To be honest, till about 6 months back, LinkedIn for me was just a networking tool which I used to connect with people known to me and people in the same domain. After digging deep into what could be the uses of LinkedIn and how it could help me with my blog, I have gathered loads of tips on how LinkedIn could get me targeted traffic to my blog and increase the number of ‘readers’ for my blog. So here are 11 tips to make sure you can maximize the use of being present on LinkedIN.
Hope you will make maximum use of these steps and increase blog traffic. IF you know of any more tips, please share them here, we will be glad to hear from you.

I’m doing well with your first three methods, but I’m spotty on the others. I’ve just recently put a bit more effort into LinkedIn, primarily in my main writing specialty. I do see the potential that it could help me land good projects in the future.
But I feel far more connected with Facebook, Twitter, and, of course, blogs.
These points are good if your blog shares the same ideas as your profile. Means if it is a professional blog that matches to your linkedin profile. If it’s something like a personal blog then no way to put that link there 🙂
I never knew the 10th option, thanks
WOW! Never knew LinkdIn can help Bloggers as well 🙂 Going to update my account right now! Thanks for the nice article buddy 🙂
This is a very interesting post. I actually have a linkin but I haven’t been using it. After reading your post I really think that I should. Thanks!
One good thing about LinkedIn compared to the other social network sites is that your contacts tend to be business people who are visiting the site with their business, rather than social, hat on. So simply asking your contacts to recommend your blog to their contacts tends to work wonders. Of course it depends on the subject of the blog, but for me it has helped me increase traffic to mine.
I opened a LinkedIn account a few days back. I posted my website and that is all I did. I guess after reading this, I can apply some of the steps mentionned. Thanks
