So, are you saying that it's possible that my test score for Adwords could be limiting my search ranking?
Yes, I'm saying that it's a possibility. Given that you want to show up in the expert category, upwork would want some evidense to back that up. A low test score matching the search term would demonstrate the opposite of what you want.
That's my concern here. The clients I have historically worked with will use very specific criteria to search for providers. And I'm not showing for the criteria drawn directly from my profile.
I found out a few days ago that if I search for my exact but put any sort of filter on experience, I don't show up in the search results, so yes, there's clearly an issue here.
Clients who post a job are being shown inappropriate results for people. That is the one we have been asking to have fixed.
Client searching for freelancers on their own can't even come close to appropriate results most of the time, often do to what THEY enter for a search criteria.
