Hello everyone!

 

Can someone please help in knowing is there any change in the process of receiving the invitations? I have been receving regular invites but since last few weeks (about to be a month) I have not got a single invitation. Wondering what could be the possible reason?

 

Thank you

The search algorithm changes on a regular basis, plus clients have to pay now if they want to send out more than 3 invitations.

Thank you for your response Martina. Could you please elaborate in what sense the algorithm is changed so that I can improve more or work accodingly?

That is nothing you could influence. Upwork changes the order in which freelancers appear in search results so that everyone gets a chance to appear higher up. The way I see it, it does not matter if you are top rated, how much you have earned, or if you have any earnings at all.

Not true, Several factors determine how frequently you cycle to the (relative) top of the results and almost certainly also how long you stay up there.

JSS is one very strong factor, but you also tend to get more invites when you actively apply (it tells the algorithm that you are available for work) and so on.

Hi Petra, thank you for your message. Yes, I did replied within 24 hours for all my invitation and have accepted / declined few invitation based on requirements.

My JSS score seems fine still I am not receiving the invitation and its been a month now? Do you know any possible solution for this?

Don't rely on invites.

Do a search for freelancers in your category and check how many freelancers with a JSS in the 80s that search brings up.

Complete contracts with happy clients who loved working with you.

Hi Monika, I understand your concern as I have gone through the same issue. I belive since last few months upwork updated the algorithm for search criteria so that all freelancers get the chance to enjoy the invites. So based on the algorithm your profile will be shown on some week, now it totally depends on the client if they would like to send you the invites or not. Though you can check your Stats by going to "Find Work - My Stats" menu. This will help you to know your profile visits stastics and based on this you can update your profile description more relevant and improve.

 

JSS does contribute in this so give your best and deliver the work.

For the past three years I have been maintaining the top rated badge and highest JSS simultaneously in between 95% & 100%, and still have a current 100% job success score and top rated badge.

 

As a result, I'm just afraid to see "You replied to 1 of 1 invitations to apply in the past 90 days"
