I hope you are all doing good.
I’ve been following search result posts here on Forum for like a month. I found many people with thousands of reviews saying their gig is not searchable.
My gig was also not in search for more than 2 months. I could only find it using local filter, online sellers, and my title, and that too where no buyers will reach.
Even if I write gig title, my gig was not in search results until the last page. Only local seller filter worked the most - showing my gig on last page too.
Fortunately, 2 days ago I can now find myself again using my gig title and main keyword (sales are still low, I will improve within a month as Gig is now searchable).
The thing is, now my gig is in search, it will start improving as I complete orders and will rank on multiple keywords.
What did I do?
Well, I completed 100+ orders of my regular buyers within the last 60 days
but it didn’t work. So, it’s not about sales. You can just pray that the algorithm somehow notices your account and put it back in search pages. Nor does it have anything to do with performance, because all of my gigs were down.
So, 5-6 days ago I somehow got an order on my gig from a new buyer. A buyer I have never worked with before. I completed the order successfully and the next day, my gig was back in search. After a few hours, I got messages from new clients and I’m already discussing their projects.
Here is what I suggest:
- Change your gig tags, update the description and edit your gig as you see best.
Note: After making changes, do not change your gig for at least 3 weeks.
Use buyer requests to get orders from new buyers. New buyers can influence your gig and make the algorithm notice your activity.
I suggest do not change your title, if your gig was ranking beforehand with the same title, it will be ranked again.
Thank you. I hope you all get a lot of orders.
