I agree I like the old system better. I am paying for lead matches and they never answer back. 

Please reconsider and lower the cost of paying for leads. How do you determine the rank?

Yes i would like to know how the ranking works and where my service is ranked and does my service get quotes sent out before all other djs?

I would like to communcate with some of the clients that are looking at my quotes for questions and answers before they hire.  is that possible?

Hi Scott, I would love to understand the process of "Ranking" and Representation of a pro (me). I had over 420 views this past week with 1 lead. I was lucky to gain the customer (at a cost of $32.!!), but I was definitely getting more leads before change. I will wait to hear how this goes. Thank you

Too many tire kickers

Solved! Jump to solution

Most of my experience on here is with tire kickers. Any contractor out there can't really give an a curate quote by a description on the internet. Doesn't work for me.

How far back are you taking you statistics from each profile for search ranking? Do you take days from back when we signed up to determine our ranking?

Honestly, I didn't even know things had changed very much. I've stopped paying much attention to Thumbtack because the quality of leads just doesn't match up to other ways I get clients. I've stuck around, though, because it doesn't cost me anything to look at possible leads, and I only respond to those that seem thoroughly in line with what I have to offer.
My question about the ranking system is: how can a Pro see how they are showing up in rankings? I'd also like to see my profile from the customers' point of view.

@Mary85006  just go to www.thumbtack.com and search for your service in your area. Keep in mind, if you’re in a highly competitive area with lots of pros, you might not see your profile. If that happens to be the case be sure to check out Scotts answers about how you can improve your ranking.

I'm sure this question has already been asked, but how does ranking work? and how do I move up in the ranking?
