If you use video’s on your site, in your posts or pages, you don’t want the search results for those pages to look bland like any other result, do you?

This is exactly what the Video SEO for WordPress plugin does for your embedded video’s and for just $69 it can be on your site!

See how cool that is? It was very easy too. The only thing you have to do is embed the video using oEmbed or using a shortcode from one of the supported plugins. Below you’ll also find a list of supported platforms, and yes, YouTube is among them.
Combined with its required “parent plugin”, the WordPress SEO plugin, this Video SEO plugin is a powerhouse for the video blogger, but could also be what you need if you only have a few video’s on your site.

Why should I buy & use this Video SEO plugin?
It’s really simple: video results rank more easily and have a far higher click-through-rate from search results because they stand out in the search results. We’ve been using it here at Yoast for over a year now and the results have been amazing with keywords for several terms jumping from page 5 to position 2 just because we added a video. Now of course, we can’t give any guarantees, but we know it’s worked for us, it should work for you too!
But don’t just take our word for it:
