Why does LinkedIn tell me there is a website in my invitation while there isn’t any?

by Jan & Bert

This week just a small LinkedIn tip, but one that has caused many people lots of frustration.

When you send out an invitation, you sometimes receive the notification: “You can’t use websites (URL’s)”.

When you then look at your message, you don’t see any website.

So, what causes this remark?

The fact that there is no space behind a point. For example: Hello Dan, nice to have met you again.Do you remember the time when …

There is no space between "again." and "Do" and hence LinkedIn thinks it is a website.

So just mind the normal punctuation and everything will be fine.

To your success !
