I guess the question should be directed towards Scott z regarding algorithms. is this new algorithm with all of its many factors involved in ranking is it able to pinpoint the deficiencies that somebody would have in their profile or whatever the case may be to get them ranking lower? Because I noticed you gave every ,not everybody but a lot of people on that last discussion your generic answer . I have found out with the reviews algorithm that there are many factors involved in the order that your reviews are shown very vague of course and nobody is able to pinpoint or tell me exactly why they're arranged the way they are they keep telling me the same thing of all the factors that are involved but they can't pinpoint one and they say that the reviews cannot be moved which I think is absolutely unbelievable.. so yes it would be nice if we have promote on we have a decent travel range good prices top Pro great reviews I haven't had a job in over a month I did just turn promote on because I was unaware of the fact that we can only good jobs to the jobs tab now unless we're on promote I did not know that either slipped by me or I don't know I haven't got a new lead in the league column since this thing started. And that I was told yesterday by Thumbtack rep that if I'm not using promote that I can advertise myself on another form a media like Twitter or Facebook and then I was that will why would I need Thumbtack then they're not sending me leads they're sending me the names of people that have had 5 or 6 or 10 Pros already bid on the job we've already been hired a pro I've been charged for that as well. well I'm just trying to figure out these algorithms because I did everything that I was told responding to my reviews and asking for more reviews and I did everything that I was told in my reviews have not moved in order at all so I like to understand this new one so I can get a job and not lose my business thanks

But the thing is with promote when you have it on you can narrow your jobs down to a couple specific things and you can have a $100 budget shot in a couple hours with all the leads that I'll come that you know aren't even close to what you specify or they are you just get bombarded with a bunch of leads you have to pay for?
