LinkedIn profiles allow you to list up to three websites. Most other social media profiles (such as Facebook and Twitter) will also allow you to list your personal or professional websites. I would like to make a few suggestions.
First of all, make sure that you take advantage of this section. Remember to list links to your social media profiles, websites for books that you wrote or coauthored, your blog websites, and any websites that you built or helped to create. For those of you more familiar with education, writing, or editing, it might be helpful to think of this like a list of publications. Showcase your work!
Secondly, make sure that any website that you list is professional. Make sure that there is nothing unprofessional, embarrassing, or negative that comes up when someone clicks on your website. Check to see what others are posting on your site and where links from your site will take a potential employer. Update your website links every time that you change the site address. You don’t want a potential employer to click on your link and not get to your website!
Thirdly, you should list the same websites in the same order on every social media profile and resume that you create. This shows that you are credible and makes sure that potential employers can gain access to your work.
Lastly, you can customize the label that shows up for others who are looking at your profiles. On LinkedIn and other social media websites, there is a spot for your site label and address. For example, if you are posting a link to a website about a book that you wrote, then you can list the book title as the label and your book site as the address. You can decide to choose a label that is not as obvious. Be as creative as you would like, but make sure that the label is professional.
