Me too Smiley Happy


Just checked -- me too! 0 views ... now come on, it can't be denied that something strange is going on that's affecting most (?) of us.

 

(Thanks, Valeria, for addressing my questions.)

I was going to say something about how you shouldn't look at those stats because so many things affect it -- and I have so many questions about views ... If you view your own profile logged out (or even logged in), does it count as a view? Do views include people who visit your profile through the forums? Does repeatedly visiting a profile within a short period of time (e.g., within 1, 5, 15 minutes) count as one view or separate views? etc.

 

But then I checked my stats, and like others I had a sharp decrease in early Feb, and it's still going down. Maybe something is going on?

Your profile was discovered 0 times last week. (-100% from the previous week)

 
Sigh again.

Aw, Mary ... I just went and looked at your profile. Let me know if that helps any. Smiley Tongue

Joe, bless your heart right back.  Given my field of endeavor, I never have a lot of views anyway and 99% of my invitations are suitable for lawyers, but not for paralegals.  Or they want either patent or immigration experience of which I have none.

Isabelle's questions deserve answers.  Just for FWIW.  Without that knowledge the stat is nebulous at best ...

I'm jelly at how you're killing it on LinkedIn. I did get 2 great leads from people who directly contacted me. One of them I'm kicking myself for losing because he contacted me at 8pm and I had already been drinking and waited until morning but it was too late. BOO. Oh well, such is life.

My profile views have dropped down to ZERO frequently in the past 6 months. And stayed like that for several days in a row. But then again, I've never had more than 18. Ever. 

 

My invites have also reached a new low: 12 in the past 90 days. When before I got 20-30/month. That combined with Upwork's recent shenanigans plus unrealistic client expectations equals good times indeed.

 

ETA: It's been 0 views now for the third day in a row.

Whether this has anything to do with the "graph", I couldn't possibly say, but I've had lots of invites nearly always for the wrong language pair (and so possibly, I get  more viewings). Upwork needs to work on the language  categories and the  attendant (necessary) language pairs.   

 

If a very well-known, very successful language platform can do it, then Upwork could possibly do it too; I have to say, though, that  this seems to be even more doubtful now than it was nearly ten years ago when I joined. In fact when Upwork was oDesk, languages and their pairings were more precise than they are now.
