As I create more-and-more How-To and other videos as a way of sharing what I’ve learned with others, I need to be thinking about how I can improve the saturation of my videos from an SEO perspective. This will help others more readily find my videos and, hopefully, pull in business where someone needs assistance with some aspect of their web presence. Search engines, like Google, are increasing their efforts to discover video content and a video sitemap will make it easier for them to discover your videos.
Even though I haven’t headed down the video sitemap path yet, I did want to at least share a short post by Joost de Valk entitled “Video SEO and WordPress“. One reference Joost shares is Creating a Video Sitemap, located on Google’s Webmaster Central, which is an overall great resource site.
As I dig deeper into the area of Video Sitemaps I’ll be certain to share.
