Google Groups helps bring together communities of people to interact and collaborate. Blog owners often like to use forums to engage their readers or customers. Adding a Google Group link to a website is easy and takes just a few minutes.
Create a Group
If you don't already have a Google Group, create one by visiting the Groups homepage and clicking on the "Create a group" button. When you create your group, edit the membership settings to allow anyone to join.
Create HTML Link
Create a basic HTML link to your group's homepage. A basic HTML link uses the <a> (anchor) tag. Use the following layout to create your basic link: <a HREF="LINK">http://groups.google.com/group/YOURGROUPNAME">LINK TEXT</a>.
The URL that goes inside the quotation marks in your link should be the same URL as the home page for your Group.
For example, you could replace "LINK TEXT" with "Join my Google Group!"
Add the Link to Your Site
Use a text editor or web editing software to insert the link into your web page. Make sure to copy the entire text of the HTML code and test the link to ensure it is working.
