3 Free Ways to Verify Your LinkedIn Profile Attracts Views
1. LinkedIn Profile Views
This is the end goal, guys!
If not many LinkedIn profile views,
you've got settings, content and 🅿🅾🅿!™ problems!
2. LinkedIn Profile Searches
Views often happen AFTER your recruiters and leads
SEARCH for keyword solutions to their needs.
If not many searches, LinkedIn profile views are lower.
3. Getting to Google
Recruiters and leads search on Google.
With the wrong LinkedIn settings, you're invisible on Google.
But do settings right and LinkedIn profile views also get to Google!
- 1Open a Chrome Incognito browser tab: Ctrl-Shift-N (Windows) or Command-Shift-N (macOS). This ensures it's an unbiased search.
- 2Type your full name and add " LinkedIn" - no quotes. For example: Jared Wiese LinkedIn
- 3Are you at the top of results? If NOT, you have a settings problem on LinkedIn. (Step 1.) That is also limiting your visibility, leverage and impact on LinkedIn and Google searches. (Step 2.)
About the author
I know these 3 steps are the most important things to check for a reason. LinkedIn hired me in 2017 to review LinkedIn profiles.
They gave me 12 sections to check but didn't say what to look for. I learned the order mattered. For example, your picture is #1. #12 is the projects section.
LinkedIn also has the ALL-STAR progress checker. But that is really only a bare minimum completion check of 7 sections. And I'm getting better leads with one of them not complete!
So experience matters. Are you getting the results you want on LinkedIn?
