Sometimes, Google indexes words from the pages’ source code that do not appear on pages. This includes the alt tag, dd tag, and a few other cases.
Here are some practical search examples. You can utilize the hidden-but-found words well in LinkedIn X-Ray!
- Find LinkedIn members by job location. (This is not possible on LinkedIn, even in keywords). site:linkedin.com “work location * san francisco bay area”
- “I accept direct messages and business inquiries by anyone on LinkedIn for free, even if we’re not connected.”
- People recommended by Donna site:linkedIn.com/in “Click here to view Donna Svei, Executive Resume Writer’s profile”

Henk, thanks! Do not forget the “graphic” word – though if a group name is unique, you can skip it.
But how does point 2 work?
Great tips! How can I use the site:linkedin.com “work location * san francisco bay area” for finding diversity candidates?
Thank you! To search for Diversity, you can add “diversity indicators” such as names, pronouns, and school and association names you research ahead of time. We teach a class on Diversity – https://sourcingcertification.com/diversitycertification/.
