Search Tags - Update


We’re always looking for new ways to help match potential buyers with sellers who can help them achieve their goals.

In the coming months, we’re planning to enhance the way search identifies your Gig, and decide if it’s relevant to the buyers searching for services. With this update we’ll start focusing on the search tags that define your service.

This update is very important as it can affect your Gig position in search results. Using relevant search tags can help buyers find you faster (so they can place an order!) so choose them wisely.

Before we apply the new method, we wanted to give you some time to update and add the right tags for you and your Gig. You should go update on the Gig edit page (it’s called “search tags”). You’ll get a more detailed notice when we have a release date for this change.

Make sure you visit our dedicated Academy article that explains more about search tags and what you should consider before choosing any.

If you have questions, please post below in comments.

Do you know what tags are for?

:thumbsup: for the heads up! :slight_smile:
(see what I did there?)


hi there! well, I am a brand new comer and my page keeps on disappearing even though it is active!! Might this be due to the new search tag system,? I use:

my profile came up just once, and now can’t find it again!


wow! Just read this. “We use complex algorithms in order to determine where & when Gigs will show up in search” but… if I don’t show up, how am i going to find some work? It’s pretty straight forwards as well, as far as search go! I already feel; like giving up.


Hello, I am working on fiverr since long time and I was struggled too much to rank my gig up, But since last 3 weeks I am facing an issue that my gig is shoeing in just one search category (Superb whiteboard animation) not showing in multiple categories like (whiteboard animation, whiteboard animation video, Amazing whiteboard animation, professional whiteboard animation, etc) my gig was showing in these categories 3 weeks before. I have contact the customer center multiple times but they are saying that everything is fine in your gig. I can’t if everything is fine then why my gig is not showing in other categories too like showing 3 weeks before, I really worked hard to raise up my gig ranking. Please suggest me what should I do?



Then title tag will not appear for search result?? :scream:


@katchakatia, @usman_ameen and @fahimulkarim I would suggest reading through the Academy page that was referenced here and try some things out with your search tags. Fiverr has been working hard on the search page for some time and it’s great they are informing sellers with some steps to take. Before jumping to worries, questions and assumptions, though, I’d try things out and see how it goes! :slight_smile:


Okay I will check now. Thank you for reply.


@mjensen415 OK, here’s my trouble with these search tags: if I use “seo audit” and “seo optimization” Fiverr is showing me "excessive use of terms ‘seo’ " - how is 2 excessive? :neutral_face: Three I’d understand, but 2 as well?


it will effect on all sellers, mean no comparison between new arrival seller and top rated seller, it’s all depend on tags?


Thank you for notifying us before any changes were made!


As a buyer, I’m not sure if I’m onboard with this.

There are amazing sellers who may not read the forum or are ESL. They may not know to do this, giving an advantage to some. Those that read and understand this may not be the best qualified.

My biggest frustration is getting unqualified sellers who disguise themselves with good reviews (some fake, some real) and correct tags.

I realize you and sellers care about tags, understandable.

I, as a buyer, just want the most qualified on page one.


I think it’s very important to notice what this doesn’t say. it doesn’t say that search tags will be the only search criteria. Is says that it “can affect” your gig position, but doesn’t say that it absolutely will or that other factors aren’t involved. It also says that the use of relevant search tags “can help buyers find you faster.” That implies that search tags could be a part of the process when buyers are looking for sellers and good tags might speed that up. It doesn’t openly say that sellers won’t be found by other means like filters, featured status, possibly level and the other things that have long influenced rank like delivery turnaround, ratings, etc.

Since this is also a new thing, there is no way to be sure that it won’t be tweaked many times. :slight_smile:


Please on tag section at least make sure we can add 10 tags according to search. That will be a great help for our gigs.


I myself would like to place more then Five tags… Wait… Five (tags) on Fiverr… oh I see what they did there! :sunglasses::joy:

My gig impressions are dropping real fast

if dozen of users will use the same tag, for example VECTOR in my case, will it be sorted how?

Because the last topics related to search and fiverr CS, will it be based on gigs performance?

With the long discussions had here at fiver forum related to search system, right now the search seems is based in nothing, the search is basically frozen, no refresh.

So based in tags and gig performance would be great for those who are doing a good work.

Please let me know



Saw your other post about Testing Search Placement Algorithm.

Topic = Testing Our Search Placement Algorithm

I haven’t got chance to reply there because the topic was closed already.

Search issue still persists.

This problem started happening since November 2016 onwards.

Since then fiverr search is acting very weird.

Currently its not showing results the way it should

For example in RELEVANCE filter its showing non rated gigs or gigs who has done 1 or 2 orders on the first pages.

In Avg customer rating you will see the gigs who are not even rated on first pages of search results, But it should show the gigs who are highly rated. Currently its not.

Whereas it should show highly rated gigs in Avg Customer rating.

And in Relevance filter it should show gigs by rating + gig title + tags etc.

Currently its doing no calculations i think.


thanks sharing this info :slight_smile:


Great News.Thank You very Much.:+1:
