How does Fiverr Ranking Really Work?


Fiverr is an excellent service platform giving opportunities to talented people to offer their services. It’s a win-win situation as both freelancers and Fiverr earn from selling services.

So Fiverr is a big store selling services to clients by exposing the best products to make the store attractive. Probably an algorithm selects and ranks the services according to some indicators, like choosing first the services that sell. Why these services are attractive to clients? Because they also have many positive reviews. As the clients are happy with services and freelancers, Fiverr is also satisfied getting fees from that services. The clients are satisfied and come back to Fiverr to buy again.

How does Fiverr measure the attractiveness of a service? 

Let’s answer using an example. I am selling 2 similar products. The first product had 1000 views and bought it 150 people and the second product had 1000 views and was bought by 5 people. Which one do you think I should place on the first page of my store? I want sales and the answer is obvious. Fiverr works exactly the same way. Exposing the best sellers, giving impressions to them. Impressions inside Fiverr bring real orders and sales. This is the reason you need to make a lot of things to approach success in Fiverr.

Important to avoid

The main mistake Fiverr sellers do, is sharing massively their Fiverr gigs. Fiverr give us the choice to share our service after its creation.  This may kill your services even from their startup. It is also something that can be recovered. How to avoid this and get your Fiverr Gigs known?

Using a way to show what you offer inside Fiverr but showing it outside of the platform. Create a website and promote your brand name and your services. Share the website massively and approach clients to visit and explore what you offer. Drive the clients who are really interested in your services into Fiverr. This is also what FiverrBox provides. Exposes your services exactly described as in Fiverr. Only clients determined to buy will visit Fiverr and order your service. This is the key.

The reason.

If 20000 people visit your service in FiverrBox and just only one links to Fiverr and buy then Fiverr knows that with one visit – view, your service had one sale. A well-description gig, trying as a seller to make your clients satisfied and get 5-star positive reviews, will be progress for your gig. 

What do you think would happen if these 20000 people visit your service directly on Fiverr?

Fiverr keeping statistics understands that you had one order after 20000 views. This is a useless service for Fiverr as the service doesn’t sell according to its views. Fiverr would never give impressions to such a service. No impressions on Fiverr, no sales through Fiverr visits.

Fiverr indicators, meaning views of your services are safe when you expose and link massively to your Fiverr gigs description outside Fiverr. Like FiverrBox or a website, you created for that reason.

Let’s get back to us. 


What is FiverrBox

FiverrBox is a portal website service to Fiverr

FiverrBox is a website service designed to provide hosting to your Fiverr Gig’s descriptions and links back to Fiverr, sharing your services and talents to multiple audiences outside Fiverr. FiverrBox targets exclusively social media target groups related to Fiverr services. FiverrBox creates backlinks to your services and your Fiverr gigs are indexed in search engines.

We created such a service as there are thousands of Fiverr Gigs with no impressions and visibility inside the Fiverr platform. It is the most common problem for all Fiverr sellers and FiverrBox provides visibility, sharing, and outsourcing traffic to your Fiverr Gig’s descriptions. FiverrBox becomes your vehicle to make the services you provide in Fiverr known. Our target is to make your impressions increase and make your services active back on Fiverr.

Believe us, there is no danger for your Fiverr account to share your Fiverr gigs descriptions in FiverrBox. Fiverr already encourages you to share your Fiverr links everywhere except by advertising them. FiverrBox approaches visitors to explore your descriptions and link them back to Fiverr becoming orders. Only views and visits that become orders will increase impressions on Fiverr.

In FiverrBox, we share FiverrBox links instead of Fiverr links. Potential buyers have to read descriptions outside Fiverr and link in Fiverr only to order. Avoiding visitors to explore descriptions on Fiverr, decreases views and visits not turned to orders. This is the key. Services must show that sell. Fiverr gigs with orders and sales after a low amount of views are an indicator that increases impressions on Fiverr.

“We created an experiment. Playing with our accounts, we found a way to share our Fiverr account’s gig massively. Without taking apart the design and the reviews, we found out that impressions were decreasing until the time our gig was totally invisible. We had no impressions at all. Sharing our FiverrBox links massively everywhere, we managed to make a few sales. Suddenly we started to get impressions again after a specific period. Statistics lead us to understand that views in Fiverr not turned to orders make our services invisible. They are probably not attractive and Fiverr ranking is based on quality, attractiveness, and positive reviews.”

It is almost sure that searching you and your services, there is a possibility to find them in search results in FiverrBox when they are somewhere hidden and lost in Fiverr.

