Tip 3 – Don’t forget about the meta data for your videos.
Similar to written content for your website, video content should have appropriately completed meta data in order to get the most out of this content. What this means is that, for each video posted on your website, it’s crucial to compete at least the following:
- Title tags – While these tags should conform to the necessary character limits (with these limits usually being around 70 characters or so), they should also be written to clearly explain the content of the video.
- Meta descriptions – Meta descriptions offer more of an opportunity to describe a video’s content. These descriptions can also be written with a little market-ese, as they will usually be what appears in search engine results (and, therefore, can entice or turn off users from clicking on your video content).
- Keyword fields – This field should include the appropriate keywords or keyword phrases pertaining to a given video, and it’s usually a good idea to limit this to handful of phrases (at most).
Tip 4 – Consider posting transcriptions of the video content.
Transcribing the content of a video can be a relatively easy and very powerful way to optimize that video, particularly if the video content is not ranking well in search engines. With this tip for video SEO, there are a few ways to implement it, including (but by no means limited to) by:
- Putting the transcript immediately below the video content – The text can even be hidden by a “Read the Transcript for this Video” button below the posted video.
- Writing up the transcript as a blog piece – With this option, you can link the blog back to the video, creating another way for users to get to your video content.
