    #Content and Image optimization
    #HTML optimization
    #Anchor text internal linking
    #Optimization of H tags (H1, H2, H3...)
    #Creating Google Sitemap

    This is why I don't deal with posting in Fiverr.

    I wouldn't touch this project unless I did a break down of all the prices for each project process.

    It is your fault that you are working with Fiverr not buyers fault :D
    Just create an eCommerce site for your services and sell there with your desired prices ;)

    If the fiverr gigs are getting to much of a pain, let it go.. Send him packing. Honestly there is no sense working for dirt cheap.. Fiverr sellers are rapidly training the buyers there to be "freebee or Cheapee" seekers wanting more and more for less and less. I would tell that buyer to dip his knuckles.. One line I use a lot when I feel buyers are asking WAY to much is.. You can't have steak on a hamburger budget..

    I sell lot's on Fiverr, but i'm not the type to sell 1000 links, or all that SEO work for $5, my time is worth more than that.

    And yes I do have clients that I do SEO work for, for great money.

    This guys budget was only $25 for each site. I know Fiverr is a place to get low priced services, but some people are just outrageous with what they want done.

    Long story short, I told him what I would need per site, and he told me he found a top rated seller to do it all for his budget. Once his sites get all messed up, and ranking don't improve, maybe he will be back and pay me what I want. lol
