Creating a Vanity URL for your LinkedIn Profile

This blog post was updated on March 17, 2015 to show the most current way to customize your LinkedIn URL.

One of the things I do on a LinkedIn Makeover is set a vanity URL for my clients. By customizing your Profile URL, you can include it in your email signature, add it to your business card, link to it from your Website or your other Social Media profiles, the list goes on and on.

Here’s how you do it!

LinkedIn automatically assigns your profile a default Web address. The default address is quite ugly! A jumble of letters and numbers that is not easy to remember or market. But that’s okay! LinkedIn gives you the ability to change this URL to something easy to remember and easy to promote!

Setting Your LinkedIn Public URL

Click the “Edit” link to the left of Your Public Profile URL.
Your Public Profile appears.
In the column to the right of your Public Profile is a box entitled, “Your Public Profile URL”
Click the link, “Customize your Public Profile URL.”
In the field provided, enter your new URL. I suggest using your name.
Click the “Set Custom URL” button.
