Attract New Audience

Now that you’ve added a link to your TikTok bio, you can expect an influx of traffic to its source. If you did everything right but still don’t see the option to add a link, the TikTok version in your region may be late to update. The developers are adding this feature gradually, so some may not yet be able to use it. That may seem unfair but stay patient and check your profile Settings again in a few days. Hopefully, the desired feature will be there.
