Explain the search ranking logic please?


#1

Hey!



Could someone please explain how the search ranking works because it doesn’t make ANY sense to me?

If we take this gig as an example: http://www.fiverr.com/FRAGGLESROCK



Sheriff’s Note: It is not cool (or allowed) to call out others on the Forum.


  1. First result when you search “youtube subscribers”.
  2. Gig was made 8 days ago.
  3. Account was made 8 days ago.
  4. Low amount of given subscribers.
  5. Keywords makes no sense what so ever.
  6. 1 review/order in queue.
  7. Account profile isn’t even completed.



    And if we take this gig as another example: http://www.fiverr.com/likenn/give-you-1000-youtube-subscribers-to-your-channel


  8. Nowhere at the result page when you search “youtube subscribers”.
  9. Gig was made 1+ month ago.
  10. Account was 6+ months ago.
  11. High amount of subscribers (same service as above).
  12. Keywords are relevant.
  13. Multiple reviews/orders in queue.
  14. Account profile is fully completed.



    Could someone please explain the logic behind this for me because I can’t understand it?

Would be great if someone could explain this please.

Reply to @bachas85: The funny thing is that I have for example better overall ratings, number of orders per day, number of deliveries per day and higher % of buyers that leave feedback than the channel that I listed (it got removed from the post) yet the system places his gig before mine and other gigs that are even better than mine. Doesn’t make ANY sense at all.

I found nothing that can explain fiverr search algo. Few people says it depends on Rating, Views, SEO, blah blah …

There is likely just as much of a mathematical science to the Fiverr search algorithm, as there is to SEO and Google search rankings.

Reply to @jonbaas: of course there is. But they don’t want us gaming that algo to get better rankings, so they’re not likely to share it with us. just part of doing business
