7. Paste your feed url in the text field. Be sure “Show all recent posts from your blog.” is selected. It will be by default. You will then see how your feed will display. You may need to select “Save.” If you do not see the “save” button, you have successfully added the feed to your profile.

8. Verify installation by selecting “View profile” from the drop down nav under “Profile.” You should see your new WordPress blog widget displayed on your LinkedIn profile. To move the placement of the widget, select “edit profile” from the drop down nav and you will be able to select the widget to drag it higher or lower on your profile.

Once you’re successfully adding blogs to your LinkedIn profile, it’s time to think about where your blogs originate from…your website. It’s time to think about your website’s overall design and your website’s lead generation strategy. To learn more about your options and how to improve your web presence, contact Vital today.
