Early in the development of this course we offered a LinkedIn Badge which we actually made a design with:

Unfortunately, we just realized that you can only add either a certificate or a badge on your LinkedIn profile. So, we're sticking with just the certificate to show off your achievement, at least for now. 🙁

Step 1: Download your certificate.

If you passed the Final Assessment and send us the screenshot of your score, we will send your Certificate of Completion, usually on the next day.

Step 2: Go to LinkedIn and Upload the Certificate

Step 2.1: Go to your profile

Go to your LinkedIn profile. Click the "Me" menu which is located on the upper-right corner of your screen. 

Then, click "View Profile".

Step 2.2: Go to the Licenses & certifications section

Once you're on your profile, scroll down to the Licenses & certifications section. Then click the plus icon to add another certificate.

Step 2.3: Fill in the required details.

Step 2.3.1: Name

For the Name, just enter "Z2SH: The Complete SEO Training Course". Then, just add either "Basic" or "Advanced", depending on the course you took. The course version can be seen on your certificate. 

"Z2SH" means Zero To SEO Hero.

Step 2.3.2: Issuing Organization

For the Issuing Organization, just search for SEO Training Philippines. We have a company profile in LinkedIn so make sure to select that.

Tick the "This credential does not expired button".

Step 2.3.3: Issue Date

For the Issue Date, just enter the date you received the certificate in your email.

Step 2.3.4: Credential ID

For the Credential ID, take a look at the certificate's URL:

Notice the string after COC? That's your Credential ID. This is a randomly generated number so each Certificate of Completion is unique.

Copy and paste this string to the Credential ID section.

Step 2.3.5: Credential URL

Just copy and paste the entire URL for your Credential URL.

Don't forget to click Save.

Step 3: Done!

Congratulations, your certificate can now be viewed on your LinkedIn Profile.

This can greatly increase your chances of getting contacted by recruitment agents or companies themselves.
