LinkedIn Help Forum Giving Us New Answers

By: Viveka Monday March 25, 2013 comments Tags: LinkedIn, LinkedIn Expert, LinkedIn Tips, LinkedIn News, Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn Answers, LinkedIn help, New on LinkedIn, LinkedIn Tools, LinkedIn Help Center, help forum

Did you know LinkedIn had a help forum? I was chatting with my new LinkedIn friend Huub Ritzema  about LinkedIn's help feature, and he reminded me about their "new" Help forum. Just in case you haven't checked it out yet, it's worth the gander. If you click on "Help Center" at the very very bottom of your profile on the left-hand side, it will take you to  LinkedIn's Help Center.  (The Help Center is also featured in the new UI).  Once you're in the Help Center you can click on Help Forum. From this help forum, you can search questions that have already been asked and answered, or even start your own discussion. So this is nothing like LinkedIn Answers where you could ask questions about anything business related. But at least you can ask questions to the forum... Read More

LinkedIn Company Search Analytics Have Changed

By: Viveka Tuesday March 15, 2011 comments Tags: LinkedIn, LinkedIn Expert, LinkedIn Tips, Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn Answers, Linked Into Business

Company Search Analytics My inbox has been flooded by people asking me why their companies no longer turn up in the Company Search – even under their own name.  And the short answer is – I don’t know why.  I’ve spoken with other experts and none of us has the answer. When you query LinkedIn, the response goes something like this:  “Searches are usually done by geography and by (X number) of (industry specialists) in the US.  It makes SEO a huge business. My suggestion is to find and hire a consultant. Your account has no technical problems.” But the fact is I probably have one of the best SEO’d personal and company profiles (its what I do for a living) and I have disappeared.  So have many of the other experts in my field. I know its not... Read More

Advice to a New LinkedIn User (Lurking in Answers)

By: Viveka Monday July 5, 2010 comments Tags: LinkedIn Tips, LinkedIn Expert Tips, LinkedIn Answers

Advice to new users (sourced from LinkedIns Answers section) I was lurking around LinkedIn Answers today looking to be inspired for this blog post. The first question to pop up was, synchronistically, from my friend Michele Reynolds . She asked: What sage advice would you give someone just starting out on LinkedIn? All the advice shared was dot on. Some of the highlights were: Nick Acott who said: Be friendly, offer advice where you can regardless of how trivial you may think it is and try to put up some engaging questions/posts on discussion boards. And the occasional smiley face :) (You can find Nick at ) Sahar Adrade suggests (edited): Be courteous, Dont push your services/ products, ... Read More
