Linkedin profile views in the past 90 days

It all started when a friend at a BBs told me that he had 800+ views on his Linkedin profile in the past 90 days... That made me curious on what the average number of views WSO members receive.

To get a better idea, could you include your status (student, analyst/associate, etc)

Now pissing contests about LinkedIn profile views is the new thing among college sophomores?

Jesus christ, some of the stuff said on this site is ludicrous

I have 16. I don't use LNKD at all. Titles are R/E investor, Broker, operations manager for one rehab company, owner of my own property management company. It's mostly recruiters, people selling real estate services and insurance and shit trying to set up calls, people I used to work with, and occasionally my wife's colleagues.

LinkedIn is now garbage. I'd go so far as to say that if someone appears to be "LinkedIn successful" they're probably not all that successful.

Why so? A lots of HHs send inmails to invite to PE breakfasts (most of MFs do so), networking or interviews....

A lot of LinkedIn content I see is mindless self-promotion and inflated titles/jobs. It's semi-professional Facebook. Now, like you said, there are some good uses for it and some great users on it, especially in recruiting.

~700, semi-target UK student and did a spring at an EB.

Profile Views is not necessarily a good thing. Whenever my employer announces layoffs, or right after bonus season I would get a sudden surge in profile views from recruiters for a few weeks/months. They are like sharks.

You can literally drive views just by looking at other people's profiles. They'll be curious as to who you are and why you're looking at their profile. Additionally, you can drive views by inflating your job title. It's fairly obvious as a VP or Director before the age of 30 means there is title inflation. Don't inflate your title. Work hard. Gun for promotions. Move companies sometimes. Life is a math problem. Optimize your value per hour. Look out for #1 and stop looking for external validation. You'll be much happier.

It's a stupid metric.
