1. Embrace an honest photograph within the head.
LinkedIn calls your photograph “your virtual shake,” and that they ar most likely right.
According to LinkedIn, “users with photos get more profile views and up to 36 times more posts.”
Without a snapshot in a puzzle, you are effectively invisible on LinkedIn, no matter how fabulous the rest of your profile will be. You may appear in search results, but people are much less likely to click on your name or contact you.
People usually assume that a profile missing in the head is intended for someone who is clueless, hiding something or a fake. None of these reasons will make people click your name in the search results, and your LinkedIn activity will be very limited.
People told me that they were missing a photo so that they would not be discriminated against at work. Unfortunately, lowering a photo does not reduce discrimination. It only affects the timing of discrimination – if someone does not want to hire you because of your age, race or gender, they will not hire you after the interview.
Skipping photos is unlikely to result in less discrimination. True influence is a drastic restriction of your visibility inside LinkedIn.

2. Be consistently active on LinkedIn.
The less active and visible you are on LinkedIn, the lower your name will likely appear in LinkedIn search results. Daily participation seems to be the best approach, and participation can be ten or fifteen minutes a day, perhaps less.
Make the appropriate updates. Share good information from solid sources.
The goal is to show LinkedIn (and recruiters) that you regularly visit, so if you are found in the search results and someone contacts you, you will respond within a reasonable amount of time.
3. Demonstrate that you are a professional!
Pay attention to your spelling and grammar. Poor spelling or grammar is one of the main reasons why people are ignored by recruiters and others. The lack of an important keyword, such as “manager” (often replaced by “manger”), excludes you from the search results for an important keyword.
In addition, if you are rude or nasty to other members, causing you to be blocked or your connections to choose to disconnect, LinkedIn knows and is unlikely to make you very high in the search results if you have absolutely no competition.
Do not confuse LinkedIn with Facebook. LinkedIn is intended for professional visibility, and not to share your views on politics, religion or sport, if your profession is not related to politics, religion or sport. Skip photos of parties and other materials not related to your profession.
4. Share your LinkedIn URL.
In the SEO world, this is called creating “back links”, but for your profile in this case, and not for your website or blog. If you have a website or blog, add the LinkedIn URL to your biography or contact information and include it in your LinkedIn profile if they are related to your profession.
Also, include the LinkedIn URL in your resume and applications for work, add it to your career portfolio (with your resume, etc.) And don’t forget to put it in your “signature” at the bottom of your entire email. .

5. Update your profile.
Keep your profile up to date on what’s happening in your career.
View your profile monthly or more often. Add new content, especially new achievements and skills, training and good news about your employer.
Even if you are in a state of transition between tasks, update your profile. [Think of your LinkedIn profile as a personalized marketing portfolio. Think: what would an employer want to know about you? Why does the employer hire you? Why does anyone want to work with you? Include this information in your profile.
