That is notgood. The more detail you provide, the better your chances of getting indexed. Some things you must includeare your relevant job titles, description, summary, and skills. You should also add a professional picture, yourblog, a slideshare on a relevant topic, video, and your website. Ideally, you should find a way to incorporateyour keywords into all these fields, but don’t overdo it.Choose Your Keywords WiselyYour keywords must be included on your profile, but they must be the right keywords. Choosing the wrongkeywords is worse than having none at all. When you’re thinking keywords, think of the words that prospectiveemployers will use to search for someone with your expertise. Hint: They will not be searching for your name,unless you’re well known and respected in your industry. For instance, if you’re an accountant your keywordswill include CPA, accountant, tax specialist, etc. In the case of a company, you need to use product names orinclude the type of services which your company offers.BonusBacklinks will help to increase the visibility of your LinkedIn profile. Link out from your profile to your blog,website, and videos on YouTube as long as it will support who you are and what you do. You will also need toinclude links to your profile from your blog, Twitter, Facebook, email signatures, and any other place whereyou’re visible on the web.» Login or register now to comment!Connect:See complete profileAuthored by:Anil ValviAnil Valvi is the Owner & Founder of Dynastic Tech .
