Hello , in my previous posts i had covered 5 File hosting/cloud storage sites which had hot linking support . Also i had covered the methods to get direct links of files stored on Dropbox and copy.com too , Now sharing the same to get Hotlinks from Google drive files or Google Drive Direct Link. Hot Linking or direct linking is very useful while sharing links through Mail / Blogs as its simply enable a single click to start downloading thus saving the users time and efforts to download a file while at the same time saving from those annoying ads.
Prerequisites – Google Drive sharable URL
Method to get Google Drive Share URL for generating Direct Links
Sites to get Direct link/URL from Google Drive
We have ourselves created a Tool – CloudLinker which will do the same – Click here to Use Online Cloud Linker – Direct Download Link / Permalink Generator.
Site # 1 – Google Drive Direct Link Generator
This is probably the most efficient and easy to use amongst all the Google drive Permalink sites, as guessed from the Screenshot its quite easy to use too , We just have to enter the Sharing URL and click on the “Create Direct Link” button, and that’s it ! The direct URL will be generated in the Output Link which we can copy and share as a Direct Download Link .
Site # 2 – gdURL.com
This is yet another site to generate Google Drive direct links – and is quite easy to use , we just have to enter the Google Drive Sharing URL and click on Generate Permalink button and the Permalinks will be generated. Also this site contains advanced features such as
Site # 3 – gdriveurl.com
gdriveurl.com is one more site which performs the generation of google drive direct links, it also includes extra features which are useful such as mydrive but for the annoying ads they degrade the overall experience of the site, and hence ranked third in this article .
It also supports multiple Google Drive permalinks generation,a handy site overall 🙂
Note – Sometimes incase of Big files / Google Drive is unable to scan the file for viruses before download and may display a download page,but this is rare and occurs for big files download only. I hope you found this article useful, Thank you for reading and please do like and share this post so that all can enjoy these awesome features 🙂
This doesn’t work anymore. Seems to be out of date. There doesn’t seem to be a way to do this with google drive aymore.
Are you sure? I test these out and they work. Because dropbox ending their public folder service, I think I will have to host my images this way.
