Want to rank your gig on Fiverr’s first page but don’t know how?

I know how it feels…

And I also know exactly how to turn that situation around.

This guide will share with you the same tricks other sellers use to make their gigs rank high.

Tricks that work very well in 2019.

The biggest problem most new sellers face on Fiverr is the inability to rank their gigs to the the first page.

When search queries are made, their gigs will be nowhere to be found among the results.

Some wait for days, weeks, and even months without making any sales.

Eventually, they give up and delete their accounts.

Here’s what most people keep telling you…

In order to rank your gig to the first page and make sales, you to need use a nice description, profile picture & video, stay online and so on.

They are all true..

You need to create an awesome gig, but it doesn’t stop there.

I referred a couple of people to Fiverr; but it was the same complaint.

They neither got contacted by buyers nor made any sales—until they eventually gave up on Fiverr.

I was surprised why it happened that way, since I’ve heard a lot of people say Fiverr is one of the best sites to get Freelance jobs.

I experimented with the Fiverr system to see for myself.

I used the best Gig description the world could ever imagine, added the best quality video ever, downloaded the Fiverr mobile app and stayed online 24/7.

But guess what… It didn’t work!

Absolutely zero sales after 2 full months. Yeah… I was that patient. I wanted to prove a point.

I wanted to understand how the system worked.

Why many new sellers battle to make a single sale; whereas, some other sellers get up to 50 queued gig orders.

Phew!

50 queued orders?

Yeah… I’ve seen that before.

People who get that numerous number of orders will be most likely involved in reselling ordered gigs for profit.

Not that you should be jealous of them.

They worked hard to get there.

The only problem I have, though, is the fact that no one in the Fiverr community ever shares the real secret tricks they use in ranking their gigs.

All they do is refer you back to the on page gig optimization tips (poof! boring).

They don’t tell you how they ranked their gig to the first page, remained on the first page, and how they survive bullied 1 star ratings from buyers.

Fiverr is the most popular Freelance site in the United States.

Many people depend on it full time—while many new freelancers are looking to replicate that same feat.

People are looking to quit their 9-5 jobs, work online wherever and whenever they want, and have enough quality time to spend with loved ones.

It becomes disappointing when they are not able to achieve that.

But not anymore..

This guide will show you how to rank your Fiverr gig and stay ranked.

High enough to make a decent amount of sales—even if you started a gig in an overcrowded category.

If you want your gigs to rank high on Fiverr, here are some tips to help you achieve that:

1. Carryout proper on page SEO

Many new sellers are not aware of the fact that there’s something like SEO (Search Engine Optimization) on Fiverr.

They just go ahead and create a gig description without including keywords.

If you really want to rank high on Fiver, then you need to carryout a lot of on page optimization.

It is highly important to do so.

Here are the ways you can carryout on page optimization on Fiverr.

Use the right keywords in gig description

SEO on Fiverr is just like blogging.

If you don’t include the right keywords to your blog posts, Google won’t send you any visitors.

Also, to get targeted traffic on Fiverr, you need to include all the variation of your keywords in your description.

What are keywords?

Keywords are the popular search queries buyers are likely to type in the Fiverr search box when they are in search of freelance workers in any category.

Search for services on Fiverr

Let’s take logo design for instance.

A person visiting Fiverr in search of a logo designer will most likely search for the following words:

  • logo design
  • 3D logo design
  • graphics design
  • design logo
  • logo designer, and many more..

Those words buyers search for when they are in search of a logo designer are called keywords.

When writing your description, make sure you use the deferent variations of those keywords while still maintaining creativity.

Add keywords to tags

Fiverr allows you to use up to 5 gig tags. Make sure you use them appropriately. Enter all the variations of the keywords buyers are likely to search for when they are looking for freelancers in your sub-category.

Fiverr tags

And hit the save & continue button.

2. Increase your gig impressions

The earlier a gig gets visitors, the better the chances of it ranking high.

That’s the first step to getting a good rank on Fiverr.

You need to give your gig some early exposure.

How do you do that?

It’s easy..

Promote your gigs.

I made a list of 6 places you can promote your gig for free and attract early traffic, and possibly a lot of sales.

There are a lot of free tools online that can help you generate dummy impressions.  I, however, do not recommend using any tool.

It’s a dark practice and can land you in hot water.

3. Make your first sale as quickly as possible

Now, that’s the hard part:

Making your first sale…

New Freelancers always battle with making first sales on Fiverr.

You can do that by making the most of the first opportunities you get.

Make sure you always check for buyer requests and send them offers.

Your offer needs to be eye-catching—because you’ll be competing against freelancers with better seller ratings.

The biggest challenge you may face, however, is that 99% of buyers won’t purchase your Gig if they don’t see any positive reviews by previous buyers.

Nobody wants to be the first to test a new Freelancer and lose their hard-earned $5.

LOL.

Buyers are surprisingly very careful with their $5.

That’s why you may need to get a friend of yours to buy your gig and review your account.

You can also create a dummy account, purchase your own gig and give yourself some nice positive reviews.

After all, any money spent will be added to your overall Fiverr earnings during withdrawal.

You must be careful while purchasing your own Gigs, though.

Fiverr doesn’t like that very much.

Even if it gets to enjoy 20% of your profit.

Here’s how to review yourself and stay safe:

  • Don’t generate too many positive reviews in a short span of time.
  • Only review yourself on a service you are well and truly capable of completing.
  • Communicate like real buyers and sellers do.
  • Deliver gig orders in the stipulated delivery date (no hurry).

