LinkedIn is taking another page from the playbooks of Facebook and Twitter with its latest ad product.LinkedIn introduced Sponsored Updates on Tuesday, which will let the more than 3 million companies on the social network pay to promote updates to a broader audience, rather than just to those users who already follow them.

“With Sponsored Updates, marketers will be able to distribute this content directly to relevant professionals in a place their customers and prospects are already consuming professionally relevant content,” David Hahn, LinkedIn’s vice president of product management, said in a statement. “Marketers can target Sponsored Updates to any segment of our premium audience based on professional profile data across more than 225 million members.”

LinkedIn update

LinkedIn has borrowed several features from other social networks like Facebook and Twitter in recent years, including overhauling its homepage and setting up a news feed to highlight updates and discussions from users and brands.

Facebook currently offers an ad product called Sponsored Stories and Twitter boasts a series of promoted products, including Promoted Trends and Tweets. Unlike these other networks, though, LinkedIn generates most of its revenue from recruiting products and premium subscriptions.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
