Due to the just-introduced Commercial Use Limit on Search, many LinkedIn members are hitting the search quota for the month in the first day or two of January 2015 – and have to wait another month to search again. LinkedIn didn’t say how many searches are “too many”; the experience shows it’s around sixty searches for one month.

I find limiting the search for unpaid accounts reasonable. It’s not new; a number of commercial search system have similar limitations.

If you are struggling with the new limits on searching and are not ready to go with a paid account yet:

1) There are a number of ways to search that are not counted in the monthly quota. These ways are no substitute for the advanced member search, but can be quite useful. This includes:

2) Naturally, Googling for LinkedIn profiles (“X-Raying”) remains unlimited!

Use this Custom Search Engine to X-Ray LinkedIn:

(I have updated the Search Engine URL to provide up to 1,000 results.) Here are some example uses:

Enjoy!
