Clicking on the icon to the left will provide you with a one-page "KEY to Higher Rankings" Guide that you can use to help improve your ranking on LinkedIn searches for people (profiles) associated with key words and/or key phrases.  Use it as a handout along with the accompanying free video (above) and you'll see that your LinkedIn profile will get included in searches and viewed more often.  You are welcome to share the guide with friends. 
We ask you to share credit with the author (LeaderHelper).  Thank you.




Clicking on the icon to the left will provide you with a one-page "Working Tally Sheet" designed to make it easier for you to track progress as you insert keywords and key phrases into your LinkedIn profile to improve your relative ranking (search engine score) on LinkedIn for those keywords or phrases. The MS Excel 97-2003 worksheet is "protected" to reduce the risk of messing up the format.  If you wish to make changes, you can "unprotect" the worksheet without a password.


  Clicking on the icon to the left will provide you with a one-page "Sample Tally Sheet" showing actual results for a LinkedIn user who followed suggestions in the "LinkedIn KEY to Higher Rankings" guide.  You can see that this user's profile ranks #1 in the world for 13 of 20 search criteria.  Keep in mind that searches including the keywords Dallas, DFW, or Texas are not the same as faceted searched based on location.  These are merely keywords used to reduce the number of returned profiles to be ranked.





A 10-min YouTube video overview showing how to use David's "LinkedIn KEY to Higher Rankings" guide.  This easy to follow video gives you insight into how (and why) to use the guide to improve your ranking on LinkedIn.
