It’s worth checking ‘Who’s Viewed Your Profile?’ on LinkedIn for two reasons. Firstly, it’s an indicator of how good you are at attracting interest in your profile. You should look to steadily grow the number of visitors who are checking you out. You can do this by optimising your profile. getting yourself noticed in Groups and Answers and regulaarly making status updates. Outside of LinkedIn you can publicise your profile link – make sure this is customised – on business cards, in your email signature and on your website.
Secondly, take note of who’s been looking at your profile. If they’ve shown an interest in you it’s an opportunity for you to connect and start a conversation with them.
