Tips and tricks on how to use the service effectively
Once you’ve written a few stories, you’ll probably notice that they’re ranked by date of publication. You can increase the likelihood of your articles appearing at the top of search results by choosing a less competitive category (if you haven’t already). This can be done by going back to the “publish” page on your dashboard and updating the category you’ve chosen.
- You can also promote your article if you want to buy targeted website traffic. This will bring it higher up in search results, but at a price of course, about $0.25 per click if I remember correctly.
- You can customize the title of your article to make it more appealing
- It’s best to keep your stories relatively short (less than 1,000 words)
- Keep in mind that web stories is not a place for you to promote affiliate products; it’s about sharing your knowledge or personal expertise
- You can also share short videos with this service, but it will always appear in photo format when shared on Google search engine
- When using this feature, you are allowing Google to place ads next to your content for any company that wants to buy space in your article. This doesn’t affect your content in any way and you still get paid if somebody clicks on the ad (the price is set by Google, not you)
- To tweak what you’ve written, just click on “edit” next to the article and it will take you back to where we started: the dashboard! There is a green button that says “publish” so click on that and you’re all set!
This was a short but sweet article about Google Web Stories. It’s a great way to get your content out there, which can help increase traffic to your website or blog as well as help you build credibility as an expert in your field (if that is indeed what you are).
