Requirements for the Video SEO plugin
Do make sure you use oEmbed or a shortcode from one of the supported plugins — see below for the list. 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 changelog will also give you an idea of all the changes going into the 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.” – Syed Balkhi, WP Beginner
