    Hi,

    I was offering web scraping related services on Fiverr. But today when I opened my mail I get an email from Fiverr that 'Your Gigs are denied on Fiverr".

    I have 4 Gigis related to scraping such as Email Scraping, Google SERP Scraping, Content Scraping, Meta Data Scraping.

    I have earned $$$ from these Gigs but now all Gigs are Denied by Fiverr editor team.

    Any one here on BHW like me?

    Now I am finding other way to serve my web scraping service.

    They must coming under pressure legally!
    Try freelancer and also maybe get a BST on here?

    Just remember things online change fast, so expect the un-expected.

    I guess their editorial team wants people to dress up in a banana, orange costume and sing happy birthday!

    I just signed up and created a gig on Fiverr and am having fun with it actually.
    I am creating FB pages for people and have had 2 orders completed so far and it's only been 2 days.

    I need to learn how to drive more traffic to my gig, but otherwise it's going well for me.

    I've been a seller for more more than 6 months, my current gigs are look similar and so far I generate sales well.

    Perhaps you should see Fiverr TOS and check if your previous gigs were against it.
    If there's nothing wrong with them, then contact support to clarify your issue.

    Good luck

    i had some gigs denied and when creating them new they stayed ...... play around with the description.
    i tried editing the title after creation as well but that was always manually checked.
    but try to create a gig with the title as good as possible and use the tags which are woring for your gig.

    Nothing sucks here. I actually personally contacted Fiverr to know if such gigs are allowed on Fiverr. They said their editors are not allowing such gigs not because they will face some outside heat but they just dont want to have such gigs on their site. Maybe they dont want Fiverr to be called as a land of scammers..You cant even sell hotmails or other illegal bulk stuff. SEO is fine though as its just skill there

    It looks like Fiverr wants to stick with more 'legit' services. This means stuff like dressing up as a banana, singing happy birthday songs in animal voices - you know ..the 'normal' stuff.

    But seriously, just follow the T.O.S and don't push the rules and you'll be fiZZZZine.

    Did they tell you the reason your gigs were suspended ? If not maybe you should open ticket if you haven't done that already.

    You could probably sell popular but legit things as a front, and add info to files you attach to your finished gig about your 'other' services.

    I think you should upsell your gigs, so once you get a regulary stream of sales you should try to upsell your services so that you can earn more money.
