If you’ve ever wondered how people are finding you on LinkedIn, we’ve got you covered with Search Appearances. Go to the dashboard on your profile to check out how many times you appeared in LinkedIn search results this week, and see the companies and job titles of people who found you.

  • search appearance

You can use this information to update your profile and increase your chances of being found on LinkedIn. For example, if you’re a graphic designer and want to be found for “web design” too, you could consider making a few updates to your profile to help. This could be as easy as a quick edit to your profile summary or the addition of this skill.

Small improvements can make a difference over time, and may be all that’s needed to help you find your way in to a new opportunity.
