LinkedIn is a great way to generate free, organic, traffic to your website. Although LinkedIn has been great for job seekers during the most recent economic cycle, it is much more than that. Here you have 10 tips on how to get more traffic from linkedin.
1. Complete Your Profile:
Complete your profile 100%, add a great picture of yourself, and take the entire process very seriously.
2. Increase Your Connections:
The more connections you have, the more people will have access to your profile.
3. Customize Your Website Links:
However this is not a “call to action” and you are missing potential traffic because of it.
4. Answer Questions:
The more questions you answer, the better the chances are of that person asking the question to click on your blog to learn more about you.
5. Update Status:
LinkedIn also has a status update feature that is a lot like Twitter, only it gives you 148 characters to work with instead of 140.
6. Join Related Groups:
Whatever your blog is about, there is an audience of people on LinkedIn that share interest with.
7. Post Comments In Groups:
Some larger groups are receiving hundreds of new discussion topics every few days
8. Add RSS Feed to Groups:
Each group has a section that allows you to add a link to a website with the latest news you think is relevant to that group. It also allows you to add your own RSS feed or website link so it will automatically update the group every time you post a new article on your blog.
9. Create a Group:
This may be one of the most powerful things you can do on LinkedIn. I won’t go into all of the amazing details on how this has helped me, but I will tell you that owning a group drives a lot of traffic to your site.
10. Add the Blog Application to Your Profile:
This application posts the title and first paragraph for your most recent articles you have published on your LinkedIn profile.
