LinkedIn Secret: LinkedIn Helps To Increase the Ranking of Your Website In Search Engines

Time for another “LinkedIn Secret”: LinkedIn helps to increase the ranking of your websites in search engines.

Without making it too technical: websites get better rankings if they get links from popular websites. So what you need to do in your Profile is list one, two or three of your websites.

To increase the chances for a high ranking put the words you want to be found with, in the name of the description. How to do this? Choose “Other” and then give the website the name you want it to have. This doesn’t have to be the official name of the website. So you can use keywords you want to be found with. Always make sure that it is still readable.

Apply this same tactic on all the other online business and social networks you are a member of.

To your success !
