    It’s silly that they do not show you the person’s real name. I actually just canceled my membership fee with Linkedin this week. It was not worth it for me.

    I canceled mine too since i dont see it as beneficial and as you said it dont display the person’s real name. That really sucks. Cheers.

    Welcome Dental Websites. Way to find those do follow lists.

    I noticed that a few weeks ago on my Linked In account and to be honest am not impressed as you say it doesn’t show who’s REALLY looking.

    I so wish they would allow some form of tracking.

    To the naysayers Linked In has been very, very kind to me and my small business over the past few years and hopefully, one day, recruiters and such will accept this in place of a silly old style Word Doc…..

    I also like VisualCV for networking and the save as pdf will – please! – serve as a replacement for resumes – not that I’m actually looking for a day job – I do get several 10 99 jobs through LI and VCV

    Nice post – is there anyway to delete these lack of substance spammy posts Andrew…..?

    I have been trying to give some of my new “dofollow” posters a slight benefit of the doubt. Mr. Dental Websites above at least made a kind of relevant comment. But maybe I should get a little tougher.

    Hi Andrew,

    I have you listed on our “Do Follow List” I can remove your site if you would like. We verify the list weekly and I do see a lot of the same commenter’s.

    We have stressed that they should add to the conversation but I can not control that.

    Having said all of that I really do enjoy your blog and we have been reading you for a while now. Thanks for the good work.

    For a couple of weeks after you put up the list it was definitely spammy commenter heaven over here but it looks like it’s dying down. If it comes back I’ll ping you. Thanks.
