One more request for LinkedIn

I reread Guy's post on LinkedIn and came up with another feature I really want.

I want to know who has been viewing my profile on LinkedIn. There are two profiles actually; the application interface (if you are a member) and the web/public interface.

I want to know:

- Other LinkedIn members who are viewing my LinkedIn profile; when, who, how long, search strings, etc.
- How many page views my LinkedIn public profile receives.

Is this available? After reading Guy's blog entry, I probably have missed something.

Guy Kawasaki on LinkedIn

I repeat, I am a big fan and user of LinkedIn.

I found this link from Guy's blog advertised on LinkedIn.

Some great suggestion for using LinkedIn most of which I had never known or considered. (Which explains why Guy is really successful and I am usually a "ride along").

I might add though, it is worthwhile to include your email address in your profile. LinkedIn limits the ability to make contact with other LinkedIn users unless you know their email address or have a direct network contact.

"But Jack, what about spam!?" - umm it's 2007. Most everyone and every ISP has spam filters now. My work email does, GMail does, Yahoo does. If you have not updated your email client since 1996, you deserve all the Nigerian bank scams you get.

I have not started including my LinkedIn button on my blog or other websites yet like everyone is doing now. My bad I guess.

Blogger Two revisited - neat feature

Check out this from the Blogger FAQ.

Why is this interesting.

OK, step back to yesterday and Jen's Blog Optimization Tips. Jen recommends having a domain name for your blog rather than just (read: Wordpress, Typepad, Blogspot).

Problem is, Blogger One, which Marketing Me is still hosted on (blame the Luddite behind the keyboard) is does not offer the domain option cited in said FAQ above. Blogger One depends upon FTP of blogspot to a provider of domain.

Some time ago, I registered with plans of moving Marketing Me over. My plans may change this weekend.

Rather than blowing up Marketing Me on Saturday, I may upgrade Marketing Me to Blogger Two (now out of beta), damn the torpedoes. I really like that domain feature and have been paying GoDaddy for the domain, so let's get 'er done.

After all, "What do you want to do, blog forever?".
