Using Keyword suggestions to boost your LinkedIn Summary

Premium members got this new feature on the 4th June 2014.

Keyword suggestions only appear whilst you are editing your summary. LinkedIn provides a table listing some keywords that are relevant to your industry & other keywords that you have used throughout your profile.

The keywords suggested are words that are searched for frequently within your industry. This feature is very useful to those who want to fill up their profiles to all-star or 100%(depending on how up to date the profile is), have writer’s block & need some inspiration or want to increase their profile ranks.

Tough Talk

Try to find key words that will be appropriate to your business & that you think your clients will search. Just using any keyword may get your ranking up but it will make your profile less genuine & lose the trust of people expecting that service. I know how easy it is to use all the keywords that get suggested but your profile has to make sense and be easy to read. Don’t abuse this feature as that will get you reported for spam.

Tool Tip

LinkedIn recommends at least 40 words in your summary to help boost the chances of being found in search results so make the most of this feature to gain powerful keywords to boost your profile ranking.
