It's Sunday so I've got more time to review this article. Referencing the link you gave, "10 Ways to Demonstrate Your Credibility via Your LinkedIn Profile", there are some things I'm not aware of.
For example, what is the "Featured" section? I don't have it on my LinkedIn profile, and I don't even know how to add it.
Second question, I do have three recommendations from coworkers in the past, but they are a bit old. Does that matter? If it does matter, then I have a problem. Many of my colleagues in my current position are on LinkedIn, but they don't spend any time on LinkedIn. It will be hard to get any recommendations from people who visit LinkedIn at most once a year. How do you coax someone to add a recommendation for you if they really don't use the platform?
Oh, and what in heck is "Creator Mode" on LinkedIn?
