This is my first post on the forum so please bear with any mistakes that I might make.
I have been getting very few profile views for the past few months, I asked one of my clients to check out if there were any discrepancies and he was kind enough to help me out. He told me that when I had posted my job application it was under the hidden category.
I have pretty healthy reviews from my clients and have a 4.7 overall rating.
Can you guys help me understand the problem here?
The hidden category has been the subject of discussion in some other threads. I must say a lot of folks don't even know it exists.
While it may have it's merit , it also has it demerits .
I am sure that there are some clients who have found very good freelancers under the hidden category.
Unfortunately some clients will not bother with this tab or see it as a negative for proposal / lancers grouped under it.
If ( and when) it gets taken away , I am looking forward to seeing it's impact i,e if quality lancers will land more gigs.
I recently posted a job and the best person was hidden. I always check that folder and I think many other clients do.
The reason the freelancer was hidden was due to their own description of their work and the skills they had chosen. I think once people learn how to do these things properly the hidden folder will no longer be necessary.
