There is really no need to have a LinkedIn profile URL that looks like this:

LinkedIn brought in the ability to customise your LinkedIn profile URL about 10 years ago. In order to get a nice, easy to read (and copy) URL like this simply follow these instructions.

  1. Login to your LinkedIn profile
  2. Click the arrow under me and view profile
  3. On the top right, click on Edit public profile and URL
  4. Click on the pen beside Edit your custom URL  and beside your current URL
  5. Type in your name – you can’t use spaces or symbols.  If your name has been used in all its forms try putting your surname first, adding middle name – or even spelling it backwards.  Avoid using your date of birth for security reasons.
  6. Click “Save”

More  details on the LinkedIn help page.

That’s how easy it is to customise your LinkedIn profile URL.
