Why isn’t my work showing up in Redbubble’s search results?

If you’ve tried searching for your work and found only the following message, this means you need to start tagging your work


We have a thorough guide on how best to tag your work right over here, but if you're looking for a quick guide, read along!

Long story short: if you want customers to find your work when searching for a specific word, include that word in your tags - that means your name and username too.

You can add tags upon uploading your work:


Or you can use the Quick Edit option on your Manage Portfolio page to quickly add tags and titles to your work. Be sure to click the red Save button after adding your tags to each work!


Be sure to use appropriate and relevant tags in your works and not tag spam. It may take up to 15 minutes for newly added and newly tagged work to show up in our search results.

New Artist Accounts

After uploading your first 5 designs, it may take up to 5 business days for your shop to be visible to the public in Redbubble searches and with direct links.

During this time, you may see a temporary banner when viewing your artwork that says:

This work is not publicly visible as this account is currently Restricted
Fret not! You'll no longer see the banner when your account is visible to the public.
