The new LinkedIn profile interface: this will be a multi-part blog for all the sections of LinkedIn.

We will start with the New Intro section, that is the area on your profile that includes your Profile picture your LinkedIn headline, where you live, industry, current experience, and summary section. I other words the area above the fold.

First is your profile picture. LinkedIn loves pictures. A picture on your profile will increase your profile views 21 times and will increase your connection requests by 9 times. It helps to complete your profile so you are an Allstar, as well.

But just having your profile picture on your profile doesn’t improve your SEO(search engine optimization). What you have to do to improve that is to name your picture. It can’t be photo IMG.0.jpeg. That wont help with SEO.

What to need to do is go to the while where you store you photos and rename it. I renamed mine “Bruce Bixler LinkedIn Profile Training and Development”. This way when people search for your name and want to find your LinkedIn profile on Google your profile picture will be one of the results for images on Google.

Your photo is the instant calling card people use to determine who you are and what interest they should have in your profile, profession, and content.

For best results use a head shot of yourself smiling and dressed in professional attire. Your photo will help other LinkedIn users start to trust you.

Many of my clients are leaders in sales, business development, training, and recruiting who recognize the need to attract customers through Corporate Strategic training of LinkedIn, one on one consulting, and private workshops.

Are You Using SlideShare With Your LinkedIn Profile?

SlideShare is one of the essential LinkedIn applications you must have to enhance your LinkedIn profile.

SlideShare is a social media platform that allows you to upload documents, presentation, infographics, and videos to your site. Slide share has a free account and premium accounts. Free accounts give you the flexibility to add many new individual slideshares to your account.

Infographics: any graphic you have put together for groups, business, or personal information

SlideShare is great for SEO and traffic between LinkedIn and SlideShare lets you rank very high on Google. LinkedIn owns Slideshare so they make it convenient for applications to be seamless between the two social media platforms.

Once you are established on SlideShare other members will follow your uploads and posts. You can also follow people that are influencers on the internet. You can also follow your friends and other LinkedIn connections.
