First post. Would like to know if other people experience this, or if this is a ‘known’ thing.
I’m finding that search in Fiverr is flawed, almost to the point of being utterly un-useful. Let me give you our example.
Now to be clear, we rank on the first page for this term - so this isn’t a moan ‘as such’. Yes it would be great if we were ranking higher, and this is why I find the below so frustrating.
I search for the term ‘British Female Voice Over’. You would think, as a human reading that phrase, that I’m looking for someone who can provide me with a British Female Voice Over right?
Yet when I search, I find a bunch of correct results, but within them (some as high ranking as number 3!) I find Dutch, Turkish, Italian, Norwegian and SEVERAL male results. And not a ‘we offer Female but also offer Male’ type gig… These are LITERALLY guys who probably want their gigs to appear in the correct search results too! Surely they can’t be getting traffic from showing up in a female voice over search?
Now, forget that we’re trying to rank our British Female Voice Over gig for a moment. As I say, we’re on the front page anyway, so it’s not so much about that. But as a buyer, surely this is a TERRIBLE user experience? Google understands that giving people what they want as quickly and accurately as possible is key, and for this term at least, I can only imagine that Buyers are having an awful experience. You can basically disregard half of the first page of results as irrelevant. If I was shopping for a logo, and found that 50% of the results on the first page were for menu design, I’d probably leave the site and go look elsewhere.
Am I the only one seeing this? What’s the experience like in your niche? And does anyone know if this is a bug/glitch or something that Fiverr are/should be aware of? I did search, but couldn’t see anything recent that this was specific.
