Be sure to not use short URLs


Recommended Posts

Hopefully, we all know that Fiverr does not allow use of outside URLs in our profile/bios (other than Flickr and Youtube), per their ToS. I learned today that we are not supposed to be using short URLs either (URL shortened by a sites like bit-ly). I was unaware of this and had a shortened Youtube link in my bio (because the full link took up too many characters).

My Level One status was taken away this morning. I contacted customer service in a complete panic. Within 15 minutes, my status was restored.

Thanks to Fiverr for their superior customer service. I wanted to let everyone know this as a Public Service Announcement, so you can avoid a similar confusion. Do not use shortened websites on your profile/bio, even if they are Youtube or Flickr. 😉

Hi, which brings up a very good question. YouTube has their own URL shortener built-in as does fiverr. If a person was to post a YouTube short URL, would fiverr flags be smart enough to figure it out and give you an approval status anyway?

If so, that could solve your YouTube shortening problems.
