    Fiverr has launched its new feature subcategory today.

    http://blog.fiverr.com/2012/08/22/subcategories-are-coming/

    This will allow sellers to classify their gigs instead of using the broad category.

    I was wondering how you guys search for a certain gig? Do you use the search bar immediately or do you click one of the categories on the right side?

    I've never used the categories and I doubt many of the people who buy my gig do either so I doubt this will really do anything.

    I've always searched for the service in the search bar and then sorted by rating, however I'm a seller for the most part so it doesn't hurt to add the subcategories to all my gigs

    I have always searched. Sometime, I will look at the odd and bizarre category to see what people are offering.

    I tend to use the search bar. But today I did have a look at a category. Too much to look through even after filtering so I like my good ole' search terms.

    In fiverr there are so many gigs but with limited category and sub categories and its tough to search appropriate gigs. They need tro add some more categories and again the search function should be more specific.

    Completely agree to implement an advanced search bar instead of subcats...
