    Hello guys ! I am making this post because probably many of you use fiverr to make some money . Now the things changed . The search "engine" from fiverr finds the TOP RATED gigs now ... so that the sellers with a small amount of reviews can't be found anymore. (including me) I don't know if this is permanent or not but this is the situation now . I guess it happend to many of you ( less orders or no orders at all ) ..I was personally getting 5-10 or even 15 orders per day... now...No order for some time .

    The search rank on Fiverr now only depends on how many orders you have in the moment, and how much you receive positive feedback. This way they can separate good from poor gigs. Means they got in quality. Now ask some of your old clients(on your conversation page with them) if they are interested in purchasing a gig(tell them about a bonus you will give them as loyal costumers). With the feedback you will get traffic, this doesn't means sales. If it's good you will make money. The old days was easy. Now it's bit complicated. Good luck! :D

    how can it be that you have small amount of reviews if you used to receive 5-15 orders per day? in my experience 30-50% of the buyers leave a review, with the new system this rate is even higher

    things are regularly changing on fiverr, but it's the same shit for top rated sellers for some time now
    by now fiverr has a more difficult algo to rank gigs than what google has to rank sites :)

    and i beg to differ, these new subcategories should help newbie sellers
    i haven't experienced any changes in the amount of orders though

    I go to fiver every now and again to see if i can find any decent, cheap backlinks. I always come away empty handed, though, as it is full of junk listings that i wouldn't take if they were free.

    My friend (BHW member for looong time) from the showing of the subcategories makes 1000% more money, which is 10 times more, because his gig it's third on the corresponding subcategory. He can't deliver as mush as he receive orders. I belive it's possible to make money with fiverr. Good money, only you need to make your own system. You need to scale up after you start making some money and make thousands of dollars. I have also friends who has the same gigs on fiver and made $0, but made $100 in very short time on some fiverr clones. You can try there also, even I had never sold anything there.

    So you think Fiverr is dead !!!

    You really should think again . . . give Fiverr a visit and decide if you still think Fiverr is dead.

    Fiverr has had a facelift . . . new features and improvements.

    Not the kind of thing to expect from something that is "DEAD"

    Oh . . . my gosh - you guys really got it wrong.

    Same as the other freelance site PeoplePerHour - great for buyers not for sellers. It definitely isn't dead.
