Well, as far as Social network is worried, it seem I have actually failed – mostly.
Twitter was excellent, but now it is simply so much noise its tough to make heads or tail of it often. Facebook is still developing – I still do not understand where it will end up for a lurker like me. Google Plus is … well, a grand experiment that will ultimately stop working (I think) due to the fact that the other big networks will simply adopt Googles methods and do it more quickly (funny how Google is now perceived as the “dinosaur” by most).
Pinterest – I like it, but its so young and will be unforeseeable for awhile. It has actually done more to spawn brand-new plugins and Pinterest-like Wordpress Themes than its predecessors, though. I hope that indicates its more than just a fad. As it is, it looks like you require thousands of fans to really make an effect on Pinterest at this time.
Right now I have to get some other stuff done. After making the changes and writing this post I did a couple LinkedIn searches.
According to Howes, those are the most crucial spots.
Blog site and Other Websites.
Linking to sites is easy. I had no concept there was a Wordpress app on LinkedIn. I linked this blog site, and may connect something else in the future. There is likewise an events module, Twitter module, and a number of others I will need to look into.

I saw a series of videos by Lewis Howes, author of “LinkedWorking” (revealed listed below this post). I got to enjoy the videos after clicking this link. I endured his sales video (I wish to get his LinkedInfluence video course – it does sound great), and when I attempted to close the window among those “Wait! Dont Go” dialog boxes turned up with a totally free mini-course. Gave him my e-mail address and began seeing the videos.
The current work information – especially the title of the job.
The past work information – ditto about the title.
Peppered throughout your summary details.
Contributed to the “specialties” area (accessed together with your summary).
They are impressive. Extremely helpful.
I decided to follow the techniques in the videos and “pimp” my LinkedIn profile. Up until now, so great. Heres the steps as advised (or, you can just click on the link above and get on his e-mail list:-RRB-).
Make it appear like a good, keyword-rich site title. Capitalize words, put multiple abilities in it (if preferred), and over-sell a bit. My new heading appears like.
AS400/iSeries/Systemi/ IBMi Programmer & & Expert|PHP/Wordpress Coder & & Web Developer|Social Media & & SEO Consultant.
I might fine-tune it over time, but for now I believe that will do.
I was most pleased by how Lewis Howes is the # 1 result for the search term “sports” on LinkedIn. Thats excellent SEO.
His recommendations are (besides the keyword-rich headline) to make sure lots of proper keywords remain in.
