Hope you’re good today.
My name is Dev.
I gave up on Fiverr many times. But a few months ago i came back and i think everything is going … almost well.
(Note: I stopped cause i didn’t have time for Fiverr jobs)
So…i tried (like everyone else here) to promote my services and “rank up” my gig.
(Note: I’m aware that the Fiverr’s search algorithm brings the whole word of sellers upside down. And I’m still patient and positive that all the issues will be fixed as they should. )
So today i was checking my placement in search “results” & “recommended result”(category: full website creation)
And i noticed that my 5 stars rated gig with many happy clients, is at the bottom of every search result not even in the first 5 pages (Its okay, I’m used to that)
Then i noticed something really weird. A guy at the 1st page that provides the same services like I do. He is using 1 of my gig images that i made in photoshop from scratch(not random google image). Plus…He got the same portfolio images from (probably fake) orders.
Isn’t it crazy?
A guy that trying to catch clients with my projects + lower rating is higher than me in search results.
This tickled my nerves a little bit.
So i immediately asked him if he can remove my gig image and my projects kindly.
He ignored me (as i expected) while he was online the whole day.
I report it to customer support. And we’ll see what is going to happen.
I know some people will say you shouldn’t have to post this issue until it will get resolved.
But i think sellers should be careful when there are people that copy your business and gain more with your effort. It’s kinda unfair.
And please don’t tell me the whole life is unfair.
I got banned from sending offers to any buyer in “buyers request” section. Only cause i were new and typed the sentence: "do you need a PayPal gateway on your website? The word paypal ruined me for 3 months while these people are ruining this website freely.
Sorry for all that mumbling. I would love to know your opinion on this issue, cause I think I’m not the only one here that experienced such a thing.
