HOW TO: EMBED YOUR Google TOUR ON YOUR WEBSITE!
You've made a fantastic decision for your business and created a Google Street View | Trusted Tour. But I hear you ask, "how do I put this amazing, fantastic new tour on my website, for all to see?"
We are here to help!
Putting your tour on your website is a piece of cake. You can choose where your visitors start your tour, and the dimensions you'd like your tour to be shown in. Most websites require an 'iFrame' - a special piece of code that pulls your tour across from Google, onto a webpage.
First off - your Google corresponder from Mint Design would have sent you a link with an embedding code to put on your website in the form of an iframe. If you'd like to change the starting point of your embedded tour, follow these steps.
Head to your email inbox and locate your go-live email. If you can't find it, search for 'lauren@' in your email search box.
Click on the link that leads you to your album of online images on Google - it will be the first link in your go-live email.
Click on the image you'd like to be embedded.
Feel free to have a grand old time exploring your tour and admiring the photography. Once you've found your position in the tour that you want people to start at, locate the black box in the top left corner of your screen.
Click on the icon in this box that looks like three little dots, and select 'Share and Embed Image.'
A small share/embed window will pop up. Click on ‘Embed Image’. Click on the drop down and select ‘Large’. If you are familiar with your website backend, feel free to select 'Custom' and change the dimensions to your desired size.
Select all the code (the stuff starting with “<iframe…..”) and copy it.
You now have your iframe! You can make as many of these as you like, and the code won't break if you choose to make more. Simply place your iframe into the corresponding area in your backend, and voila! Your tour is now displayed in all of it's beauty!
