As the title said, your usage of words of the search terms of your gigs will impact your sales, especially the difference between the usage of US and UK English wording. This is what happened to me:
I have a gig which offered watercolour portrait drawing. As I’m more familiar with the UK English, I use “watercolour” as one of my search term. However, FIverr search algorithm didn’t consider “watercolour” to be associated with “watercolor” (US used watercolor instead) as one word. Thus, since Fiverr is heavily based on US market, my gigs didn’t appear on the “watercolor” search page but instead, only appeared on “watercolour” page. Even being said so, if you put “watercolour” as the search term, Fiverr will force auto-corrected it as “watercolor”, and thus my gig still wouldn’t appear.
I’ve just realised it recently, and I immediately change my search terms for my gigs to include both “watercolor” and “watercolour”. I hope I will help anyone who might having the same problem.
English is hard.
If anyone can come out with list of words which might causing this kind of issue, please include them here so we can help other sellers (or maybe buyers). Of course, it’s only apply to words which relevant to Fiverr market.
- watercolor (US) / watercolour (UK)
- watercolor drawing (US) / watercolour drawing (UK)
- center (US) / centre (UK)
