LinkedIn Tops 70 Million Users

So I was on LinkedIn yesterday checking out my network stats, and whoa!  70 Million Users!  Of course I checked my RSS feed and had already written a story on it.  So check it out - there's stuff you need to know.

But more importantly,  what does this mean to you as a professional and business owner?

It means that, now more than ever, it is crucial for you to optimize your LinkedIn profile so that you can be found by the people who want to hire you!  Just like the best (but un-optimized) webpage in the world, if you don't use your keywords in your personal profile and company description, you won't get found.  That could be costing you thousands in revenue (trust me - I know - but that's a story for another time.)

Check out my LinkedIn Tips above to find out how you can better optimize your profile.   And if you have any tips or suggestions, I'm all ears!!!  Please comment below - I'd love to hear from you.
