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 log will also give you an idea of all the changes going into the plugin.
