Peeking on people's profile is one of the common activities that people do engage in while on LinkedIn, especially when looking for business opportunity and of course, you don't want to connect with someone who won't add value to you. 

LinkedIn has just added a new feature under the Who's Viewed Your Profile drop down tab termed "How You Rank." This new feature gives you an insight into your ranking. It helps you identify how much people are viewing your profile compared with your connection and your colleagues. 

 This was revealed in LinkedIn's blog post, "Who’s Viewed Your Profile is more than just a glimpse of who looked at your profile, it’s a rich treasure chest filled with customized insights designed to help you build your professional brand, generate new opportunities, and manage your network.Today we’re introducing a new feature as part of Who’s Viewed Your Profile to help you see where you stack up relative to those in your network. With the new “How You Rank” tool, you can now see where you stack up to others in your network with profile views (this feature is coming to mobile)"

The post highlights benefits of the new feature: "Take a look at the top profiles in your network to gain inspiration for changes you can make to your own profile, or content you can share to increase views to your profile and drive opportunities for advancement.
