    You can't use any of these words/terms anymore on your gig.

    - Edu
    - Gov
    - YouTube
    - Views
    - Blog


    Or any other multiply or repeat "terms/words".

    Wth?? As edu/gov backlinks seller + views seller this really affects me.

    If your gig is an old gig, they will ask you to modify it.

    Believe me, one day.

    Or maybe u can do random edit to your gig, and then, try to save it.

    Guarantee the notification will come out.

    Tip - If anyone deals with edu links or views like OP says then don't edit your gigs at all. Let them find you if they want to crack down on such gigs and not help them with finding you.

    Did fiver say why? Or is it because they are too many people providing services with those terms/words? Maybe because those are closely related to SEO.

    One day maybe fiverr will also ban the word backlinks, or maybe SEO.

    We cannot ask fiverr 'why'. They give simple answers like ' to keep the community safe ' etc.

    You cannot use the same word more than 2 times in the gig description. I experienced the same thing but the thing got accepted when I removed the excessive term.

    I just had gig approved with Youtube in title and description so Must Call Bullshit. I think you're seeing the more stringent enforcement of the "No blackhat marketing services" rule.

    Indeed, today I got "asked" to modify my three gigs, which meant for me following: two minor gigs blocked until editing and one gig with 100+ positives banned for good... All of them for same reason, when I asked support, regarding why that one gig got blocked for good, I got respond in manner that I should be glad they did not block all three of them... Should level 2 sellers receive premium support, I did not experience even basic, helpful one. Time to expand horizons, I guess.
