There are thousands of gigs available on Fiverr for every service. When buyers search for some service, they usually just look at that the gigs that are present on the first page same as we do on Google while searching for something.
In order to become a successful seller on Fiverr, you have to optimize your gigs so that they can show on the first page of Fiverr and buyers can notice them.
Out of all the Fiverr gig SEO steps, the most important one is to find the right keywords for your services. Keywords play a great role in ranking your gig on Fiverr’s first page.
Most of the Fiverr guides never discuss the entire process of searching keywords for Fiverr. But why worry when you have Ash with simplified solutions for you. 😛
Let’s see how to do Fiverr keyword research the right way.
What are Keywords?
Keywords are the search queries that buyers most likely type in the Fiverr search box while looking for sellers related to their work.
Let’s take the example of whiteboard videos.
A buyer who is in search of whiteboard videos service will most likely search these words:
- Whiteboard videos
- Whiteboard video animation
- Explainer video
- Whiteboard animation
- Whiteboard 3d videos
All of the above words are known as keywords that are related to Whiteboard Video service. Your job is to use these keywords in different sections of your gig to rank it higher on the Fiverr search engine.
However, doing Fiverr keyword research is not an easy as it looks. It hard because Fiverr does not automatically suggest the appropriate keywords (search volume & competition etc.) that can be near to your gig’s focused keyword. You have to invest some time to find the most searched keywords on Fiverr so that buyers can notice your gig.
Best Ways to Find the Most Searched Keywords on Fiverr
Here are some ways that you can use to do Fiverr keyword research.
1. Finding Keywords from Fiverr Search Box
The best way to find keywords for your gig is to use Fiverr search engine.
Write your generic service title in the search box and look for different suggestions that come with it. They are the keywords that buyers usually search for that particular service.
You want to create a gig related to whiteboard videos. Type your primary keyword whiteboard videos in the search box. Now, wait for the auto-complete to suggest you with the most searched keywords related to whiteboard videos. Note them down somewhere.
Next, check the competition for these key terms by typing them in the search box one by one.
In order to figure out the competition for each keyword, pay attention to the number of gigs that are available for that particular service. The lesser the number of gigs here, the easier it will be for you to rank your gig on the first page.
Save all these keywords as well as their competition in the form of a list. We’ll use this data in the next article while choosing keywords for our own gig.
2. Finding Keywords from Existing Gigs on Fiverr
Another way to find most search keywords on Fiverr is to view the gigs of other sellers who are already on the first page for that specific keyword.
You want to offer the whiteboard video service on Fiverr. Write whiteboard videos in the search bar and click the Search button.
Here you’ll see all the recommend gigs for this particular service. Change the default settings from Relevance to Bestselling. This will help you to see the gigs that are already popular.
Check out multiple gigs having good reviews and ratings to collect keywords as well as to get an idea of what kind of service you need to provide for attracting buyers.
How to Identify the Keywords Used in a Gig
Open multiple gigs that belong to your niche and analyze the keywords used in them. Save all those key terms somewhere. This will help you to have a list of commonly searched keywords that you can use later in your own gig.
The gig you are seeing below is my own Fiverr gig which is ranking on the first page of Fiverr. Can you identify the keywords I have used for this gig?
Here’s how you can do it:
Focus on the following sections and you’ll be able to get an idea of the keywords being targeted:
- Title of the Gig
- URL of the Gig
- Tags of the Gig
- Image/ Thumbnail of the Gig
You can see I’ve used the word “home decor” in the title, URL, tags, and thumbnail of the gig. So, this is the primary keyword I’m targeting in this gig. That’s how you can find keywords from existing gigs of other sellers who are already performing very well on Fiverr.

Remember, Fiverr keyword research is a skill and it comes with practice. You’ll make mistakes, you’ll get stuck in the process but that’s how you’ll learn.
I can only share useful tips and tricks with you. I cannot make you a pro in them. It’s your job. Spend some time, find a lot of keywords, create different variations of your key terms, and do experiments with them to see what actually works for your gig. Best of luck! 🙂
