Why Do You Need to Dominate Your Profession on LinkedIn Search?

01 Sep

Because you still can! 

Unlike Google, Bing, and Yahoo, who have algorithms that weigh keyword density,
relevance, links, and SENIORITY (that’s right – if you have had dominance for a keyword for years, it’s darn hard for anyone tobump you from it) LinkedIn is still relatively virgin territory.

For business owners in the more popular competitive fields it is virtually impossible to beg, steal, or borrow a top page one ranking on Google. The smart larger firms started optimizing for SEO ages ago.  They hire rooms full of people in Bangalore or Shanghai to sit around for $2.20 a day and stuff keywords into content, Meta tags, Meta descriptions, photo titles,pop-ups, dropdowns, and URL’s.

LinkedIn is still doable, and it’s more than just keyword stuffing.  If you research the appropriate words to compete with, and integrate them into valuable content it does not detract from the integrity of your profile.  For several of my clients I have been able to get keywords like “real estate – 95131” ranked not just on the first page, but NUMBER ONE, on LinkedIn: The fastest growing search medium for professional services.  Check it out at

    This is a great idea for new freelancers or newly graduated professionals looking for jobs in trendy companies that rely on the internet to find the best talent. I know for sure that being creative can get you hired in an instant because it makes talent stand out. I hope you write an article about the guy who created an Amazon-type homepage for his own name, where his photo lead to him LinkedIn profile. He had around 1 million views in a week 🙂

    I don’t create many responses, however i did some searching
    and wound up here Why Do You Need to Dominate Your Profession on LinkedIn Search?
    | Bay Integrated Marketing. And I do have 2 questions for you if
    you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of the comments
    look like left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing
    on other online social sites, I’d like to keep
    up with everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your social pages like your twitter
    feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    One of them is to find out more about a specific
    potential customer and determine if that customer is a qualified lead.
    Page should be laid out in 2-3 columns, left side includes additional links
    to whitepapers, videos, case studies, etc that are specific to this
    page only. For acquiring a lead for the growth of business is important work for done and it
    is the required for any big or small business to stand in market.

    The surging prices of non-renewable sources, petroleum in particular and growing concern over
    pollution control is helping the growth of the market for renewable
    sources of energy. You can even check various other
    options like newspapers and magazines about the different types of heat pumps and their prices.

    Prior to starting with heat troubleshooting, turn off the power supply at the main circuit breaker.
