Does using a lot of tags in your gigs reduce the value of each one?


#1

In other words say you have 2 identical gigs.

Gig 1 has 3 different tags

Gig 2 has 10 different tags (including the 3 gig 1 is using)



Will the tags for gig 1 receive higher priority in search results?


#2

I do believe that the most active gig will show up higher in the search results however why not ad all the tags you use for the similar gigs


#3

That wasn’t my question. Say 2 people are selling design services (both have equally active gigs).

First person only uses the tag design. Second person uses tags design, graphics, animation, ajax, flash, etc.



If a buyer searches for the word design, will the first person’s gig come up first in search results? In other words is there any downside to using a lot of tags instead of a couple very targeted ones.


#4

Also the most active gig coming up top doesn’t seem to be true. For example search the tag “New York”. The first result has never even had a sale…


#5

i always try and use as many tags as i can on my gigs


#6

I think that Fiverr is the only one that knows the exact algorithm that is used for the Fiverr search.



I don’t think any of us can answer this with absolute certainty.

Reply to @arnevb: may I ask how you came to this conclusion? Fiverr definitely does not publish such details about their search algorithms


#8

Reply to @arnevb: sorry but that last comment simply can’t be correct. There’s no way the system can differentiate that way.

Yknow, this was actually discussed in the webinar a few days ago about the tags. They did mention something about less tags being more. I wish I remembered what they said… Im sure the webinar can be downloaded somewhere.
