Shally announced 15 More countries have been added to LinkedIn Zip Code Radius search! Previously Shally broke the news that LinkedIn had expanded the “Zip Code Radius” search feature beyond just the USA to include postal codes in the UK and Canada.
Today he has some great news for International recruiters… 15 more countries have been added! That’s right! You can now search for a specific zip code in the following countries:

This is very exciting stuff… and you heard it from Shally first!
“We’ve been limited in our ability to search for users geographically on LinkedIn. Internationally all we could do was select a country and search “country wide.” In the Unitied States we were limited to a 50 mile radius, or what I like to call the ‘metropolitan area.’ This was somewhat limiting when searching in spread-out areas like the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, and Atlanta.”

I have some great news for researchers! George Seiters hinted to this in my two minute video with him, but hereâ€™s the full scoop: with the new Pro Plus LinkedIn account Iâ€™ve been testing you can now find anyone inside LinkedIn â€“ and you are no longer limited by they size of your network. They are calling this â€œAll-Searchâ€ and it means that when you do a search for a particular job title or company name you find all the contacts that exist inside LinkedIn, even if you have only a handful of connections.
