Here’s an easy way to make the search engines love your site.
Adding video to your site or blog increases the amount of time that visitors spend on your site. The more time they spend, the ‘stickier’ your site appears, and ‘sticky’ sites enjoy higher search engine rankings.
The easiest way to put video on your site is to embed code from a video that you found on YouTube, Google Video or other video-sharing site. The video is served by YouTube, so you save bandwidth on your server. 🙂
Regardless of your niche, you should be able to find relevant content on any of the major video-sharing sites that will be of interest to your visitors that you can post to your affiliate sites.
For example, to entertain my visitors at 101Date.com, I posted a very cute animated proposal video that I found on YouTube to my online dating blog.
Find out how easy this is to do by watching my own short video “How to Post a YouTube Video to Your Blog“, which is served by YouTube. NOTE: YouTube has marked this as ‘adult-only’ viewing material so you have to be signed in to YouTube to actually see it. 🙂
You’ll see that embedding the video is as simple as finding the video that you want to post, then copying and pasting code from the video’s page directly into your post or webpage. You will have to register with YouTube first.
For videos that you find on Google Video, you have to dig a little deeper for the code.
Click the blue ‘Email – Blog – Send to MySpace’ button, then the ‘Embed HTML’ link that comes up directly below it and lastly the code to copy appears in a box below that.
Easy as pie!
