    I have a few gigs that have been succesful, writing gigs.. l100% feedback with each with over 50 five star reviews..

    I have advanced in my career now to not have to be a writer anymore, and I want to change fiverr to a more passive approach of earning..

    SO my Question: Is it possible, or has anyone ever tried to edit their established gig to offer something completely different , different title, category etc.. and Would this work?

    Would be great to transfer the feedback onto the new service like this, would be much easier to get sales.. But its also a bit cheeky and not sure if it would be allowed..

    I didn't change the title or anything in gig, but I did change my gig category and everything remains the same, so I don't think that you will lose something..

    The url will stick to your new gig

    IF you opend a gig called "Writing an original article of 500 words" your url:writing-an-original-article-of-500-words will stay

    And you will lose the ranking if you change the category and probably the tags. You can't espect that gigi that is ranking higher in writing to rank higher in other category by simply changing it lol

    If you change it to say a link building gig, which means changing the category etc you will keep the reviews but you won't rank in the link building category. Also as wizard mentioned the URL will not change.

    I've done it with great results! The best thing is that all the right signals, feedback, purchase, etc, really carry the gig up 5'er's ranking. The previous url will stick, but it doesn't matter.

    Just leave it and offer your new services as gig extra's and create a new gig
    for your new service.

    If one of your gig's/service is getting sales don't screw up your ranking
    because if your gig goes into the fiverr desert you will not be a happy chappy!!!

    Whatever you change the url will remain the same and it really effects the ranking. I tried the same few days back and almost lost the Buyers
