Gig descriptions?


#1

Is there a limit to how many times a gig listing can be edited? It’s always a good idea to occasionally tweak messaging, but for some reason I feel that might not be good here.



Advice from the experts, please?

Thanks, guys!

I’ve done this quite a bit over the course of the last two years and there doesn’t seem to be a limit or anything of the like. Its a really good school of thought to continually upgrade images, and a more detailed description.



Cheers,

I have never found a limit. I will say, however, Fiverr from time to time changes the “rules” about a gig listing. So you might not be able to change a gig again if you’re unwilling to say… reduce the number of times you use a keyword.



I’ve had this problem.

I edit my gigs’ descriptions constantly. Why would there be a limit when you need to evolve with your gigs?

Reply to @hotwebideas: Dang, I don’t know why. Maybe for the same reason that half of the highest rated gigs are for things that violate the Fiverr® ToS. This place doesn’t always make sense! That’s why I asked. :wink:

Reply to @anarchofighter: You’re saying if I try to change the description to something with too many keywords I won’t be able? Or that once it is changed I can’t change it back?

While I don’t know if it was a fluke… the last time I started a new gig I saw it on the front page and decided I wanted to edit the title (for radio commercials)… after the edit I never saw it on the front page again. This was NOT the case with the first voiceover gig I made, and I don’t know how common that is either.

Reply to @kiffinyjean: I’m not even going to think for a split second that I understand how the Fiverr ™ backend works, but I’d guess while you were literally editing the gig, it wasn’t live; once you finished and re-saved it was in a different place in the queue. Now what the criteria for that queue is, well, who knows.

Reply to @itsyourthing:



If you try to change anything and you have a keyword repeat, it will say “too much use of the same word” and not let you save it.



So you can either NEVER change it, or lose the keywords.

Reply to @oldbittygrandma: Exactly correct.
