How do you search OnlyFans? Discover 5 unique & powerful ways

Do you want to know how do you search OnlyFans?

Good – then let’s look at the different options.

OnlyFans has got some (very limited) search functionality built into their website.

You can only use this search box to search for accounts you’re already following (not very useful).

Or if you type in a user’s exact username it will work too:

searching by exact username will work on the onlyfans website

searching by exact username will work on the onlyfans website

But why is the OnlyFans native search so limited?

Well, basically a lot of onlyfans creators understandably want to remain anonymous or at least not be easily found on onlyfans (by employers, stalkers, etc).

OnlyFans does not want to make it easy for these kinds o bad actors to easily find specific OnlyFans creators.

This is a good thing for your privacy.

So the onlyfans website search is extremely basic and that’s not likely to change anytime soon.

OnlyFans Search Engines

Because the native OnlyFans search functionality is so limited…

This has resulted in lots of “3rd party” OnlyFans search engines being built. 

“3rd party” just means that OnlyFans do not run these search sites.

If you optimize your profile so that these search engines can index your profile (i.e. make it so people can find you when they search) then you might unlock a bunch of free traffic for your page.

These websites and apps are created by people (not employed by OnlyFans) and allow you to search for and find people on OnlyFans.

These are the biggest 3rd party OnlyFans search engines:

Why 3rd party search engines exist

We already mentioned how limited the native-onlyfans search is.

And the reality is that there are lots of guys (and gals) out there who want to be able to search for OnlyFans creators:

  • They want to search for creators in niches they like or creators in a certain country…
  • They want to find free accounts for certain niches to try out before paying…
  • And so on…

This means they want to type things like “free bbw onlyfans” and get returned a list of (free) BBW onlyfans creators’ profiles.

How OnlyFans Search Engines work

These sites all use keywords found in your onlyfans bio text (as well as your username and display name) to help people search for profiles.  

For example, if you’re in the German & BBW niches, and have “German” and “BBW” in your bio text…

This will help onlyfans search engines to list your profile when people search for  “German BBW”.

You can see how it works clearly in this example:

See how it works?

OnlyFans search engines use your bio text, username, and display name to categorize your profile and return it in certain searches.

That’s why it’s important to have your onlyfans bio optimized so that onlyfans search engines can list your profile.

Search by OnlyFans usernames

If you know the username of another OnlyFans creator, you can simply go to this to view their profile:

E.g. if the creator username is “Mary”, then just change the link like this:

If you don’t know another creator’s username then obviously you can just check out their socials (Insta/Twitter) etc and look for their onlyfans (or allmylinks) link in their profile bio.

But how do you search OnlyFans if you don’t know a creator’s username or socials?

That’s where OnlyFans search engines come in.

Fansmetrics allows you to perform an OnlyFans search using their name, their location, or matching keywords on their profile.
