Hey guys, I'm currently exploring other ways to assist my SEO for my site (Home - Business Junkee). I've always steered away from Fiverr due to feedback that they do dodgy backlinl stuff that'll get you penalized from Google

However I've looked at a few high ranking gigs and they seem to be getting a lot of work, with good feedback. Do you think they're legit, or do those people not know they're about to be penalized for dodgy work?

Would love to hear from someone who has used it, and what your experience was? (both good or bad)

    Fiverr is good for Guest posting but if you buy some gig who offer 1000 blog comment or say 5000 backlinks in 2-3 days then it will harm to your website. You have to be smart to generate backlinks from fiverr.com It's not the website where you just buy 1-2 gig and your website will boom.

    Many clients of mine used fiverr seo services and they really upset with them and then they consult me and I recommend use manually link build rather than use fiverr.com

    I've tried it before and I've wasn't too impressed with my rankings
    taking a dive after the content was posted. I had to remove it and
    pretty much from now on I'm building manually.

    As far I know Fiver is for facebook likes and page promotion. If you need SEO services then go on oDesk.

    I agree with the above responders, the quality is not there, you pay for what you get. These days the search engines are looking for the type and quality of links and types of individuals that visit your site. My experience with fiverr in the past has been mediocre at best. I have had better luck using those dollars at the slot machines in Vegas

    Fiverr price is only $5, so your site get penalize if you use SEO services from them. Great services works like 25 web2.0 sites for just $5

    Calculate the time spending for building backlinks to your site.

    Make sure ask the person where he is building those links, once they built it's hard to remove them.

    Fiverr has bunch on cr*p gigs for SEO, I have never used them for SEO and never will. You should visit forums and find trusted sellers for any link building strategy.

    Fiverr is generally not a good place to go for SEO.
    Trial and error can totally destroy a sites rankings. It is hard to tell what kind of results you will get on Fiverr.

    Many times the gigs that are ranked high are getting ranked from buyers that do turn and burn sites where they try to rank quickly make a few bucks then the site gets Google Slapped and they start over.

    Thier have been many threads here on the Warrior Forum - similiar to this one (Fiverr & SEO)

    I wont write an essay on it but i will say only this..

    Mix SEO and Fiverr , then stand by for a slapping by google

    theres really not much more to say on this matter. Its your site, its your time, its your money. invest it wisely, that place is not on Fiverr!!

    I use Fiverr for some SEO stuff and find it to be pretty good... For the price you pay it's worth it. I do recommend checking reviews, and never hesitate to contact them and ask for samples before you buy. Find a few good providers and stick with them!

      It's good for social signals, guest posting and cheap backlinks (only when used as 3rd or 4th tier or to social profiles).

      So long as you don't do something silly like point 75,000 comments to your money site then it can be useful.

    It's advisable not to purchase gigs for SEO works, Since SEO is a long term process and we have to build the backlinks gradually, creating backlinks over night will spam your site also your site will be penalized by Google for abiding the rules.

    If you have the patience to look through the hundreds or thousands of gigs that offer such services, then it really is possible that you might find some people that could actually help. But they are too few, compared to the sea of people looking to make fast money by not offering anything of value in return. Unfortunately.

    I bought a gig on Fiverr who was offering 1200 blog comments just for $5. When he sent the report, there were 0 approved blog comments. He used the link building software called 'Scrapebox' and I don't even know what was he commenting about. DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMENDED!

    For $5 you will get $4 worth of SEO

    Just don't aim anything at your money sites.

    Fiverr is pretty good for SEO. I think you have to select SEO gigs for more profit. You have to read first review after that take any decision.

    You can use Fiverr for SEO. I have found that few Fiverr gigs are useless. So when you are going to buy a Fiverr gigs, you should take a look on review and feedback. It will give you a clear idea.

  • Do you really think doing a work for $5 is over price? I work on fiverr and I have seen my buyers want to get their work done at very cheap price and want high quality of work from sellers which is not possible. IF you need quality you need to spend more according to the work.

      If you buy an SEO package for any amount, including $0.01 and it does not do what you wanted to do, it's over priced.

      It does not matter that the seller provides you the 1,000 forum comments within 3 days, like he/she said. If it produced no SEO results for you, it's over-priced.

      I haven't gone to fiverr recently, and when I did, I did not check extensively, but the gigs I noticed can't possible increase anyone's ranking, yet they're sold under SEO.

      If they were sold as links for the sake of links, they would not be over-priced. But they're sold as SEO boosters.

    Hello!
    I do not recommend fiverr for SEO! It will harm your site ranking. For SEO service go on different freelance service site like ODESK(Up-Work) Freeleancer.com. You will get quality work from these freelancing sites. Do not waste your time on fiverr!

    If you want Negative SEO for your competitor than go with Fiver.
    But on serious note, if you want some social media promotion or want some article on specific niche than fiver is good.

    Fiverr is full of spammers(SEO related), what you expect in 5$,quality, nah.
    If you see mass, like 50k links, 1000 SB, they are ofcourse bots and can harm your website.
    There are few services that are legit.

    If you are looking to to do SEO through fiver ,i think its best you do it through guest posting. but don't buy don't buy those, "i'll give you 1000 links for 5$. They will obviously harm your site. If you really want to succeed at backlinking, it is best you do it manually.

    1000 links for $5 it's really great amounts of links but don't know what will be the link qualified. Confused!

    If I've missed some sarcasm, then ignore this post.

    Otherwise, color me skeptical.

    But if that is the case, then as a good business move, here's what you of course should be doing. Offer your SEO services at a low price. Something like, what the heck, "Guaranteed, I'll rank your site for $200!" That is an absurdly low amount. But you could just then get, say, 20 fiverr gigs for $100, rank the client's site, and double your money! Go for it!
