WordPress’ Web Stories plugin will help you navigate, create, edit, and publish stories without breaking a sweat
First of all, here’s quick recap on Google Web Stories in case you missed our recent article:
Web Stories are essentially bite-sized, highly engaging pieces of visual content.
They’re extremely customizable with pictures, videos, text, and sound. Very creator-oriented and not ad–heavy. Stories that follow the guidelines and recommendations can be featured on a lot of different places on across Google ecosystem. This can attract significant traffic if done right, and give story publishers enormous potential for monetization.
To sum it up, the WordPress plugin facilitates Web Stories. Without it, you would need coding experience and knowledge of the AMP framework just to publish a single story. The plugin, on the other hand, makes it as easy as a click-and-drag process.
