Google Web Stories: A New Way of Sharing Your Story

Share your views with the world using the Web Stories format. It works like magic.
"Everyone has a story to tell. Everyone is a writer, some are written in the books and some are confined to hearts." - Savi Sharma
Yes, you are a writer! So what if you haven't thought of writing books or blog posts! Be sure you have many stories to share. They may be about your life, your hobbies or about people you've met.
Your stories may be inspiring, amusing or informative. There's a fabulous format to present them in, and it's called Web Stories.
Web Stories are like social media stories (fast-loading, visually engaging and mobile-focused).
An added advantage is that they are search engine-friendly and feature in a dedicated section on Google's 1st page. They can rank for highly competitive search terms.
Thus, by creating content in the Web Stories format, you can reap the benefits of more visibility and greater user engagement.
Create high-quality content and your Stories may rank on Google's first page, giving you a wider reach.
As these Stories are highly engaging, they succeed in holding user attention.
Apart from these attributes, what makes Web Stories stand out, is that they are replete with visuals and light on text, which makes them easy to create and equally easy to consume.
Web Stories are a relief in the world of information overload, making them a readers' favorite. Due to their ability to rank in search results, the story creator gets more online exposure.
So share your stories in the Web Stories format and enjoy a loyal following.
Wondering how? Well, Visual Stories is your one-stop solution. Visual Stories gives you a no-code solution to get Web Stories on your own website or start a new website with Web Stories as its content format.
Another way is to simply sign up with Visual Stories as an author, select a category of your choice and start creating Web Stories.
To create content in the Web Stories format, you will get access to the Visual Story Builder, a WYSIWYG Web Story creation tool and a media library of music and millions of images that can be added to your Stories.
You will also be able to upload your own images and videos in your Stories.
So decide what you wish to write about and share your Stories with the world. They could be your experiences, or they could be reviews of places, books, or movies.
They could be about hobbies and fun activities you engage in, or about memorable events in your life.
Whatever be the subject, the format is going to make a difference. Instead of writing long-form articles with the risk of getting lost among the millions of similar web pages, consider creating Web Stories.
There's less competition, and you get a wider reach and higher reader engagement.
Adopt Web Stories, a brand new way to share your story with the world.
