GIG denied due to TOS voilation after 2 years

Today i got an email notification that my 2 GIGs are violating the Fiverr TOS, but my GIGs were almost live for the last 2 years almost, and i used my own images and description, i don’t why this happened?

I need to know so i can create a new GIG and prevent any future violation because i am not understanding where is the issue.

Any senior suggestion can be very helpful.

Regards,

The reason should be written in the email, can you check it?

In email:

Your GIG has been flagged by our team following a third party complaint claiming your GIG is violating their terms of use.

GIG was published 2 years before and i have 50+ reviews on it.

Thank you

Type matter in terms of violation? Mean if i am selling high DA (Domain Authority) backlinks, DA is Moz.com metric, then this is violation i am doing? Please

Selling/buying backlink is black hat SEO technique that’s not recommended by Google, neither Fiverr. You were selling the service that’s not legal or allowed. For this reason your gig were removed from the marketplace.

As @hedayetsaadi556 said, you are not allowed to sell or buy backlinks.

Sure, your gig was active because Fiverr didn’t find it yet, there are millions of gigs. But they do eventually find them and remove the gig. It’s better to sell something else, black hat SEO stuff is not allowed.

It’s so hurt-breaking, The same thing happens to me too last year. This was my best-selling gig. If any gig removed or denied you will never get it back for sure. I talk to Fiverr Customer Support also.

But you may do another request to the customer support to re-review your gig. They will definitely do it

@seoumer I see you have another backlink gig. Are you concerned about losing it?

I think for your gig it wasn’t just the word “clone” it was the phrase “clone any website” - if you read what CS said. By saying “any website” that probably makes CS think you will clone websites that the buyer doesn’t own the rights to, which might be copyright infringement. If people who want a website cloned won’t normally hold the rights to the website they want cloned it’s probably not a good idea to create a gig for it as you’d probably get in trouble if you did that.

Saying “I will clone your website” (where the website being cloned was owned by the buyer) would probably have been better/okay with CS (though I don’t know whether that would be wanted).
