Not showing in searches at all! Not by name and not by skills. What to do?

Hi! I am a top rated freelancer on the platform for a while and a few days ago I just stopped receiving invitations.

I did some changes to my description a while ago but I don't know if that is the reason. I don't appear even if I search my name. The profile is set to public. 

 

Is there something I can do?

I searched (from my client account) with filters (location and money earned and hourly rate) and found you in 3rd place

One suggestion: You want to be more reactive to invites.

Now, most clients can only invite 3 freelancers unless they pay, it is rude to not respond or to respond days after the event.

 

I am also pretty sure (but do not 100% know this for a fact) that having a poor responsiveness score will not help your search placing. Why would Upwork promote a freelancer for invites who can't be bothered to respond?

I am working on that, I had some problems a while ago when I was a bit unresponsive. But since then I've been answering the invites within a day, it just didn't update yet. I don't know how long that takes. 

Anyways, thank you so much!
