Using Google Drive for sharing PDFs on your website

You can then create a Shareable link which you can paste into your website page or article - the video shows you how!

Step 1: get the public URL of the folder. This might light like this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hmLTgTaqw4-_8Rf1hNlmkvY6WRfjCs3u . The last group characters is the folder ID: 1hmLTgTaqw4-_8Rf1hNlmkvY6WRfjCs3u

Step 2 use the following Iframe Code - paste into your website page (replace id=xxxxx with your folder ID)

<iframe src="https://drive.google.com/embeddedfolderview?id=xxxx"
width="100%" height="500" frameborder="0"></iframe>
