Writers and Bloggers, A New Way to Feature Your Best Work on LinkedIn

SMS Text

LinkedIn has as a fairly new “section” called “Publications” in user profiles. The publications section lets you add links to articles you have written on various publications. We all know the power of LinkedIn and to be able to showcase your work on such a powerful business networking site is fantastic.

How to set up LinkedIn Publications on your profile:

You can set up your profile in 4 simple steps.

Login and scroll past the initial bio area. Right above “Summary” you will see “New – Add Sections to reflect…”. Click on “Add Sections”.

A pop up will appear; choose “Publications”. 


Fill in the form (title, publication, date, link, summary and you can add another author).

Example of Result

Respect and trust are earned when people see you have been published on respected websites. LinkedIn is there to showcase your education, knowledge and experience. I would go today and take advantage of the Publications area. It is quick and easy to set up. I also recommend you choose your best work because you never know who might skim your profile.

    Yeah but I believe they are redirecting these links to prevent any link juice from escaping

    That sounds really useful, but publications doesn’t show for me! The list goes: Projects, Patents, test Scores,. No Publications! How odd!
