Search engines are now embedding videos in the SERPs and it's fast becoming a necessity to optimize videos. Consider these three tactics.
I can speak for a majority of people who work in the digital arena that television is a dying trend and soon to be superseded by online videos in the near future. I don't watch nor own a television so I was happy to learn that this year's Olympics was accessible through YouTube. It is definitely more convenient for me to get Olympics updates all day long.
Today's top brands are becoming digital savvy and realizing the importance of moving their TVC to YouTube brand channel.
Now that search engines are embedding videos in the SERPs, optimizing videos is something that is fast becoming a necessity. If you want to make sure your videos are showing up in the organic listings you need to start optimizing your videos now.
While YouTube is the second largest engine in the world, it is the most popular video platform for video engagement. Even though brands are uploading their videos on YouTube, they are missing out on additional traffic and video views without proper SEO tactics in place.
I'll be sharing with you a couple of tactics you can apply for your online video optimization strategies.
Create Good-Quality Videos
Start With Your SEO Basics
Encourage Engagement and Share Your Videos
Begin with the basics and optimize your videos to increase your views and traffic in the natural search engine listings.
Don't forget to access YouTube Analytics to analyze your metrics and understand how to make better videos. If you're investing money to create videos, you should spend the time to make a quality-rich video, which is being optimized to ensure that users are able to find your video online!
