    Hello guys,

    I have been experiencing this thing for past 20 days. I provide backlink service on fiverr and I was making good money with it as I need money for my start up. :(

    But for last couple of days they are deleting every account that I create. :(

    They dont delete the account when they dont show up in the search. They delete the account when they appear on the top with the respected Search Terms. :(

    They have already closed 7 of my accounts in last 20 days.

    When I asked their support regarding deletion of the accounts, they send me the canned on deletion and terms and policy link.

    BUT THEY ARE NOT TELLING ME THE REASON FOR DELETION OF ACCOUNT.

    I am using the images that I created my self. :(

    Is there any othe way to follow up with them so that I can know the exact reason for deletion of my accounts?

    Can you send me some background on your ads? PM me your ad so I can review. I have been making good money on fiverr for over a year now but you have not provided enough info to help you. The first thing I would suspect is that you are providing your clients a way to contact outside of fiver like an email or link which is a violation of fiverr TOS.

    Try signing up from an IP of a different country

    Are you using the same paypal account ? Try with a different paypal account as well

    If you are using the same IP for all your accounts, that's probably what is causing it.

    naw everyone i know has like 5 accounts and use the same ip. from my knowlege they don't care about stuff like that. Has to be something else. Is your email anywhere in the gig description?

    - I dont have my email address on the description or anyhwere else on the gig or account Id.

    - I dont ask the buyers to provide me with contact details or contact me outside fiverr.

    - I take care to not to break the rules.

    DETAILS AND HISTORY OF THE PROBLEM : -

    I still have couple of old accounts ( three month old) active with them, and couple of them show up on the first page with the respective keyword search.

    It started last month when I started and Account with a Gig providing 200 EDU BACKLINK service people. It was going well and I made around 250 dollars with it in 10 days, but on 11th day, they DECLINED THE GIG, and after few HOURS THEY CLOSED MY ACCOUNT. :(

    So, next day I created Account with new gig, and provided the same service. the account was fine till the time it wasnt showing in the search result. After three days it was indexed by the Fiverr search and it started appearing on the first page. I got order and made up to 36$ in 3 days, and on fourth day account was CLOSED BY FIVERR. :(

    I created couple of more accounts after it and same thing happened. Just yesterday they closed my latest account which i created seven days ago. it was active till it wasnt showing up in the search result. But once it started showing up on the top with the search Keyword EDU BACKLINKS and Backlinks, it was closed down, I had completed only 3 orders. :(

    As I mentioned above, I still have couple of old, and 4-5 active accounts which I have already abandoned.

    I wonder why they keep on closing your accounts?

    I'm interested to know because I want to start my own gigs in there.

    Or maybe, they don't want competitor for that 'gig' that was just created 2 months ago and has already got 1400+ orders.

    ru fo' real? you told them you had 7 banned accounts and now you're wondering why you only got a link to their TOS

    you need to keep your accounts separated, it's pretty easy to track you down if you're just resubmitting your gig (slightly modified version) every time you got banned, especially if you leave tracks other than just your gig

    it can be a competitor tho, he/she reports you right away when you're getting into the front page (because of various reasons: you're using a copyrighted picture for instance even if you aren't, there's a whole thread dedicated to this problem on bhw)

    fiverr is not a big fan of you for some reason (the reason is almost irrelevant), you can only outsmart them if you keep your newly created account(s) separated from the banned ones, you don't need to be too tricky with this, the general rules of multiple account creation work on fiverr as well, you also may need to be ready to offer other service(s) than just this exact backlinking service

    HoNeYBiRD, i've seen you post a lot concerning fiverr and you seem to know your stuff. What things should one do so not to get their fiverr account banned? I always thought fiverr was pretty much cool with multiple accounts but after reading this thread i did a little search and there are a few others in the same boat as the op. I find it weird because as i stated earlier on in the thread everyone i know and their mother has 5 fiverr accounts without ever using a proxy or vpn.

    well, you won't find anywhere in their TOS that everybody's allowed to have only one fiverr account, at least i can't find it, what they state that you can associate only one paypal account to one fiverr account and this cannot be undone
    everybody's allowed to have only one paypal account, if you play by the rules (ergo you can have one fiverr account if you're whiter than the whitest hat :)), but we also know we can attach 8 email addresses per paypal account, so in theory you can have 8 - or even more if you create fake paypals - fiverr accounts as well until they don't take a closer look

    however if you want to play 100% safe and don't want to get all of your accounts banned all at once, then you'll use proxies and will do everything to keep your accounts separate, if you don't really care, you won't use proxies and won't do any precautions

    i don't know exactly how their system works (most likely they don't have any automation in place as of now to track accounts - there wouldn't be this much people with multiple accounts - and they do this manually), but we do know what's those parameters they can use to identify an account (in case if they want), it's not just fiverr, but everywhere you use any type of accounts (from the top of my head: IP address, cookies/flash cookies, browser referer, OS, the language of the system, /MAC address/, java, email address, paypal email/paypal account, username, password, profile pic, profile description, gig title, gig description, gig pic), this doesn't mean fiverr can/willing to track all of these of course
    if they want to track you down for any reason, you don't want to give them the chance to find all of your accounts, do you?

    well, methinks they're not against multiple accounts unofficially, it means them more money and when i last checked they're not a nonprofit company

    i only have one top rated seller account and i play by their rules...well, most of the time :)

    OK, So just to test if its an IP problem I created a new account the day before yesterday ,and provided the same service with some extras like com backlinks with edu backlinks. I created 5 gigs on this account, and so far its good. 4 gigs on this account are on the first page with the search term (not on top). So, far I have made 36$ :)

    Even I was contacted by fiverr staff regarding on of my gig. As it has too much repitition of my keyword, they told me to remove the repetition of keywords which i did and the gig was approved again.

    So, I came to the conclusion that it has nothing to do with a person having multiple accounts or IP. As my gigs in previous accounts were on the TOP, someone was FALSELY REPORTING my gigs to avoid competition. :( So for time being I will not make any changes in gigs to come on Top.


    bookmarc - Its very simple. Make the Gig Title and Body as Keyword Rich as possible.

    ohh, you know what i've learned over the years. Some companies(websites) become jerks when they become famous, and don't rely only on a few users. Heard lot of complains about fiver lately, also about adsense.

    Right now i am very disappointed about Godaddy. They are forcing me to pay 500$ because they had a bug in the auction system. At least i'm lucky and can avoid this thing, by creating a different account. Sorry for you problem

    Yes, repeat the keywords but make sure it doesnt look spamy. Make it like its part of the sentence.

    - Use keyword in every sentence of the Body.

    - Upload self made picture and use keyword in its name.

    - To get boost, use your sentence more than once in the first sentence of the body. I have noticed that most of the top results have started body of their gig like this ... BACKLINKS, BACKLINKS, BACKLINKS, more BACKLINKS. Get Backlink deal on fiverr, bla bla bla ....

    - Further, research yourself by searching the keyword of your category in fiverr search box, and check top 10 results, you will get an idea of what exactly they have done on the gigs. But, mostly its all about keywords.
