Lack of Invitations

I'm confused why client invitations so rare on some period and so abundant on others. When I get invitations it's bunch of them all together, sometimes can't even focus on all. But when it is nothing well NOTHING AT ALL. I feel it like someone (UpWork) is controlling this. actually this is happening to me alone or it's common?

Hi Fazil,

Yeah - that's been happening to me too for ages now. And the periods without invites seems to be getting longer.


And yes I get the feeling that Upwork is controlling their frequency somehow - I think they should not interfere.

When I signed up in February, I was inundated with invitations, to the point where they were getting annoying.


Now, after half a dozen jobs and getting a Top Rated badge, I get one per week (if lucky). There's definitely a weird algorithm at play that decides who gets to be seen/recommended to the client posting the job.
