Great post Jeff. Just looked over your LinkedIn profile and there are few other things that should be improved before some recruitors will be able to spot your profile. For example when I search for lead or demand generation you are not on my first page results. Not even on the second or third. Your profile is not optimized for these keywords so less recruitors or hiring managers will find you on LinkedIn.
On the other hand endorsements do not have a high value in the recruitors eyes since they cannot provide accurate information regarding your expertise or knowledge in a particular field. Even more tha 100 people recognize that you have one skill or another, no one can know how skilled you are in lead generation for example. It is possible that you are kind of LinkedIn celebrity, or jiust you have a large network and you get more endorsements the the others. If you work for competition, and the competition is doing good on lead generation recruitors might get more interested in your skills.

From all the social sharing, this is one popular post. Thanks and please post your thoughts in the comments.
I also have a minor change to the Dan Green quote. His actual comment to me was
“In addition to the location challenge, you understand that typically my clients are looking for someone who has a successful recent track record as a full-time, permanent employee, preferably coming out of a direct competitor.”
