Making money with Fiverr is an easy and fun way to become financially independent in a very short period of time.
Still, many of us find it so hard to make even one dollar on Fiverr while others earn thousands of dollars through Fiverr in a month.
What is it that makes them thousands of dollars? I would say the skills. Yes, exactly the skills make them able to get their Fiverr gigs ranked to the top of the search results. These skills are not simply what they sell on Fiverr. It’s the skill of making oneself stands out of the crowd.
When I talk about the gig SEO in this article, so it would mean that how to get your gig ranked on top on Fiverr’s internal search results page. That has nothing to do with web searches, Google, and other search engines.
Generally, what matters in the ranking of a certain gig involves a brief description and its relevancy with the title of the gig, video insertion and proper usage of keywords. However, optimization of the Fiverr’s profile is also very important for getting more orders.
In this post we will move from general factors to secrets, so don’t underestimate the general factors. They are the backbone of your Fiverr’s business. Let’s move to the process step by step.

The Title of Your Fiverr’s GIG
The title is the most important part of the gig, which I would say, contribute 80% in the ranking of a gig. Titles having persuasive words may lure a buyer to click on your gig, but not necessarily would help you rank your gig. So it’s necessary to use the proper search term in your gig’s title to make it visible in the search results.
For example: If you offer writing services on Fiverr and make a gig with the title that “I will write an enlightening article about anything you want.”
Would it make any difference? Logically, it seems perfect, but with the Ranking perspective, it worths nothing. You could not expect orders on such type of gig. No matter how beautifully you make it. Because what a buyer would search will be bit different. So you have to consider what the people are searching.
If you modify the title to “I will write an OUTSTANDING article of 500 words” then whenever, a buyer searches for “500 words article” term, it is probable that the buyer will be able to see your gig in the search results.

Images or Video
If it really comes down to the comparison between the images and video. Then the video will always get the award.
The role of an image or video is not more than increasing the conversion rate of your gig. But it also contributes indirectly to the ranking of your gig. If your video or image is attractive enough to make orders, then you will also get ratings, which is one of the ranking factors and discussed below in detail.
Therefore, never underestimate the power of video or images. Because even if you get ranked high in searches, but your gig is not attracting the buyer to click on it so it is of no use. If you can upload a video of yourself where you talk about your skills, service and experience, then it will definitely make the difference. It helps in making your gig more personalize.
If you can’t upload a video. It’s perfectly fine. But then you have to upload visually optimize images to your gigs which can, at least, define your service and attract buyers to click on your gig.

The Description of your gig should promise something that can inspire the buyer.
For example, if you are selling SEO services and start the description with the sentence that “Get 50 backlinks quickly in just $5.” This is one sentence that inspires the buyer to immediately place the order on your gig. Because it’s not only promising of 50 backlinks but more importantly, it talks about the end results in which the buyer is more interested.
Moreover, using the proper search terms and keywords in the description that are related to the title of your gig and service will help you to get a high ranking.
The tags have the power to show your gig in different search results. Take your time to identify the related tags for your gig and do mention them. Tags are the spice in the meal. Using a variety of keywords as tags helps you rank your gig in minutes.
For example: If you are trying to rank your writing gig. It’s obvious that you would already have mentioned the keyword in the title and the description of the gig. So here comes the role of tags. You have to mention the following keywords as tags in your gig for greater exposure and ranking. Take a look on them below.
- Content writing
- Business writing
- Creative writing
Using such type of keywords in tags will help boost your Fiverr SEO right away. Because each of the tags is representing a separate category. So the chances are that your gig becomes visible in all of these categories.

The secret sauce of ranking your gigs in a day
Now let’s move to the creative part of the Fiverr SEO. These are the proven techniques which helped me personally getting my gigs ranked in one day.
More views mean more visibility in search results
More views make your gig more visible in the Fiverr’s search results. It is the first sign to know that whether your gig is ranking or not. A well-ranked gig will automatically receive more views, but if you are not getting enough views, then you can increase the views of your gig yourself so it will give a positive signal to the Fiverr’s algorithm to pick this gig up.
It shows that people are interested in your gig and viewing it. You can drive real visitors to your gig, which I am going to show you below in a minute that how to drive real visitors. However, I have noticed over the time that driving 300 views to your gig boost up your ranking in one day. If you can manage more visitors. That would be good. But if you can’t, then 250-300 views are good enough to rank your Fiverr gig.
Do not Earn money only, Earn Good Ratings too
Once you start getting orders, the first thing you need to do is to deliver the quality service to the buyers and encourage them to leave 5-star reviews on your gig. It’s essential. Why? Because it gives positive signals to Fiverr that this gig is performing better and liked by buyers so it has the potential to grow substantially and in return your gig receive higher ranking in Fiverr.
Promote your gig outside Fiverr
Now it comes the part where you will come to know how you can really drive the real visitors. You can use social media as a tool to bring as much traffic as you want. Share your gig’s link to the number of Facebook groups and pages. You can also post a link on your Facebook profile and ask your friends and family to visit and view your gig.
Whereas, twitter is more efficient in the case of links. Write a short & a sweet tweet about your gig that what are you offering on Fiverr and include the link in your tweet. No matter if you have very few or zero followers on Twitter.
Just by inserting hashtags can broaden the reach of your tweet. Always include hashtag #fiverr in your tweet and other related hashtags that can define your service. For instance, if you have an SEO gig. So, always use hashtags like the ones mentioned below:
