    I'm not sure if this is obvious or not, but my gig had been quiet for quite a few days (after having about 20 orders initially).

    When I edited my gig to add a few points to the description, I got 4 orders all of a sudden.

    Just wondering if editing a gig puts it back in the ranks similar to how a new gig gets priority.

    I know it's nothing special but thought people might wanna try it...

    I think you can put multiple gigs in the same niche to refresh the traffic. Also popular gigs stay on the top page for that site.. Is it an automated service you are selling?

    I'm selling blogroll link. I edited to offer 2 links instead of one, BUT the new buyers only asked still for 1 link each, so I don't think the offer was the reason for the increase, I think it was the editing. Just an observation, if anyone else tries it il be interested to hear if it works.

    Had a couple gigs up on Fiverr for 8 days now. Seven orders, one $150 upsell off Fiverr. Definitely potential!

    yea, editing definitely has an affect on sales, i noticed this too

    but i'm not editing most of them anymore, because fiverr's moderation system became more strict and what they allow when fiverr started (almost everything), they don't allow now, so just be careful with editing ;) if you edit your gig, it needs to go through the moderation again
