Getting more profile views on LinkedIn is a direct result of
your activity on the social network for professionals. There
are many ways to be active, such as writing articles,
endorsing other members, or using the update function.
However the most common way to generate activity is to
comment on the postings of others.

One simple trick will allow you to take this powerful tool and
place it on steroids. Here is a simple “How To”.

When you receive updates from your connections or
notifications of group activity the most common way to join
in the activity is to post a comment to the article or update.
By doing so your comment will appear on the pages of
those with whom you are connected and those subscribed
to person originally making the posting.

More than 90% of the postings people make reference an
article on another website, such as a Blog or news service,
or have a live link to an article posted on LinkedIn. Either
way the most successful users will go to that site so they
can make an intelligent comment. But once they are ready
to make a comment they will close out the source article
and place the comment only on the referring posting they
were delivered by LinkedIn’s notification services.

To double your effectiveness leave a comment on the
source article and copy the response to your clipboard.
After leaving it there you return to the original notification
sent by LinkedIn and paste the same comment. This has
the ability of doubling your impact as both places have
different articles. In fact, if the original posting is on
Harvard
Business Review or Forbes, as most seem to be, these
postings can draw an even greater response than LinkedIn
because of their high subscription count.

Thus, with virtually no additional activity you have doubled
your exposure.
