Using The Right Words & Customizations

It matters how you arrange your information on your LinkedIn profile.  You want to make sure you are using key words specific to your industry - that is most important.

A section often overlooked is the website link area.  Many people do not realize that they can customize how professionals and potential clients access their website, blog, and/or important links.

Yes -- We can change the words from "Blog," or "My website."  LinkedIn offers three spots for web links -- I recommend using them!

Customize Your Website Addresses On LinkedIn:

Link Words Wisely

You can change the word links at your discretion, at any time.  Though I encourage making wise word edits so you ensure your place in the LinkedIn search, and so you don't drive your contemporaries crazy with tons of notices that you have made changes to your LinkedIn profile.

Remember, you can lead people to exact web pages, your Facebook Page, or simply your website.  Where do you want them to go?

Using words you want to be searchable for is the real key.


You'll want to take a look at what others in your industry are doing.  Then choose words that will place you ahead of them in LinkedIn search.
