Table of Contents

Video SEO is like finding the best fishing spots in a huge ocean. It helps people find your videos online. We’re going to show you seven simple strategies to get your videos noticed by more people.

1. Use Words with Your Videos

Adding words to your videos makes them more friendly for search engines and people who can’t hear well or are watching without sound. Put what’s being said in your videos as text on the page and use subtitles.

2. Make Your Video’s Title and Description Interesting

Make sure your video’s title, description, and tags are interesting and describe what your video is about. These help viewers decide to watch your video and help search engines know what your video is about.

3. Tell Search Engines About Your Video

Use schema markup. This is a special code that tells search engines the details about your videos. This can make your videos stand out more in search results.

4. Help Search Engines Find All Your Videos

Create a video sitemap. Think of it as a map that guides search engines through all the videos on your website. This helps your videos be found and indexed faster.

5. Get Others to Share Your Videos

Encourage people to put your videos on their websites and link back to you. This can help your website and your videos become more popular with search engines.

6. Use Social Media

Even though likes and shares on social media don’t directly affect how high you rank in search results, they do help more people find and watch your videos. Share your videos on places like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

7. Focus on Keeping Viewers Interested

The most important thing for video SEO is to keep viewers watching and engaged. Make sure your videos are the right length, interesting from the start, and encourage viewers to interact with your content.

Quick Recap

Making great videos that people can find easily means taking a few extra steps. But don’t worry, with these seven simple strategies, your videos can reach more viewers beyond just YouTube. Remember, the online world is big, and making your videos easy to find and enjoy can really help you stand out.
