They all were using one important thing – and although I was aware of it, I never paid heed to it.

I didn’t care to change it. But when I changed it finally, I saw a drastic positive change in my profile views.

People started viewing it more and gradually everything became good. 

What is that one important thing? – Customized short public profile URL.
