Go to the “who viewed my profile” page on LinkedIn
How do you find out who has viewed your profile? This function is easily accessible on LinkedIn:
- Click on the “You” icon that displays your photo at the top of the homepage;
- Choose “View Profile.”
- From there, click on “who viewed your profile” in your dashboard banner.
Note: you can also access this information from the home page: below your photo on the left side of the page, click on “views your profile”.
The benefits of this feature
Knowing who is viewing your profile is extremely informative. In fact, most of the time, members who are trying to find out who you are display their profession. This allows you to test several strategies to target the right people for your career goal.
This is a great opportunity to send a personalized invitation like “Hi X, I see you visited me. I’d be happy to talk with you about [your common interest]. See you soon! »
The limitations of the “who viewed my profile” page
Be aware that if you have a free LinkedIn account, you can only see the last 5 visits. Also, some people set their visit to be anonymous, so you will simply see “a LinkedIn member has seen your profile” or “a journalist in the Information Services industry has seen your profile”.
To have full access to all members who have viewed your LinkedIn profile, you can sign up for a paid LinkedIn Premium version. Whether you have a free account or a Premium subscription, jump on these opportunities and take advantage of them to fine-tune the pace and content of your LinkedIn posts!
