LinkedIn for SEO

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.

    thanks,
    And now I have linkedin profile page. To manage my profile page, I link each of my profile page in other source. I hope this tactic will buzz my profile :D

    That’ a great idea. I just recently signed up for LinkedIn, but haven’t done anything with it yet. I think I’ll try to finish up my profile and see how well it can be used to help my existing stuff.

    I think LinkedIn is more to reputation optimization – especially you’re offering online services. Can’t imagine the impact on SEO as I see the link has little or nearly no link juice at all.

    LinkedIn is really even more of a popularity contest than Twitter. The vast majority of searches on the social media network for professionals are done through a filter of personal connections.
