How to Get #1 Ranking on Linkedin Search

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Executive Realty 91362

Interested in getting ranked at the top of Linkedin for local keyword searches related to the Real Estate industry or any industry for that matter? Of course you are and who wouldn't! Watch the video below of renowned Linkedin expert Lewis Howes. In the video Lewis explains the simple tips to get your profile out in front of more people in your area.

Linkedin is one of the best sites that allows you to network with other professionals that eventually could become business prospects. The site could be a good source of potential referrals if you build relationships with those in your network.

If you do not have a complete profile I would encourage you to work on it. Take a look at my Linkedin profile and you can see there are a number of things you can do to promote your page including having your blog articles fed right into the site. Looking at my Linkedin profile you will notice that both my Active Rain Posts along with my Massachusetts Real Estate Blog on Wordpress are both fed into the site.

You will also see that my Twitter feed is sent to the site as well. The more information your page has the better. There are many consumers that will search out Realtors and others in the profession just for the sole reason that they understand how social media can be used to promote their business. We all know just how powerful the Internet has become for those seeking to find a great professional to work with.

Joining local and national groups is also something you can do to share your expertise. If you are a member of any of the popular Real Estate groups you will see that I am an avid fan of sharing some of the better Real Estate articles that I have written. What are you waiting for? Linkedin is another way to better your social media marketing presence!

Bill, Thanks for sharing, great tips. I would like to return the favor and share a LinkedIn tip: YOu can edit your website and blog descriptions: go to Profile, edit, and click on the edit tab to the right of "my website", then click on the drop down arrow next to the first column, and select Other, then in the second column type in the title of your blog or website, and in the thrid column type in the URL. This will increase key word opportunity on your profile. You can check my LinkedIn profile at Good luck.

Sylvie - The reason I do not have them named is because it will make your links "no follow" if you do that. By not naming them you get SEO benefits.

Hello Bill, thanks for the post. So far the main tip Lewis gave has not brought me the results I'm looking for. However, I will continue to tweak my profile and see if I'm missing something.

Thanks for the post Bill.  I'm very active on Twitter and Facebook (wordpress too) but have yet to really get involved much with LinkedIn, beyond the simple profile page.  I'll check this out.

Thanks Bill for all the great info and vids. LInkedin is more about referrals and you cant complain about getting a nice little ref fee by just being infront of them.
