LinkedIn SEO – It’s real and it works

LinkedIn SEO – it’s the web magic that can get you found on LinkedIn.

The LinkedIn search engine is very powerful. LinkedIn may not tell us how the search algorithms work, but if you experiment with it a little bit you can figure out the eleven sections of LinkedIn that the search engine looks in. Try it.
