Is my gig ranked?
In SEO terms, yes. When a user searches for a gig SEO is used, see: https://sellers.fiverr.com/en/article/seo-tricks-for-gig-titles . But, other algorithms may be used alongside this, SEO may not be to only influencing factor in the search results.
My gig is not on the first page of my category anymore, has my rank dropped?
If you are just browsing a category, not using the search function, your gig may be being rotated. This happens to allow all sellers, new and old, a chance to have exposure on the Fiverr website. Your gig does not have a “position” and depending on algorithms will be visible in different positions for each user.
Can I create two accounts on Fiverr/Can I order from myself/Can I message myself?
No. It clearly states in the Fiverr TOS that you cannot have two accounts and any attempt to abuse the system and create either fake reviews or improving your own stats is not permitted. This is common sense. " Multiple Accounts - To prevent fraud and abuse, users are limited to one active account. Any additional account determined to be created to circumvent guidelines, promote competitive advantages, or mislead the Fiverr community will be disabled." https://www.fiverr.com/terms_of_service
