SEO tricks for Gig titles

Looking for tricks to improve the quality of your Gigs? Follow the below tips on optimizing your Gigs for SEO and your business will reap the benefits.

Get a great URL for your Gig

A Gig’s first title generates its URL. Remember: This URL is unchangeable, so when you first create your Gig, use a Gig title that's memorable, attention-grabbing, and reinforces your service excellence to give you a competitive edge.

Sample Gig Title Version A: "I will best example gig title ever!"
Sample Gig Title Version A URL: "username/best-example-gig-title"

As you can see, this first sample Gig title is not buyer-friendly as it's not grammatically correct. However, it does generate an SEO-optimized URL that reinforces exactly what your service is.


Creating a buyer-friendly title

After the URL is generated and permanently set, you can update your Gig title to something more buyer-friendly. 
Sample Gig Title Version B: "I will create a very unique Gig title for you."


  • Create a short simple title—without repetitive terms.
    Remember: Repetition does not affect Gig visibility.
  • Use search terms once (either in your Gig Title or Tags) to maximize the limited space
  • Create a username, with a phrase or word related to your area of expertise, to reinforce your Gig's service to potential buyers.
