Big thank you to the entire Upwork team for building this feature! I'm sure you're already hard at work on a number of great enhancements but I wanted to share my initial feedback for whatever it's worth...
Thanks again and keep up the great work!!
I have few questions:
1) How would I know If my project is part of an early acess program and I can enjoy its perk?
2) How to see on which page or rank is my project displayed?
3) What makes the project ramps up the search results?
Hi Abdul Samad,
You can create a project and submit it for review. Please allow up to five business days for your project to be reviewed. The projects will be visible in Upwork Project Catalog, a new marketplace for clients. Our traditional talent marketplace will operate as usual. Project Catalog will add another way for you to use Upwork. Our goal is always to bring more clients and opportunities to Upwork and clients have told us at times they would prefer to purchase pre-built projects rather than search for a freelancer, invite, interview, etc. This additional option simply gives freelancers a new way to sell their skills and clients a new way to get help with their projects.

I apologize for the delay in following up on your question.
Regarding your first question about Early Access, I can confirm you do have access to the Catalog Projects feature.
To your second question, project ranking depends on the search query, talent quality, and offering competitiveness. We are actively tuning and updating our ranking strategy to ensure fairness and robustness.
