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.

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