LinkedIn Adds Profile Ranking Feature

LinkedIn introduced a new feature of its Who’s Viewed Your Profile page showing you “how you rank” compared to others in your network. It’s almost like LinkedIn’s own little Klout score.

Unsurprisingly, the Who’s Viewed Your Profile feature is one of the most popular parts of LinkedIn, according to the company. This should add another layer of obsession to the mix.

“Take a look at the top profiles in your network to gain inspiration for changes you can make to your own profile, or content you can share to increase views to your profile and drive opportunities for advancement,” says LinkedIn’s Dmitry Shevelenko. Or, take a look at the suggestions LinkedIn offers on the right-hand side of the page for ways you can begin increasing views to your profile immediately.”

“Professionals come to your LinkedIn profile from all over the web, but rich data insights such as the keywords that led people to your profile, can help you determine how to effectively position yourself to attract new business and make valuable new connections,” he says. “You can now also use the “How You Rank” tab to better understand who in your network can help increase visibility for your business.”

The How You Rank feature will be coming to mobile soon.
