The Linked In desktop App rocks

To be fair, I am a massive fan of this application.

I downloaded it via the Microsoft Store and I cannot, and I repeat, I cannot say enough about it. It is absolutely brilliant. What you get is a fantastic piece of software that keeps LinkedIn in its own separate programme, meaning that you are not having to necessarily have it open as a tab on your Internet Explorer.

However, you can dip into it quickly and without much effort. It looks lovely, and it’s really worth keeping. It’s good for productivity, and Linked In likes you using it as well.

Mostly, it’s also good for your own rankings because LinkedIn likes people who like using their apps rather than on the web pages. So download it, and you will be blown away.

Get to the top of Linked In

Do you want to appear at the top of LinkedIn searches for your niche? Of course, you do.

This is one very quick hack that can get you to the top of the LinkedIn search. Copy your competitor who is top of the tree.

When you are doing your research, search what you want to know for – say a Java Recruitment in Manchester. Put Java Recruiter in LinkedIn and see who appears at the top. Study their profile carefully and then do the following things.

1. Ensure that your profile is 100% complete.

2. See how many times they mention the keywords that you find essential, e.g., Java.

3. Rewrite your profile keeping in mind that density of keywords, the location of keywords and number of keywords is essential to the rankings.

4. Share content related to this subject matter on a regular basis so, candidates in this field visit your profile. And say to Linked In, this person is Mr Or Mrs Java Manchester. In time you will slowly move up the rankings.

As with all things SEO and Search it take time. But this time well spent that will pay back later on.
