Why is this gig being denied?

Question

Hi! I am trying to set up a new gig, but it keeps being rejected for offering a prohibited service. I don't think I am though (but maybe?). I've tried three times, changing different keywords that I think might be triggering the auto-denial, but no luck.

I want to review people's portfolios on the website Shutterstock.

This is what I have written:

"Is your Shutterstock experience not living up to expectations?

Do your stock photography skills need a refresher?

Are you confused about how to utilize SEO?

I am here to help!

Success with Shutterstock can take a while and patience and skill are needed. To have great results with Shutterstock, you need photographs with commercial value, high quality, and the ability to stand out visually among other things.

With this gig, I will critique your public Shutterstock portfolio and provide tips and actionable advice on how to improve your stock photography and SEO rankings."
 

I also added a couple links at the end. Are links not allowed in the description?

I also cannot think of a way to ask for the link to their page without saying "link" or "url".

Any advice is appreciated!

I would guess that the gig is getting denied because you are offering to write reviews. Fiverr does not allow paid review-writing as a service.

Well Fiverr works with Getty Images, so I can assume mentioning their competitor might not be ok. So I can assume that site isn't something Fiverr allows mentioning..

Okay, interesting. Maybe I'll rewrite it for stock photography in general.

That's why I changed the wording to "critique." Ugh, it's not like I am posting a review on something...
