UPDATE for 2016

Linkedin has changed how they display user profiles in Linkedin People Search but what still remains is what makes a successful profile. Testing profiles that have used the tips suggested in this course still rank well above others who have not implemented what is contained in this course. It does appear that Linkedin is now using more than just the content of your profile to determine ranking. To maximize success, I suggest using the tips I provide in this course in combination with being an active contributor to the Linkedin community.

Section 1: Linkedin Profile SEO

Why is it important to rank well in Linkedin People Search? When someone is doing a search for a person in a specific industry, they do not search by the unknown person's name, they search by the title, job title or industry that they are interested in to see a list of people who show up. Linkedin People Search is a powerful tool that allows people to find you. Ranking well under People Search is important.


Let's take a look at Linkedin People Search and how it is used to find people in specific industries or companies.


The most importnant detail in ranking is the content in your profile. In this video we go over editing your profile for maximum effectiveness.


Discovering how people are searching for people in your industry or line of work is important. In this video, I discuss different ways you can research this so that you can choose the best keywords for your profile's content.


Keeping conversations current is time consuming. Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin... How do you have a presence on all of the social networks with out it consuming your day?


Of course simply ranking well alone in Linkedin is not going to drive tons of new business to your inbox, but it will position you for success with Linkedin.
