How Video Sitemaps Can Impact Video SEO & Website SEO

| Comments

Do you upload videos on YouTube? If yes, then you should definitely use Video sitemaps to improve the visibility of your videos and website.

Benefit of using a Video Sitemap

When users do a search on Google and find any of your videos the link will bring them to your site and not YouTube. This is a big benefit.

Let’s look at a sample.

Sample : Video Sitemap Google Search Result

What is a Video Sitemap?

A Video Sitemap is an XML document that gives Google details of all the videos you have on your site so Google can index them correctly and as quickly as possible.

The video sitemap contains metadata and details of the video such as the webpage url, video url , thumbnail image url, description, tags and category for every video listed in it.

Creating a Video Sitemap

A Video XML Sitemap starts with urlset

<urlset
xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"
xmlns:video="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-video/1.1">

</urlset>

and inside the urlset we can write multiple url containing the details of the videos for every url.

The loc contains the url of the web page containing the YouTube videos on your website.

For example:

<loc>
  https://www.thevideotrainer.in/blog/2015/04/16/video-making-skills-can-impact-your-life-and-business-video-training-mumbai/
</loc>

The video:video contains all of the metadata and details about the videos.

video:thumbnail_loc specifies the thumbnail image url of the video.

For example:

This example uses a YouTube thumbnail image url http://i.ytimg.com/vi/CJPXorfIlnU/0.jpg. You can get access to your YouTube thumbnail image url by adding your YouTube Video id to this url http://i.ytimg.com/vi/yourYouTubeVideoIDwillgohere/0.jpg . Every YouTube video has a videoid like this CJPXorfIlnU.

<video:thumbnail_loc>
http://i.ytimg.com/vi/CJPXorfIlnU/0.jpg
</video:thumbnail_loc>

Next is video:title specifies title for every listed video within url.

Next two metadata/details are the most important details within a video sitemap video:content_loc means video content location and video:player_loc.

For example :

<video:content_loc>
http://www.youtube.com/v/CJPXorfIlnU
</video:content_loc>

<video:player_loc allow_embed="yes">
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJPXorfIlnU
