    I paid seller on fiverr extra to make the link ********. Its on a good powerful site. Now a year on the backlink is nofollow. Don't know how long its been like that for.

    They are not replying to messages.

    Is it ok to let everyone know who the seller is so they don't get ripped off?

    Thanks

    ah yes, out come the keyboard warriors lol

    Anyway, it was more than a fiverr. It was a good site with strong metrix.

    Its not the money its just annoying and no was not relying on this one backlink alone lol

    A year on? LOL - They probably got a slap and made all external links nofollow for a reason ;)

    Think about it!!

    p.s you paid $5 for a guest post lol....Was it in their terms and conditions that it would be up for years and years?

    Not all their links are nofollow. They have not been penalized. Its a PR4 site. DA35 PA30. 8 year old site. 1000+ word article. So yes a nice powerful site to have a backlink on and paid more than a $5 for it for the 3rd time...

    It seems ridiculous that you would make a thread about a link you purchased for peanuts 12 months ago. Let it go Bro

    It wasn't peanuts!! for the tenth time of saying!!!! I paid extra for her to write the article 1000+ words, I paid extra for the ******** link!!! It was $65.

    And it not about the money!!! Its the principal! You pay for something that should be there for the life of the site not a couple of months!

    I think everyone is fixated on the fact it was fiverr. Big deal!!, A deal is still a deal, the site is still a PR4 aged site with good metrix, the 1000 word article is very good, the seller has over 1000 positive feedback, over 200 buyers of that particular gig (who have also probably been ripped off).

    And do you guys all really think some the services on the market place on here aren't fiverr gigs with a new label and an inflated price?? more fool you if you think your getting something special lol.

    And no, it doesn't say in the small print that the gig will last more than a year, and it also didn't say it would last a few months you utter spastic!!!

    I don't think people were trying to give you abuse but a link that you had for a year probably isn't worth getting stressed about.
    People spend $$$$$ on single links so $65 isn't the end of the world. No link is guaranteed for life.
    If you really feel that you have been scammed then post the link to the Fiverr gig and we can see what the seller promised.

    Was thinking this myself, Fiverr isn't exactly the place for "quality backlinks".

    OP, you're gonna have to suck this up and realize that the only way to get backlinks that never get deleted, is to have 100% control over everything; meaning a private PBN or owning your own web 2.0's.

    While your intent is good, OP. It's better to leave your review on the seller's page and warn his potential buyers.

    Lol it's common knowledge nowadays to stay well away from fiverr for anything backlink related, just don't make the same mistake twice.

    For $65, you could have set up your own Guest blog with high metrics.

    tony20 what world are you living in? Every transaction online has a chance of not being exactly what you wanted. Moment you pay should be moment you said goodbye to your money. Everything is either low or high risk gamble. If you are emotionally attached to your money, don't spend it. You wanting world to adapt to your needs is stupidest thing i've ever heard. Registered in 2008? You're slow learner.

    Lol I learned my lesson from fiverr a long time ago, some of the fuckers there wanted money to remove their piece of shit links after I realized how spammy they actually were. Every now and then you'll find a decent link that sticks, but these days I would rather spend money on my own pbn. Dont get hurt over a nofollow link, you should be happy its even live lmao. I would buy another gig off this person and ask them if they could change the link back to ********. Ive done this but it was only because the site was legit, even though paying extra wasn't part of the terms when I originally got the post.
