Rewrite your profile. Probably need to examine your proposals too. 

 

"Last seen"  is not an accurate metric. I am  a client, and it always says I haven't looked at my job  post for days when I absolutely have looked at it every day and reviewed proposals every day. I don't give that number any credence since I know it's not accurate. 

 

Connects only get returned if the client breaks TOS. They don't get returned if they hired someone else. You paid to apply to the job not to get the job.   Read some of the advice on the forum about writing better profiles and proposals. I think it will help you.

They also get returned, if the client cancels the job completely without hiring. (But not if they simply disappear and leave the job open to be archived eventually by Upwork)

Thanks for clarifying that. I keep forgetting that's also a thing.  I just never expect them to get returned anyhow.
