Hello

 

I am unable to view my name seperately in the Freelancer search results. However, my name appears under my Agency name "**Edited for Community Guidelines**".

 

I suppose, there should be an individual profile too when my name is searched.

Hi Purti,

The reasons why you appear under your agency is because you have listed your agency as the default team on your freelancers profile.
You will need to change this so that your own profile is showed in search results and not your agency. To do this go to Settings > My Teams > Click Change Default Team. Thank you.

Thanks Goran..!

 

However, even after making the necessary changes, the problem still persists.

Is there anything else I need to do from my end?

Hi Purti,

 

I just searched for your name with a client account and was able to locate your own profile:

Please keep in mind that clients have different search results when they are searching for freelancers.
If further help is needed let me know, thank you.

HI Purti,

 

I was going through your older post and I have the same problem. When I access my public profile through my profile link "https://www.upwork.com/o/profiles/users/~01cd73c3cbd531849b/", it is appearng. However, when I tryto search my name "Nida" in Freelancers search option, I don't see my profile appearing there.

 

Could you please tell me how did you manage to fix this?

Hi Nida,
 
Our search is based on several factors that are continuing to evolve. We cannot disclose exactly what makes up the rules for search order, and those rules are likely to change so any specific advice that we could give you would be short-lived. Search is no longer a mainly static search, meaning it stays the same all the time. A contractor's search position is likely to ebb-and-flow depending on marketplace activity across jobs and contractors.
 
Some good principles to remember for ranking well in search are as follows:
 
  • Do good work for clients and establish good long-term relationships on Upwork
  • Only apply to jobs to which you are qualified
  • Be accurate in showcasing your abilities & skills on your contractor profile
I just searched your name using a client account and was able to find your profile. 
 
Thank you.

Hi Nida

The reasons why you appear under your agency is because you have listed your agency as the default team on your freelancers profile.

Just change settings in your agency profile and don’t show agency as your default team
To do this go to Settings > My Teams > Click Change Default Team
Thenafter check your profile after 24 hours

This will surely resolve your problem
Hope this helps
Thank you!
