I’m on fiverr since 2013 and made more than 2.000+ sales. Now I support my family doing work on fiverr full time, basicaly… I depend on Fiverr so I do my best to give all my customers a great experience using this websites, this reflects on my stats 1800+ 5 stars, 29 4 stars and only one negative rating. Also in the last 30 days, I got Response Rate 100%, Orders Completed 96% and Delivered on Time 97%. Made this introduction just to show how much effort I put up in my work on Fiverr and how much I try to improve my services every day.
Now comes the bad part, most of my sales come from a single gig with more than 1.000 reviews. The gig was showing on the top row on results when searching for “youtube banner” and was selling great. After I edited one of my extras price from $10 to $15, the gig will NOT SHOW AT ALL in the search for “youtube banner” altho this keyword was in my title, my gig description and gig keywords. It was showing only if the searched keywords contained a capital letter, like for example “youtube Banner” or “Youtube banner” and this was pretty bad because no one searches with capital letters in the keywords, I could see that in the gig stats that dropped a lot. I opened a ticket 6 days ago trying to figure why this is happening, but each member of the support team told me that this is not a problem, that this is normal. What do you guys think? I’m not the only one that is afraid to edit a gig because it will not show in searches anymore. The gig was not showing anymore in “best selling” category at all, even tho it has 1.000 + reviews but other gig with not even a single review were showing in the search, is this normal?
After multiple replays from the staff members I understood that there is nothing that will be done, I don’t blame anyone on this, a milion things can go wrong when taking care of a website as big as Fiverr.
I decided to edit the gig title, description, keywords… kept it similar but I improved as much as possible, even some of the portfolio photos with this occasion. After this, the gig dose not show in the searches AT ALL no matter what I type. I assume it is in the “editorial mode”? meaning that it needs to have the changes approved. (I might be wrong). Ok, the last replay to my ticket was on “Sunday at 19:23” and after that, I wrote 3 replays and not a single response. Considering the fact that I depend on this gig to pay my rent and support my family, I opened another ticket just to ask for someone to check and approve the gig so it will show in searches at all considering the gig was edited 2 days a go. I explained the situation and excused my self for the second ticket. The next thing that happened was that the ticket was closed as “solved” with not a single reply and the first ticket still doesn’t have an answer.

What do you guys say about this? A lot of times I ended up working until 4-5 AM trying to build something that now ends up like this?.. I can’t tell how disappointed I am. I always considered fiverr a great website and recommended it to many of my friends that are now working on here or made money on this website at some points. Allways appreciated the support team that solved tons of my tickets (believe me, there are pages upon pages of tickets opened by me since i work on here)… and now this?
Once again, I opened this topic to share my experience and also to try and find someone on the support team to respond to my ticket because right now, my second ticket was closed without an answer and my first ticket has no answer since 3 days a go, but the “last activity” was 4 hours a go. I understand you are busy… but i just need my gig checked and approved. Ticket Id: 2650768
Sorry for any grammar mistakes… it’s my second language
EDIT: I got no response from the Fiverr support team since Sunday at 19:23. Altho the “recent activity” and “Assigned to” has changed multiple times. All I want is for my gig to get reviewed and accepted because it’s not showing AT ALL in searches no matter what I search for because it was edited a few days back. I’m amazed nobody cares.
EDIT 2: After I sent an email that ended up opening a ticket but without any category selected (I assumed it ended up to another support departament) someone answered in just a few hours and helped me out. The gig is now showing in searches BUT I bet you can’t find it, it’s not showing at all if you search for “youtube banner”, altho that’s what I do, the keyword is in my title, gig description and gig keywords. My gig has 1000+ 5 stars review but it seems it’s not “relevant” to this keywords? and it’s not like there is a lot of competition… I see gigs with 0 reviews. I hope it will rank back up…
The first ticket still has no answer. I assume you need to find the right people in the support team that will help you out instead of ignoring you. I would like to thank Diego that answered and got my gig back in the searches in just a few hours. I’m curious how many more days do I have to wayt for the first ticket to get an answer, it’s only been 4 already.
