I just wanted to share with you my poor experience on Fiverr and also asking if that is something you found common when you hire people in Digital Marketing.
I wanted to do a test, to see the level of quality of 2 gigs and both were at number zero, basically worthless.
One gig promoted backlinks, actually, HQ (High Quality) backlinks from around the work. It ends up to be a black hat SEO where the seller used urls redirect injection to simulate backlink traffic. Very bad. This seller still works on Fiverr with the same GIG and there are also people who are happy with the service, maybe because they don’t have a clue about what they got. By the way I have 10 years experience working in Marketing so I have at this stage little bit of understanding of my work
Another Seller promoted to provide 40K traffic to a website, “Real” traffic. It turned out the traffic is 100 fake. Seller gives you a link shortener were you can see lots of clicks from coming from different well-known websites such as Linkedin, Facebook, etc. Unfortunately, all the clicks are generated from bots which then doesn’t generate sessions to your website. If you are not aware of this, maybe because you don’t have the experience you might be happy but actually check on Google Analytics and your traffic is not improved.
I have the impression that checking these gigs on SEO and Digital Marketing sounds with the same note of fake traffic, traffic bots and misleading gigs.
I am wondering why Fiverr doesn’t check properly on these sellers and when there is at least one buyer who leaves a negative feedback, they don’t investigate.
