Search results messed up multiple ways


#1

I have been doing a search on the phrase “love spell”.

Things are not right:

  1. my gig doesn’t show up unless I click on top rated sellers-- otherwise it is missing from search results

  2. I see 8 different gigs from different sellers that all have the same thumbnail

  3. I see other gigs with the same thumbnails also, different sellers

  4. Sometimes I can find my gig by clicking “online” and other times it doesn’t work, does not show up even when I click “online”

  5. Some gigs show up on both the first page, and the second page of search results.

  6. One gig shows up on every page of search results.


#2

I found one as well. A few days go there were 2 pro sellers placed on the first page, last and somewhere in the middle again.

It’s such a mess.


#3

Everything works fine for me and your gig is 1st by relevance.

No idea why you can’t see it.

I haven’t seen any duplicated thumbnails either. :thinking:


#4

That’s a relief, any chance you could get a screenshot? Much appreciated.


#5

Here you go. Now it’s in 2nd row.

I have been monitoring search results intently for the past two months because of a weird issue with one of my gigs. I have noticed search behaving unusually strange over the past 3 days. Gigs I used to see all the time are suddenly no where to be seen. In one search, I couldn’t find any Pro graphic designers even though I know there are several. Then, the next day most of the missing gigs were back.

I wonder if some testing is being done. I do my searches from a different browser, one where I never login to Fiverr, and on a computer with no cookies. I try to simulate a new to Fiverr search experience.

I would love to know if you continue to have trouble seeing your gig. I don’t think it’s just you @misscrystal

Yeah , Yesterday I saw my two gigs on both first and second page. :slight_smile:


#8

Yes, it is. I could not receive any messages or orders from a NEW buyer last two days because my gig appears in 2nd or 3rd page now. My gig used to appear in the top of first page. I don’t understand this. Unfortunately, Fiverr is becoming very unstable.


#9

I just breathed a sigh of relief. Thank you so much.


#10

How to show my gigs on 1st or 2nd pages what i will do ?.


#11

I wish I knew. I don’t have specific rules for how to do it. Fiverr puts those that are good sellers, popular, on the top rows at least in my category.


#12

in my category some poor rating gigs coming at 1st page…don’t know, fiverr guys found something special in that?


#13

yeah it’s big mess in search result. whenever you do ask to them. Answer was like bot reply : our search is world best and random show to different users…blah…blahhh…

But main point : We can’t do anything in that rather than accept as what they are providing :slight_smile:


#14

It happened in the past… all we can do is hope that this issue is going to be solved soon


#15

I can’t even find my gig in my category each time I search for it under the same keywords… and when I do find it it’s behind 200 other gigs with 10 reviews


#16

I thought there was something wrong too because each time I search for one of my gigs it shows up nowhere. However when I search another that one shows up but when I click on it, it only shows that I have only 1 other gig and I have 4 posted.


#17

This is strange… May be other gigs are of same or similar service…


#18

No they are all different. So I’m not so sure whats happening with it. Even searching through the million other gigs its nowhere to be found


#19

You should contact CS.

Does anyone know how long it takes after you un-pause a gig for it to show in search results?
