The available locations are extremely limited, with many important or populous towns and cities not covered, which is frustrating when running targeted connection campaigns.

The ability to target users based on demographic data such as location and job title/keywords is what makes LinkedIn so powerful, so we have broken down the list we found on Boolean Search Site by region (roughly) as we don’t think it has been updated since.
When trying to target those in locations not available on LinkedIn it is a case of working out the closest locations. This can lead to a significant overlap but there are limited workarounds, potential workarounds include using the location in the search term to capture locations in the ‘summary’ and ‘experience’ fields.
