booleanstrings Boolean 8 Comments

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!

  1. Find LinkedIn members by job location. (This is not possible on LinkedIn, even in keywords). site:linkedin.com “work location * san francisco bay area”
  2. “I accept direct messages and business inquiries by anyone on LinkedIn for free, even if we’re not connected.”
  3. People recommended by Donna site:linkedIn.com/in “Click here to view Donna Svei, Executive Resume Writer’s profile”
  4. Companies past and present site:linkedin.com/in “ibm graphic”; only past – site:linkedin.com/in “ibm graphic” -intitle:ibm
  5. Schools – went to Princeton site:linkedin.com/in “princeton graphic” -intitle:princeton
  6. Group members site:linkedin.com/in “sourcing summit graphic”
  7. Certifications site:linkedin.com/in “Google AdWords Search certification graphic”
