Top Tips for SEO Video Strategy

If the back end of 2012 has taught us anything, it’s that infographics and videos are going to be huge in 2013. Visit just about any website these days and you’re likely to find images, videos or, as is most likely, both. Marketers with an eye on the ball will already know that the increased popularity of video is a great opportunity to achieve increased brand visibility, providing your SEO video strategy is implemented properly and in good time.

Video SEO

So here are some great tips for planning and implementing a great SEO video strategy:

Choose Your Keywords Wisely

Videos, as with all other types of online content, involve the use of keywords which can be found in meta tags and alt attributes as well as in descriptions, link texts and URLs. All of these things can be optimised to attract visitors and increase conversion, providing your choice of keywords is appropriate for your brand and not too saturated already.

Use Social Media to Network Your Content

Uploading videos to your website is great, but won’t attract visitors unless you tell people that they’re there. Use social media networks to draw attention to your videos, and make use of other video sharing sites – such as YouTube – to post teasers and trailers of your amazing content. This will not only give your intended audience a reason to visit your site, it will give them a forum in which they can discuss your brand. Sites like YouTube draw visitors from all countries, so it will give your international SEO a boost too.

Optimize Your Links and Sharing Methods

Sharing your own content will attract some visitors but the best kind of digital marketing is organic, so make your content as relevant and interesting as possible to encourage your viewers to share it themselves. Embedding links into the content or description of your media will ensure that wherever your content goes, they will go too.

Optimize Your Videos for Search Engines

If you want your videos to be ranked well, here are some handy hints for implementing good SEO practice before uploading:
– Name your media properly with an emphasis on keywords.
– Choose where your video will be submitted, and at what time. There are plenty of great online resources which can give you advice on what social network is seeing the most conversions at which time of day.
– If you’re publishing the video on your own blog or website, make sure the web page it will go on is fully optimized before release.
– Create a separate video site map which can be submitted to search engines.
– Link your video back to one author profile which will be responsible for the production of your company’s media content, and ensure this profile is fully optimized across all major social networks.

So, there are lots of ways in which you can use SEO to optimize your media rich content, but the best one of all is to ensure that content is both relevant and interesting. There’s nothing more likely to create brand buzz than a video which can capture your audience’s attention, and keep it.

Google Finally Launches ‘Disavow’ Bad Links Tool

Google Disavow Links Tool

Google has finally launched their own ‘Disavow’ Bad Links Tool. The tool allows you to remove bad inbound links that are harming your website’s rankings. That means, by adding bad incoming links in this tool – you are telling Google that you do not want these links to consider while deciding your site’s rankings in SERPs. The tool was first launched by Bing earlier this year.

How To Use ‘Disavow’ Bad Links Tool:

Step 1: To use this tool, first login to your Google Webmaster tools account & click here.

Google Disavow Links Tool

disavow-links Process

Step 2: Click ‘Disavow Links’. Google will give you warning about how using this feature incorrectly can even harm your website’s rankings. As in case, if you remove good links – it can affect your site’s performance in SERPs.

remove-bad-links Google

Step 3: In this step, you need to upload the file of links that you want to remove. Click ‘Choose File’ and upload a plain text file (create this in Notepad) with a list of links that you want to remove. Include only one URL per line. If you want Google to ignore all links from an entire domain (like example.com), just add the line domain: example.com. Don’t upload the entire list of links to your website: the file that you upload should contain the list of links you want Google to ignore.

Click the ‘Submit’ button and then click on Done.

You can even watch this video in which Matt Cutts explains the “Disavow links” feature of Google Webmaster Tools.

Note: It will take few weeks for Google to incorporate this information into their index to decide rankings in SERPs.

Learn more about how to use the disavow links feature on Google Webmaster Centrel blog and in Google’s Help Center.

So, what do you think of this new Google ‘Disavow Links’ tool?

Everything You Need To Know About Recent Algorithm Changes By Google

Google Algrithm Changes

Google has made too many significant changes in their algorithm in the last three weeks. It all started with the Google Panda Update 20 on September 27, 2012. This is the 20th update of Google Panda since it’s first update on February 24, 2011(which impacted 11.8% of English search queries). Google confirmed that the new Panda algorithm update is not just a data refresh but an algorithm update.

This was one of the major Panda update as it impacted 2.4% of English search queries and a smaller impact in other languages (for example, 0.5% in French and Spanish).

Google Algrithm Changes

Then, Google announced the Exact Match Domain(EMD) update on September 28, 2012 that is targeted to remove the low-quality exact match domain sites from ranking well and higher in Google search.
So, if you see any changes in your traffic around September 27 or 28 – chances are that your site has been punished by any of these updates.

