Manual Video Setup for Websites
Keyword research is vital, and the keyword must go into your video descriptions. Because search engine crawlers can understand speech, the keyword must also be spoken. Longer videos add value, and many SEOs recommend 5-10-minute videos. Longer videos also help to boost dwell time, and that helps your site to rank higher.
When properly installed and designed into a website, video enhances UX. The key is matching keywords to content so that viewers engage with the content for longer periods. That process helps both on-page SEO and off-page SEO as quality videos are a positive way to attract backlinks.
Note: UX is a measurement of content value as it matches with keyword and keyword phrasing. If the match between content and keywords is poor, the viewer bounces. Google and other search engines reward good UX and demote poor UX. It is for those reasons that keyword research is essential during content planning, mapping, and creation. The other side of this coin is that videos that do not play correctly, or cause view angst also cause an increase in bounce rates Viewers move onto another video when there are problems with controls, function, etc. That is another reason why professional design for website video is essential. The reward for doing this well is better ranking which leads to better lead generation and more opportunities to move viewers down the buyer’s journey.
On-page and Off-page Video SEO
Off-page SEO for video focuses on backlinks or embedding. Embedding occurs when someone values your content enough to add it to their site, blog, or content. That person can also be you, if you add your videos to your business blog. The negative is that poorly installed or set up video applications cause viewers to bounce and that can hurt website ranking.
If you are using video as a means to boost website ranking, then the standard off-page SEO also applies from the website side of things. Website design and setup are even more critical when video is a standalone feature rather than part of written content. SEO’s are using video for both website ranking and as visual content.
On-page SEO for Video is more straightforward. It is all about the relationship between the content and the audience. It involves matching keyword to content so that viewers are not disappointed in the content. Remember that during the buyerâ€™s journey, viewers are looking to solve a problem. Because keywords lead them to content the keywords must match the content and is purpose. The success of the video is seen in the measurements of the analytics.
