    OK I am looking at a purchasing a fiverr gig and here are the stats tell me what you think.

    Rating: 100%
    Thumbs up: 294
    Thumbs down: 0
    Rated Experience: 173
    People like gig: 0
    Created: 6 months ago
    -----------------

    Ok everything seemed good until I saw how many people actually liked the gig.. with 294 sales you would think at least 1 person would like the gig right? I want BHW feedback on what you think.. would you buy this gig, do you think the stats are fake etc, it is the kind of gig you would buy more then once on separate occasions if that helps.

    It might be a members here at BHW not sure if I should post it, or if it would even be allowed by moderators to post.

    I got scammed from some fiverr dude saying he can generate leads for any vertical.... he was paying people 10 cents per form they complete. HAHA

    ive seen ton of great feedback gigs without any likes. If its the "internal" fiverr "likes" system that just means no one has bookmarked it yet. sounds legit to me.

    Put this in to perspective...

    I have 4500 postive ratings on one gig, 30,000 views and three likes.

    Likes don't mean anything, with nearly 300 positive feedbacks I woudln't be wary of it.

    If there were a few thumbs down then I would be a bit leary about the gig but since the seller has high ratings then I would trust it. If you aren't pleased with the service then you could always request a refund with customer service.

    Hey guys. There are almost no likes, because there are some bugs in fiverr. I asked their customer support and they answered that they will fix it soon. I had 60+ likes on my gig, now there are only 2. It's just a bug.

    I buy a lot scrapebox blast, xrumer blast and linkwheel from fiverr. And i see good result in serp. I made ten times of what i invested to fiverr outsourcing.

    Make sure to read the fiverr provider feedback, use only reputable one

    Come on, just spend that five dollars. If you loose it though you still be fine. The feedback is good.

    I would trust it. Read the comments and you should be able to pick up if anything is suspicious. It may just be a coincidence. I don't like things on any website, only leave pos. feedback if my order was exceptional.

    Mine also the same. Fiverr customer support said there was a bugs on their system which they don't resolve yet, hope they're gonna fix it soon though it's not pretty effecting on the sales.

    i second this, however it has no effect on my sales at all
    likes on fiverr mean almost nothing (you can order the gigs by popularity however i'm not experiencing any drop in the sales since this bug occured), just go with the feedbacks
