It could be due to the fact that you've not had that many jobs here at Odesk and your overall feedback is a 4.46 for the past 6 months. It could also be that you're applying to jobs where SEO and other optimization isn't the primary project goal. SEO is really falling off the bandwagon--becoming insignificant under new marketing techniques and strategies to date. I'm just guessing here, but viewing your profile, your tests look good, your profile summary statement could use a little work (grammatically, word function and flow, etc) but overall it is OK. However, I'm thinking that because you're fairly new here, and the feedback has dropped significantly for only 12 jobs, this might be impacting you negatively. This might be the reason why you're hidden--note, I'm not saying it is. Still, as a client here, too, (myself) I don't think I'd hire you based on that low feedback score being weighted on just 12 jobs. That is very little work experience. I'd be somewhat apprehensive, I'm sorry to say. Smiley Sad Try to get that pulled back up if you can. I understand some clients do rate with a 4.0 no matter what (I know) and some are harder with that feedback in general. You can still make improvements though.

Hi Sikander Nawaz, You are right but I'd like to inform you that, I am getting jobs from my old clients not from the oDesk bid. I have requested to oDesk support 50 times but they said ,You need to get more jobs and high feedback to solve this situation, when I asked ,How can i get the more jobs as My all bids are goes to hide than they said keep working Smiley Happy Sorry for that, But I don't think it'll solved in future as they said ,They have no any gurantee for that.. If any one solved this situation than please let me know. Thanks

Hi Misty,

 

I faced problem of auto-hidden in odesk from last 1 month. I have apply 100 jobs & dn't get a single response from clients. I am worried because  this is only my earning & my carrier.

Please check my odesk profile &  give me a suggestion for that.

I am curious, How will you know if your application is hidden on employers view? Been reading about this here in the forums and I cant seem to figure out how this works.

You won't know if your applications are hidden

You won't know, Ryan and this is part of the reason why some freelancers are displeased about this system... me included! I've hardly received responses to my applications and I think that this system has something to do with it. I mean, you can't blame everything on this system, but I have an idea of how clients would usually respond.

Interesting. So oDesk decides wether your application will be shown or not to the employer. Isnt this a complete breach of freedom for the freelancers?