Then came the Google Penguin Update 3 on October 5, 2012 that will impact search queries across multiple languages including 0.3% in English. This is the third update of Google Penguin since it’s first update on April 24, 2012(which impacted 3.1% of English search queries).
Google confirmed that it’s just a data refresh of Penguin algorithm and not an algorithm update.

The most recent change is Top Heavy Update 2 which was rolled out on October 9th, 2012 which impacted 0.7% of English search queries. Top Heavy update, which was first announced in January, 2012 is targeted at web pages with too many ads “above the fold,” also known as Google’s ‘Page Layout’ algorithm.

Apart from these changes, Google also announced changes in their YouTube algorithm last week. YouTube will now reward videos with higher engagement in their search rather than videos with just more clicks.

So, if you see changes in your web traffic in the last three weeks – your site is most likely affected by any of these changes. In that case – you can follow our guide about “How To Survive Any Google Panda or Penguin Updates”.

8 YouTube SEO Tips To Rank Higher in Search Results

YouTube SEO

YouTube is the most popular video sharing site on the web and the second largest search engine after Google. Yes, it’s bigger than Yahoo and Bing search. Everyday, millions of people search for relevant videos on YouTube and Google. And there lies an big opportunity. As most of the people upload videos without taking account any factors for video SEO, you can rank higher in search results by using following well proved techniques.

1) YouTube Keyword Suggestion Tool:

YouTube SEO

YouTube Keyword Suggestion Tool

The first and foremost rule for successful YouTube SEO is the keyword research. YouTube Keyword Suggestion Tool will suggest you keywords to choose for your videos along with the information on monthly searches on those keywords in a given location or through out the world. You should also use Google Keyword Suggestion Tool along with YouTube tool to decide more relevant keywords for your videos.

2) Include Keywords in Video filename:

The next thing you should do is to include topic keywords in the video file name that you upload. The name of the video file should match the keywords you’re targeting. For example, if your video is about Non veg cooking – then your video file name should be something like “Non-Veg-cooking.mpeg”. Do not upload videos with name such as “Mov123.mpeg”.

3) Include keywords in the Title:

Just like On-Page SEO techniques for any webpage, include your keyword in the title and try to put it at the start and end of the headline for better SEO results. But remember, title should be enticing enough to increase your CTR(Click Through Rate). YouTube algorithm also takes into account CTR of videos to rank them in search results. Don’t just include keywords for the sake of it. Your title/headline is the first impression of your videos.

4) Include keywords in the descriptions and Tags:

Description- Description gives search engines more information about your videos. For better keywords relevancy, always include keywords and variation of keywords in the description. You can do so by explaining more about your videos or you can also add the complete script of your video in the description for Google and YouTube to index it. It is recommended that you should also put a URL back to your website.
If you are putting a URL link in the description, use http:// before the URL or else it will not work!
YouTube only allows approx. 22 words for the description before the (see below) button. Try to put URL and your keywords early in the first 22 words.
Tags- I would recommend to use 6-10 appropriate tags for each video and do include keywords in the tags also.

5) Improve SEO with Closed Captions

At the bottom right corner of videos, you can notice a “CC” button which stands for Closed Captions. You can see the captions of any video by clicking on “CC” button. Google is using a speech-to-text conversion technology which will convert your video voice over into captions. But the results won’t be accurate.
So, it is always advisable to upload your own caption transcript file than letting YouTube automatically transcribe the audio itself.
YouTube uses a speech recognition feature that will automatically detect each line of your video and matches it to the transcript file. That means you just have to upload the transcript file and the captions will automatically appear exactly in sync with the video.

Google and YouTube indexes the captions of videos to determine the relevancy of keywords in the video and rank them higher in search results.

6) Authoritative YouTube Channel:

If you’re uploading videos to a new YouTube channel, your videos won’t rank higher in search results as compared to new videos by a authoritative channel in the same niche. This is similar to a new website SEO – fresh content by a new blog Vs fresh content by authoritative website such as mashable.com.
So, build your subscribers and upload lot of relevant videos to improve your YouTube channel SEO. And just like a website, upload videos regularly for better SEO results.

7) Off-Page SEO Techniques:

Just like Off-Page SEO techniques for any webpage, try to get many backlinks for your videos from high PR sites all over the web to rank higher in YouTube and Google search results.
To increase backlinks, share your videos on social networking and social bookmarking sites. Blog about it and ask other bloggers to write about your videos.

8) More Engagement Means Better SEO:

Try to increase engagement on your videos. Get more likes, favorites, & comments, respond to comments and ask readers to subscribe to your channel. YouTube takes all these factors into consideration while ranking videos in search results.
Update: According to a recent announcement, YouTube now will reward engaging videos that keep viewers watching in order to decide the rankings of videos in YouTube search. So, it’s not enough to get someone to click on your videos, you have got to get them to actually watch if you want your work to rank higher in search results. YouTube’s analytic will now include a “time watched” feature.

