Onlyfans Ranking System Explained

Onlyfans Ranking System Explained

You’ve probably seen at least one OnlyFans profile that says the creator is in the top 1% of models on the platform. But what does that actually mean? A savvy model needs to know how the OnlyFans ranking system works and how it can impact your earnings.

Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about OnlyFans’ creator ranking system and what it means for you.

How OnlyFans Percentages Get Calculated

Unfortunately, OnlyFans doesn’t say how its ranking system works. The platform only gives creators a percentage-based ranking and leaves it there. This tells you you’re in the top x% of models on OnlyFans but doesn’t say the metrics the company used to determine that.

There are different theories, but the most prominent is that OnlyFans bases its rankings on earnings. If that’s true, you would become a top 1% model on the platform if you earned more on OnlyFans than 99% of creators. The actual formula may be a bit more complicated than this, but your earnings are a great place to start if you’re interested in learning more about why your ranking is where it is.

That being said, your OnlyFans ranking doesn’t impact how much you earn on the platform or how many features you get access to. It’s just a way of measuring your performance relative to other creators on the platform.

How Adult Content Creators Can Improve Their OnlyFans Rankings

The most straightforward way to improve your OnlyFans creator ranking is to earn more on the platform. You can do this by increasing your OnlyFans subscriber count, increasing your monthly subscription fee, or offering exclusive adult content for an extra fee. Here are some other strategies you can use to start earning more and improving your OnlyFans statistics.

Engage With Fans Consistently

OnlyFans content creators have a more direct relationship with their viewers than other models in the adult industry. You should be leaning into that to build those relationships with subscribers. Doing that can turn a fan’s one-time purchase into an ongoing subscription that lasts months or years.

There are tons of ways you can engage with your fans, including:

  • Responding to every direct message you receive
  • Engaging with fans on other social media platforms
  • Giving your fans a say in your next post through polling
  • Offering exclusive content at a special rate to subscribers who are looking for something unique

Use Hashtags To Reach a Wider Audience

Social media may be the most effective tool you have for building your audience and improving your OnlyFans account stats. Using hashtags on platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok is an excellent way to grow your audience.

The trick is figuring out which hashtags your target audience is likeliest to search. For example, if you make cosplay content, you could search through different hashtags for characters you’re thinking of dressing up as to see which ones have the most interest. Then, you could post those cosplays across your social platforms with the hashtags you researched to find new followers and potentially increase your OnlyFans subscriber count in the process.

Hashtags can also be useful on your OnlyFans profile. When people go to an OnlyFans search engine and type in a hashtag, your profile could appear. This can be another avenue to work toward your goal of earning more money and improving your OnlyFans stats.

Provide Exclusive Content to Your Followers

OnlyFans top earners tend to have loyal subscriber bases that keep paying the monthly fee time and time again. To create that community, you need to give them a reason to continue subscribing to you. One way to do that is by offering exclusive content to followers.

This could mean offering a special item of content at a price that’s lower than your current rate. Or you could let your subscribers vote on the type of content they want to see next from you weekly or monthly.

It can also be smart to post exclusive content on each of your social media pages. For example, you could go to Instagram and post a tease of an image or video that you’ve just posted on TikTok. That way, your fans have to follow you on each of your social media profiles to find all of your content. This can be helpful when you’re trying to build a following or improve your research into fan preferences.

Offer Discounts and Promotions

Modeling can be an up-and-down business. Discounts and promotions can be effective tools for renewing interest in your page when fan payments decrease. They incentivize people interested in your content to subscribe to your page now before prices go up again.

There are a few different kinds of discounts and promotions to consider. One is simply reducing your current rate for a limited period of time. Another is offering a discount to those who buy in bulk. For example, you could charge $10 per month for a subscription but sell annual subscriptions for $100. This can be a way to increase the average revenue you generate from each subscriber.

Cross-Promote Relevant Content on Other Social Platforms

We touched on this a bit earlier, but it’s worth reiterating the importance of promoting yourself on other social media platforms. OnlyFans doesn’t have a great integrated search tool, so your discoverability needs to happen elsewhere, on platforms like Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, Twitch, and Snapchat.

It can be tough to grow these accounts on your own. That’s why Bluresca gives every model we work with guides and support for social media growth. It’s a common industry practice to work with management services for this purpose.

Include Co-Authored Content Following the Terms of Service

Collaborations with other OnlyFans top creators can be a super effective way to build your following. You and the model you partner with will each have content featured to another audience, which can bring in new subscribers and followers for social media accounts.

Just make sure that you follow OnlyFans’ terms of service when posting co-authored content. You need to have the express permission of the other creator to post the content on your page, and they have to be a creator on OnlyFans as well (not another platform like Patreon).

Optimize Your Profile With Keywords

A few subheadings ago, we talked about how you can use hashtags on OnlyFans to improve your discoverability when people use OnlyFans search engines and similar tools. Keywords can do the same thing for you and help you move up the OnlyFans ranking system.

A keyword is a word you include in your profile because you believe people will search for it. After adding a keyword to your page, your profile can appear in search results for the phrase or word.

This is a good strategy for building a following in a certain niche. For example, if we continue our earlier example about posting cosplay content, you could include keywords like “cosplayer” on your OnlyFans page to ensure people find you when they want to discover new cosplayers.

What Percentage of OnlyFans Creators Make Money?

The road to earning a top 5 OnlyFans income can be a long one. But there are plenty of creators on the platform who earn a reliable income. For example, some estimates suggest the top 1% of OnlyFans creators earn around $6,000 monthly, and the top 10% earn about $1,000 per month.

OnlyFans doesn’t publish official data on creator earnings, so take these estimates with a grain of salt. Analysts believe the average OnlyFans model earns between $150 and $180 per month.

It’s impossible to say what percentage of OnlyFans creators earn money without more detailed information from the platform. But what’s clear is that it’s absolutely possible to take an OnlyFans side hustle and turn it into your main source of income by getting more people interested in your page.
