X-Ray Toolbox for Searching LinkedIn.

A Compendium of LinkedIn X-Ray Search Shortcuts.
Using Google Search to interrogate LinkedIn's database is a powerful tool for businesses and recruiters. Here I have collected a series of custom search engines to help LinkedIn Users make the most of this resource, without having to know much about the in-and-outs of google search syntax and all in one place. If there is a particular or specific type of search you would like to see here, I will endeavour to add something suitable.

Search LinkedIn Profiles. 
 Examples:
"gary sharpe" - find profile lists containing the exact name phrase gary sharpe.
gary * sharpe - find profile lists containing the name phrase gary sharpe allowing for middle names and initials.
