    Tags must be letters only, no more than 3 words and only alowed 5 tags or something?

    Also if you have any error on you gig, when the page refreshes, tags are always surrounded by quotation marks - which are considered illegal characters, so you have to remove the quotations and add back in the commas before resubmitting (that is a big, 1 of many as well;)).

    This was driving me nuts today. I had to edit my gag multiple times and every time I had to manually remove all the quotation marks and rewrite commas.

    by the way guys what method do u recommend to get gig noticed..i just posted it 5 mins back.it had like 60 visits within 2-3 mins (maybe due to first page) but now its geting slower and slower...i guess positive feedback is increases the ranking. corect me if i m wrong. Do i need fake positive feedbacks then ? is there any way to get them..i could have done it myself but fiver takes away 1 dollar :D i already have a catchy title and descrip and a girl's photo and raunchy username :p

    Yup, after you added a few gigs you realise that you gotta triple check everything - make sure you got no illegal characters anywhere, make sure add image, no more than 3 word phrases in tags, no more than 5 tags then you never get an error! ;)

    But fiverr is buggy - especially if you are on their mobile site - that's terrible, I had to download desktop browser emulator for iPhone because the mobile site is unusable!

    Best advice I had for fiverr was:
    1. Post gigs at 10pm ish (uk time) as this is when most users online
    2. Keep regularly posting gigs and delete old ones - initial promotion is the best promotion your gonna get.
    3. Optional-create multiple accounts (but I actually think you need proxies to do this or they know) - in theory if you had continuous new gigs, you'd get the most exposure - but this is time consuming trust me.
    4. Reviews are key, if you have a good enough gig that you can run with, sales keep picking up as time goes on - the more positive reviews the better.

    It's a big help if you can encourage ppl to leave review - like offer them 10% extra if they leave a review, and offer discount to repeat customers.

    That's about it!!!!!

    And to add what David said:

    Get your gig on multiple networks. Put your gig up on my clone, we get sales every day and get 1-2k uniques daily

    i guess fiverr employees dont check each and every attachment manually? is it ?

    i was thinking of offering them an extra bonus so that they give positive rating and have my other services listed which cant be done for 5 dollars :)

    No, but if somebody reports you, they will look into it...but you should be ok with your attachment
