 Probably a change in the upwork algorithm regarding the order of search results. Nothing to worry about. 

yes but its been almost a month since i got any proper invitations other than upwork talent specialist interviews...so i am wondering whats wrong

This might have something to do with it

with what?

 With you getting less invitations. Did you read it?

That said, I am pretty sure remembering you wanting Upwork to get rid of invitations altogether at some point...

 

I think you're just doing your usual "Rahul thinks the end is nigh" thing as usual 😉

 

hi,

i am not getting any interviews since last month except few upwork talent interviews and it is sad to see with such extensive profile and number of feedbacks/experience my profile is not see in search results...

 In your category there are literally thousands of top rated freelancers with years of history and search results are rotated so there will always be periods of time with more activity followed by period of less activity

but its been almost a month now..what type of alogrithrm is this?

 The search algorithm changes the order every few weeks. Would you be complaining about that in the time where your profile appears higher up?

no i wont but atleast my profile should be visible in first 4-5 pages...i never want i should show on top but with number of projects completed i feel disappointed that i cant see my profile in first 10 pages..

 Why? There are literally thousands with profiles that have similar metrics. And you will show on the first few pages, just not all the time. Number of jobs done is not really relevant.

You also eliminate yourself from many search results by hiding your earnings. Clients who search clicking one of the "earned at least" options will not see you ever.

 Right! I have often wondered about that specific "perk" when you have a paid membership, because when clients search for freelancers with at least some experience - excluding the ones without earnings - all freelancers using this perk are excluded. Makes no sense to me to ever use it! 

FYI i have hidden my earning just few hours back and right there are thousands who have similar metrics but what is point of putting inactive freelancers at top?

 Inactive freelancer that have their profiles set to private are not showing up in search results. Why don't you stop worrying and write some proposals?

 I suggest you stop looking for yourself in search results then, because there is simply nothing you can do about it except whine, and I think you filled your quota on that too.

firstly i have nothing to whine about i am getting projects regularly and why should i stop looking at search results...i am not going to get any invitations if i am not seen on first few pages..clients dont have time to go through 50 pages to look for freelancers and invite them..to me i guess first 3-4 pages matter
