Have you added Websites to Your LinkedIn Profile?

Have you added Websites to Your LinkedIn Profile?

Here is how you do it.

You can display up to 3 website links on your profile, and they can be added from the Edit Profile page. To add a website:

Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
Click Edit Contact Info near the bottom right of the profile overview section. The profile overview section has your photo in it.
Click the “Edit” icon next to Websites.
Choose the type of website from the dropdown list.
Note: If you choose “Other” from the list, you can type in your own website title.

Copy and paste your website address into the URL field.
Click Save.
The websites you add will be displayed in the Contact Info section of your profile.

So now you know how to set them up, why do you want to do it?
1) If you are in business having your company website will generate leads for your business
2) If you are in search it will give you an edge in the recruiting game because ONLY 7% of profiles on LinkedIn have a personal website for recruiters to view.
3) If you are in Social media it will give you an additional voice to share your knowledge

Make sure when you set up your websites to edit each one. By edit I mean to choose “OTHER” instead of LinkedIn’s default setting of company website, personal website, my blog, RSS feed, or portfolio. The reason you want to do this is for SEO (Search Engine Optimization). It helps your profile standout among all the other profiles on LinkedIn with a higher ranking with Google search.
