    I'm guessing this should be something so simple I just have no idea how people do it. So many times people talk about making money with fiverr and how great it is yet somehow I can't even seem to sell 1 of my gigs. This is strange considering my gigs are good because I have seen similar gigs to mines posted by other users that are on the featured page and these users seem to have a lot of orders to fill yet somehow I can't even seem to get one. That tells me there is a lot of competition out there. It doesn't matter what gig I post or what service I offer no one buys. I do graphic design mostly and I have my portfolio so people can see my work. It's not like I am some graphic designing newbie or something. So like what do you find helps you in getting targeted traffic to your gigs? I would like to start making money with fiverr but it seems easier said then done these days.

    I used to get good targeted traffic off eBay, not for SEO gigs though, but you could do.

    Does that actually work though? I bought a ton of traffic gigs from fiverr themselves and used them to target my website and my fiverr gigs and I didn't end up making a penny and I contacted some of the users who left positive feedback only for them to tell me they wish they could take it back because they didn't make any money with traffic gigs either. Some people even said they did some research and found out the traffic you get is from computer bots that give your website fake views and clicks. I'm just wondering if traffic that I can buy from ebay would work or would it also be similar to fiverr bots so I wouldn't make any sales?

    Be aware the graphic design is a very competitive niche.
    Instead of that you should get traffic from fiverr, not to obtain traffic for fiverr.
    Try to get 10+ positive reviews to your gigs. People are very conservative.

    I'm not sure I completely understand. I tried getting traffic from fiverr and I did not make a penny in sales to my website. The traffic was fake "bot" traffic that was sent to my site and I was not aware of this until after I purchased a bunch of gigs that turned out to be fake. I was able to report this to fiverr and get some of the money I paid for gigs back but not all of them. I'm not sure fiverr is the right place to get traffic for me considering I have been burned too many times from fiverr itself.

    At this point I am less concerned with website traffic and more concerned with how to get traffic to get people to buy my gigs because it's getting to the point where my gigs have been up for months with no sales so I may just close my account down if I can't make any money from the gigs since it's useless to have a gig if no one buys it. With targeted traffic I figured we skip the competition and jump right to my gig but idk how that would work out.

    Create fiverr account using usa ip and create gig, you will start getting sales from day 1.

    By off eBay, I do not mean I bought shit traffic, I mean I put ads on eBay. What I used to do is pretend I am selling links off one of my websites (this is where it probably will not go well for Fiverr), by pretending I was selling a link, I was allowed to put a link to my website. My websites was slot machine related, so I would find a slot machine that sells well on eBay, and what you can also play online. Because the ad had the slot machine title in the description, people would search the slot and click through to my website. I guess you could do something similar for Fiverr, but selling SEO. From what I can remember ads on eBay cost barely anything, and at the time showed up in the same search results as listings.

    Sorry I don't think this is serious were you serious? I already live in the USA so my IP address is already from USA and no I have not made a single penny from day one. I am not sure what you are doing differently but if what you are suggesting is that I use a USA IP and make a fiverr gig I have already done both of those things and have not made a single penny sorry.

    When you say selling ads on ebay are you referring to the ads that show up on the sides of the page like the ads you see to the right of your facebook page when you go on facebook? I was just wondering if those were the kinds of ads you were talking about buying. I guess I will have to do researching on SEO then because I know absolutely nothing about SEO. I mean I have heard the term many times before but I don't have the foggiest idea how it works or what to do about it so I'll have a look and see what I can find then.
