This article will break down some tips and tricks for how to optimize your Fiverr gig for SEO.

Fiverr is one of the most popular US online marketplaces. It allows freelancers to pitch their products and services in the form of 'gigs' or microjobs on the platform starting at $5. Alongside a main Fiverr gig, freelancers also have the option of providing add-on services, referred to as 'gig extras'.

If you’re just starting out as a freelancer on Fiverr, you would be looking for ways to optimize your gigs. This article discusses some simple SEO methods that you can use to find new clients on Fiverr.

Add a Gig Video

Make sure that all of your Fiverr gigs have a professional and informative video. If you’re not good at making videos, you can always find a freelancer on Fiverr who’ll be happy to put one together for you.

Fiverr gigs with videos have the play icon on top right of the gig main image/video intro.

Use High-Quality Images

A high-quality image makes your gig more prominent. As for the profile picture, it is better to use a real picture so clients know who they are working with. Avoid the use of cartoon images unless your gig is specifically about cartoon or anime creation/design.

Provide Same-Day Delivery

When you’re just starting out on Fiverr, your gig may benefit from the same-day delivery system. As you start landing more gigs on Fiverr, you may find it appropriate to extend the delivery period by two or three days. Provide a gig extra and charge clients a premium for same-day delivery.

Bear in mind that buyers always welcome fast delivery. When looking for a new service provider, buyers tend to focus more on service provider’s reputation and delivery time than any other factor.

Offer a Variety of Similar Gigs

Fiverr allows you to create multiple gigs, no matter what seller level you’re on. Aim for multiple gigs that offer related services in the same category. This allows you to rank for more keywords, and for your gigs to get more impressions. You also get to upsell related services to existing clients.

SEO for Fiverr Gig

Fiverr’s search algorithms are identical to those of Google. For this reason, it is important to use the best SEO strategies when creating and promoting your gigs.

  • Use proper titles for your gig and mention the target keyword in the title.
  • The structure of the title should be: primary keyword, secondary keyword, and then brand name.
  • Focus on including both the primary and the secondary keyword in the title.
  • Avoid keyword stuffing. Make the right use of keywords for SEO benefits.

Make Proper Use of Tags

You can add up to five tags per gig. Use accurate tags to describe your gig. In the Fiverr search bar, look up your primary keyword. The search bar will show some other variations of that keyword. Use these as tags.
