    As title says I'd like to get more connections to my linkedin account and not get it banned in the process. What is the best way to do that?

    Thanks!

    Join Linkedin networking groups - LIONs and Toplinked are two that I remember.

    Also search for the most connected Linkedin users - they tend to be the people who accept all connections.

    Just make sure to ignore people with the maximum 30K connections as they are unable to accept you.

    Another idea is to make sure your email address is in your profile and state clearly that you accept all invites - that way other people growing their network will link to you as well.

    1. Be active on Linkedin daily. Little by little into a lot.
    2. Make your profile. Show your skill / expertise area or business. Complete it 100%.
    3. Use the "alumni" searh feature to find connections from your high school, college or university
    4. Ask your connections to endorse your expertise area.
    5. Join groups that related to your business and take part in the conversations.

    Completing from all the suggestions above.
    I would say that you focus on networking with LIONs (Linkedin Open Networkers)
    This people usually share their email on their personal profiles or groups.
    Also you can add up to 500 persons from a Group, try to add those people that participate the most on that specific Group.
