A couple (maybe a few by now) of weeks ago I noticed a new feature on LinkedIn. When looking at my dashboard I have always seen this (I have a LinkedIn Pro account):
When I click on “9” I see the new personal profile stats which include the number of times my profile has been visited in the past 90 days:
And how many times I have appeared in a search:
I can see the industry of those who viewed my profile (based on their profile setting):
I can also see Top Search Keywords which I have not put in this post because, well… I do not mind sharing most things but I like how people are finding me and I would rather keep that a secret.
There is a “Viewers by Geography” which is a world map and not a surprise that 95%+ of those visiting me are in the U.S.
I plan on watching this more closely as I have seen some trends (spikes) based on when I appear in articles, do presentations, etc.
I will also be paying attention to the “Staffing and Recruiting” and “Human Resources” and IT related visitors as I am doing my Q4 and 2011 marketing along with prepping to do IT contracting and consulting work. I expect these numbers to grow quite a bit.
For those who have a LinkedIn Pro account care to share your statistics in the comments below or by email?
I am curious to know what others are seeing.
