I have been using Yoast since the time we started our website. The results were just fantastic! The SEO Analysis of Yoast has really helped me on how I can improve my content. This has helped me improve the traffic on my website by 10 folds, but we started ranking on the 1st page of Google on the majority of our searches. I really thank Yoast SEO for helping me grow my website.

I have been using Yoast for a few years now, with great results and value. Lately, my website has encountered some crazy problems. I requested help from Yoast, and the support team was extremely helpful, very friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable; there is no problem that they cannot get answers and solutions. I found the Yoast support team’s attitude and dedication truly incredible and very rare. This should be the benchmark for this industry and other global organizations.

Let’s have a closer look at Yoast Video SEO

Find out how Yoast Video SEO helps you compete and learn about all of the additional SEO features we add to your videos!

Help Google show your videos in the search results

Getting rich results for your videos doesn’t have to be difficult. Simply add the video, title, description and you are good to go. We’ll add the Schema.org structured data videoObject markup that will help Google show your videos in the search results!

While Google tries its best to understand details about your video, you can explicitly provide information by adding the VideoObject structured data. It’s a must if you want your videos to appear in rich results.


Speed up pages with video content

Yoast Video SEO ensures pages with video content load fast by utilizing asynchronous JavaScript for video delivery.

Fast pages improve user experience and your ranking on Google. So don’t leave your users (and Google) waiting!



Responsive sizing without any hassle

Make sure your videos fit perfectly on all desktops, phones and tablets – all without lifting a finger.

No need to spend hours tinkering with code or browser testing. Delight your users with seamless videos whether they’re at home, at work, or on the move.

Ensure your video preview is optimized

Yoast Video SEO ensures that your video previews appear properly any time someone shares your page on Facebook or Slack by adding OpenGraph tags.

Incorporating a video preview is an effective way to capture viewers’ attention, so you need to make sure it functions properly. The OpenGraph tags ensure this by instructing the user’s device on how to display the video preview on, for instance, their Facebook’s feed.

Set custom, optimized thumbnails for your videos

You can set custom thumbnails for your video results in search, and a preview of how it will look before publishing.

The thumbnail is the first thing people see and is a major factor in determining whether or not they choose to click. A good thumbnail can make you stand out from your competition!

Automate your XML sitemaps

The plugin automatically creates Video sitemaps and add them to the XML sitemaps generated by Yoast SEO.

The Video sitemaps help Google find and understand video content on your site. If you host videos on your site, they should be available to the outside world within an XML sitemap.

Support for major video platforms

Yoast Video SEO includes support for many major video hosting platforms, including Youtube, Vimeo, Wistia and VideoPress.

So you can be certain that pages with videos from these platforms are optimized for SEO.
