    I stumbled upon an article ranking about Fiverr and how it's "ruining" the SEO industry. I'm not for or against Fiverr, but I did find this analogy worth a laugh over.. haha

    I thinks it's funny...only Noobies need worry because they are the only ones who order SEO stuff from Fiverr.
    SEO savy marketers steer clear UNLESS that have some sort of Twist!!!;)

    There are great gigs on Fiverr, but you have to possess a brain to understand which ones they are. That's not a shot at you guys, but rather at the morons that think they can buy a great 2,000 backlink pyramid for $5.

    The gigs aren't worthless if you know how to use them ...I'm not sure if that's what you're implying or not.

    *obviously some truly are worthless, but there's some gems there as well

    I ranked a site using only GSA & SEnuke from Fiverr
    & it made me 4 figures of profit last month

    There are a few great sellers on Fiverr that know what they are doing
    bit i agree most gigs are utter garbage

    No but I do pass a billboard daily that says Vasectomy Reversals - Get one side done and the other is free! Cheap ball repair sounds good.

    Well, tbh everybody has been broke at least once in their lives.

    Though, that doesn't mean you should buy miracle fiverr gigs.

    Fiverr is a payment processor. I don't see how setting up a Wooforms script on a new Wordpress domain (like 9/10 of the BHW BST services) changes the service you provide.

    It's not Fiverr's fault people are stupid enough to buy 60,000 direct blog comment blasts. This would be like me blaming Paypal or BHW for a subpar service in the BST - it's nonsense.
