How to publish a great article on Linkedin to generate much more traffic to your profile?
Since February 2015 every Linkedin user who has choosen to display its profile in the English language has been in capacity to publish an article on LinkedIn.
At this time, LinkedIn has limited this functionality « Publish » for this language only. It means that, if you are French, Spanish, and so on, you just have to change your parameters by choosing « English » to be able to publish on the platform.
Why to publish and which advantage will you be able to take from this feature?
You are certainly used to posting updates on LinkedIn. Nevertheless, you need to know that by publishing an article you will drive 4 times more traffic to your profile because:
