    Hi everyone, I post this thread to share with you my thinking about Selling Backlinks on Fiverr after 2years worked with (my account's PIGHEAD).
    I joined Fiverr when I was a biotechnology student. Now Im 23 year olds and decided to become a fulltime IMer. My main income comes from Fiverr ($1200/month), that is a small number with you, but Im a super start with my friends and family in Vietnam. Im trying improve my fiverr services day by day and test new make money methods. Ok, that's too long for introduction.

    Now Im sharing my experience about Fiverr with you.

    1. Not all Fiverr gigs are rubbish. I have many repeated customers outsource me to build backlinks for their clients. I knew some SEO services on BHW're using Fiverr gig to re-sell. If you had bad experience with Fiverr sellers, maybe there 2 reasons:
    - You are not lucky. There are good and bad guys on Fiverr. You should only buy from sellers who have toprate, or have many good reviews, or choose the one who supply refund without any question.
    - Your site's ranking decreased or not improved after using Fiverr service? Just recheck your SEO strategy. You should combine some gigs with schedule to have the best effects. No gig can helps your site jump to page 1. Please use fiverr service with knowledge. For example, you can buy 20000 xrumer profile backlinks as layer2 of article directories backlinks.

    2. The owner of Fiverr gig's human with emotions. I faced with some really irresponsible customers who treated me like a thief, a scammer. I remember a buyer named me scammer and I shocked 3days. Im always redo, delete my backlinks or refund if my customers not happy, but still received bad words.

    3. About sellers competition. New fiverr sellers're always try to increase their quantity of backlinks. At the first day at Fiverr, I sold only 300 backlinks for $5, but now it must be 700 backlinks because the new seller increased the number of backlinks to compete me. I saw 2 gigs that selling backlinks all Senuke modules by running senuke 72hrs. The biggest seo services on Fiverr's selling 40000 comments backlinks for $5. WTF!!! Why dont they increase the quality instead of quantity? If everyone increase the quantity, sellers always get the disadvantages.

    4. About Fiverr staffs. Almost of them are helpful and friendly. You should contact them kindly.

    5. About negative feedback (thumbdown). If you got negative feedbackl, try your best to convince your buyer to agree to remove the feedback.
    - If the buyer agree, then submit ticket and ask for remove feeback.
    - If they dont reply your message, or have bad attitude, try your best to contact and convince them many times. Then report to Fiverr staff that they dont reply or have bad attitude, Fiverr staffs will help you to solve problem.
    Remember that Fiverr staffs will only remove the negative reviews when the buyer agree or they have bad attitude

    Do you have any experience with Fiverr? Just share it here :)

    The things I hate about Fiverr is there support. OR when you fund your fiverr account with a ton of money and can't get it back out. Instead they give you fiverr credits... sucks

    There's a way to cash out fiverr credits that you create a new selling account. Then buy your gig by using your credit. That way will cost you 25% that's suck.

    Regarding 3. sellers competition

    You don't really need to increase your amounts of links to be able to get customers. It's enought to rank on fiverr for the keyword and you will get customers.

    It's easy day some months ago, we can spam keywords to get 1st on Auto page of Fiverr, but now everything's not easy. Fiverr's strictly with stupid stuff, such as they not allow your description words contain the term 'link' more than 2 times

    "If you have a good strategy and know what you are buying on fiverr then its a great place."

    Many buyers think of SEO as a magic that will get their site on page 1 not having any idea about the keyword competition and strategy. Their sites are always at risk as they don't know what gig can destroy their rankings. SEO professionals do not charge for nothing...

    You have good principles which is why you are doing good. Focussing on the product and customer instead of the money

    You're right. Im just focused on products and customer supports. I built the truth and converted customers into repeated customers. But I do that too late, so my gig 's not in top right now

    Fiverr is backing themselves into a corner by doing this. They are making all the self-respecting and actually GOOD sellers leave from the abuse. In 2 years form its going to be a couple of top rated sellers and a bunch of low quality sellers.

    The thing bout removing your negative feedback. a buyer left me feedback on what he shouldnt have so i contacted customer support and they removed the feedback. BUT the buyer just added it back again so once again i contacted support but this time they told me they cant remove it without the buyers consent. So i just submitted about 6 tickets and finally one of them they agreed to remove it. so basically it just depends on who you get

    my advice never contact the fiverr support even you got in trouble their support is sucks and will never help you

    if you contact them to remove some dishonest reviews they will disappear your whole gigs from search and maybe they close your account

    this is just advice from my alot of years experience with them

    I can relate to this.
    Got scammed before and the support guy helped me get back my money.

    They are good, but slow because of the sheer volume.

    The support speed depends on your Level. At Toprate level, I got my support at 2minutes.

    You should contact them via fiverr.zendesk.com , dont try to email them. They love that way and it's easy to track. They dont remove your gig out of their search.

    Try to make friend with them and they

    I also always get answers within MAXIMUM 30 mins (only Level 2 seller).

    Sometimes the Fiverr support is....horrible - specially if you have GIGs in "moderation" if you change a small thing, it needs 1-2 days that the GIGs going again live.

    Buyers are sometimes really cheek and are thinking, for 5 bucks they can buy the world, BUT in total (i only have ~200/ month) its a nice way to get fresh customers.

    Hi,
    I'm not to IM world :)
    I use fiverr as a seller and buyer.
    * As a buyer I bought a gig to post my website link to 250,000 follower i was hoping to get 10,000 visit to my site. but I was expecting high. I didn't got single visit, my "egyptian food ricipe" site is still under 200 visit a month with no Profit.
    " BTW I hope to buy a gig from you as a try"

    * As seller.
    I'm a graphic designer I made lots of gigs but the only one that got orders was the " busienss card design"
    I made total 1000$ in a about a year.
    The customers are so demandy, I do double side with unlimited revisions, the order and its feedback can take 1 to 2 hours to complete.
    many times I do another concepts for the client otherwise they will give a bad rating.
    many times I refund the buyer not to get a bad ratting after he got his work ready for print.
    in the same time I got returning customer and really good ones.

    The design gigs are good buy they take hard work and its all about the customer being happy, and this is something not easy lots of times.
    I hope to find something more profit.
    I have all my customer details especially there emails, i have now about 200 emails and keep thinking how to get binifit of it by contacting them and sell something to them. as most of them are people how starting new business and buildinnew websites, but till now I have no idea what to do.

    thanks for letting me say my story :)
    wish the best for you all.

    Is the whole fiverr business becoming saturated? Perhaps the sheer amount of volume on the site is causing considerable slowdown...
