The "Profile out of network" error message appears when you try to scrape data from a LinkedIn profile that's outside of your network. This means that you don't have a direct connection with the profile, and you're not connected to any of their connections either.
LinkedIn sets some limitations on the visibility of profiles that are outside of your network, which may prevent you from accessing some data. LinkedIn has a full explanation about this here!
If you have no contacts and no network, you will not be able to scrape information. The more contacts you have, the higher the probability is of LinkedIn letting you connect with someone else.
To avoid getting this error, you can try building your network by adding valuable connections. The more contacts you have, the higher the probability of LinkedIn letting you connect with someone else. We recommend using our LinkedIn Auto Connect Phantom to automate your connection requests on LinkedIn and help you grow your professional network.
You can also consider getting a LinkedIn Premium account, as Sales Navigator allows you to search and view data from people who are beyond your first-degree connections. With Sales Navigator, you can see data from second-degree connections and even third-degree connections, provided that the third-degree connections are not out of your network range.
