How to Link Directly to Your LinkedIn Recommendations

My good friend Lori Ruff posted an article today about getting a direct link to your LinkedIn recommendations.

Technically, she’s correct — there’s no way to make a link directly to your LinkedIn recommendations, i.e., a link that you could share with other people.

However, there’s an app for that, sort of… 🙂

[li_recommendations width=”720″ length=”500″ interval=”5000″]

Assuming you have a WordPress blog, check out the WP LinkedIn plugin.

The plugin allows you to add recommendations on any post or page with a simple shortcode, a la:

[li_recommendations width=”480″ length=”200″ interval=”4000″]

NOTE: Your mileage may vary, but it was cutting off a bit on the right edge of the text. I fixed that by adding this on the line before the shortcode (you could, of course, add it to your stylesheet if you prefer, but for those who want to just copy/paste, here you go…):

<style>.linkedin blockquote .recommendation {width:95%;}</style>
[li_recommendations width=”480″ length=”200″ interval=”4000″]

LinkedInRecommendationsWidgetSo, just add that code to your “About” page on your blog profile, and you’re good to go.

It also includes a widget (see right) and the option to display your LinkedIn card on all your post, pages, etc.

Not exactly a direct link to your recommendations, but certainly a step in the right direction. With a little tweaking, it could probably be turned into a list, rather than the widget. Any coders up for the challenge? 🙂

Similarly, for other applications, something could be developed using the LinkedIn API, which allows you direct access to profile fields, including recommendations.

But for now, I hope you’ll find this a useful tool.
