LinkedSEO at LinkedIn

I was just updating my linkedin account (which I rarely find time to do - but should do more often) and was distracted by the "LinkedSEO" group. It's an invite only group for, you guessed it, SEO.

One of the features I like best about the web site is the ability to drill down to a geographic location (American city or country) and see who's the most linked in. Here's the top 15 connected SEOs in the United Kingdom. I know some of them!

Well done to David. If you're called David you've a 2/5 chance of being in the top 5 :)

On a more serious note it's good to see Rob Kerry/ evilgreenmoney from SEW's forums listed so high - shows that the voice of the forums is planted firmly in the middle of the SEO community.

The full list is here on LinkedSEO and if you know me at all then my profile is public too.

Thanks for the shout out Andrew and good to see you at the top of the list. Would be cool to meet up with you at a future LondonSEO event :)

i have engaged in a bit of linked in SEO. I changed my profile so that my name became

First name : Trevor Ginn
Second name | eBay consultant

This goes into the title tag of the gate, helping you get picked out for relevant searches.

Hi Andrew, unfortunately we haven't had time to get our LinkedSEO community ideas of the ground yet, but would be good if you can make it to one of our upcoming LondonSEO.org meets.
