Google Hangout is a great communication tool, it allows for screen sharing when using the group video chat and that’s one remarkable feature when compared with most video chat services. To deploy this service extensively in order to grow your business may require creating a reusable hangout link.
Nobody likes to remain static, likewise every establishment. This guide will show you how to create a reusable Hangout link on WordPress using the PrettyLink plugin extension to boost your business online presence. However one thing is paramount among others, you must have an active Google account. Don’t have an account? create one quickly and continue with the guide below.
For users who already have a WordPress site, this guide will be straightforward. However, if you don’t have a site on WordPress consider signing up for one in order to create a reusable hangout link for your live video group chat and webinar.
Having noted the above, let’s quickly move on to the steps in creating a reusable hangout link.
Step 1. While on your web browser, navigate around and add the Hangout extension to your browser. For optimum performance, I recommend using the Chrome browser.
Step 2. Log in to your WordPress dashboard and add the PrettyLink Lite plugin to your site plugins.
Step 3. Open a new tab on your web browser and start a Hangout session by clicking on the Hangout icon.
Step 4. Now, copy the link from the Hangout page and head to your WordPress dashboard.
Step 5. Open the PrettyLink plugin and paste the link in the space tagged ‘Target URL’
Step 6. In the next field tagged ‘Pretty Link’, add ‘hangout’ to the link already generated by the plugin.
Step 7. Scroll to the bottom and make sure you click on the box that reads ‘No follow’ this link. This will signal Google not to index this link on your site.
Now save the settings and copy the permanent reusable hangout link. You can share this link and use it to grow your business.
