I recieved email today about new program initiated by Upwork.

 

Text from this email:

"Beginning September 2nd we’ll reduce competition for active freelancers — like you — by removing inactive freelancer profiles from search results.
This was created to reward loyal freelancers who work and get paid through Upwork. In addition to increasing your visibility, this change will help protect clients and freelancers from off-platform work, which is against our Terms of Service."

 

I'm totally agree with this initiative! But I want to ask Upwork: is it possible to show in top of search results freelancers with more hours worked through Upwork? That would reward freelancers who work many hours/years and is really loyal to this platform! Currently often happens so that new freelancers is in top of search results and many experienced freelancers is in the middle of search results list. That is not stimulating to work for years through this platform! In this case it is easier to open new freelancer account and get in the top of search rather than work hard for many years, earn reputation, gain top rated, etc...

Hi Igor,

 

Please note that the order the freelancers are displayed in search results depends on the filters a client chooses to use, . Also, freelancers are regularly rotated in search to allow equal exposure.

Hi Igor,

 

Freelancers are rotated every two weeks but will show up in search results if specific filters are used by clients.

Hi Nauman,

 

I went ahead and updated your profile visibility back to public. Feel free to check this help article to learn more about how you can avoid having your profile automatically set to private.

 

Thank you.
