Google’s video carousel result
Want your videos to show up in Google’s video results? This is what a video carousel looks like:
How cool is that! And it’s very easy too! If you use the Video SEO 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!
Getting great results for your site in the video search results in Google is just as easy. Simply add the video, title, and description and you are good to go!
Get your videos in the search results!
Get this plugin and make your videos eligible for Google’s video carousel and the Google Video tab search results
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 the Yoast SEO plugin as well, as the plugin relies on that plugin’s capabilities for XML Sitemaps, Facebook OpenGraph, and more.
Plus: Selfhosted videos with default video blocks are also supported!
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 plugin is a must have if you embed videos in your posts.” – Syed Balkhi, WP Beginner
