CHAPTER 2: Getting Found And Showing Up Search Engine: LinkedIn is its own search engine – and it’s one of the best there is for scoring potential clients. It’s far better than Google in that regard. However, those who are performing searches often can’t find what they are looking for on LinkedIn. Why? Most user profiles aren’t optimized or set up properly or If someone types in “Melbourne Chiropractor,” and you were a chiropractor in Melbourne… would you show up at the top of the LinkedIn results? // Page 7
On the right hand column of your profile page you will see this:
Not too impressive huh!
How Often Do You Show Up? In this particular case, this person’s profile has only shown up 6 times in LinkedIn search results in the past 90 days.
We can easily improve on these numbers. This is a stark contrast to another profile we’ve worked . Let’s take a look at it here.

152 search results in the past day! How is it possible?
Optimization. The answer lies in optimizing your account with keywords that your ideal clients would be searching for on LinkedIn. Optimizing your profile is not something difficult at all.

Now if you are on the first page, you have done well. Congratulations! If not, do not despair. We can get you to optimize your profile and who up on page one if you follow our tips. Activity: Go to the first Massage Therapist that shows up on your search. At the top right corner, you will see the word “sort by” with a drop down list. Choose sort by keyword… // Page 10
This will give you an indication of who is currently at the top for the term you’d like to rank for. Click on that profile. Then open a new browser tab and go to this site: http://wordle.net. Once there, click on “create” on their home page – we’re going to create a word cloud. // Page 11
You should be able to see something that looks like this:
Now go back to the profile that appeared at the top of the list for the keyword you’d like to rank for. Go to “Edit->Select all” at the top of your browser window… See diagram shows on next page.

Once you’ve selected all the text on the profile that is currently number one in LinkedIn, go back to Edit->Copy to copy it. Then go back to Wordle and paste everything you have copied into Wordle and click “Go”.
You’ll end up with Wordle cloud. Here is one I created for “Denver Massage Therapist “…

Activity: Repeat the above steps to get keywords for the profiles who are appearing second and third and see if their words are relevant to you. The more content you have on your profile, the higher you are likely to rank in LinkedIn Search.

Additional Notes: Ideally, you would mention the surrounding suburbs, counties and cities you have also serviced, so hopefully you show up in their results as well. Finally, the more content you have on your profile, the higher you are likely to rank in LinkedIn search, and also the more terms youâ€™ll likely get ranked for. You should try as much as possible to fill out as keyword rich, and with detailed information, each section in LinkedIn.