4. Stay online always

There’s a connection between staying online and getting better gig ranks on Fiverr.

Fiverr algorithms seem to reward those freelancers that stay online with a higher gig rank.

This you must take advantage of if you’re new on Fiverr.

I experimented this with two freelance accounts.

Both accounts had similar optimizations like: keyword density, title, tags.

I kept one of the accounts always logged in, while the other, logged in frequently.

Here’s the result:

The account that stayed logged in got greater impressions, clicks and messages than the other one.

Why’s that?

Most people that visit Fiverr are looking to get urgent jobs done.

And as a result of that they most times click on only account that appear online or use the available now feature.

Fiverr algorithm appears to be very similar with that of Google.

Google rewards pages that get better CTR (Click-Through Rate) with higher page ranks and so does Fiverr.

The Fiverr search even has a filter that allows buyers to only search for freelancers that are online and available to do work.

5. Ensure a good conversion rate

One way to quickly get your gig to the top of Fiverr search results is by working extremely hard and completing a lot of orders.

Do not turn down too many orders.

If possible, don’t cancel any Gig orders.

Fiverr hates order cancellations—because a canceled order means Fiverr doesn’t get to make any profit.

The more orders you complete, the higher up the search results Fiverr will move your gig.

So try to complete a lot of orders in your first few days as a seller.

As a result of your high conversion rate, your gig may even appear among the Featured Gigs.

6. Get loyal customers

Getting loyal customers increases your opportunity of making more sales and getting a higher gig rank.

When you get a good buyer on Fiverr, try to be friendly with them; communicate like a professional; and ultimately, render good services.

As a result of your good services, they will deliberately search for your gig whenever they have another job.

The more people search for and click on your gig, the higher Fiverr algorithms rank your gig.

7. Get promoted to a higher level ASAP

Next time you visit Fiverr, click on any category and observe the sellers that rank on the first page for that category.

First page gigs for translation on Fiverr

When I did that with Writing & Translation >> Translation.

Guess what I observed!

The first page sellers were all Level Two and Top Rated Sellers.

There were only 3 Level One Sellers.

So, If you were hoping to get your New Seller Gig to Fiverr’s first page, it’s as good as hoping to hack the entire website.

What you should strive for when you immediately start selling on Fiverr is to attain either Level Two or Top Rated Seller rank.

As soon as you reach that level, you’ll begin to show up more frequently on the first page.

Furthermore, Fiverr will begin to give you priority support and buyers will begin to respect you even more.

I shared some top secret Fiverr gig ranking tricks with you.

Using those same tricks, all the new sellers I recently introduced to Fiverr were able to get their Freelance careers up and running.

I hope this guide helps you rank your Fiverr gig and enable you make more sales.

  1. Thanks for this great Content Stephen.

    Fiverr is becoming more competitive this days unlike before. I made my first thousands of dollars on Fiverr in year 2015 until I had little problem.

    But, I want to start fiverr again as to support my business and to help me meet new client as a digital Marketer.

    Can you check my gig out?

  2. Great tips, Matt.

    I’ve written about this topic too and it’s absolutely my favorite thing. One more thing that I think could be possible for the ranking of a Gig is possibly the Average Selling Rate of the seller.

    Ever since I had my Average Selling rate go above $70, my amount of sales might not have increased but I have big orders mostly that are about $100. Maybe you can try that one out as well.

  3. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful trick to get high rank in Fiverr. I followed you guideline to optimized my gigs a month ago and now my gig on 1st page.

  4. Can we use our business name in Fiverr instead of our names or a made up ones as it seems so many do? Would it help if we bought each others gigs and left reviews to get our gigs moved to the first page? I’d be willing to spend $5 to help someone who will in turn help me. Would they notice if we did this. I don’t want to get kicked off. I’m just getting ready to list my first gig. Thanks for all the great info, Matt.

    • Hi Joan, you can do all that. But as for buying each other’s gigs, Fiverr may not notice due to the high number of Freelancers. However, you must do it carefully and sparingly.

  5. I am telling you brother, the same is my case. At least I know what the problem is now .. Thanks admin… This is very helpful

  6. Bro u’re the real mvp
    This is insightful!
    I heard pple also buy reviews, i dnt kno hw tho…biko explain. Thanks

    • People buy reviews, to make their first sales and probably reduce the effect of unjustly earned bad reviews. This is, however, not allowed by Fiverr. Therefore, anyone caught doing that may end up getting punished for it.

  7. I open a fiverr account long time ago…but i don’t know how to marketing and do ranking fiverr top page…I was confutation that which direction i follow. At list i get this sagetion and thank’s for help me.

  8. This site is just a awesome resource for someone like me who is fight for there first sales. I am just trying to follow your every tips.Thank you

    • You’re welcome Jack. Yeah.. A lot of people don’t share, and that’s a huge problem. However, I’ve seen a lot of useful tips on the Fiverr forum. Do visit it once in a while.

  9. Thanks so much for this tip.

    I can help you with copy-paste, big data entry, PDF convert, Typing, retyping, editing, internet research.

    • I have reviewed that there are no rules against advertising Fiverr off-site, and in fact, Fiverr team encourage it as per Fiverr help the center discussion. I researched on top Fiverr Seller to know that they market their gigs and profile outside of the Fiverr and the Fiverr algorithm Boost ranking.
      I recommended you that you should follow top-level Fiverr Profiles mentioned below to increase ranking, Just check backlinks of them by moz.
