Skills (later Skills & Expertise) was added to your LinkedIn profile in 2011. You add Skills in your < Edit profile > dashboard by scrolling down to “Skills” and clicking on the < Edit > function.
Add keywords to the skills and expertise search box and determine if the suggested skill (or skills) that come up describe(s) your talents, then add.
Endorsements were added to the Skills section and made into the Skills & Expertise.
LinkedIn graciously given us back the ability to ‘Drag and Drop’ skills as well.
