Get Ranked! How Do You Stack Up in LinkedIn’s New Ranking System?

Have you noticed LinkedIn's new Ranking feature? On your homepage just underneath “Who's Viewed Your Profile”, you can see your rank for profile views IF YOU HAVE LINKEDIN PREMIUM!!! 

When you click on the Rank link, it will show you how you compare with your connections and in the company(s) you currently work with.

It will show you what your percentage is – (top 1%, top 5%, top 50%) and as far as your connections go, it will also show you how you rank amongst your connections on LinkedIn.

On the right-hand side of the Ranking page, LinkedIn also shows you some other ways to get views.

If you don't want this ranking to show you can always turn it off in your privacy and setting section simply by clicking on “Turn on or off how you rank.”

Right now rankings are private – no one else can see them. But it's possible that in time they will show up on other member’s profiles – possibly amongst the “People also viewed” area.

So how do you rank? Check out your homepage today and let me know in comment below. And what do you think of this? Is it useful to you to see how you rank amongst others, or would you rather not know? Let me know your thoughts to that in comments below too!
