However, You Need To Follow Some Parameters In Terms Of Posting Videos Correctly!
Consider The Following Four Guidelines When Posting Videos In Your Articles:
1) Indicate That You Have A Video In Your Article.
When you are posting videos in your written content you should inform your readers immediately! You can achieved this two ways. Place the word “Video” in your article title right at the beginning. I specifically type “See Video” as you will note in the title of this post. The second option is to pay attention to where you place your video. You should position it near the beginning of your article or above the fold. I usually embed my video at the end of my first paragraph. So for the most part, I do both!

2) Make Sure That You Adjust The Size Of Your Video.
Another typical oversight is failing to optimize the video size. Note for example that YouTube provides some specific parameters when you embed video code on their site. In that scenario, you have the option of adjusting the width and the height. Specifically, you want your video width to be no wider than the blog column that you are placing it in. Find out what the width of the column is and adjust the video width to slightly less. You may have to experience some trial and error. Ultimately you will generate pleasing results when posting videos.
3) Be Sure To Include Some Sort Of Written Content.
Quite often you will come across blog posts that contain great video content. However, you will find no written description as to what you are about to view. That occurs in many situations. So the preferable approach to this scenario is to provide your viewer with a little context just before. Essentially, this can be a statement encouraging your site visitors to view the entire video. Place this introduction at the top of your video. At the bottom of the clip have a short summary. If the video clip is not your production, reference the author.
4) It Is Vital To Have A Call-To-Action In Your Article.
As soon as you have completed the main content of your article, it is important to incorporate a call-to-action. Place this at the end of your post. The idea is not to have your reader saying to themselves, “Nice article so what now?” If this is the case you are wasting the reader’s time and yours! Your call-to-action can be an opt-in form or a banner. I have written a number of articles about posting videos. So have a look at one of the key video based platforms on the market today! That is my call-to-action!
