Here are 4 Tips to Get Your LinkedIn Profile in Google Search Results

2020-08-02 22:39

1. Complete your profile

The number one way to rank in more search results is to provide more information with a complete profile. LinkedIn does a great job prompting users to fill in each section with details. Ensure your profile strength says “All-Star.”

2. Customise Your Public Profile URL

Go to your LinkedIn profile view and at the bottom of your profile header, you’ll see your current URL for LinkedIn. Click on the little wheel to edit it. From there a new window will open your public profile, the version other LinkedIn users see when they are not connected with you yet.

You’ll then be presented with options to edit your actual URL. If available, use your first and last name (not your company name). This is how people search for you. If your name is not available it means that someone else has already claimed it. Try to add a hyphen (-) in between your first and last name or maybe a middle name.

3. Make your profile public !

Even Google likes LinkedIn profiles. If you do a search for someone’s name, and they have a good presence on LinkedIn, chances are that the link to their profile shows up in the top 10 search results. And make sure they had their public profile visibility completely not turned off.
  • Edit Profile mode
  • Click on ‘Edit’ next to the public profile url in the top section of you profile
  • On the right hand side make sure that ‘Make my profile visible’ is selected

4. Display your full last name

In order to have a public profile you need to be willing to display your full first and last name. You can double check that this is the case in your basic information.

    Hmm, I see it. Could I suggest:

    Double-check content blockers: Firefox's Content Blocking feature and extensions that counter ads and tracking may break websites that weren't built to operate normally without the blocked components.

    (A) Tracking Protection

    Do you see a shield icon toward the left end of the address bar, near the lock icon? More info on managing the Tracking Protection feature in this article: What happened to Tracking Protection?.

    (B) Privacy-related Extensions

    Extensions such as Adblock Plus, Blur, Disconnect, Ghostery, NoScript, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin or uMatrix should provide toolbar buttons to manage blocked content in a page. There may or may not be a number on the icon indicating the number of blocked items; you may need to click the button to see what's going on and test whether you need to make an exception for this site.
