It is good to direct traffic towards your website, optimising your business website to generate potential leads. However, LinkedIn content links automatically will have “no-follow” attribute, which means that they are not going to pass page ranks to your website, only traffic.

Claim vanity URL - this is the easiest thing to do to improve your SEO.
When your have activated your public profile, you should be able to see URL under your picture. If you have PUV in the middle of the URL, this means you have not claimed it.

Claiming your vanity URL will increase the chances of your profile appearing higher in the search results when searching for your name online.
Try to descriptive phrases for your employment positions. For example, if you are using something like ‘Manager’, you can make it clearer with inclusion of keywords, such as Bookkeeper, BAS Agent, and Specialist in Warehouse Stock Control and Import. Use keyword rich job titles, there is no need to embellish your accomplishments, just be descriptive.
