LinkTree, when it first came out, seemed to only really be used by Instagram influencers. But, that’s changed as people have seen the power of having all of your social media links in one place. Okay, but convenience aside, we’re not trying to sell this platform or anything…the goal is to take advantage of it. So, let’s dive into how we can Xray LinkTree to hunt down our real prize: developers.
So, what is LinkTree? Well, instead of sharing multiple URLs in your social media bio or email signature, Linktree allows you to create a single, customized link that redirects visitors to a page containing all your important links. This not only makes your online presence look more professional but also simplifies the user experience.
Yep, you guessed it! A surprising amount of developers have adopted LinkTree as the defacto way to share their online presence. What does this mean? Well, it means we can find a treasure trove of developers if we can narrow down our Google search enough.
Dean starts with a simple boolean phrase to xray linktree:
site:linktr.ee/ -jobs -job developer
You can add any degree of complexity to this to suit your needs. Feel free to get wild with your boolean strings! The more narrow the search, the less likely these developers have been bothered by someone else already.
There’s a lot you can do with LinkTree, so get to sourcing! Let us know what other professions seem to be on this platform.
Happy hunting and may the source be with you.
