LinkedIn Share Button

If you publish content on a website or blog, encourage your readers to share this content on LinkedIn by adding the LinkedIn Share button to your site. This button is similar to the Facebook and Twitter buttons that are popular on so many blogs and can be a big help in generating more visibility and traffic.

To get your LinkedIn Share button, visit http://www.linkedin.com/publishers, shown in Figure 4.

Figure 4 Encourage your readers to share your content with their LinkedIn network.

The LinkedIn Share button is available in three different formats: vertical count (the number of shares displays above the button), horizontal count (the number of shares displays to the right of the button), and no count (button only with no numbers). Copy and paste the code on this page into your own site's HTML to install.

If you use WordPress, you can paste this code within the post loop of your single.php file. Because the single.php file varies by theme, you might need to experiment to find the right place. If you're not technically savvy, another WordPress option is to install the LinkedIn Share Button plugin.
