I got a message through LinkedIn from Marie-Claude on LinkedIn. I replied back to the email, which didn’t work.
One of my biggest online pet-peeves is when I HAVE TO log into the system to respond. I hate that. It is very disrespectful to users.
I click on the Reply button on my email, paste my response to Marie, and LinkedIn kicks back this ridiculousness:
So, sorry Marie-Claude. I hope you find this post. Your question:
I am actually in the process of improving my profile and I had a question about key word search. You mention that key words in the summary will determine if your profile shows up in a search. I was wondering if that is true for the experience section of the profile?
I detailed quite a bit my last work experience using lots key words and mentioning major institutions in my field of work. I am hopping that my profile will show up when some of these key words are used in a search. Should I move this information to my summary to improve my viewing statistics?
The real place to put your keywords is in the current or past job titles… that has the biggest impact on search results.
