#1 Setting on LinkedIn to make sure your LinkedIn profile is found by Google

I have been teaching a workshop called “The Art and Science of Using LinkedIn” to both job seekers and small business owners.  What I have found is 20-30% of my students have virtually nothing in their public profile.

You have to tell LinkedIn what sections of your LinkedIn profile to expose to the various search engines.

Watch the video below how to check your LinkedIn profile. Switch to full screen to get the full effect.

Please run a Google search on your name and see if your LinkedIn profile comes up first.  Did you have all of the boxes checked?
