If you use Google Voice, you can embed it on your WordPress site using a widget so that visitors can call you directly from your page. Your Google account provides you with tools to create the widget, which contains a "Call" button that people click. Once clicked, Google Voice connects the caller to your Google number. WordPress provides you with a built-in "Widgets" feature that enables you to paste in your Google Voice widget code and display it where you want on your site.

Step 1

Log in to your Google Voice account, click the "Settings" button and then click "Settings" in the drop-down list.

Step 2

Click the "Call Widgets" link and then click the "Add a New Call Widget" option.
