I was even recognized by Linkedin for having one of the top 5% most view profiles on linkedin in 2012. Yet as far as I know I’ve only gotten a handful of clients here.

These days, great content has more influence on how discoverable you are online. For example, try doing searches on Google, Yahoo, and Bing for the term “romantic restaurant New York”.
