If you have video content on your site & you’re not actively exposing it to the Google, you might find your video investment is not doing all it can for you.
Exposing your videos to the major search engines is an effective, almost immediate way to boost your SEO efforts. That’s because all of the search engines place a higher value on pages with video content, and grant video results a guaranteed slot at the top of search results. Your video content is an opportunity to “cut to the head of the line” of the search results because usually the amount of video results competing for your keywords is only a fraction of what exists in total.
Why you should actively submit your video content
While it’s true Google crawls your site on a regular basis, that doesn’t mean your video content is being picked up in an efficient manner. You need to do your part to stay ahead.
How to test if your video content is picked up by Google
To determine how you’re site’s doing today, you can easily assess your current video indexing status in Google Video by typing: “site:MySiteName.com” (replace with your site’s URL) into the search box (see the example in the image at the top of this post). If the number of results you receive is less than the number of videos on your site, you have your answer – some of your content is not being picked up by the search engine.
