Your post and heading don't make much sense.

Just click on the category heading and read them all.

Suggest you also take some time to read through the forum to see how it works.

I'm assuming you're referring to the Gig FAQ that's on each gig page. 

I don't really know if it affects your gig ranking (SEO optimization) at all. What it does affect is the number of stupid questions you might get in your inbox, because it allows you to answer your buyers before they spend your time asking. It's also nice to have something to fall back on. "Like it says in my FAQ, I don't offer X, because of Z". 

So you should be using it. But it should be used for real questions that you get often: think about which questions are the most common you get from new buyers. 

So, it doesn't really matter that much if has a role in your gig ranking; your goal with the entire gig should be to help your buyers solve a problem. The FAQ is part of that.

It just struck me that 99% of the questions on the forum are "How do I get on first page", "How do I get sales", "How do I rank gig". Almost never, "How do I provide the best service", "How do I beat my competitors on quality", "How do create raving fans"?  The focus is opposite from where it should be as it is coming from a "how do i get money" viewpoint instead of "how can I be great at what I do" perspective. Take care of the latter and the former will take care of itself.

Indeed. 

Whenever I write a guide of some sort, I focus on stuff that can help you improve the level of service you provide (except my ranking guide, because ranking is important, too!)

But it's frustrating to see. I read all those questions as "how do I win the lottery?", because that's what it's about: doing nothing while getting rich on a chance game. 

There's no strategy.

If I made a guide now called "Secret trick to be top ranking best seller TODAY!" everyone would click it, read it, and say "thank you best tip for new seller". 

If I write a guide about how to take time off to learn new things, 3 people will read it, and those are the ones who already know how to do it.

Excellent Mike!

So true, there's so much that leads to success, but the two that rank right up there are hard work and patience.
