Using Videos For SEO

By: David Hobson

If you have been on the internet for any length of time, then it is certain that you have seen at least one video on YouTube or many other video sharing sites. If you have any video associated with your business like maybe testimonials or a short ad about your business then it is a good idea to start uploading your video to these video sharing sites and it will creep into the search engines as well as boost your views and rankings within the search engines.

There are several sites where you can post your videos and here are some of them:

1.) YouTube
2.) MetaCafe
3.) Yahoo!
4.) Google
5.) MySpace
6.) Break
7.) Daily Motion
8.) Blinkx
9.) Revver
10.) Veoh

When you actually do your submission, most of these sites offer some tools to go along with your video upload such as tagging, putting a great title on the video, describing the video’s content and adding other links to the video, for example if you have more than one video to upload, you can link all your videos to the others that will keep sending the viewer to view all of your videos. Also, you can enhance your video upload with a thumbnail pic and the best way of doing this is to make sure the thumbnail has people in it. Giving your viewers the option to comment on your videos is a bonus as well because they can give you feedback based on what they have viewed of your video so that if there is room for improvement, you will know right away, because people are very brutally honest on the internet.

There are lots of other video marketing tools to use, but this should give you a good start at being able to boost your business provided the video you have uploaded has great content, is informative and is exactly what your targeted audience is looking for.

Asking friends, family and previous customers or clients to visit these videos and leave feedback is not out of the question either. You could learn a lot about what it is you do that sets you apart from others as well as where you can improve. You can copy all of the links into an email and then just send out 1 email to all of these people inviting them to take a look at your new productions.
