We Bought 90,000 Backlinks From Fiverr, Here Was The Result

Note: This article was published a few days after the delivery of this service. We will update this article in one month if there are any changes in ranking, domain strength, or backlink count.

When browsing through Fiverr, it's almost impossible not to stumble across the many SEO services that sellers on the platform have to offer. All of them have attractive titles, promising you an increase in Search engine ranking placement , tons of links, and more.

We decided to run a quick experiment using an old domain with around 10,000 words of content on it. This domain focused on the Financial industry and was left over from testing something (non SEO) out a couple of months ago.

From Fiverr, we purchased 90,000 backlinks all pointed towards the same domain , and wanted to see what would happen.

What these services offer

These services offer large quantities of backlinks which can be pointed to your website. Many people mistakenly believe that the more backlinks that a website has, the higher Google will rank it. This may have been true in 2008, but in 2020, this method doesn't work. These type of links, which come from blog comments, message boards, and more, are designated Web 2.0. Google no longer uses these links (unofficially) when it comes to ranking websites.

Instead, they only look at great backlinks from authority websites, and the quality of your content.

Nevertheless, Fiverr is chock full of offerings promising crazy amounts of backlinks. We decided to purchase 90,000 backlinks from a Fiverr seller, point them all towards a domain, and see what the outcome was.

Before running our test, we noted the domain rating with the free backlink checker offered by Ahrefs, which was a solid 1/100. We also checked to see how many backlinks already pointed to the website, so we were able to compare and contrast. Around 80 backlinks from 6 referring domains.

Purchasing 90,000 backlinks from Fiverr

The process of purchasing backlinks on Fiverr is fairly easy. First, we headed to the platform and searched for backlinks. We found a service that offered 90,000 backlinks for $10 with hundreds of five-star reviews. The delivery time was three days.

Here’s an example of one of those offerings:

We purchased the service, gave the seller a list of keywords and our domain, and let him do his thing.

While not necessarily advertised, all of these links are automatically created by spamming blog posts using a tool called ScrapeBox. Again, this method used to work when it came to ranking websites on Google. However, it's now outdated by over 10 years, and in many cases leads Google to actually penalize your website for unwanted link building schemes.

After three days, we received a list of all of the links that were created which pointed to our domain. We then checked on Ahrefs and saw that we had 12,000 new backlinks.

Here are some of the domains that were linked to:

The Outcome

There's a big difference between 90,000 links and 12,000 links. We checked almost immediately after the links were delivered, so there may just be a delay in Google/Ahrefs Identifying them. However, this may just not be the case, meaning the seller scammed us.

Only around 5% of the links were do follow, and the rest were nofollow. There is absolutely no change in the domain rating, which stood at about 1 for the duration of our testing.

The Quality Of Fiverr Backlinks

When it comes to SEO today, you really need to strive for quality over quantity. 5 super high quality backlinks are much better than 90,000 spam backlinks.

First off, most of them were nofollow links which passed no value from the referring domain. In fact, because our dofollow ratio is so terrible (coming in at around 3 to 5%), Google will probably end up penalizing our website and prioritizing others.

When we got into the actual links that displayed on the Ahrefs tool, you could see that, while the anchor and backlink keywords were correct, the referring domains had absolutely no relation to our niche of finance. Furthermore, most of them were extremely long domains from websites with a poor domain ranking. This in itself isn't very good for your website.

However, we did notice that some extremely high DR domains were interspersed throughout the report. Some of them were .edu/.gov backlinks.

When you click on the link to the referring domain, every single one is the same story. All of them have comment sections that don't block bots, meaning that there are thousands of spam comments linking back to all types of websites.

This is because the automated platform that creates these links (ScrapeBox) uses the same websites for all customers on Fiverr.

Here is an example domain That is rated fairly high in Ahrefs. The domain rating is 76 while the page rating is 33. However, it's an Indian website which has no relation to our financial niche.

If you take a look at the actual page, the website is poorly designed, and extremely saturated with spam links to all different types of sites.

Here are some screenshots of the comments sections from some of the referring pages included in our backlink purchase.

As you can see, these websites/comments offer absolutely no value to anybody, meaning that Google probably doesn't care if your site is getting a link from them. Furthermore, because you suddenly have 90,000 extra backlinks on your domain, Google will probably end up penalizing the websites as this is against their Webmaster policies.

TLDR: Buying backlinks from from Fiverr is a waste of money.


To conclude our experiment of purchasing 90,000 backlinks on Fiverr:

  • we didn't get the amount of links that we paid for
  • all of the links were from very bad websites which were saturated with thousands of automated backlinks
  • there were some extremely high DR backlinks from .gov/edu sites, but they passed no value over to our domain
  • The majority of these links were nofollow

The outcome of purchasing backlinks from Fiverr is probably this: Instead of ranking your site higher (which is the reason that you would purchase a package like this) Google will identify that you purchased a ton of spam links, and end up penalizing your website. What this means is that the service that is advertising website ranking increases will actually negatively impact your website (big time).

Unfortunately, most of these services have extremely high rankings and are attractive to people unfamiliar with SEO. The reason that these sellers have high rankings is because they do offer quality customer support and in most cases provide the number of links that they say they will.

If you read through the reviews, you'll see a lot of people saying that all of the links were delivered. You won't see any information on if the websites actually ranked higher because of the service.

thank you so much, very cheap compared to the number of links he provides. Good Job.Did what he said, now the waiting game for seeing the number of new backlinks begins!
Excellent Service and delivered as advertised. Would buy again!Quick completion and produced 15,000 extra backlinks for free. Great work - thanks!
Seller was prompt and efficient. Although; it may take a while for me to see the results of his work, I will be using his services again. Thanks seller.I hoping the backlinks do draw traffic to my site. The seller was good except he didn't deliver on time, not a big deal because the backlink could take up to a month per the seller...otherwise I will send update when I start making some money.

Thanks for the article. I bought the same service on Fiverr a few years back and it was a joke. Only a handful of backlinks were delivered and most were nofollow. Do it the hard way for best results.

Hey, there this article can be super helpful for beginners thanks a lot!

I also bought a dozen of backlinks from Fiverr and just like you, it did not end well, most of the links I got were from spammy sites and forum links. Although I did get some links from even DA 80 sites, unfortunately, their language was different and this can cause a lot of trouble and can signal Google of some suspicious activity.
So buying backlinks, in general, isn't worth it just focus on more content:)

Onne good backlink is more worth than 10000 of those crap links. I wonder how people can offer such a service when it will not have any impact. But I think making easy money is more important for them. I can only recommend not to buy any OffPage services on this platform.

Fiverr are the biggest scammers in the digital marketing industry.
They promote with full knowledge that the services provide no value and will actually harm a website. Yet they promote the scammer to make money for themselves.

Stay away from Fiverr
