fiverr won't give you the formula, or a straight answer of how performance is calculated, but there are strong indicators peppers in throughout the UI telling you what Fiverr is looking for. Long post over. Welcome to Fiverr 3.1. As always, I am here to answer any questions and feel free to share your experiences! Thank you! 🎂
  3. Hi, I am a new seller on fiverr. I have a very little knowledge about gig rank. Can anyone share how can I optimize my gig and rank it? Advance thanks.
  4. Hi, I am a seller on Fiverr. All my gigs rank down since last month. Now how can I get rank back my gigs again? Thanks
  5. EDIT: Think I posted in wrong section but idk how to delete. For example, I'm offering script coverage. If I search that, I can see a 1 or 2 pages of gigs, most with little to no reviews. However, I can't see if even the most successful sellers are getting any kind of regular business. The number of reviews may be over many years and the 'Last Delivery' seems to show their last delivery across all of their gigs, so it could well be in something completely unrelated. So how do you know if a niche is dead or thriving without access to any analytics other than your own, if you're a new seller who gets no impressions due to poor rank (or because nobody is searching for this in the first place). Looking to arrive at some kind of benchmark what I could expect if I were to start ranking near the top. Thanks
  6. I have published my gigs with specific niche and keyword but still it's not ranking on fiverr. It has been almost 12hrs i have published the gigs but got 00 impressions and clicks.
  7. Hello, My Lovely Beautiful Friends! May I ask you few question and take suggestions from you all. As a newbie, all I want is for ranking up my gig and getting first order. I knew that I must patience, take time for getting order and to be a good gig newbies must take care choosing title, description, keywords and good visual feature images. I think I followed well all those steps. One thing I get confused is some people suggest that as a newbies we should sell our service with low prices first and I respect this suggestions also. But as a web developer I'm not able to sell my services with under $100. I see a lot of sellers sell with even $10, $20, etc..(I Respect Them & No Offense!). But I'm not able to sell with that kind of prices. I'm wrong or I must start with this price? My next question is I should promote my fiverr gig through social medias? (Eg. I'll share my gig to facebook group and give promotion with super discount for getting my first order & good review). Should I do or don't? Fiverr allow to do that? That's all I want to know. Thanks so much for reading. Your suggestions will help me a lot. Take care & Stay safe. With Love, Rafi Tylor(Wordpress Developer & Graphic Designer)

  16. Hey Guys so I think there's a huge problem connected to the cash on advance feature as well as a promoted gig, I had used the cash on advance feature almost 3 times and every time I had used it I don't why but somehow my gig promoted feature must be disabled for months without a significant reason even and then I have to wait for almost a while not know when my promoted gig feature will work once again. keep in mind as the new algorithm right now if your gig is not qualified for promotion no matter how good your rates are or which seller level you even have, it's all started on (Nov 13, 2021) when I used the cash in advance feature and took around an advance worth (1500$ that has to pay with 1700$) after a couple of weeks from this advance I took it back the same problem happened which is my promoted gig feature got disabled. Not only that I almost struggled for around 5-6 months with no order at all as my gig is ranked almost in the last page (Keep in mind when my promoted gig feature is on, my gig is ranked on the first page). Then it's going back again on 5 of the last march, everything seems good and I even start to get around 3-5 orders a day, as well as delivering in time with good quality work and also good ratings back from customers, then a customer just scammed me he orders a video I did exactly what he wants he has requested a cancellation when I told him I will keep to revising the video no matter what but he seemed he wants to scam as I already uploaded the delivery on A google drive link which means he got the video without a fiver protection watermark then I accept the cancellation and all of my rates related to (response time, delivered on time, and so on was 100) expect the Order completion rate after the cancellation, he went down from 100% to 97% or 96% can't remember well (keep in mind it's 98% right now) I contacted the support but no matter what they still giving the same message which is to keep delivering orders from your returned clients and it will be fixed soon and exactly what I'm doing but sadly no matter what nothing changes at all and it's been a month since my promoted gig feature is not working as well as I contacted one of your support team recently and she said that my promoted gig is working just fine, which it's not working at all I will even provide a screenshot as it's not a visual issue from my side or something, I logged in from different browsers but I can still that my promoted gig is not working, lastly guys there a debt of 1700$ that I paid almost 700$ from it, but I don't know why I'm always feeling like Fiverr want to drop me out of the site guys i mean I work here for two Years making good money for both of us as well as this is my full-time job so I take it seriously for sure! P.S: I will provide Screenshots as well to prove some of my words

  24. Hey, I'm Asiri joined Fiverr from Sri Lanka (South Asian island) and I'm a Masters student in Machine Learning and AI. I joined Fiverr in 2021 and it was easy to become level one seller and it took me 4 months for that. My expertise in creating chatbots, ML models and doing automation. My average selling rate is around $20 per gig. I maintain a lower rate because I do not take big projects and my average time to delivery is less than a day. I would like to know that how much time it will take me to become level 2. I really love to hear your ideas and suggestions.
