    So some really bad things happened an hour ago. Apparently I mentioned "freelancer" in a message. It was purely incontextual as the buyer wanted to rank for the terms. So I said its not possible with a 5$ gig to rank for keywords that the top freelancing sites such as freelancer.com, odesk.com, fiverr.com are ranking for.

    Thats was the complete thing. And now all my levels removed and from 15-25+ gigs a day to almost 0 so far. I always made sure to follow all the rules but see what happens when you follow the rules.

    So guys take note that this is also another of their invisible rules that you shouldn't use these words. Sent a message to support, lets see how it goes.

    You should be fine, they're a little bit stupid with those hidden rules, I remember when I had problems with clients that had fiverr clone websites and Fiverr blocked their details lol...but didn't messaged me or the client about that :)

    Been there mate. I accidentally mentioned seoclerks and my account got disabled. Lesson learned, never reply to customer asking if they can rank their sites or videos for 5 bucks

    That sucks. Fiverr sure are a bit juvenile sometimes.
    Let us know if you hear from support.

    You're lucky if they'll restore your level. I bet they'll reply copy pasted text crap about other clone sites rule

    yeah, I had started a social exchange site called "ILikeTraffic" last year and tried to buy some gigs for it off Fiverr and they instantly knocked me down to level 1 with no warning when I said that phrase in a message.

    Pretty shitty they have a hidden "list" and don't share what that list is so you don't violate it unknowingly

    Please do update us what they say. Just tell them that you had no intentions to divert the traffic as you were just explaining that the kind of work isn't suitable for $5. Fiverr shouldn't act such a bitch though. They already have enough traffic and should respect the sellers. Monopoly is going in their head i guess

    Yeah, you should be fine once you talk
    with support. That said, a lot of Fiverr
    success has to do with momentum of
    incoming orders. Hopefully it won't take
    you too long to start getting orders in.

    Any updates on this?
    Me being a Fiverr seller as well am concerned with this happening and how to go about resolving it.

    Thanks.

    That just happened to me. I have been selling there for over two years and I mentioned to one of my clients something about another Fiverr clone site that I used once. Instantly my levels were taken away and now they are about to shut my account down completely apparently. Fiverr has made me some money but now I need to start all over. Extremely frustrating to say the least.

    Don't mention websites in any of your messages or Fiverr competition websites
    they will kick your ass..
