Does upgrading to Freelancer Plus increase the visibility of your profile when clients are searching for freelancers?


Absolutely not, and it would be wrong on so many (any and all) levels if it did.


...so that will be a next great  idea to implement on UW...just wait...

Or maybe Upwork is planning eventually to make the ads work more like Google Ads, and freelancers will pay specifically for opportunities to appear when clients search for particular skills or key words! That would seem to follow the logic of Upwork's newfound zeal for monetising each of its services.

So freelancers will pay to appear first? Since we are millions they will need to give the first place to the one who pays the most, there is only one first place, or there are only 1 first page. If they took that way I would believe Upwork is definitely falling of the cliff. So we are on the verge of seeing a new career here? SEO/SEM inside Upwork. Cat LOL

The freelancer Plus plan brings no benefits at all and I strongly encourage people to not buy it. You get more value by buying connects directly and the other perks that it offers are pretty much useless.

There was a post back in April when they were testing the idea of some freelancers being designated "sponsored" and the mod said: 

 

"To clarify, this test is NOT about highlighting proposals but about highlighting profiles in search. With this test the first three freelancers with a Freelancer Plus membership who appear in search results are highlighted as 'Sponsored.'"

 

So it sounds like Plus members WILL have an advantage over us Basic plebs, if this is being rolled out now (assuming that it does end up being an advantage).

Neat. Finally all those years paying for premium and the time has come for me to be king of search.
