LinkedIn Introduces Sections and Loses SEO Juice

LinkedIn is on an updating spree. The platform changed more in the last 3 months than in the past 3 years. I am frankly liking it.

Last addition was Sections.

After logging in I noted the following banner:

The most significant additions are Skills and Languages.

Nothing new in terms of Applications.

I also noted that the ‘My Website’ taxonomy has now changed to become ‘Personal Website’. ‘Personal Website’ does not show on your public profile.

Interesting to note how ‘My Website’ was the only link with ‘do-follow’ attribute (SEO value). No link now presents do-follow opportunities as of today, making requests such as this one quite irrelevant.
