LinkedIn makes about $90 million each quarter, or about 23% of total revenue, from showing ads to its users. These ads appear on most pages on the site, and include both IAB standard ads (such as a 300×250 rectangle) as well as custom text ads (shown to the right).

For the three months ended September 30, LinkedIn reported about 12.2 billion page views on its site from about 184 million unique visitors each month. This tells us a couple of things about LinkedIn; the first is that the each unique visitor views about 22 pages a month, indicating high user engagement. (Johnston 2015)
