1> Professional Photo - Take a good professional picture taken by a photographer or find professional picture that having great head shot.

2>Your Name - Should only contain your name, avoid adding any additional titles or credentials. keep it clean

3>Connection - Make sure to connect less than 501 people, the reason behind this is LinkedIn will show how many connection you have until you reach 500. (My profile not reached 500 so it will be showing the connection amount)

4>Contact Info - Provide all necessary contact details, remember in LinkedIn everyone those who are connected with you doesn't  like to message, when they find your profile it's good to give multiple option to contact you. as I have given provide email address that is advisable.

5>Website name - On my profile I didn't  put my website name, instead I used a attractive word plus keyword that people search for in my profession.

6>Profile URL - Remember  when customizing LinkedIn profile aim to have your name without anything else. If you have more common name (Kannan, Shankar, Silva) then you might need to resort to a slight modification.
