    No, alone it’s kinda useless.

      Social media accounts on their own don’t provide much link juice, but of course if you have decent social media visibility (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn) it may help but alone they don’t do the job.

      It’s not searchable and it’s a profile. It doesn’t provide a good SEO boost.

      It is as much as fb twitter and IG but they don’t help with rankings except in extreme cases where your posts on social media gets viral or your page has a lot of activity.

      What works nowadays to help boost rankings?

    Yes, in a way. If it’s just about branding Linkedin profiles rank near the top due to very low SPAM. If it’s for a website then I don’t believe so but I can’t see how it would hurt you.

    Just having a profile is useless. Utilising it and using it, will help!

    I thought it would pass a bit of PR7 juice my way.

    LinkedIn profile or “link in profile” like what people do on Instagram?

    Essentially it’s a nofollow link. So there is no inherent SEO value. (However whether social signals do impart some kind of SEO value hasn’t been 100% disproven). Not to mention you’re getting some link diversity there.

    But, what I can say is that you could at least drive some direct referral traffic, as well as developing a signal of trust as you’re putting a name out there, and potentially use it to retarget, and almost “hit people from multiple angles”.

    So short answer – there may be no SEO boost, but it’s still got value in terms of contributing to your overall digital strategy.

    It’s worked for me – my LinkedIn is usually the top 2 results if someone searches my name on google. Can someone please explain how it works?

      LinkedIn has little to no SPAM due to the nature of it’s network so Google see’s LinkedIn profiles as highly credible.
