Add LinkedIn Share button to Website / Blog

To add LinkedIn share button to website or blog, point your browser to LinkedIn Publishers’ Page, grab the button code and paste it in your blog template where you want to make it appear.

You may also use the text-box asking for the URL to be shared which is completely optional. This option is useful when you want a only particular URL (eg. your blog or website URL) to be shared, not the posts or pages on which the button appear. Do not enter any URL, if you are going to put the button with your blog posts.

LinkedIn Share Button code

Below code is valid for all websites regardless of what platform they use. You just need to put this code in your site’s HTML, then save it and see the LinkedIn Share button working.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><script type="in/share" data-counter="right"></script>

You may modify data-counter value to top (for vertical counter), right (for right aligned counter) and none (for no counter).

Recommended for Advance users

If you want a more advance In share button, for example, making it appear on the index page of your posts (home page in most cases, carrying the list of posts), the code from LinkedIn Publishers’ Page will not work for this. The code is required to be modified a bit. Use the below code and modify it as explained below:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><script type="in/share" data-url="PERMALINK" data-counter="right"></script>
  • For WordPress users: Put <?php the_permalink(); > in place of PERMALINK.
  • For users: Replace data-url with expr:data-url and put <data:post.url /> in place of PERMALINK.
  • For Tumblr users: Put {Permalink} in place of PERMALINK.
