How Video Affects SEO

Google’s search engine algorithms are now able to parse through video content and identify key on-screen elements that searchers need to know. Additionally, the on-page elements that surround a video play key roles in how the content is crawled, indexed and served to users.

Video SEO Ranking Factors

Just like traditional SEO, marketers should keep certain ranking factors in mind when
designing their video strategy. Here are some top ones to consider:

eye

Total video views.

clock

Video watch time.

key

Keyword usage in titles, captions, tags, descriptions, categories and channel pages.

play

Video length that matches searcher intent.

hand phone

User engagement (liking, sharing, commenting, subscribing, clicking).

YouTube, the world’s largest video hosting platform, is owned by Google, the
world’s largest search engine. And Google SERPs directly feature YouTube videos
on Page 1, with rich descriptions, links and on-SERP playback. So the connection
between high-quality video content and its impact on SEO is enormous.

Your marketing strategy is incomplete without video – search engines and
prospects will take notice. YouTube SEO is a mandatory investment.
