LinkedIn: Post Blog Articles as Status Updates and Link to Relevant Articles


It goes without saying that to drive traffic to your blog from any social network, your blog posts need to be shared with your network.

  • Manually post a link to a particular blog post in order to pull an image and control the messaging.
  • Don’t be afraid to repurpose your blog posts as status updates from time to time (see image below).
  • Post during high-traffic periods (lunchtime and afternoons).
  • Edit your comments to engage your connections.

It’s also acceptable to post your articles in LinkedIn Groups, but make sure it’s information that will add value to the group, and always include a question or ask for feedback.

Additionally you can point to relevant articles on your blog when participating in group discussions, answering questions in LinkedIn Answers and posting comments on the updates of your connections.
