Google Web Stories is a relatively new addition to the search engine giant’s arsenal, and it has already made a big impact. This innovative feature allows businesses to create eye-catching stories that showcase their articles, products, or services.
As you can imagine, this tool can be used in a variety of niches to great effect. In this article, we will take a look at some google web stories examples from various niches.
We will see how online businesses are using this tool to drive traffic and conversions, and learn some tips for creating successful google web stories of our own!
A brief introduction to Google Web Stories
As the internet has become more visual, the way we consume information has changed. People are now more likely to scroll through a feed of images than read a long article.
Google Web Stories is a new format that takes advantage of this trend by allowing publishers to create visual stories that are easy to consume on mobile devices.
Web Stories are similar to traditional articles, but they are made up of small sections of text and images that can be scrolled through quickly.
This makes them ideal for reading on the go, but the user always has the option to dive deeper when you provide a link to related content.
Google Web Stories is still in its early stages, but it has the potential to revolutionize the way we consume online content.
Where Can you Find Google Web Stories?
Web Stories appear on Google Discover on Android and iOS via the latest Google app.
They are displayed on a carousel near the top of the feed, but sometimes you have to scroll down to see it…
When I first started seeing Google Web Stories, the carousel only showed 4 Stories.
Now, I’m seeing up to 8 stories in the carousel, which tells me Google is expanding the feature. That’s good news as more and more people begin utilizing Google Web Stories for their online business.
Eye-catching examples of Google Web Stories in various niches
You may be wondering if Google Web Stories will work for your niche.
I contacted several of my fellow blogger and online content creators to see if they would want to share their own Web Stories.
The response was huge and I received a TON of submissions to include in this article. Unfortunately, way too many to include here, but I was thrilled to see everyone so excited and willing to share their Web Stories.
I’ll be honest and tell you I received way more examples in the food/recipe niche than any other niche.
So, I’m going to share some of those with you first. After that, we’ll take a look at examples from a variety of other niches.
