You could take the URL that appears
when you click on the NAME showing
at the top of your GROUP PAGE and
see if it works while doing the steps
elsewhere in posts to answer this question.

    My question is a bit different: Can I add a Linked In icon on my email signature to take people directly to my group's Linked In page (not my personal page)?

      @Erik - As long as your use of the LinkedIn logo is consistent with LinkedIn Branding Guidelines and you are able to create the custom HTML for the signature, there should be no problem.

      For information on LinkedIn Branding Guidelines go to the following:

        When I add a linkedin badge on my email signature it doesn't link to my full profile. How do I do this?
        I used this link:http://au.linkedin.com/in/timcdenning

          @Tim - You are correct! The "public profile" link is for your LinkedIn "public profile", which is not the same thing as your full LinkedIn profile. There is absolutely *no* way for you to create a link to your full profile that will work for individuals not a part of your full LinkedIn network, which consists of your 1st level, 2nd level, and 3rd level connections plus fellow group members.

          What LinkedIn members see when attempting to view a LinkedIn member profile is based on the combination of their connection level with the member profile being viewed and the member's privacy settings, which would include what the member has allowed for viewing on their "public profile".

          In other words, your only option is to share the LinkedIn "public profile" link.

            For Yahoo mail signature: Copy the badge photo and paste it in your signature box, then highlight the picture and hyperlink it to your page.

            Hi Aram,
            I tried your suggestion (several times in case I did something wrong). I could get the badge picture in my signature, but I could not get the hyperlink to work when I sent myself an e-mail to test it. Any other suggestions, Aram? Anyone? Thanks.
            Tashia L. Ayala Jan 31 at 06:04 PM
            In my attempt to try the suggestion I am having the same issue also.

            Expanding on what Aram said...for yahoomail
            1. choose the code against the badge you want to use. save the code to notepad or something you will need this in step 6 below.
            2. right click on the badge and choose the copy image option
            3. Go to your yahoomail settings --> writing email --> signature
            4. Make sure that the signature is set to 'Show a rich text signature'
            5. In the text box below, right click and choose paste. This will copy the badge image into the signature block.
            6. Select and copy the code (from step 1)
            7. Coming back to yahoo settings, now highlight the badge image
            8. Click on the 'paper clip' icon. This will open a dialog box prompting a URL link for the highlighted badge image.
            9. paste the code
            10. Save the signature.

            you are on your way to proudly display the badge in yahoo mail.

            If you're able to download the application "Signiture" it give you the ability to add social networking icons, and upload an image, such as your company logo. Twitter: @gopinkhosting - I'll add a cropped image to my profile so that you can see a visual.

              Can anyone help me with the same problem but for Gmail?
              I did it in Outlook but since my company recently changed email platform to Gmail I am unable to do the same. Please help

              P.S. I want to add my company's Linkedin page in the signature

                @Debanjali - Surely there is a "Help" link for Gmail. Simply look up "email signature".
                Richard Lincoln Oct 31 '13 at 04:50 PM
                For Gmail you will need to save the .jpg of the button you want to use and then upload it to a photo storage site like Photobucket. Then you copy the "Direct" code from Photobucket, go to your Gmail signature and click the "insert image" button and paste the Photobucket code. When the image shows in your signature, select the image by left clicking and dragging across the image. Then select the "Link" button and insert your public profile link in there. It's easier than it sounds, good luck!

                Thank u all. I was able to do it

                  Hi Jay,
                  I had the same problem but worked it out for myself. I right clicked on the image of the button on the left. "Save as" to my computer. Then I copied the link that was displayed under my name that said: au.linkedin.com/pub/amy-zeegers/70/602/533. I went to my email signature, inserted the picture, selected the picture then selected the icon for inserting a hyperlink. Pasted the link into the address field and hit save. You can then test your signature by right clicking on the icon. If you are still having problems. Let me know and I can email you some screen dumps. Good Luck :)
