you'll get traffic for sure and won't hurt your page if that's your concern

Linkedin does not like the traffic that goes outside linkedin, so i use linkedin for business and write short exclusive to linkedin post in order to interact with the people and make business. They go to your website, but that does not have a great impact in my SEO at least. Also is true i don't drive thousand of people, market is really small here and im the number 1 million Digital Marketing agency here, so is saturated. But you can use linkedin to make a name, people will ask for you, and visit your website.

Write interesting posts that can reach at minimum 2000 people and die very fast, and publications (i wonder if that is the english name) that last forever but reach not that much people, and also the efectivity is not forever it last for a month+ if is not really popular.

In conclusion, no, is not good for SEO, dont waste too much time on linkedin if your target is the SERP, but invest enough time if your target is doing business.

Edit: If you need the backlinks, use the coments, and never the post itself, in publications you can use a link, but i'm not sure 100% if that impact the reach of the publication. Every link that is in your post should be directed to another linkedin page, and every external link, should be made in coments. That is how i do it at least.

LinkedIn SEO works the same way SEO works on your website. Strategically placed keywords throughout your profile helps you get found by the LinkedIn search algorithm and rank you at the top of search results.

I agree with Koffein on many points, let me add five cents:
1) IMO, the Linkedin team does everything possible to link traffic to the social network itself. At the start of linkedin, such powerful functions were available as sending messages to a separate group of people, mass inviting users to their social network, etc.
2) now, after the majority of influencers have created their social capital, most of the functionality that would be interesting to the CEO is cut off or included in the paid functionality.
3) Also, everything very much depends on the product that you offer. If your product is B2B-oriented, then the project will be more successful than B2C. For example, selling commodities will be much more successful than selling food; searching for SAP R / 3 projects will be much more successful than pitching Android applications. Also, traffic from Linkedin will be stable only if your products are oriented to B2B. Otherwise, you will get fast traffic growth with the same fast drop.

Yes, the quality of LinkIn's traffic is high. it’s easy to get traffic to a certain category (for example, company owners, programmers or others). That is why, I believe that Linkedin is underestimated in comparison with Facebook, Instagram and other social networks. Moreover, with the help of linkedin you can get access to decision makers in companies. This is the case when, to solve the problem, one email can cost thousands.

I also want to say a little about the groups:
Linkedin groups are a good source of high-quality traffic for SEO. Unfortunately, many people see in the social network only a source for sales and constantly pop their products into all groups. For example, a company selling market analytic reports viewed linkedin as a direct source of leads and customers to purchase reports. Each link asked the visitor to register or buy a particular report. As practice shows, such aggressive marketing in linkedin does not work. Conversely, soft, natural, friendly marketing brings tremendous results, including a synergistic effect. Groups are a great way to build a large community, increase brand recognition, etc. This is the lyrics, and now a little practice, what a beginner SEO needs to do in linkedin:
1) select the target audience for your product / service
a) individual user accounts
b) groups matching your criteria

2) the easiest (and least efficient) to collect audience emails and work with them through direct marketing

harder (but much more efficient):

engage users in discussions, build relationships, interest and convince them. This is much more labor intensive than other working methods. Old methods do not work here or work with low efficiency. In large volumes - this is a job for bots.

3) Profit! :)

Suppose that you have a company, and you have created a page on LinkedIn to boost SEO. Firstly, you need to understand that LinkedIn is like another website of your company, as it is the largest professional platform. In respect of SEO, it will ensure a few things, such as -

  • Attracting more target audience
  • Reader engagement
