Social media platforms like Instagram, YouTube and TikTok are more important than ever and have huge potential for your website. Your business’s social feeds are the latest and trendiest way to build trust today.

How Feed Widgets help your business

  1. Videos and images build trust with website visitors,
  2. they increase dwell time on the page (so visitors spend more time browsing through your site),
  3. thereby reducing bounce rate
  4. and improving SEO. Google will also crawl your site more frequently, which helps your search ranking!

With Instagram feed widgets, you have the option to showcase Instagram photos on your webpage effortlessly, with a wide range of customization options. 

Tailor your Instagram feed widget to match your website, and grab the attention of your users and visitors & keep them on your website for longer than ever before.

The best Feed Widget & best place to display

The most popular layout so far is the Slider – it is used by over 1500+ businesses worldwide.

We recommend that you embed the feed widget in the homepage of your site because when the widget’s content is updated daily, the content of the homepage will be updated as well.

This way Google will crawl your website more often and your SEO will improve significantly compared to your competitors.

    I always get the message ” You have no feed source (platform) yet.” and than ” The access token has expired. In order to continue to update your posts, please reset the access by pressing the resolve button.” I resolve the connection to facebook for instagram and it works until I want to config the feed.
