How to add Google AdWords certification to LinkedIn?
Adding Google AdWords certification to your LinkedIn is pretty much the same as adding other certifications. First, you need to log into your LinkedIn account, then click on ‘Me’ and go to the ‘View Profile section.
If you’ve already added some certifications to your LinkedIn, scroll your profile to reach the ‘Licenses & Certifications’ section.

Just type Google AdWords specifications in the required boxes. If you’re not sure about the exact information, just log into your skill shop account, click on your profile icon on the right corner, then click on “My Profile” and then you can see your certifications.
If your certification doesn’t have an expiration date, check the option that says “This credential doesn’t expire”, but if it has an issue and expiration date, which Google AdWords usually have, uncheck it.
You can click and open the certification in your skill shop account for the credential ID.
You will see a completion ID next to the certificate’s expiration date; just copy the number into the so-called box on LinkedIn.
For the credential URL, you need to copy the address of your certification in the box. Click and save it and add it to the licenses and certifications section.

LinkedIn- the route to having a successful job
LinkedIn was launched in 2003; it was initially a social network for recruiters to post job opportunities and for job seekers to put their resumes online and to connect these two.
But after some time, LinkedIn became the best business network out there. Not only has it helped people to find jobs or suitable employees, but it also helped to meet other users with shared business interests.
It is a place that helps you to grow your business and your brand altogether.
As mentioned above, LinkedIn is a job-oriented network in which knowing what kind of job you are looking for plays a vital role.
Also, you need a valuable profile to prove that you are worthy enough for an ideal job or to convince recruiters to massage you.
Having different certifications, especially the ones about marketing can help you a lot in this process.
