Adding LinkedIn Button To Blogger or Wordpress or any other Blog

Today i was trying to add a "LinkedIn" to my linked in profile button on Blogger.But it was not so easy.

You can directly embed the HTML and get the linked in image link if you want but for me it didn't workde.Then i came to know that the linked in people themselves provide custom buttons that you can add anywhere either to your blog or your websites.

But these custom button service is rather hidden ie not visible at the first sight.So i thought that it would be helpful if i share this post with you all.

Below i have given detailed description with images on how to add this linked in button to your blog.

Steps:-

  1. Just go to http://www.linkedin.com/

2.Sign into your profile

    3.Goto public profile and click the edit button next to your public profile
                      4.Click on promote your profile add custom buttons link

                          5. Now you can see a lot of buttons and their respective code which you can directly paste into your blog.

                          Umm ... ok .... I must be "web challenged". I have a Wordpress blog and the Design page has an RSS widget that I can edit. I did a cut & paste into the RSS widget box but it did not take. I keep getting an error message that says "ERROR: could not find an RSS or Atom feed at that URL". Am I doing something wrong, maybe in the wrong place? Frankly, I'm very new at all this.

                          I need some help (I'm new at this). I have a Wordpress blog. I did the cut & paste in the RSS widget (which can be edited) but it would not "take". I keep getting an error message that RSS or Atom did not recognoze the feed. What am I doing wrong?
