OnlyFans is one of the most popular content subscription websites in the world right now. Designed to be used by anyone aged 18 or over, you can sign up as a fan or as a model or influencer. OnlyFans allows fans to subscribe to their favourite models, paying for exclusive content that allows them access to the more intimate and explicit parts of the influencer’s life, and provides models and content creators with the opportunity to generate an additional income.
OnlyFans is incredibly popular because it allows fans to connect with their favourite influencers on a deeper level. Fans can subscribe to OnlyFans users to view their exclusive content, as well as gaining access to pay per view videos, instant messaging and receiving images and videos via messenger too.
How to search on OnlyFans
Some of the most common queries when using OnlyFans is how to search on OnlyFans, how to find users on OnlyFans, and how to search users on OnlyFans. This is because although OnlyFans is one of the most popular content subscription sites in the world, the search functionality is disappointing and often returns poor results.
There is a search function on OnlyFans, however, it is relatively basic, meaning that it appears to use only a simple keyword matching algorithm to return a list of usernames. This makes finding new content creators to follow difficult if you do not already know their username or have their OnlyFans profile link.
Another problem with OnlyFans search results is that when you search by keyword, it will often bring back inactive users and even users who have never posted. This is a frustrating user experience.
The OnlyFans search function doesn’t provide you with any opportunity to filter the results, for example by keyword, by gender, by eye colour, hair colour etc. This is a missing function that could greatly improve the OnlyFans search results and usability.
OnlyFans is also missing another key feature – a ‘discovery’ page, which would allow you to see other users and models who are similar to those you follow already. This would be a great way to grow the number of subscriptions users have, because at the moment you can only really find users if you know their usernames or have followed their link from an external source. By having a discovery page, a user can discover a much wider range of models, influencers and content creators.
Alternatives to OnlyFans
As we’ve mentioned, OnlyFans search is one of the biggest flaws of the website and delivers a poor user experience for fans. However, there are a number of other platforms that are very similar to OnlyFans, but with a much improved search functionality and other added benefits.
FanCentro is incredibly similar to OnlyFans, in that it is a subscription fansite that allows users to connect with models or influencers, and subscribe to their channel to receive exclusive content and get to know more about the users. The FanCentro website is very clean and easy to use, and the search function is second to none.
Unlike the OnlyFans website, where it is hard to discover new users, the FanCentro site is incredibly straightforward to use. The platform has an effective search to allow you to discover new models to follow and subscribe to, and you can also use their great filtering options which allow you to drill down on eye colour, hair colour, breast size and much more.
Fancentro categorises models meaning you’re able to browse through categories of models to help you find your favourites. These great features, along with other benefits, are one of the reasons we have found FanCentro to be the best adult fan sites available.
IsMyGirl is another great fan site that can be seen as an OnlyFans alternative. Unlike OnlyFans, the search function on IsMyGirl is much improved, with search terms producing relevant results that may interest the user. IsMyGirl also has a search filter option, allowing you to filter your search results in order to only show users or content that you are interested in. This results in a much better user experience and enables users to discover performers to follow and subscribe to.
IsMyGirl also has a great ‘discovery’ page, which pulls in users that you may be interested in but haven’t come across yet, allowing you to discover more new models and performers to subscribe to. They also feature the most active and popular content creators on the homepage.
