In addition to being a great website for networking and reputation management, LinkedIn can also serve as a valuable SEO asset. Your profile allows 3 links to your websites. Use them. A few tips for making your profile rank better within LinkedIn, and most likely with external search engines, too.
- Complete your profile to 100%
- Join some groups
- Build a large contact list
- Recommend your contacts
- Ask your friends to recommend you
- When commenting on blogs, make your LinkedIn profile sometimes the URL for your comment
This is also a great way to create a very credible page that will rank well for your name, including great positive recommendations in your favor. See more about this in my post on SEO tactics for reputation management.
