Here is a clarification on something fellow recruiters have been worried about. This is as of this morning and anything can change at any time, of course.
If you search for LinkedIn profiles on Google or on Bing (EXAMPLE), you might see an incomplete profile for those members who are either your 3rd level connections or are out-of-your-network and a suggestion to upgrade, when you click on the search results in Google. Don't worry; nothing much has changed in terms of profile visibility. The only thing that has happened is this:
If you are logged into your account on LinkedIn it is now getting you straight to the person's profile, bypassing the “see full profile” button that used to be there.
So if you are logged in you will see less info and a suggestion to upgrade. Log out and you will see the complete public profile, as Google sees it.
LOG OUT of LinkedIn and you will see the public profile - with more information.
To speed up work you could use two different browsers and be logged-in in one, logged-out in another.
