According to Expandedramblings.com, Fiverr has about 830000 sellers and 3.4 million active buyers registered on the site. Founded in 2010, now it is one of the biggest online marketplaces for buying and selling different types of services.

I started my first gig on Fiverr back in 2014. It was a transcription gig. At that time, obviously, there was much less competition and my gig ranked within a few days. I didn’t do anything specifically to rank. I just kind of almost copied other top-ranking Transcription gigs and created my own.

Anyways, Fiverr is now much more crowded and you will not rank easily for a competitive keyword. But there’s still a lot of money to be made. To make money on Fiverr in 2021, you need to do your keyword research properly.

If you have newly joined Fiverr, don’t get scared of the competition. There is something for everyone here. If you think, only people who are on Fiverr for years get all the gigs, you are wrong. In this article, I am going to show you how to rank your Fiverr gig on the first page or more specifically, how to create a gig that will rank for a particular keyword.

Keyword implementation on Fiverr

Here, the title doesn’t have to mean anything for the moment. Just enter all the keywords that you have found after doing your research and create the gig. Now you might ask, why do I need to do this? Because whatever you put in this section becomes your URL which is good for SEO. Even if you change the “Title” later, the URL will not change.

Click save and continue. After creating the gig edit the title and put a sensible and meaningful Title this time using your primary keyword.

After Title, come to the description. The first three lines are very important. You should repeat your main keyword here in a meaningful way. Previously it was possible to rank by just staffing all your keywords here. But that doesn’t work anymore. You might rank at first but
once your gig becomes popular, you might get into trouble

File Optimization

You need to optimize your gig images too. What you have to do here is, first download your images, videos from your gigs, copy all the keywords that you put on the “Title” box while creating your gig, and then rename your images with these keywords. Not only images but also if you have any PDF files or have created any video for your gig, do the same. Optimizing images and videos before uploading will help your gigs rank faster.

You can see in the image below that my gig is already getting impressions and even clicks.
