Hello everybody

It's interesting, how many active freelancers are here?

It seems to me that not millions.

I'm going to find how many profiles are indexed by search engines.

Simply interesting. Going to use the info for my tiny blog.

Will find the number now & compare in a few months.

Cheers

Why are you so obsessed with a platform you're not working on?

Completely pointless because that does not include profiles which are set to Upwork users only or private etc.

Hi Yury,

I do not know how objective this number is, but you can create a client account and see the next number:

Hi Stanislav

Thank you for your good info.

It prooves what I think. "no earnings yet" takes a huge part.

As I can see - there are a few 100k of active accounts (freelancers) only.

I'm gong to count the unlocked (not private) accounts and not interested to count the locked ones.

 

So, as we can see: 7,66% of 2164157 earned $100+

91,25% earned 0

Sure, that is in no way news.

Many, many freelancers who are busy with their existing clients or prefer to stay invisible to searches set their profile to private.

So whatever numbers you end up with will be more or less meaningless because it excludes a huge chunk of people, bot active (earning) and inactive.

That’s very interesting information, Stanislav.

 

So when clients set 90% & Up for their freelancer search, they are only going to see about 4 % of all freelancers who have any JSS rating at all in the field they are searching in.

 

That’s a much lower number than other posters on this board have estimated.

 

I’d be interested to know on what percent of all new projects clients choose a minimum JSS of 90% as one of their search criteria. Most of the jobs I see or am invited to include that minimum as a requirement.

Apples and oranges, Will. What's been discussed before is the prevalance of high ratings among active freelancers. More than half of freelancers who have earned $100 or more on Upwork have 90% JSS or above. That jumps to 69.9% among freelancers who have earned $1,000 across their Upwork careers.
