My gig fall DRASTICALLY when I edit it?

My gig was one of the better performing “rap” gigs on Fiverr (I’m a level 2 seller). When I edit it, it falls drastically in search or disappears completely. Has anyone else had this problem? It’s incredibly disheartening as I was on a good roll - now no business.

If anyone’s bored enough, can you tell me where I rank for “rap” upon searching gigs with the following link?

Thanks,

It might be not displayed for up to 48 hours from when you edit it. Hopefully it will make a reappearance soon.

Please let us know if it does. We have been discussing this for a few days.

I also have edited my gig recently just put a video for my gig and it’s disappear from search and it will be back in 1 day or 2. don’t worry it will have its position

Since you asked,
when searching for ‘rap’, you are on second page under relevance (9th row) and first page under avg review (5th row), at least on my computer.

Thanks man. I’m used to be about 6th overall on the 1st page. So the drop sucks

It’s a known issue. Happens to me too everytime I edit my gigs. Sometimes they vanish completely for many months. I also know a seller who’s gig disappeared for well over a year after editing theirs. It’s like they don’t want you to improve your gigs by editing them, so you should also not do that under any circumstance. The “bug” has been around for a few years at least, so it doesn’t seem to be a bug, so should also not expect it to get fixed. Support also 98% of the time says it’s not a bug if gig is ranked differently or is not even indexed anymore after editing it.
