Your profile

For you to access this site, you need to create a profile. This includes your personal and professional details. You also need to upload your picture.  A good profile is one that is concise and specific about the profile owner and his skills.  The more complete your profile, the more traffic you will generate. People will always visit your page and click on your links.

Your Connections

LinkedIn is about establishing connections with people. The more connections you have then the more accessible your blog is. The best ways to find connections is joining groups, sending recommendations to people and updating your profile. You need to connect with many people so that you can have many clicks leading to your blog.

Customize your links

The best thing about LinkedIn is the fact that it is target specific. People will only connect with you if you are offering information that they need. For this reason, you want to make sure you have customized links to drive more traffic. Customization creates a compelling link that allows people to find exactly what they are looking for.


As soon as you blog about a product or service, people who are interested with your topic will definitely find you. Some will begin to answer questions. When this happens, it is important to answer these questions. The frequent the answers, the more connections you will create. You will begin to see people often clicking on your link. Your answers will receive ratings making you an expert in the field. Once people begin to trust your opinions and expertise, you will be able to generate traffic to your blog.

Always make sure that you always update your LinkedIn status. This is because it is what your connections see as soon as your profile pops up. You will also see the status updates of your connections. For you to generate traffic with your connections’ status, you need to provide back links and a compelling call for your audience to act on the information.

Always make sure that you connect with groups of the same interests as your own blog. These groups have many connections that would like to connect with others. For your LinkedIn profile to be a success, it is important for you to invest your time and energy into ensuring that your profile is active and engages the audience. For you to know whether your profile is indeed compelling and engaging, you can type your name on a search engine and see the position of your LinkedIn profile.
