  • While people who aren't signed into LinkedIn can see your public profile, the full version of your LinkedIn profile is only visible to your network of 1st-degree, 2nd-degree, and 3rd-degree connections. Tips to get your profile indexed by search engines:Choose "Make my public profile visible to everyone" in your public profile settings.Invite and connect with at least 1 connection.Supplement your profile with additional sections and information.

  • Connections imply that you know the person well or that they're a trusted business contact. LinkedIn warns against adding complete strangers to your network, or accepting an invitation from someone you don't have a trusted relationship with. We'll talk more about this later.================To turn a contact into a connection you need to invite that person to join your network and they need to accept. Likewise, for another person to add you to their network they need to invite you and you need to accept. Regardless of who invites who, when an invitation is accepted, both parties are automatically added to each other's list of connections.Build your connections strategicallyOn LinkedIn, people in your network are called connections and your network is made up of your 1st-degree, 2nd-degree, and 3rd-degree connections and fellow members of your LinkedIn Groups. 1st-degree - People you're directly connected to because you have accepted their invitation to connect, or they have accepted your invitation. You'll see a 1st degree icon next to their name in search results and on their profile. You can contact them by sending a message on LinkedIn. 2nd-degree - People who are connected to your 1st-degree connections. You'll see a 2nd degree icon next to their name in search results and on their profile. You can contact them through an InMail or an introduction. 3rd-degree - People who are connected to your 2nd-degree connections. You'll see a 3rd degree icon next to their name in search results and on their profile. You can contact them through an InMail or an introduction. Fellow members of your LinkedIn Groups - These people are considered part of your network because you're members of the same group. You'll see a Group icon next to their name in search results and on their profile. You can contact them by sending a message on LinkedIn or using your group's discussion feature. Out of Network - LinkedIn members who fall outside of the categories listed above. You can contact them through an InMail. http://help.linkedin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/110The most common reason for a restriction is sending too many invitations to people you don't know. A restriction is automatically triggered if too many invitations are: Declined with the I don't know response.Flagged as Spam.Tips to prevent restrictions: Invite only people that you personally know.Invite only those you'd recommend to others.Personalize your invitation message. Explain how you know them or why you want to connect.Add a current head-shot photo to your profile so people recognize you.Use an InMail or Introduction if you don't know someone's email address.Use the Ignore button for invitations from someone you know but choose not to connect with.Only use the I Don't Know option when you truly don't know the member.http://help.linkedin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1386
