Many small business owners and sales professionals have realized the benefits of using LinkedIn to promote their services. Most of my clients who use WordPress have asked me to integrate their WordPress blog with their LinkedIn profile. So far I have found a couple of interesting tools that make this easy to do.
First of all Install the WordPress Application on LinkedIn. This will pull all your recent blog posts into your profile page on LinkedIn.
Second, download and install the GD LinkedIn Badge plugin for WordPress. Once it is active, add a widget to your blog’s sidebar. Make sure you configure your options and double check that the profile link is correct.
You may also want to change your public profile address from the default, which looks like http://www.linkedin.com/pub/6/5aa/117 to something more like http://www.linkedin.com/in/russellfair
