Final words

Make sure you copy the link correctly and don’t leave spaces. By doing these common mistakes, your file in Google Drive will not be linked to your blog post, and your blog readers will be discouraged to find out that the link you told them to click is functionless. Therefore, in order to keep your blog readers satisfied, you have to be careful and always test your link to prove yourself.
