How are LinkedIn Collaborative articles performing in terms of SEO?

On March 3rd, LinkedIn announced ‘Collaborative articles’, a content type published by LinkedIn in collaboration with artificial intelligence (AI) and LinkedIn users.

The new feature was marketed to bring forward the knowledge of LinkedIn users, so that they can increase their reach to a wider audience while showing their industry knowledge.

How does the Collaborative articles feature work?

Collaborative articles are created alongside AI and then edited by human specialists. This allows LinkedIn to scale its content efforts while providing benefits to their users, as well as helping them to show their expertise in their field.

How many articles have already been added?

In less than three weeks after the feature was announced, over 36,000 articles have been published at the content hub at the time of writing.

If you get invited to contribute to a collaborative article, it’s a good idea to contribute as this can help you show your expertise and will enable you to increase trust in yourself and your business.

According to Ahrefs (a well-known SEO platform), the advice section has already had over 10,000 organic visitors from search engines. As shown in the image below:
