Hack Linkedin Algorithm Using Engagement Pods

Getting thousands of impressions on your Linkedin posts can help you generate tons of inbounds leads. Linkedin engagement pods can help you with that.

How does Linkedin Algorithm work?

When you publish something on Linkedin, the algorithm will first make it appear in the feed of your first degree connections.

If they interact with, Linkedin will show your post to 2nd degree connections (the connections of your connections)

That is why it is key to have likes and comment from your 1st degree connections in the first hours of your publication.

How engagement pods can help you hack linkedin algorithm?

When you publish a post and enter the link into an engagement pod, the members of the pods will start to automatically likes your posts.

Using tools like Linkboost can help you increase your post impression by adding some likes during the first hours after publication.

You don’t need to send a message to all your friends asking to like the post.

Simply follow these 3 rules:

  1. Limit the number of reactions to 20% of total forecasted engagement
  2. Add 2 – 4 minutes interval between actions
  3. Make sure all the members of the pod are 1rst degree connections

Indeed, if linkedin detects that you get many likes from 3rd degree connections in the first hours, they will detect you are using an engagement pod and will not push your post.

To solve this problem, you can either:

  • create your own pod and invite your 1rst degree connection
  • join a pod and invite the members in your network

Linkboost is a good tool because it has an option to this:

connect with linkedin pod members

If all the members of the pod are 1rst degree connections, there is no way linkedin can detect that the engagement is “fake”.

Plus, there is social validation effect involved.

People prefer to like posts when there are already a bunch of likes and comments on it.

Basically, the more you get engagement you get on your post, the more likely you are to get more likes and comment.

Hack Linkedin Algorithm With The “Comment To Get” Technique

There is a well-known technique to maximize the engagement on your post.

The “Comment To Get” Technique.

This technique produced excellent results for me:

  • 50K impressions

Here is a screenshot from a post where I asked people to comment to get access to the Evaboot private beta.

The technique is really simple:

  1. Write a post teasing a product or a content
  2. Ask people to comment to get the access
  3. Reply to every comment

When Linkedin will see your post getting a ton of comments, they will push more and more people feeds.
