When I search for a name on Google the linkedin profile does come often as a first option. Which is great. But I hate that when I click on that link, linkedin only shows me a short summary of the profile even when I am logged in to linkedin.
The Googlebot I am sure sees the entire profile of the user in all its’ glory because that information is indexed and retrieved by Google for it to show the right result.
So it is just Linkedin that decides to show a page of partial information to the logged in user making them click an extra button, possibly upgrade them to a premium plan or whatever it is their super smart product managers think is worthy.
It is my peeve as a user of linkedin though and I hope they provide information to me who is a user in the fastest way and in a way that the Googlebot sees.
