I used more colorful language.
Then I found out there was a market for that and that's when the big bucks started rolling in!

What does a terrible profile have to do with initial views. Just testing this place out. Obviously I’ve had more viewers posting in this forum than proposal responses.

When you submit a bid, the client sees a partial preview of your profile. It's also likely that those commenting on your profile are assuming that your proposals are no better crafted.

Marshall:

What does "initial views" mean?

That doesn't mean anything.

 

You mentioned "only 2 profile views."

I can assure you that you do not know what this means.

I have been on Upwork for years and I constantly study how it works, and I don't know what that means.

 

If you are testing this place out by sending "25 proposals," then you should understand that every time you sent a proposal, IF a client clicked on your name or picture... then they saw your profile and realized you weren't a real Upwork freelancer. So they hired somebody else.

I had read that a copy of resume was sent with proposal. That’s a big difference!!!

One thing I just figured out. Is that views are not posted real time here. Seems it takes some time to gather the report

It is not a "hit counter" or "page view counter."

 

I think you're looking at something that most of us ignore.
