After you create your video blog and upload it to your YouTube account you still have more to do. You need to market your video. One of the easiest ways to get more views for your video blog is to embed the YouTube video on your website. In this video by Amy Lynn Andrews she shows you how to resize and embed YouTube video into a WordPress blog.
If you are using a platform other than WordPress the basic concept is still the same. You can also use the code in a sidebar widget; you’ll just need to resize the width to however wide your sidebar is. It will be a small, but playable, video in your sidebar.
One more tip for you: If you want to make sure it is centered wherever you embed YouTube video use this <center> before the embed code and this </center> after the embed code – without the underline of course.
After you embed your YouTube video make sure you add some text to your post to help with SEO and those that read via email or some mobile devices. Then publish your post and send the link through your social networks.
It’s not hard to resize and embed YouTube video and it’s good for your website. You don’t even have to use a video you made. You can embed most YouTube videos, and you are always welcome to share mine. Start today!
