How To Customize Your LinkedIn URL in 6 Easy Steps AKA How To Boost Your LinkedIn SEO AKA Lifehacks By Miki Szeles


5 min read

Have you ever noticed that ugly hexadecimal number at the end of your LinkedIn URL?

I have good news for you:

You can get rid of it completely.

And you can even write anything there. For example, you can write your job title in it, which might aid your SEO as search engines consider the URL a significant source of information.

So how can you do that?

  1. Click the Me icon at the top of your LinkedIn profile! LinkedIn Click Me Button.PNG
  2. Click the View Profile button! LinkedIn Click View Profile Button.PNG
  3. Click Edit public profile & URL link! LinkedIn Edit Public Profile And URL Button. PNG
  4. Click on the pencil icon right after your URL! LinkedIn Edit Your Custom URL Pencil Button. PNG
  5. Change your URL to whatever you like! I advise you to consider SEO, so to boost your search results, you should put all your keywords into it.
  6. Click the Save button to save your new unique URL. LinkedIn Edit Your Custom URL Save Button. PNG
+1: You do not have to change your pointers to your LinkedIn profile after you change your URL as LinkedIn keeps all the previous URLs alive.

I am building a friendly, supportive, knowledgeable community around Selenideium. I did not dare to contribute to any open source project for a very long time. I was afraid that the developer community would take my code and myself into parts.

This is why I guarantee that Selenideium Element Inspector is the perfect project to start your open-source contribution; I will also make sure it will stay like that. No matter how genius you are, if you do not respect the community members, this project is not for you.

  • Minnie: Fair enough.