Asking ChatGPT About Fiverr Ranking

As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, Fiverr’s ranking algorithm is not publicly disclosed, so I can provide you with information based on what was known up until that time. Please keep in mind that things might have changed since then, so it’s a good idea to check for any recent updates from Fiverr itself.

Fiverr is a platform that connects freelancers (sellers) with clients (buyers) who are looking for various services. The platform uses a ranking algorithm to determine how services are displayed to potential buyers. While the exact details of the algorithm are proprietary, there are several factors that are generally believed to influence a seller’s ranking on Fiverr:

  1. Gig Performance: Fiverr takes into account how well your gigs (service offerings) are performing. This includes metrics like the number of orders completed, buyer satisfaction (reviews and ratings), and on-time delivery.

  2. Response Rate and Time: Being responsive to messages from potential clients is important. Maintaining a high response rate and quick response time can positively impact your ranking.

  3. Completion Rate: This refers to the percentage of orders you’ve successfully completed out of all the orders you’ve received. Maintaining a high completion rate is important for your ranking.

  4. Order Cancellations: Too many order cancellations can negatively affect your ranking. It’s best to try to resolve issues with clients rather than canceling orders whenever possible.

  5. Reviews and Ratings: Positive reviews and high ratings from satisfied clients can improve your ranking. Encouraging clients to leave reviews after completing orders can be helpful.

  6. Level: Fiverr has different seller levels (e.g., New Seller, Level 1, Level 2, Top Rated Seller). Advancing to higher levels usually requires meeting specific performance criteria, and achieving higher levels can provide benefits like increased visibility and additional features.

  7. Keywords and Tags: Optimizing your gig title, description, and tags with relevant keywords can help your gig show up in relevant searches.

  8. Click-Through Rate (CTR): If your gig is frequently clicked on by users who see it in search results or on the Fiverr homepage, it may signal to Fiverr’s algorithm that your gig is relevant and appealing.

  9. Conversion Rate: The percentage of users who visit your gig and then proceed to place an order. A higher conversion rate can indicate that your gig is resonating well with potential buyers.

  10. Gig Views: The number of times your gig is viewed can also play a role in ranking. More views might indicate a higher level of interest in your services.

It’s important to note that Fiverr’s algorithm is complex and likely takes into consideration many other factors as well. Additionally, Fiverr may update its ranking algorithm from time to time, so staying updated with their official announcements and guidelines is crucial for maintaining and improving your ranking on the platform. Always follow best practices, provide high-quality services, and maintain positive interactions with clients to enhance your Fiverr ranking.

Common questions

Many FiverrBox members are asking some questions like :

Why I didn’t get any sales yet as I have listed my gigs in FiverrBox?

How you can promote my gigs to rank first? etc.

First of all, FiverrBox doesn’t sell. FiverrBox exposes and promotes your Fiverr Gigs descriptions to social accounts and groups. FiverrBox tries to spread the word about your gigs listed in FiverrBox, for the reasons we have already mentioned.

How FiverrBox members can help with this promotion?

The answer is coming from the following questions.

Have you even liked your own services?

Have you shared FiverrBox listings with your friends?

Have you shared them with groups related to Fiverr?

Do you know you could advertise your Fb FiverrBox posts as it is the safest way to advertise your Fiverr gigs without killing their ranking on Fiverr?

If you have done nothing to help your services, you may get no results. 

What can I do to boost my services’ visibility?

We have added buttons in your Dashboard to approach FiverrBox Fb and Twitter posts of your gigs. 

Our posts are shared but only 5% to 10% of Facebook followers view your listings.

For that reason, you can share and reshare it daily to approach most of your followers or the groups and pages you have shared them. 

You can use buttons at the bottom of your posts. 

We have also added the 20% Discount Option. We want to approach buyers in the future to search for Fiverr services in FiverrBox searching for a 20% discount. Take advantage of this option as we have added an extra search bar for discounted services. You can edit your gig’s category to “Discount 20%”. You can gain visibility, orders, sales, and positive reviews. The target is to start getting more and more impressions inside Fiverr. 

Other options

Check and edit your description and use the right keywords. We will add tutorials but you can also explore some videos to see how a description can be attractive and worthy. 

Spend much time finding a perfect picture or pictures. You can also create a video gig. According to Fiverr, video helps to get more visibility. We can’t prove if this is true or not.

The most important. Be polite and friendly. Make the best to keep your client happy and satisfied. Give the client more than expects and make gifts. You have to get a 5-star positive review. It’s necessary. Not the sale nor the earnings. The positive reviews will bring much more earnings in the future. Give everything to get much more than expected.

Finally, remember to avoid sharing your direct Fiverr links. You don’t need useless traffic increasing views with low potential profit. You are killing your Fiverr gigs.

That’s it. Good luck.
