Below is a list I’m compiling of all my LinkedIn tips and tricks in one easy to find place. Make sure to bookmark this as I will be continually adding to it. 

Change “Viewers of This Profile Also Viewed” Setting

Sometimes it’s OK for everything to be all about you. Your profile is a perfect example. The fewer distractions people have the better. After all, they are there to connect and learn about you, not someone else.

By default, on the sidebar of your LinkedIn profile, there is a section with courses and then a list called “People Also Viewed.” The downfall to this is that people might click into one of these and leave your profile.

You can easily remove the “People Also Viewed” profile section. Click on your picture at the top and then into “Settings & Privacy.”

Change the “Viewers of this profile also viewed” to No.

As you can see, now on the sidebar of my LinkedIn profile there are only courses listed, but not other people’s profiles.
