Google Web Stories is a feature that allows you to create visually appealing and interactive content for the web. It is similar to traditional web articles but is designed to be more immersive and engaging, with a focus on visual storytelling.
In this tutorial, we are going to teach you how to enable and create web stories on your WordPress website.
Here are the detailed steps for creating Google Web Stories on WordPress:
Google Web Stories is currently in beta and is only available to a select number of publishers.
Install Web Stories Plugin:
Install the Web Stories plugin on your WordPress site. To do this, go to the “Plugins” section in your WordPress dashboard and click “Add New”. In the search field, type “Web Stories” and hit enter. The Web Stories plugin should appear as the top result. Click “Install Now” to begin the installation process.
Activate the Plugin:
Once the plugin is installed, click “Activate” to enable it on your site. You will now see a new “Web Stories” option in your WordPress dashboard.
Create Web Stories:
Click on “Web Stories” to create a new story. You will be taken to the Web Stories editor, the editor that allows you to create and format your story using a variety of tools and options.
Give your story a title and add a cover image. The cover image will be displayed at the top of your story and is a key part of the visual appeal of your story. Choose an image that is high-quality and visually appealing.
Select a layout for your story. You can choose between portrait (vertical) and landscape (horizontal) layouts, depending on the type of content you are creating and the format that works best for your audience.
Add pages to your story by clicking the “Add Page” button. Each page of your story can contain text, images, and videos. Use the formatting options in the editor to add and style your content. You can also add interactive elements, such as buttons and forms, to your pages.
Preview Web Stories:
Preview your story by clicking the “Preview” button. This will open your story in a new tab, allowing you to see how it looks and functions. Make any necessary changes by clicking the “Edit” button.
Publish the Web Stories:
When you are satisfied with your story, click the “Publish” button to make it live on your WordPress site. Your story will now be available for anyone to view and interact with on the web.
That’s it! You have successfully created a Google Web Story on your WordPress site. Remember to follow best practices for creating Web Stories, such as using high-quality images, keeping your pages concise and focused, and using interactive elements to engage your audience. With a little practice, you can create professional-quality Web Stories that will captivate and engage your audience.
