If it is a personal website, you can choose your Facebook or Twitter account. Surely, the website of the company you are working for can represent your company website.
You can even choose to put a link to your portfolio if you have one and if you don’t then now is the time to make one as it is your best chance to let everyone know what you bring to the table.

Can’t Add a Website to LinkedIn Profile

You want to add a website link that has already been added to the LinkedIn profile. You can only add a website only once to the LinkedIn profile.

So if you have multiple websites, select the top 3 most important that you want to promote for your LinkedIn connections.
Other links you can add to your LinkedIn profile
Besides adding websites to your LinkedIn profile, you can also add the following information to the Contact Info section of your LinkedIn profile:
- email address
- phone number
- instant messaging options.
So even if you don’t have a website, you can make sure that people who want to contact you via LinkedIn will be able to do so.
So as a best practices, besides adding your websites to the LinkedIn profile, also add these contact information options to your LinkedIn profile as well.
