I actually have been wondering how the fiverr search works, I see lots of new arrivals and People with just single reviews appearing up above my own Gig. And i realised that they don’t have super keywords, or even level 1 sellers yet. Some of them haven’t even sold Gigs in over a year, yet they are on the first page of search. This is really confusing; what really is the criteria for ranking high up on search. I’ve been on Fiverr for almost a month, and i have sold 4 Gigs with 5-star ratings for each. Gurus on Fiverr please your thoughts are welcome.
No one has the answer to your question aside from fiverr staff and they keep it a secret.
If anyone comes along and acts like they have the answer don’t believe it.
Search produces you the results in two ways. You will see the recommended sellers. It includes new sellers and featured seller in the top rows. If you go by rating/reviews, you will not see these new sellers but sellers having enough feedback.
