    For those unaware, Fiverr has now added levels.

    Complete at least 10 gigs with an excellent rating and you get promoted to level 1. On level one you can add an extra to the order of $5 or $10. In the description of the extra, if you end the sentence with a period, you will get an illegal value error.

    It took me a while to figure that out, hahaha..

    (who knows when they fix that)

    They also added a pending feature for gigs. Eh.

    Anyway, you can make more money on Fiverr now. Even self-order 10 gigs, rate yourself highly, and get level $1 at the price of $10.

    Warning: I have only done the above to turn my gigs in to express gigs by ordering new ones, once. Fiverr might notice if you do 10+ orders with the same paypal account (different linked emails).

    pending gigs are not new at all, they need to go under moderation queue since fiverr started, but yes, it was easier back then, filters weren't that tight, basically you could have almost any gig going live w/o too much moderation, i have most of my gigs from that time, most of them can't get approved now

    one more thing: updating your old gigs isn't the best idea (just in case if you care about them), even if you edit the title only a bit, it can be your gig will go under review, then they suspend it, even if it was approved before, happened to me

    I skipped last week. :p

    I've actually never had a gig "pending" before that I can recall, until they announced these new changes. But good information about the warning on updating old gigs.

    I am already level 2 when fiverr implemented the level set-up. Hope this will increase the orders for my gigs.

    1. use all the 20 slots you can have
    2. stuff your titles, description with keywords you want to target
    3. offer more than the top gig in the same category, there're always people who look for the best deals and it happens they buy from people with no feedback
    4. you can be a Lvl 1 seller pretty fast, so you'll have a pledge which means more exposure to your gigs in the search
    5. reread OP's thread starter post, he already gave you an advice
    +1 don't forget to ask for feedback, that's all you got there

    I second the 'no making tweaks to your titles' idea. I did that and had a bunch of gigs denied.

    I also uploaded a video, but didnt say it was offered exclusively on fiverr and they denied it annnd suspended all of my duplicate gigs.
