Great article by Nate Elliott for Forrester, The Easiest Way to a First-Page Ranking on Google:
"...if you're not optimizing your videos, you should start. 'Blended search,' the practice in which search engines display videos, images, news stories, maps, and other types of results alongside their standard search results, has become increasingly common on major search engines. And optimizing video content to take advantage of blended search is by far the easiest way to get a first-page organic ranking on Google."The article talks about a number of things that are covered in my book, Get Seen, along with something that I wasn't aware of, submitting your Video Sitemap to Google.
I'm looking into this and am going to implement it for my sites.
Have you implemented Google Site Maps for your videos?
