May’s LinkedIn poll reveals that while LinkedIn maintains a strong presence among job seekers, two out of three users are not using the site for that purpose.

It further emphasizes the polarity discovered in December of 2010 – either you’re job searching or you’re not.

On February 1st, I boldly proclaimed:

“I’m absolutely certain that every major news site will soon be reporting that a cadre of unhappy workers are all looking for something better.”

Let’s take a moment to ring out 2011 and look back at some of the most read articles for the year.

It’s been an interesting one with the release of The Revised LinkedIn Personal Trainer and the public stock offering from LinkedIn. (The later of which didn’t make much of an impact here…)

It’s hard to compare an article written in January against an article written in November – the one’s just been around a whole lot longer to attract attention. So I’ve used a bit of a weighting to try to factor that in.

And so – here they are – the top ten articles from 2011…

How Well Do You Really Know And Use LinkedIn?

Consider this challenge – four years ago it was easier to convince people that holding a training session on LinkedIn was a good idea. It was new, didn’t have any real help facilities, and wasn’t the most straight forward to understand.

But a couple months back I proposed an event that coincided with the release of The Revised LinkedIn Personal Trainer and was essentially rebuffed – the group members didn’t think they’d get much value from it.

And that’s why we came up with this quiz…

Apparently enough to have a private conference!
