    What Facebook’s algorithms take away, LinkedIn can bring back   

    LinkedIn gave publishers an excellent Christmas present last year: a big bump in traffic.  In the first month after LinkedIn changed its algorithm, Business Insider saw its referral traffic from the platform rise by 300%.

    LinkedIn is now one of BI’s top sources of social referral traffic and a place where we’ve found a highly engaged audience that likes to spend quite a bit of time with our content. It’s also a place where a little investment can go a really long way.

    1. How to use LinkedIn to drive traffic to your site
    2. How to find the right voice for your audience on LinkedIn
    3. How LinkedIn can you help you build your presence on other platforms
    4. What tools are available to manage your LinkedIn page
    5. What type of content works best on LinkedIn
