    It's probably because 3 people have hit the 'I don't know this person' button. More commonly known as being IDK'd.

    If you contact Linkedin, apologise and promise not to do it again they may well reinstate your account back to normal.

    You admit to adding 50 people a day you do not know and then call linkedin a fucked up website because their system is doing its job?

    Ok, sorry for the spam.

    I found a perfect way to network on Linkedin!!!

    1. You scrape all Emails you can get.
    2. You format your csv like this:

    Email
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    3. You import the complete list in gmail
    4. You click on "add contacts" in linkedin
    5. Have fun!

    If you have been randomly adding people, they do have the option to hit the 'Don't Know This Person' button and after so many it will trigger a ban from doing that. I would attempt to contact linkedin and explain to them and see if they will drop the ban.

    Adding people randomly is always risky. If you have a set amount of people who click the button to say they don't know you then it will eventually trigger that there is a problem and you will be penalized for adding like that.

    as experience i send about 50 invitations per day and never been banned...keys are:
    - spun text and name of the person
    - 2nd degree only
    - delay between send requests (optimal 60sec)

    Hi

    I always send a personalize message in add request.
    That worked for me always.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks

    There is something I dont understand. I have created a new linkedin account saying I am an recruiter. Now I wanted to send invitations to get connections - I sent one to my real account, I selected that this person is "Friend", the invitation came to my mail, I accepted it, everything went ok.

    Now I tried to send invites to unknown people, but I dont see "connect" button anymore, only "Send InMail" and this is possible with premium account only :( HELP, how are you sending 50 invites per day with new account? I would send less, maybe 20, with personal spun messages...

    I've gotten banned before and got reinstated no problem. Now I only click to connect on the "people you may know page" since you do not have to select how you know them. There are scripts to do this on autopilot.
