If you take a look over at the right sidebar, you will see an invitation to connect on LinkedIn.

It’s not just your regular invitation, because it actually goes to the page to connect with me on LinkedIn.

If I had just put the link to my LinkedIn profile, it would have taken you three more clicks to actually get to the invitation page.

But with the aid of this article from Stacy Zapar I made the link direct to my invitation page.

Give it a whirl yourself if you want people to connect with you on LinkedIn.
