The distinction between traditional TV and streaming digital is becoming more blurry. Video aggregators pull in content from multiple sources and present new opportunities for marketers to place relevant ads for target audiences.

The challenge aggregators seek to solve is where to put content. There are literally thousands of online video providers. Marketers and consumers alike don't know where to start looking. Often if they can't find a TV show or movie they want to see on their video provider they will turn to Google and search for the content there, only to be met with junk content that has nothing to do with the show or film. Aggregators aim to find content for consumers from more than one online video provider and present it in such a way that only the media is brought up in search, not the junk content. In this way, aggregators can be called the modern day TV guide. Read the full article »

drew Wallace, who prefers to have his name spelled with a lowercase d, organizes SEO "boot camps". He shared three tips on how to improve your business's SEO and specifically mentioned adding metadata content to YouTube videos. According to drew, "Google is like a 4-year-old watching a movie. More often than not, they can remember one song from the film, but the rest of those 90 minutes are completely gone."

What drew means is that Google can understand the content around a video, but it cannot understand the content inside of the video itself. So what isn't included in the video's description is lost completely in search. Optimize your video with a robust description - even the comments can help SEO - and you will have much better luck with content discovery. Read the full article »

You've been saying for months now you need a mobile-friendly website. Well, now Google is giving you further incentive to make that change. Google has announced that starting on April 21st websites that are not mobile-friendly will begin getting penalized on search engine result pages (SERPs). For video content marketers that means making sure that video players are built using HTML5 instead of the older model flash players or a migration of content to third-party platforms like YouTube that are also mobile friendly.

This may be a short-term financial burden, but the long-term benefit of making your website mobile-friendly is invaluable. There are more reasons to build a mobile website, too. Read the full article »
