Linkedin Search Alerts & Saving Searches With Free Accounts

Creating the right search list on Linkedin takes a lot of time. That’s why it’s smart to save your search url. Plus, those search results often change as people get new jobs.  Let’s talk about how to save your Linkedin search and get weekly notifications for new results.

Where are Linkedin Saved Searches / Search Alerts found?

Saved searches (or Search Alerts – same thing) are located at the top right hand side of your screen. Don’t see the ability to save search? There are two search criteria required for you to save your Linkedin search (more on that in a moment). First, here’s what it looks like (see below).

How to name your Linkedin Saved Searches / Search Alerts

Your saved search is automatically named after the keywords you used in your search. In the example below the only keyword our search used was “analytics” – so our search was automatically named as that keyword.

Viewing/Locating your currently Saved Searches on Linkedin

Locating your existing Saved Searches on Linkedin is incredibly cumbersome right now. If you go to Linkedin search there’s no option anywhere to view your saved searches. Even if you do a people search.

So where are they? You must do a people search that includes a keyword. Once the search results appear you’ll see your Saved Searches.