So what are the techniques you’re adopting to improve the search ranking of your videos? Do share in comments.

20 Tips To Survive Google Panda or Penguin Updates

google penguin

 

Google recently released a new update to their Webspam algorithm, called Penguin Update which is targeted on the websites that are violating Google’s existing quality guidelines. Google has provided plenty of guidelines and elaboration on the quality guidelines in its help center.

google penguin

Here are Top 20 tips from Google Help Center itself to survive any Google Panda or Penguin Update:

Quality Guidelines – Specific Guidelines

1) Avoid hidden text or hidden links

Hidden links are those links which are unreadable to Humans(readers) but are intended to be crawled by Google bots. Some people make links on their website Hidden by using the same text color and background color or using the link on a hyphen in a paragraph. These practices are deceptive and Google will remove your website from their index.

You Should Avoid Following Practices:

– Using white text on a white background.
– Hiding text behind an image.
– Using CSS to hide text and links.
– Setting the font size on your pages to 0.

2) Don’t use cloaking or Doorway Pages

Cloaking means the practice of showing different content or URLs to users & search engines. For example, Presenting a page of HTML text to search engines, while presenting a page of images or Flash to users.

Doorway pages are those web pages that are created for spamming the index of a search engine by including results for particular keywords with the purpose of sending visitors to a different page. They are also known as bridge pages, jump Pages, entry pages, portal pages, and gateway pages. These pages are created with the intent of sending traffic to affiliate pages.

Avoid these practices of manipulating search engines and deceiving users to avoid any kind of ban from Google.

3) Avoid Sending Automated Queries to Google

Avoid sending any kind of automated queries to Google. There are many software available these days to check how a website or webpage ranks in Google search results for various queries. These software send automated queries to Google and absorbs their resources which may result in banning your site from Google index.

4) Don’t load pages with irrelevant keywords(Keyword Stuffing)

Keyword stuffing” is the practice of loading a webpage with too many keywords in an attempt to manipulate a website’s ranking in Google’s search results. This type of practice may result in negative user experience and also can harm your website ranking. Avoid any type of Over Optimization techniques on your web pages.

5) Avoid creating multiple pages, domains, or subdomains with duplicate content

Examples of Duplicate content could include:

Discussion forums that can generate both regular & stripped-down pages targeted at mobile devices
Store items shown or linked via multiple distinct URLs
Printer-only versions of web pages.

If your site contains multiple pages with almost identical content, then you can use a technique called “Canonicalization” to indicate your preferred URL to Google.
You can use “301 redirects’ and Webmaster Tools to handle identical content. Or just try to minimize similar content.

6) Avoid creating pages with malicious behavior

Malicious Behavior covers all sorts of malicious software designed to harm a computer or network such as Viruses, Trojans and badware. Google immediately inform webmasters about their site being flagged as malicious and banned from Google Index. So, do check Webmasters Tools daily.

7) Use Affiliate Marketing but only if you provide unique and relevant content

Do not attempt to improve your page’s ranking & attract visitors by creating pages with many words but little or no authentic content and linking all those pages to affiliate marketing programs.

Quality Guidelines – Basic Principles

1) Make your site pages primarily for readers, and not for search engines.

2) Avoid using Black Hat SEO techniques, some of which are explained above. Black Hat SEO refers to the techniques that are used to get higher search rankings in an unethical manner.

3) Don’t participate in Link Building Exchange Schemes or Paid Link Building to increase your site’s ranking or PageRank.

See Also: 3 Tips For Off Page Optimization Techniques For SEO Success

4) Do not use unauthorized computer programs to submit pages, check rankings, etc. Such kind of programs consume lot of computing resources & violate Google’s TOS. Google doesn’t recommend the use of programs such as WebPosition Gold™ that send automatic/programmatic queries to Google.

Technical Guidelines

1) Monitor your site’s performance & optimize load times. If your website is taking too much time to load, Google may push your rankings. The main goal of Google is to provide users with the most relevant results & a great user experience. Fast sites increase user satisfaction & improve the overall quality of the web.

2) Use robots.txt on your site to prevent crawling of search results pages or other auto-generated pages that don’t add much value for users coming from search engines.

3) Make reasonable efforts to ensure that ads don’t affect search engine rankings. For example, Google’s AdSense advertisements & DoubleClick links are blocked from being crawled by a robots.txt file.

4) Test your website to make sure that it appears correctly in different browsers.

Design and Content Guidelines

1) Make your website with a clear hierarchy & text links. Every page should be reachable from at least one static text link.

2) Keep the outbound links on your webpage to a reasonable number.

3) If your website contains lot of images. Then use relevant keywords in the ALT Attribute on the images.

4) Regularly check for broken links on your website and fix them.

5) Write original and high quality content.
