How to improve the number of times my profile is viewed

Hi! As you can see in the image, I have a very high interview and hiring ratio, but my profile is rarely seen.

I have spent a lot of time maintaining a complete and attractive profile, using keywords from my industry, and reverse engineering the profiles of my main competitors. My JSS is 100%, so my question is, what else can I do to make my profile more frequently viewed?

I hope that there is something within my reach, since having a report of an impossible metric to improve does not seem to make much sense.

On the other hand, if other users want to share this metric, it would be very useful as well.

Hi Norma, 


I took a look at your profile, and for someone who just recently started on Upwork and you've had great success on Upwork. I've read stories of some independent talent that it took them more than six months to get a job as a freelancer. I'm very impressed with your Work History!

As for your profile, I would recommend that you beef up your portfolio by adding more project items in this section of your profile. This is your opportunity to impress potential clients with real-life examples of your skills and expertise so don't hesitate to add new items in this section of your profile especially when you have just recently finished a project.

You may also want to update your overview and talk more about how you can help your client solve their problem instead of just itemizing your skills. When a client search for freelancers, they only see the first two sentences of a freelancer's overview in their search results. Make sure that you're able to capture your potential client's attention by working on the first few lines of your overview. 

Check out these resources I have hand-picked here, but you may also check the guides the team has curated to help you become more successful on Upwork. 

I hope this helps! Good luck!

I can only speak for myself, not for the other more experienced freelancers, but I will do it anyway: experienced freelancers never look at these statistics. They are pretty meaningless and if you are trying to improve them, you are wasting your time. One that you could be watching is the "clients that would recommend you" number, that is the aggregated private feedback. It tells you how happy clients really are with your work, and it's the most important factor in JSS calculation. BUT: never ask clients what they rated you, or try to find out who rated you what. That would be unprofessional. 

One tipp, though: never end a contract yourself if you can avoid it. It's always better to ask the client to do it.

If you feel that client may be not 100% satisfied with your work and there is a risk for non perfect feedback, it is better to end the contract yourself, as there is a chance that client will not leave any feedback.

On the contrary, if you ask client to end the contract he will be forced to leave a feedback, which will possibly be non-perfect, so the this practice will eventually be against you in the long term

No, it will not, since you always should deliver 100%. In the rare case that a contract went south, you are right. But that should be the rare exception.
