    Hey, nice experiment OP :)
    I have a doubt here.
    Either you gig REALLY sucks (which I doubt) or there is something wrong with the experiment.
    Don't you think its weird that of the thousands of HUMAN clicks, you haven't received a SINGLE PM inquiring about your services (or have you?)?
    Let me know what you think of it OP.

    Thanks

    I don't have any google play adverts - it belongs to the was Master of all things Android @vinku to say, but he was not displeased by the experiment ;)

    The "experiment" itself was not to prove anything simply look at the results.
    Granted, that > gig did not generate any "sales" of email checking.
    Did it rank higher in Google - yes
    Did the PA go up - yes From 40 > 60

    Q: Did I receive any other inquiries because of the experiment ?
    Because I see it as the a direct result of the experiment I will include an answer to that, only because the question was asked.
    A: Yes lots :)


    Yeah its not been de-indexed or my gig been taken down, the PA hasn't budged either still @ 60

    I think most of the traffic comes from blog admins checking out your site. I just spammed my own blog by accident during this experiment and was asked to approve and with WordPress the URL links are clickable right from the notification email. So this is basically the same as contact form spamming but more passive and with some slight SEO advantages.

    I think they cleaned up a lot. They are pushing only high quality expensive gigs.

    A very interesting thread to read! I tried to use fiverr years ago but I didn't really succeed. Maybe I have more success if I have some backlinks here and there and get that extra boost. Thanks a lot for sharing. Appreciate it!

    Anyone got any sales yet? All I've seen so far is tons of traffic that may or may not be from humans. I've tried bit.ly links, YouTube links, blogger.com links, my own website inks...all the same result. Hundreds of clicks but no buyers, comments, reactions or inquiries. Just seems odd to me that so many clicks don't result in anything "human like".

    WOW! Number 2 for a keyword that NO ONE ever uses and 0 sales made while you added $6 to your electricity bill for spamming dead blogs for a week.....
    Looks like a winner... not!

    And BTW.... if I use the same search query I don't see your link in the first page of google....
    You probably only see it ranking high for yourself because google knows you have been to that page before and therefor thinks it might be important for You.... ( I'm new here, posting screenshot of google results was blocked.... )

    I read this whole thread because ppl said they were going to post results for facebook, twitter, or instagram. No one has posted anything on it. I can only assume it works and no one wants to share the secret, but i know your secret. :devil:

    nope, nothing really appears to be human about this traffic. I've tried it with all kinds of stuff, no inquiries, no optins, no adsense revenue, nadda. Just LOADS of traffic and that's it. I think we're just seeing clicks from anti spam software like akismet. I thought they were coming in too quick to be from organic sources. Same thing happens with "open rates" when you send emails, most of those opens are triggered by anti spam software checking out your message. Oh well, we tried...

    Brilliant. I'm going to give this a try with an old blog I have laying around. First I need scrapebox and some proxies I suppose....

    I think rather than exploding all the backlinks at once, it should have been drip feed, so to look natural to Google. Google spiders are running constantly and always crawling for links.

    What's really interesting here is that your page ranks for nothing. not a single keyword with search volume.

    So this method of boosting your metrics will scam fools, but any SEO will stay away from this kind of link profile.

    I don't understand your point ? Where when you create a fiverr gig do you put in your keywords ? In the title ?
    Is there a yoast plugin I missed for fiverr ?
    Obviously "email" or "list" is a really easy keyword to rank for in your opinion ?
    Of course I made it plain in the first post "How to rank top in google for your fiverr gig" ! or was it "How to rank top in Google for any keyword using a Fiverr gig " !! ???
    Oh wait ... no it says "lets see what happens its an experiment"
    I find it a bit condescending that you call the readers "Fools" but you are French after all.
