Example of a video search result
Let’s look at an example! If you search for e.g. [Yoast] in Google Videos, you’ll find this result from yoast.com:
See how cool that is? And it’s very easy too! If you use our plugin, the only thing you have to do is embed the video. After that, you add meta descriptions and good titles to your videos and choose the right tags and categories. That’s all!
Requirements for the Video SEO plugin
Do make sure you use oEmbed or a shortcode from one of the supported plugins. Also make sure that you use one of our supported platforms(YouTube of course is among them, but we generally advise people to use Wistia or Vimeo).
In order to let your videos rank with our Video SEO plugin you’ll need our Yoast SEO plugin as well, as the plugin relies on that plugin’s capabilities for XML Sitemaps, Facebook OpenGraph and more.
We’ve got a setup guide, usage instructions and an FAQ you can look at so you’ll get a feel for just how easy it is to use this plugin. The change logwill also give you an idea of all the changes going into the plugin.
The Video SEO plugin supports:
- Automatic XML Video Sitemap generation (adding on to the WordPress SEO XML Sitemaps).
- MediaRSS enhancements to your RSS feed.
- Full support for schema.org videoObject markup.
- Snippet previews with the actual video thumbnail in them and the ability to change that thumbnail.
- Facebook OpenGraph tags on your video pages so the video can optionally be played directly on Facebook.
- Support for many major video platforms, including Youtube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, Wistia and many others.
All these features combined make this Video SEO module a must-have for the video blogger using WordPress!
Why should I buy & use this Video SEO plugin?
“For optimizing WordPress sites I already relied on Yoast’s WordPress SEO plugin, this new extension for video, which I was fortunate enough to beta test, has already proven to be worth way more than what Yoast is asking for it.”
– Greg Boser
“WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin is by far the most complete SEO plugin for WordPress. When Joost told me about the video sitemap, I was ready to try it. Within a month, I found myself ranking on the first pages with my video articles. This module is a must have if you embed videos in your posts.”
