Compare your profile's popularity
Most recently, LinkedIn added a new tab to its most popular feature, Who's Viewed Your Profile. Called How You Rank, it shows you how much traffic your profile generates compared to your connections and other people from your company. LinkedIn displays your rank among your connections at the top -- both in percentage and numerical rank -- and shares whether your rank has improved or decreased in the last week. This information is visible only to you; your connections cannot see it.
The new How You Rank feature is a handy tool for all LinkedIn users, the company said. If you're looking for a job, hiring managers are more likely to look at your profile if you look at theirs, LinkedIn said. "Nearly 80% of candidates today are found through networking -- so if you notice a recruiter at a company you're interested in has viewed your profile, don't be afraid to reach out to them."
