    this site make me crazy...
    i just start to sell there instagram shoutouts few months ago... and was 1st in search results.. the they start to disappear my gig every time for different reason... just appera after contact them.. and then they decide to totally delete my gig with no reason, and every contact with there support give different response (i think they just have automatic response)...

    and i start over again... and after several sales they do it again... now even strangers... i told to re upload the gig pic, and after that they just delete my gig...

    my thought that fiverr dont wanna help anyone get sales from there sites, they want the buyers bring customers from outside, cause every time i asked why i'm not indexed they ask me to share my gig in sites and social media, and when i say if that what i do i can sell them directly...

    so... any alternative?

    Your gig must not be very high-quality. Also, are your reviews good? How many orders have you gotten with your gig? How is your gig SEO? How is your English?

    What level seller are you?
    They receive 100's of messages from people every day complaining that they aren't getting sales, that their gigs aren't showing up in the search results, etc. It's important to stress the fact that you've sold over 200 orders, and have had all positive reviews.
    Basically, you need to stand out from the rest if you want to get any help.

    Maybe you had a couple of bad reviews or you got reported for something?
    There must be a reason you just have to find out what it is.

    Why depend on Fiverr to push your gigs in the first place? Create a 'gig blog,' do a 300+ word write up about every gig you offer, put your gig url in the post. Promote the blog urls about your gigs everywhere. If they delete your gig, reload it and switch the old promotional url on your blog post to the new one. You stay in control of the production and the exposure this way, and those should be your twin goals as a IM freelancer.

    Fiverr is a bunch of dopes. They don't even know how to fix their own stuff. My account has two favorite folders which really makes it difficult to use. Tried to get them to fix it and they basically just said they can't. Marked it as complete after pretending they would fix it for 2 months. Their solution at the end of the day was to just delete it and start a new one. I feel your pain if you are trying to make money working with those people.

    Fiverr is already getting you customers, because its brand name and standardized set-up assures customers about the delivery of offered services that your no-name freelancing efforts may not. Fiverr is about providing a common trust platform for buyers and sellers, where sellers know a reliable sales funnel and optimal regular price point ($5) is already figured out for them, and where buyers know they have a simple, cheap service marketplace (with escrow built in) to go to, shop for their gig.

    The recommendation features on Fiverr are primarily about helping the customers shop, not about helping the seller market. Fiverr is not about optimizing the promotion of everybody's individual gig url on behalf of sellers, it's mainly about optimizing the provider-customer interface for the transaction, on behalf of buyers. It could take you months or years of effort to do that with your own custom, unbranded, untrusted service. So running a blog that promotes your gig urls on Fiverr is the best way to fill the marketing gap as a seller, not relying on the site to do everything for you.

    ok... so you work in fiverr... anyway your answer exactly like there answers... but i will ignore that and argue with u...
    in all the internet where there a search all the indexed products/sites/whatever will show... and ranked im a way that the site algorithm decide... but there no other examples that u will unindexed and no one can found just cause you dont bring them visits... i was the 1st in search result... have 5 stars... response fast, and good to customer... but every few day i disappear... and the trick is just send them message and the they will add u again and give a fool excuse like that i update my gig and they wanted to review and several lies...
    its like your site will disappear from google cause u dont ask people to enter your search resault in google... and if u as u say.... how its help customer to remove good sellers??? why to remove? if u think i'm not good enough rank me at last results.....

    Sometimes they just wipe most of the gigs in a certain category or found by a certain keyword. They especially like to wipe social media signals related gigs.

    I don't work for Fiverr (and spend more of my time on SEOClerks), but I think I do understand their logic, which is to say there IS a logic to how they operate. Just saying, you want continuous optimal ranking from a site that never said it offered such. You want permanent high placement or fast restoration of a high ranking, even if your gig is frequently not available. I don't know of any search engine that would guarantee that.

    Fiverr seems to prefer to rotate the list of recommended gigs (to spread the wealth of exposure around to more recommended sellers), and the consistent presence of a gig may be a silent factor. Delivering new visitors may also be a factor, but then that's not much to ask for in exchange for the free ad placement they are giving your gig. The "giving them visits" issue could be solved (in the direction of keeping you ranked) by, well, giving them visits, in the form of promoting your gig urls outside of Fiverr.

    that they are rotate the list i lived with that... but delete the gig after 200 orders and this is what they write (after changing reason after contact them):

    DENY REASONS

    Your Gig requires modification - Have you checked to see if your Gig title, description, tag or image violates our Terms of Service?

    and that after i changed any thing they asked and they dont say what in my title bother them...

    and now they just delete my gig after 1 day...

    and to say that they give me a free ad is so ridiculous... they take 20% from me, and about 15% from the buyers... so its not free at all...

    It's free from the point of view that the fee they take comes out of your profit, not upfront out of your pocket, and only if you complete a sale. They could make you immediately pay to post a gig, regardless of whether it leads to a sale, but they don't, thank goodness.

    I'll agree it's unfair that Fiverr's system appears to trigger a new review, or a deletion if you make any change to a gig, even if it's a change requested by the site. It may be a soft-edge way for them to remove gigs they just don't like (the social media sites may be pressuring them to increasingly disapprove of or delete gigs that sell likes, followers etc).
