Why You Should Embed Google Slides in WordPress

Sharing presentations with your website’s visitors hasn’t always been simple. You’ve either needed to upload them to a third-party website like SlideShare or give a download link on your website to enable visitors to view them. Fortunately, WordPress empowers you to embed Google Slides presentations directly within your website.

Sharing your presentation through third-party services could prompt to a poor user experience. By adding Google Slides to your WordPress site you can increase incoming traffic, boost conversion rates, and get more page views. Best of all, it’s best for your site’s SEO.

If more incoming traffic isn’t reason enough to embed Google Slides in WordPress, maybe these additional benefits will change your opinion:

It boosts conversion rates

Those of you who are utilizing presentations to create engaging landing pages are definitely missing out on conversions. Embedding slides in WordPress will empower you to retain visitors by effectively lowering your website’s bounce rate.

It’s better for SEO

Presentation slides are stacked with keywords and phrases that associate to your niche. Since your slides will be added to your site, you’ll be able to receive the SEO benefits they offer.

You’ll get more page views

You can successfully get more page views by creating a presentation that has a single slide on every page – and more page views lead to a better positioning in Google’s search algorithm.
