Integrate Your WordPress Blog’s RSS Feed Into Your LinkedIn Profile March 25, 2009

Awhile back I wrote a post about how LinkedIn is the most neglected of all social networks. Let’s face it, LinkedIn just isn’t as much fun as say, Facebook or Twitter.  This tip will make it appear like you’re active on your LinkedIn account when really all you’ve done is setup your WordPress blog’s RSS feed to display on your profile.

Connect your virtual lives with the WordPress LinkedIn Application. With the WordPress App, you can sync your WordPress blog posts with your LinkedIn profile, keeping everyone you know in the know. Once added, you can filter your posts with a special LinkedIn tag and even display your personal WordPress Gravatar (global avatar). Updates are automatically sent to your network for instant notifications and gratification.

This should take you less than 5 minutes to complete, but it will most certainly leave a lasting impact on your business and its marketability.

To start, you will need to install the WordPress LinkedIn Application.  Click on the button that reads, “Add application”.

Next, type in your blog’s URL.  Example below.

That’s it…you’re done!  Now click on the “View My Profile” tab and you’ll see how the application has now integrated your WordPress blog feed into your LinkedIn profile.
