How to Embed a Google Form in WordPress Post or Page

What is Google Form?

Forms are crucial and a must-have tool for running a business online. Google Forms is one of the Google apps suites that help you to quickly create a free online form for any purpose. It is easy to operate and packed with robust features. The form can also be shared across the internet by link, email or even embed on the website. Every response can automatically record to Google Spreadsheet.

Different between Google Form and others WordPress Form Plugins

WordPress has a bunch of form builder plugins available in their plugin repository. Most of the plugins can directly record the form’s response to WordPress admin area, which is convenient. However, there will be a time that you need to gather response from different channels such as Facebook, Instagram, and even direct link. The WordPress form plugin wouldn’t be the best option to gather data from multiple channels. That’s when Google Form comes in.
