How to show up higher in your LinkedIn network

Want to show up higher on LinkedIn as a top job candidate or service/product provider? You can! LinkedIn lets you see your number of profile views. The more profile views that you receive; the more likely you will be found by prospects. Your score changes weekly and the good news is that you can improve your score immediately and see your progress every week.

Here’s how: From your LinkedIn home page, click "Who viewed your profile".

The next page reveals a chart showing how many page views that you have received lately. The chart used to show what you did to receive more page views. It no longer shows you what you did to get more views, but there are few things that you can do to get more views. Read on to learn how.

Click on the individual weeks in the chart to see what you did each week to increase your page views.

LinkedIn used to show you what to do to get more page views. Now you just have to know what to do. 

To secure a higher ranking in your network:

  • Endorse your connections through endorsement boxes that pop up, or by going to a person's profile, scrolling to their Skills section and clicking the blue + sign next to each skill. 
  • Share article links, questions, and inspirational quotes through the “Share an update box” on your home page and share full length posts on LinkedIn Pulse by clicking “Write an article” on your home page.
  • Share posts on up to 50 LinkedIn groups. For best results, mostly share other people's posts relevant to the group’s topic so group members won't complain that you are being self serving.
  • Comment on, share and like posts by other people on your home page, in groups and in response to LinkedIn Pulse articles. 
  • Add more connections by inviting people to connect and by accepting other people's invitations to connect. Encourage people to invite you to connect at the end of your Pulse posts and consider becoming a LinkedIn Open Networker (LION).

Use the knowledge!
Study the profiles and posts of people ranking higher than you to learn what they are doing right so that you can improve your own profile and presence. Use the knowledge that people visited your profile to establish a relationship with them. Invite them to connect from their profile, customizing your message to let them know why you want to connect. “NAME, Thanks for visiting my profile. How can I help you? Let’s connect and let’s set up a time to talk. Thanks, YOUR NAME.'

In conclusion
Be more active on LinkedIn! After all, LinkedIn is the world’s largest business network and the best place to attract employment and business leads. – Kathy
