Have You Personalized Your LinkedIn Profile URL? Why you should change it.

When people search for you on Google they are going to be searching for your

name. With the LinkedIn PUBLIC profile the URL is your first name-last name

and followed by 11 characters after your name.

I tried putting that on my business card and due to the length it wouldn’t fit on my card. But the most important

reason to claim your name on LinkedIn is for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) both on LinkedIn but more importantly

on Google.

Make sure to utilize the new URL on your profile with your business card, on your email signature, on any

correspondence, and make sure it is on your updated resume. So claim your name it is important to search.
