Two words: LinkedIn URL.

In this article, we will see how to customize your LinkedIn URL, to stand out from the crowd. And maximize your professional online presence.

With 5 examples of powerful and unusual URLs.

What is the LinkedIn URL?

The LinkedIn URL is the unique web address of your LinkedIn profile.

This public address is generated automatically when creating the profile. It uniquely identifies you and provides public access to your online profile.

The structure is always the same:

  2. A customizable part

But why change your LinkedIn URL. Is the game really worth it?

Change your LinkedIn URL to stand out from the crowd

Changing your URL simply allows you to stand out, and this in three different ways.

  1. Elegance
  2. Unique identity
  3. SEO ranking

Elegance of LinkedIn URL

First of all, modifying your URL allows you to show yourself in a more beautiful and elegant light. It reinforces the aesthetic character of your LinkedIn profile page.

For example: remove the incomprehensible character string at the end of the link.

The second LinkedIn link is simpler, more understandable, shorter.

In a word, elegant. It allows you to maximize the impact of your LinkedIn account, and make it memorable.

Unique identity

Does it really make you stand out from the crowd? If everyone does it, is there still any point?

We relied for you on a large source of data from 346771 LinkedIn profiles.

And this is what comes out:

  2. 22% have modified URL profiles

It's the usual 80-20 rule that we find. An ocean of professional conformity, a small island of striking individualities.

Stand out from the crowd.

SEO ranking

Finally beyond the identity aspect, the addition of keywords in your LinkedIn profile URL helps you stand out in search engines.

On Google, if you are looking for a profile associated with a profession, the profile with the keyword in the URL will come up first.

5+ outstanding LinkedIn URL examples

We will now see 5+ best LinkedIn URL examples that, for me, stand out from the others.

Let's go.

  1. The elegance of power
  2. The sales guru
  3. The company man
  4. The expert
  5. The one-word cool kiddo
  6. The smart one
  7. The Nobody [Bonus]
  8. The Back to the past [Bonus]

1. The elegance of power

The first is elegance of power: the LinkedIn URL of woman or man of power, with a certain cachet.

This is notably the custom LinkedIn URL style of:

  1. Bill Gates, owner of Microsoft
  2. Larry Fink, CEO de Blackrock
  3. Emmanuel Macron, president of the French nation 🇫🇷

We always find the same formula: the first and last name, without a hyphen. And in North America, if your first name is a diminutive, your real first name. Here Laurence.


2. The sales guru

Second, the sales guru.

Here is Guillaume Moubeche, the creator of lemlist. The world's first SaaS cold outreach solution generates 20 million ARR in 2023, after 5 years of creation.

Guillaume here promotes the movement of which he is the spokesperson: profit led growth.

This movement defends the creation of value through the creation of profit, without the intermediary of VC, accused of pushing towards harmful hypergrowth.

He also had refused a fundraising of 30 million euros in 2021.

He says it loud and clear.

3. The company man

Our third boy, the company man.

JB Jezequel is the founder o fEvaboot. This is a successful SaaS solution that allows you to automatically export your contacts from Sales Navigator to a CSV file.

He put his company name in his URL.

He promotes his professional career and his high growth business.

4. The expert

Fourth choice, the expert.

You need a salesperson? This is the woman you need. She is ultra competent in her field and makes it clear to you..

5. The one-word cool kiddo

The one-word kiddo has a talent: surprise you and leave you with a fixed idea in mind.

It will make your career a juicy success. Funny and strong, it leaves a definitely memorable souvenir.

6. The smart one

Little blockchain genius, the smart one is using a quick and short nickname.

It breaks the codes of professional formalism of the large Microsoft network, and takes up those of the Internet of forums.


the smart one linkedin url example - image5.png

7. The nobody [Bonus]

The nobody writes a 2000+ word article on the benefits of changing your LinkedIn URL.

But as far as he is concerned, we will come back later. The default URL is always displayed, with two hyphens and a long, incomprehensible string of characters.

Do as I say, not as I do.

8. The back to the past [Bonus]

The back to the past changed its URL.

But it was a long time ago. How time flies.
