Category of your gig:

You will find two sections under this hierarchy. One is main and the other is a sub-category. In the main category, you will select one main niche of your choice (expertise). which may be helpful to Fiverr to identify your niche.

The other one belongs to your main niche. It all depends upon the main category. For example, if sellers choose digital marketing in the main category, then subcategories are according to digital marketing.

Service Type:

Here, the seller becomes more specific about his work. As Fiverr recommends all new sellers create seven gigs about their niche. When the seller is completely aware of the benefits of creating seven gigs at a time. He becomes more specific to grab the buyer’s attention. This is called the creation of a professional gig.

This feature isn’t compulsory but Fiverr recommends it to make a more effective gig for users. It totally depends upon the main and sub-categories of your gig. Fiverr’s automatic functions create a list of services under each category. From where you choose your services.

Gig Metadata:

This amazing feature is available to make you more confident and efficient. There are two sub-categories under this main category.

Industries expertise:

In this category, the seller has the opportunity to explain his expertise by mentioning the industries where he worked previously. He can also refer to those industries where he has been working recently. Thus, users may be inspired by his expertise and feel free to contact him for their job.


This feature is about languages you may speak. It contains more than 64 languages. You have to checkmark all those languages which you may speak. This is more helpful for Asian sellers who can speak English as well as many other languages. This feature comforts the buyer to award his project (according to its worth) to a multi-lingual seller.

Search Tags:

In this section, the seller has to write five tags according to his gig service. Which supports promoting his gig in search results. Here, some tags require the seller to verify his service in form of a Fiverr test. These tags should be small and contain only letters and numbers.
