Examples of web stories
Here are a few web stories made for my food blog.
Here are examples of web stories linking to an article, and that are informative.
Where are web stories seen?
Web stories are shown on the Google app:
- In discover feature
- Regular google search
- Google image search.
Web stories can drive a lot of traffic to your site from the google discover feature. There they can, for example, appear in the carousel or as single cards. In google discover, web stories are shown in the United States, India, and Brazil.
In google search, web stories can be seen as a grid view. Search results are shown in the US. In image search, the story can be seen as a card with a web story icon on it.
If you are targeting a US audience with your blog, web stories are a great way to boost your brand awareness and traffic to your site. It does not matter if you yourself live somewhere else.
Want to work with me? My process is simple:
- We start with a video meeting or emails, so we know if we are a match.
- Choose the content package that fits your needs. You can test the service without a longer commitment with a starter package.
- The Starter package comes with 1-3 custom-made templates for your brand.
- If you are happy with the result, we will make a longer contract for services. This could, for example, be 10 web stories a month.
- You can choose to publish the web stories yourself or let me manage the publishing and trends.
- Communication and task are easy to manage on platforms like Trello or Asana. A shared google drive file works also.
I will create a unique, custom-made web story template for your blog that's optimized for search engines and mobile devices, so you can be sure that your content will look great and reach a wider audience.
PS: It is great if you have the plugin installed and you have tested that it is possible to publish stories. Sometimes other plugins can interfere with the stories plugin, and it can be a hassle to investigate where the fault is.
10 web stories a month.

Starting at $390
20 web stories a month. Divided into 5 published a week.

All packages include a custom-made template. Stories have usually 8-15 slides each depending on your original blog post.
For example: A recipe with 8 steps could include a first image, ingredients, steps on making and tips on sides. Slide amount: 11-15
The prices above are starter prices. If you need a custom-made layout for every story/ images, or graphics the price is higher.
I send you the invoice an you can pay by bank transfer( for example a wise account). Paypal is also an option. First invoice is paid in advance. Longer commitment after the work is done with a 14 day pay time.
Do you get massive views from web stories? No, not from every single one. They are a hit-or-miss thing. Web stories need to be SEO-optimized.
It might take some time of regular posting of web-stories before they start to drive traffic. Google likes consistency.
It is good to have web story creation as a routine when creating a new post. Multiple stories can be created from one post as long as they have a different URL.
For example seasonal content: make a new web story every year for a specific post you have.
How to earn money from Web stories
Web stories drive traffic to your site, so if you are for example in Mediavine or Adthrive, you get additional ad money from the extra pageviews. Web stories have a feature to add links to the pages, so you can choose to link to one recipe or multiple different pages on your blog.
Ad money from Google ad sense
You can use Adsense to use ads on your web stories. This income is though little so it does not pay for a VA to create them for you. In my opinion, the tips below are more efficient and user-oriented.
Money with affiliate links
Web-stories are a way to boost affiliate income. You can link directly to an affiliate link, but even better is to link to your affiliate post. People rarely make buying decisions merely based on a web-story. They need to read more about the subject, for example, a product review.
Example: You are an affiliate for a blender brand. You have some review posts on blenders:
- Best blenders for smoothies.
- Best blenders for frozen berries
- Best blender to make nice cream
- Best blenders for making soups
- Best blender for nut butters
To support these articles you have created recipes for smoothies, frozen berries, nice creams, soups, and nut butters.
To boost traffic for these articles I can create web stories with the focus on affiliate income. I put link to the actual recipe but also to your affiliate post.
Drive traffic to your e-mail signups
Money is on the e-mail list. Especially if you sell courses or have an e-book to sell. Web stories are a great way to give useful information, introduce yourself and invite them to sign up for your freebie.
Add a story for your sponsored post for an additional fee.
Web stories are created with the WordPress plugin. There are several other services and programs to create web stories, but I have found the WordPress plugin to be best, since you get the photos from the media library directly to the stories, without needing to upload them first to an app.
Yes, you should create own property in google analytics for the web stories. There you can see the total visits to the stories. The visits to your site from the stories are shown in your regular analytics. Currently the web story plugin supports only Universal analytics, but they will update the plugin before July 23.
Videos are a great way to engage readers. If you have the bandwidth on your server go for it. I do not use videos in my own blogs web stories, since the video clips need modifying and it takes more time.
