Need help. I can't increase the number of invites.

Welcome all.
For earlier, I thank everyone who expresses their opinion.

Since December last year, I have been actively engaged in my account.
1. I have completely revamped my portfolio, made it more attractive and cool in terms of design.
2. I made my description more attractive.
3. I have added a few profile specializations to be more interesting for my clients.
4. I added my works to the Project Catalog
5. I am online from 9 am to 10 pm local time
6. I reply to any messages within 15 minutes.
7. Every day I will now send 4-5 job requests.
8. In the last 90 days, I have submitted over 500 job requests.
9. For half a day of 90 days I received only 60 invites. This is approximately 1 invite every 2 days.
10. I am online 7 days a week, I take all the projects that come, I complete them on time, but in 4 months I was not able to increase the indicators and increase the number of invites

To compare, my friends at upwok who also do logos and branding get 5 invites every day.

I'm worried that in the search for freelancers through upwork, my profile is on the 26th position on the request for logo design.

My statics are next Top Rate 97%
At the same time, there are profiles that are not Top Rate and have 95% above my profile.

I follow all instructions and advice given by upwork
Absolutely everything!

I suspect my account is under upwork filters.
I cannot explain it otherwise!
Since I fulfill all the requirements in full.
And soon I will have to look for a job somewhere outside upwork.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
In fact, in this community, this is my last hope for help.

Hi Stanislav,


I checked your account and can confirm that everything is working as designed. Please keep in mind that freelancers in search results are shown on a rotating basis so that everyone has a fair chance to be discovered. 
I can also suggest to check out our resources Here and learn more about how to improve your profile and your proposals. Thank you.

Hi Goran, 

A little off-topic but I'll ask here. I started a new contract and the client opened 3 jobs at the same time. I completed two and submitted a payment request but the client asked me to resubmit as the files were switched (and remove the former payment request). 


I have submitted a new request but cannot find a way to cancel the former one. The client is also worried that the funds would be withdrawn from his account and it was a fixed price job. 


I have asked the client to request revision to pause the withdrawal at the moment. Can you please cancel the former payment requests?

Hi Zainab,


Please reach out to me via PM (click on my name) with the contract ID's or titles so that I can assist you further. Thank you.

Thanks Goran.

But the link where you send me, I was there and I know almost everything by heart.

I have never missed the online and offline seminars that were carried out in my city. I even wanted to give a salary twice and tell about my observations.

But I never got more than 1 invite in 2 days.
You understand that this is not enough.

Look where my profile is in the list by request logo Design and it will become clear that something is wrong with it.

In the list of home-based ones there are those who have earned $ 1000, there is no toprate and JS is 95%

How can this be?

Hi Stanislav,


As I've mentioned in my previous post, please keep in mind that freelancers in search results are shown on a rotating basis so that everyone has a fair chance to be discovered. I would also like to clarify that freelancer and client profiles have different searches and filters. Thank you.

I don’t think so.

I think that there are freelancers who are recommended by upwork more often and who are recommended less often.

As a consequence, these are the results.
I don't think that the system shows each freinaser the same number of times.
If this were the case, then everybody would have an approximately equal number of orders. Yes, someone would have more, and someone less.

But I will tell you once again the statistics that I have conducted.
My friend has 5 invites a day
I have 1 invite in 2 days

I checked the keys, both his and mine, I even checked the description of the work, I checked the number of bids, the time on the exchange from the moment of registration is the same.

I checked a very careful investigation and found out that there are specialists who move upwind himself, but push everyone else a little.

I have no pretensions, I just want to understand whether this is so or not.
