In this example, I am embedding a Sribd document to WordPress. Scribd looks better than an embedded Google Doc, and is another way for you to promote your publications, since others can search for documents using tags and other information you can include in your published Scribd document.
I created a tutorial on how to import a Google document to Scribd and then how to grab the embed code. Interesting thing is you do NOT have to make your Google Doc public (I thought you had to do this). Also–and this is very cool–if you update your Google doc, you can select the revision you want to use and Scribd will automatically update. (However, at this time, when I tried to use this feature, my Scribd document would not update with the revisions. So, I will need to do more research on this and revisit it again.)
