So linkedin has changed the layout and formatting of their search results screen.
Here's my profile from the search results screen. I beleive you have to have an upgraded account to see the new version.

Notice the Network Information!!! Now you don't have to put how many connections you have in your profile name field for people to see how well connected you are. SWEET!
It also has a "In common" field which doesn't show up on my profile for obvious reasons but it looks like this:
In Common: 2183 shared connections 2 shared groups
And also notice the Groups information is listed which is also nice. I like this cause when I'm trolling for new members to invite to my CPD Group on Linkedin I'd like to see right away if we have similiar groups. Using the whole birds of a feather theory it's nice to have that info readily at hand.
You also have some other sorting options
Relationship + Recommendations
And you can customize what information you want to see.
