Hey fellow freelancers, am Neily Hype, a reggae-dancehall artist and song producer. I offer dj drops services on Fiverr.
I created my Fiverr profile in November 2017, got my first sale one month later. I’ve been getting a few orders every now and then.
I like the experience on Fiverr so far, but one of my main concern is the faultiness of the search results/ranking system. I do Jamaican reggae dj drops, and if I enter “reggae dj drops” in the search bar, the first row in the results might contain a few gigs that offer reggae services (I don’t have a problem with that.) The problem is that there are results in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th row with gigs that are offering dj drops in Spanish, American, Rock etc. All of these gigs are ranked higher than my gig which is specifically offering Reggae dj drops.
If I were a customer searching an online marketplace for reggae dj drops, the moment I start to see
results that are not related to my search, I would assume that there’s no more gigs in the results that’s offering what I want. I personally believe that is how most buyers on Fiverr think too.
My gig title is optimized, gig description is optimized, tags are optimized so I don’t know. Most of my orders currently come from social media promotions.
What are your thoughts on this?
