Fiverr has already reported millions of dollars in income since its initial launch. The website has become a hot spot for quick gigs that service providers can offer in order to make a fast four dollars. The way that the system works, when you start a gig through Fiverr and you get an order, Fiverr gets one dollar for every sale and you get four. In total, it costs the buyer five dollars to purchase your gig. As you can imagine, this has provided Fiverr with an endless income stream where they make a dollar off every transaction that is done on their website.

However, it has also become a real gold mine for the sellers on the website. There are literally millions of gigs being offered on the website and there is everything from videos, physical products, commercials, SEO gigs, link building gigs and a whole lot more. It’s very clear that SEO and link building have become popular gigs on the site and they are undoubtedly the biggest sellers.

So this presents the question, can you trust the sellers on Fiverr to do quality SEO and link building gigs for you? When they are only getting four dollars for the services that they provide, you have to imagine that a good majority of them are probably trying to cut corners and do it they can to save money and get the gig done quicker by some automated tools which may not be good in long run especially if these are low quality backlinks.

If it took the seller approximately 30 min. to complete one gig, this would equate to a measly eight dollar an hour wage. Therefore, you can conclude that the sellers are probably trying to complete these gigs as fast as possible. So what does this mean to your SEO campaign and the link building that you provide to your clients? Can you outsource to Fiverr reliably and save a lot of money on the services you provide?

I’ve been a member of Fiverr since many years and I’ve been ordering gigs experimentally to test out the different service providers that are on the website. I’ve used several different SEO gigs on Fiverr and 50% of these orders have been okay-okay type or average (Not so bad or not even good), rest 40% have been very poor and only 10% were good. Many of the link building gigs are very low quality, spammy and those are done by automated software. So you have to be very careful while choosing the gig and the seller.

Majority of the Backlinks Gigs and SEO gigs on Fiverr will have no impact or zero impact on your search rankings or even in worst cases, it may negatively affect your SEO. Freelancers available on Fiverr may use the Black Hat SEO techniques to give you backlinks through poorly spun articles using some automated link-building softwares and you may get penalty from Google and your ranking may be badly affected. So it’s advisable to earn backlinks in natural way through high quality content on your website and by branding activities rather than buying it in other ways.

For every order that I made I did a good amount of scouting, reading reviews and talking with the sellers through conversations to ensure that they were exactly what I was looking for. In the end, by taking more time to evaluate the sellers and doing thorough research into what they’re providing, I was able to save some money and time on my link building and SEO. You can try Fiverr to place order for SEO gigs, provided you have the domain knowledge and you do your own research carefully, thoroughly and select the right gig/seller after talking to them and evaluating their previous reports thoroughly in detail.

If you are new and you don’t have much idea or domain expertise about SEO or link building or whatever service you are looking for, then you need to do your homework thoroughly before blindly relying on Fiverr. It’s just a platform for sellers and buyers and it acts as a marketplace. So the main responsibility comes to you as a buyer to select the right seller or gig.

Beware about cheap and quick backlink building gigs through very poor article spinning and using automated softwares. As a first time buyer on Fiverr, don’t get trapped for quick backlinks otherwise you will be in big trouble in long run. Throughly research, evaluate previous reports/ work and decide to select the right seller / gig. Thank you for reading my post. If you have experience with Fiverr, do comment here.
