To remove a link (whether you uploaded it or not...) follow these steps, which worked for me :

1. in top left hand corner of your profile / LI home page click ' edit profile'.
2. in EDIT mode scroll down to the image of the link you do not want, and click on the small blue pencil icon in lower right corner of the image
3. in the grey box that appears go to the end and click on the blue text 'remove this media' (you can at this stage move the link to a different job position, or to your summary or edit the descriptions, though I could not change the image which seemed to be auto filled)
4. confirm in the new dialogue box 'yes I want to remove...'
5. repeat to remove others (you may need to click 'done editing' and start again)

    Thank you, Daniel Rendell. Simple instructions and worked perfectly. I think the eye is tricked by where they've placed the phrase, 'remove this media.'

    Thanks Daniel. Clear instructions. Task done.

    Thanks Daniel. Very helpful. Agree with Matthew O'Brien that the location of the 'remove this media' option is not intuitive

    Thanks for this Daniel. I tried it didn't work in Chrome browser but was fine in IE for some reason.

      I don't want to remove the position. I want to remove the links to the "el cheapo" resume "services" the links take people to!

        I've got a similar issue where a link for a past company I worked for it's leads to an id0tic "Clinical and Cnsulting Psychology Associates" company and only heavens knows why that's being associated with the company I listed.

        Not only that's not the company corresponding to the one listed and the link on the Linked-in landing page redirects traffic to something other than the url of site listed, but if that wasn't enough, to show it's a bogus click trap spam, one needs only to look at the misspelled headline... that alone should be enough proof since no respectable company wouldn't, at the very least, care enough to correct spelling errors in their company's page.

        Once again looks like spammers fine a way to infiltrate Linked-in's systems. That isn't deposing too well for Linked-in... I already stopped using it once at the time of the password and private info security breach, but these issues are symptoms of potentially dangerous security holes that are not being taken care of.

          I also have a link to KPN and one for Associa on two positions in my profile that I did not add. I do not want to delete the position these links are on, I just want those links OFF my profile as I have never been affiliated with them. How can I best accomplish that WITHOUT deleting the position some spammer attached their link to?

            Well folks, here I was just playing around, trying to get rid of those links on the work experience part of my profile when I discovered all I had to do was make a slight modification to the name of the company I worked for in order to make the 'company link' disappear from that entry on my profile. I still don't understand how those links got there in the first place. They, I and the companies I've worked for are NOT affiliated in ANY WAY. Hope LinkedIn takes notice of this obvious spam attack. The KPN company page on LinkedIn is written in GERMAN and ARABIC. BTW, I AM for hire! I have a FIERCE analytical mind and an even MORE FIERCE penchant for detail. See my profile for further details and to send me an invitation to connect.

            Thanks Carol M. Seemayer, I had the same problem and your solution took care of if.

            I'm so happy to hear that Christopher. I'm glad I was able to help you.

            Many thanks, Carol, it worked perfectly!

            Hi Carol

            Had a similar problem, a link to a company that plans couples' honeymoons no less. Tried your technique and successfully removed it. Thanks, Tim

            I have the same issue - random links / logos added that are nothing to do with the companies I worked for. LinkedIn - why are you messing up with people's profiles?

              Phil - Look down the thread a little bit for my comments on how I got rid of the mysterious Logos. Good luck and I hope you get rid of yours too.
              Phil Stubbs Apr 16 '13 at 07:31 AM
              It didn't work Carol, I think my issue is also caused by the companies I did work for, not being in existence so LinkedIn just picks a 'terrible' match!

              Still doesn't work - if I change the name anymore it won't refer to the company I actually worked for!

                did you ever get a solution? I do not want company links in my work experience description. It not only becomes an AD for the company but it entices people to click off my profile and go to the company site!!
                Phil Stubbs Apr 16 '13 at 07:30 AM
                No Renee, I didn't get a proper solution. I tried changing the name slightly but no difference and the problem I have is the links are to companies that I didn't work for. The ones I did, no longer exist in their old format so it just adds confusion if people click on the links.

                Not sure LinkedIn really care.

                    Very strange... adjacent to the experience entry for Lockheed Martin I have an icon/link for Northrop Grumman... I tried Mr. Rendell's instructions but there is no blue pencil associated with the icon/link. The only other icon/link that shows up is for the US Navy; happily it is next to my experience entry for that peiod.
