LinkedIn Interest Targeting: 2021 Edition

LinkedIn rolled out interest targeting to advertisers in 2019. It allows advertisers to reach people “based on the topics members read, comment on, like, follow or share while on LinkedIn – plus their professional searches on Bing. LinkedIn also uses modeling to infer a member’s interests from a member’s job title and description.”

Since its introduction in 2019, LinkedIn has added some additional targeting options, as well as Product Interests, which are software options. This is a very useful targeting option for B2B Software as a Service (SaaS) advertisers!

We laid out all of the initial targeting options here.

Below is a list of the targeting options. The bolded options are new since our last post in 2019.
