Tips for Optimising Videos for SEO:

Quality Video Content is King!

Long, boring videos just don’t cut it anymore, the internet is inundated with content. The focus must be on creating short engaging yet informative content that is tailored to your audience’s interests and needs. Creative content is key to capturing viewers’ attention and maximising impact.

Gather SEO Data

Before delving into SEO optimisation for video, gather relevant data regarding your target audience, keywords, and competitors. This foundational step will not only inform your strategy and ensure alignment with your objectives but also pave the way for creating relevant future video content.

Choose the Right Hosting Platform
Select a suitable video hosting platform like YouTube, Vimeo, Twitch, Brightcove and moreto ensure smooth playback and prevent site loading delays. Consider factors like user engagement, search visibility, and platform analytics to make an informed choice.

Create Eye-Catching Thumbnails

Design attention-grabbing cover images that accurately represent your video’s content and entice viewers to click. Pay attention to details like the play button and duration indicator to optimise thumbnail appearance.

Compelling Titles and Descriptions

Write concise yet compelling titles and descriptions that accurately describe your video’s content and capture viewers’ interest. Keep titles under 55 characters and descriptions under 200 characters to avoid truncation in search results.

Include Transcripts and Subtitles

Enhance user accessibility and provide valuable content for search engines by including video transcripts and subtitles. This not only improves video SEO but also makes your content more accessible to a wider audience.

Optimise Hosting Page for SEO

Ensure the web page hosting your video is well-optimised for search engines by incorporating relevant keywords, meta tags, and descriptive content. Prioritise the positioned video if multiple videos are present on the same page.

Explore Other Channels
Utilise various channels such as your social media platforms, email and newsletters to promote your video and increase traffic and views. Additionally, internally link your content to suggested videos to maintain viewer engagement and encourage them to explore more of your content.
