Some ideas for web links to add

  • Your website contact page
  • Your website home page
  • Your appointment booking system
  • Free download or guide
  • Mailing list subscription

Remember you can also add 3 web links under 'Contact info'

The blue link to 'Contact Info' at the top of your profile also allows you to add up to three web links.

These do not have the immediacy of the new live web link feature, but are still useful to include, and to provide different types of information, products or services. They are also useful for search engine visibility as they are incoming links from a high-reputation website.
