Hi Everyone
As you all know that know that some very new sellers are have badges like ( Fiverr’s Chioce) or (Rising Talent)
even they have only 2,3 lines of discription and almost no seo but they are still on the top
can anyone help me how these badges are gained?
Thanks

These badges are likely an automatic part of the search engine algorithm. They are awarded – either by Fiverr or the system – according to metrics none of us will ever know. The good news is, however, neither of those badges are necessary in order to become a great seller.

You don’t need a badge to be great. Just be great, and your target customers will take notice.

I can tell you the Fiverr’s Choice badges are probably chosen by a staff member. I had a gig with that and that gig is exceptional in several ways. It’s not just handed out by luck. I think the Rising Talent badge might be the same way. It may be a gig that is outstanding.

Fiverr does look at most gigs. They notice outstanding ones.

Some may indeed be manually given, however, for the most part, I think the “Rising Talent” badges may just be auto-presented to draw attention to new seller gigs – likely an off-shoot of the idea that new sellers get a visibility boost at the start, and then have to fend for themselves like every other seller.

I just don’t see any other reason why many new sellers end up with the “rising talent” badges. How can some new sellers be a rising talent, if they have poorly defined gigs, and no listed portfolios or social proof of the talent the badges claim? This badge seems more random than others, and, I think, may just be a slight-boost format.

This is, of course, just my observation-based opinion. Take it with a grain of salt.

Fiverr’s Editorial Team manually handpicks new Gigs with great potential, and grants them a temporary “Rising Talent” badge, which offers amazing marketplace exposure and credibility.

I didn’t realize there was an entire page describing this badge. I stand corrected.

I think gig price probably has something to do with it (the rising talent badge). It seems like the more expensive gigs without a lot of reviews are more likely to get it, regardless of whether they have someone else’s copyrighted/trademarked content in the gig video.
