  1. Website Traffic

Visitors are bloodline of any website or blog. If, you do not have them you cannot grow your online presence. E.g. We done the research invested our money in testing the services so, we can provide the better experience to our readers. But, if you guys do not read this or take any actions and support us we are nothing. The time we spent on researching and writing this comprehensive article will be wasted.

As, we are discussing this matter. We really want to thank our readers who support us and enjoy our posts and knowledge we provide. You Guys are our heartbeat and we would like to keep it beating forever.

Well, we got emotional there now the emotions are out of the way. You guys should know that generating traffic is not an easy task and certainly you are not going to get real visitors for $5. So, majority of the services who are selling website traffic are rip off and we would not recommend them at all.

But keep in mind that we are not blaming every web traffic service, but our tests showed that the traffic sent to us were bots and proxies visits.

Worth it?

In our eyes no, and we are not going to hire web traffic sellers on Fiverr unless they assure you that they are providing the 100 percent real traffic and reveal you A to Z procedure. There are no magic buttons which can generate traffic for you. But, if you are persistent maybe you will find someone who are selling real traffic.

Fun and Lifestyle

This is the major category and has sub categories like online lessons, Astrology reading, Spiritual healing, viral videos etc.

We are not going to lie, we not tested this category at all but upon research we came to know that astrology readers, spiritual healers and any other services are fake. And you are not going to find many good teachers as well in online lessons category.

As, we have not tested this category because upon looking we decided its best not to waste our time and money on these gigs. Also, the users feedback was not good, and our perspective is built on that.

Worth it?

See, it’s a common sense no Spiritual healer can take you out of your troubles. There are laughable titles like “I will make you financially successful” and selling the services for $15. Can you see the irony? How someone can make you successful if he/she himself depending upon your $15. Why not make themselves successful first? We are sorry if someone is getting hurt from this, but this is our opinion and we cannot recommend services like these to anyone.

Visit This Category

As, we are talking about whole category not just subcategory like spellcasters and healers. You can find good services as well in viral videos, health related guidance and for having fun you can hire pranksters as well.

Fiverr Pro

Fiverr Pro

We think this is the biggest introduction by Fiverr since it’s launch. In Fiverr Pro you are only going to find sellers which are truly verified. You can Hire Fiverr Pro gigs in any category. They are going to cost more than normal gigs, but they do worth it.

We only hired the Pro freelancer for Facebook Page growth and after the completion of services we had 2000-real likes on Facebook and many People also followed us on Twitter which proved that the service was real because we not paid for any other social media handle.

Worth it?

Yes, we only tested the Facebook page growth service which costed only $200 but it really boosted our Social media presence not only Facebook but on other Platforms as well including Twitter. So, yeah, we do recommend Fiverr Pro.
