12 Valuable Tips for Video SEO Beginners

12 Valuable Tips for Video SEO Beginners | Internet And Social Media | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on Search Engine Watch:

"If you aren't optimizing your videos to match what people are searching, your videos are likely to get lost and not reach their intended audience. Without reaching their intended audience, they serve no purpose.

 

Use the following 12 valuable tips to get your video to reach the first page of Google and YouTube, but most importantly build visibility to a large niche audience that is interested in what you have to offer.

 

1. Content Quality Check:
Ensure your videos are relevant, informative, and rich with content. Don't waste time producing videos that have nothing to do with your brand or service.

2. Title:
Capture the potential viewer's attention with a catchy title that contains related key phrases that are relevant to your brand or service.

3. Tags:
Optimize your video with important key phrases or keywords. Don't use complicated words or terminology that may not be common to the average person.

4. Description:
Optimize your video's description with relevant keywords and include a keyword-rich description of your video to allow search engines to index it and rank it higher, and for users to better understand your video before viewing.

5. Links:
Use video as a portal to other content on your site. Upload a couple of videos to portals like YouTube and Vimeo, and consider providing links back to related content and other relevant videos on your site.

6. Transcripts:
Provide transcripts of your videos. Good old HTML content is still a favorite with search engines.

7. Length:
Keep your video at five minutes or less. The average amount of time a user spends on a YouTube video is around 1 minute 30 seconds.
If you have video content that is of long duration, consider breaking it up into smaller pieces and tagging each accordingly, to be more appealing to the viewer.

8. Video Sitemaps:
Submit a video sitemap to Google to make sure that the search engine spiders can find your video content and index it accordingly. This is the easiest way for search engines to find your video content.

9. Branding:
As video is a great way to generate brand awareness with prospects, take advantage of this opportunity to incorporate your brand and logos into your videos.

10. Embedding Options:
Help your video go viral. Allow other users access to the coding that will allow them to embed your video on their website or blog. This can help gain valuable back links and shares that will boost your rankings in search engines.

11. Syndication:
Submit your video to RSS feeds and syndicate your videos to drive exposure across various online platforms and to optimize your videos even more.

12. Share, Share, Share!
Get on your social networks, look through your email contacts, write on your blogs, and get the hype going..."

How do I know that all of this was real? : The dark side of being a digital stranger in an online learning environment – Part 1 | Peter Bryant | Internet And Social Media | Scoop.it

I have been debating the idea of the digital stranger for a quite a while, both on this blog and in other online learning contexts. Previously I had defined the digital stranger as;

‘Digital strangers are people we interact with, people we are inspired by, people we understand (even a little) about their views and their position in a specific network, but know very little about. We can still learn from and with them. We can create and share. We can innovate and solve problems. We can increase awareness and affect change. We can engage, entertain and provide comfort or inspiration.’

How To Convert Prezi Presentations To YouTube Videos

How To Convert Prezi Presentations To YouTube Videos | Internet And Social Media | Scoop.it

Anyone who has used the Prezi platform would know that creating a Prezi and uploading it to Prezi.com is easy enough, however when it comes to converting it to a YouTube video, there seems to be no native method of doing so.

 

While you can convert PowerPoint to video formats using a native PowerPoint feature, the same cannot be said for the Prezi application.

 

However, you can convert Prezi to YouTube by using a workaround.

Vocabulary.com ✎ A Whole Lot of Questions, a Whole Lot of Learning

Vocabulary.com ✎ A Whole Lot of Questions, a Whole Lot of Learning | Internet And Social Media | Scoop.it

 

WHAT IS VOCABULARY.COM?

 

Vocabulary.com is the easiest, most intelligent way to improve your vocabulary. It combines an adaptive learning system (The Challenge) with the world’s fastest dictionary (The Dictionary) so that you can more quickly and more efficiently learn words.

 

 

WHY VOCABULARY.COM?

 

We teach you useful words.


We don’t waste your time. We start by looking at books, periodicals, and other material that cumulatively contain over 1.6 billion words. From this corpus, we pull out the most essential English vocabulary words, the words that you need to succeed in an academic or business environment. This list serves as the basis for our learning platform.

 

We teach you only the words that you have trouble with.


Vocabulary.com uses a proprietary technology that we call Adaptive Vocabulary Instruction or AVI. Unlike traditional learning systems, we don’t rely on a series of time-consuming and boring assessments. Instead, everything you do on the site adds to our AVI model. It’s like you have a personal trainer in the room, monitoring your work and suggesting new words and exercises to challenge you on your level. Because of this, you don’t waste your time learning words that are too easy or too hard.

 

We don’t let you forget.


Finally, we analyze your achievements, and reinforce your skills by reintroducing words at various times to make sure that you are retaining the words you originally learned
