(top 10 reasons) 18
  • 19.  Have a 100% complete profile. Fill summary and specialties section with words/phrases describing your expertise Get a vanity URL – your name if possible & make sure your profile is “public” Your past work history should go back 10 years. Explain what you did at each company. Fill out the summary section, add substance; consider it your “elevator pitch”. Write/get Recommendations & ask/answer questions on LinkedIn Answers Continually build on your connections Comment on the LinkedIn blog and link back to your LinkedIn profile Don’t forget the additional information section – When adding websites, click on the “other” section. You can name your website and that will act as anchor text for the link. 19
  • 20.  Target your audience by: • Company Size • Job Function • Industry • Seniority • Geography Pay by clicks or impressions with starting budget as low as $50 (details) Example: ad seen only by Accountants at Manager or Director level, with companies larger than 1,000 employees and in the Atlanta area 20
  • 21.  Use AND, OR and – when searching Search by company name and job title Search by “Joined since last login” for freshness Select “Relationships + Recommendations” in search forms Sort By field and connect with top results to broaden your network Click "Save this Search" atop results page to get ongoing notification of new matches Recommenders are frequently managers and peers Include your LinkedIn profile in your emails! You can guess about how long someone’s been on LinkedIn by looking at their “Key” • Example: Shally Steckerls profile is from mid 2004 and his number is 155,699 21
  • 22.  Look for documents named “resume” • Using intitle: looks for words coded into the HTML “title” field, frequently the “name” of the file  intitle:resume director software site:il Or saved in locations called “resume” • Using inurl: looks for words in the names of folders or addresses where the file is located  inurl:resume director software site:il 22
  • 23.  Beyond just resumes, also try words like: • bio, profile, about, us, our • team, staff, people, alumni • roster, list, directory, members, attendees, board • speakers, panel, agenda, officers, minutes • Example: Haifa Intel (intitle:alumni OR intitle:people OR intitle:staff OR intitle:about OR intitle:bio OR intitle:profile OR intitle:team OR intitle:our OR inurl:about OR inurl:bio OR inurl:profile OR inurl:our OR inurl:team OR inurl:alumni OR inurl:people OR inurl:staff) 23
  • 24. Searching with site: looks through the entire site: • • director • ~CV 24
  • 25.  Most Search Engines can find documents written in: MS Word (doc), Adobe (pdf), Rich Text (rtf), Plain text (txt), PowerPoint (ppt), Excel (xls), and others Use filetype: to find only that kind of document • Resumes are frequently written in Word and Adobe (filetype:doc OR filetype:pdf) • Useful information can be found in Excel and PowerPoint (filetype:xls OR filetype:ppt) • Try including domains, common field column headers for name lists (Name, Title, Company, Phone, Email), etc., into your strings:  filetype:xls *  filetype:xls (Alumni OR Attendee) Teva Pharmaceuticals 25
  • 26.  Search the world’s largest discussion forums for your target people, organizations, teams, events, products, etc. Generate RSS feeds and aggregate data from: • Google Groups (highly customizable) • Yahoo! Groups • Big Boards (huge list of online discussion groups) • BoardReader and Board Tracker (both great search and RSS feeds) What happens if you Wordle any of the above RSS feeds? Images, files and other documents can be found using filetype: searches but sometimes they are converted before being shared online. Look for them in document repositories like Docstock, Scribd, SlideShare, Toodoc, and others. Search the big four on Bing, just add your keywords 26
  • 27.  Natural Phrases • "developed * applications” •|worked.for|at|on|with (company OR job title OR jargon) • "I|Im work|worked|working for|at|on|with" COMPANY • COMPANY ("my team" OR "our team") • worked "contact me“ • "is|was an * at COMPANY" and “I was|am an * at COMPANY” Other Patterns • "mailto: *” • author 27
  • 28.  Peer regression reveals people who influenced or were influenced by your target entities Finding other names in image/PDF captions • “Lucien Bronicki" ("l. to r." OR "l to r" OR "left to right" OR "r. to l." OR "r to l" OR "right to left" OR "back row:" OR "clockwise from") • Try names of events, groups or companies The 3+ name method works on people (like attracts like): • "shally steckerl" “dave mendoza" “morit rozen” References on blogs & social networks: • Google blogsearch for “and firstname lastname” 28
  • 29.  Image search cleans SEO spam • Results are only web pages containing images with names or tags that match your search, thus eliminating much of the garbage. Try this Google Images example! • Text used to classify images are: snippet of text before or after the image, anchor text on any link pointing to the image, “alt” text of the image, image url Zuula Images searches, try the “faces” mode  • Google, Bing, Exalead, Pixsy, Flickr, Photobucket, SmugMug, Picasa TinEye reverse image search finds people based on certifications, product logos, company logos, application logos and icons, peoples photos, building or location photos, etc. (hint: use images found above) 29
  • 30.  People being interviewed by bloggers or the local news can easily spill the beans and give juicy details • Ex: "is an iphone developer" Search transcripts of video via: • • • • • an online search service for news and current events recognizes people, companies, topics, places and keywords; understands how they relate to each other in the news flow, and puts them in context 30
