Whats the effect of changing gig title but URL remaining the same


I see many suggestions to change my gig title and see which keywords work best.

Whilst this seems to make sense, should I be creating a new gig each time I refine the title?

If I change the title of an existing gig, the URL remains the same as before. Does this have a negative effect on my gig if my URL and title differ?

What have other sellers experienced in this regard?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I’m also looking for this answer …
If I change title of GIG will it change it’s permalink ? If it will change then the backlinks I’d made with other sites will gone forever or have a redirect ?
Anyone here to answer this ?

Looking for answer

The permalink will not change, only the on-page details.

Not sure about the other stuff. Don’t sweat it, man. You’re on an online sweatshop. Oh.

Hay tim welcome to fiver… Many sellers on fiverr change their title time to time… but it has nothing with the url title … buyers only read your gig title that apear on your profile or search engine … so no need to worry about this…

yeah one more tip as you seen when your creat your gig you will see the link like that this is your gig exact url … so whenever you do seo on your gig use these url …

Hope You Will Find Your Answer :slight_smile: Best Of Luck

Thanks for the info. Much appreciated.

The only one option I think is to create a new gig

There is rarely a need for that unless the original title was really, really bad (& really screws up the permalink) or unless the gig has no reviews anyway. When I make a new gig now I first create it with nothing but good keywords in the title. After the first save I change the title to a normal one. I don’t know if it really works but I’ve read that can have a positive impact on the gig in search.

I have some gigs where the gig title and the URL don’t match and can’t see that it matters if they match or not one way or the other.


Do not start a new gig, ranking also depends on the age of a domain (URL)
Plus if you shared it on social sites that URL has built up social juice, plus if you marketed it already then it was a waste if people click on
