Here is a quick SEO tip that should hopefully increase the amount of traffic you get through to your website.
Here’s the short version of the tip:
Add a clickable link to your website underneath each of your YouTube videos!
Here’s the long version of the tip:
Make sure that all of your YouTube videos – the one’s you have done for you business that is – have a clickable link underneath them so that viewers can easily visit your website after watching your video.
It always surprises me just how many people forget to add a clickable link underneath their videos, opting instead to display their website address at the end of the video or by writing their website address somewhere in the text below their video.
These methods are ok providing that the viewer watches all of the video and has a pen handy, the time to write down your website address, and then have the inclination to type this into their address bar. I can tell you now that most viewers don’t want this hassle.
Or, if you have written your website address in the text below your YouTube video, well at least this is better than nothing but again you’re making it difficult for the interested view to visit you website as they have to copy and paste your url into their address bar.
What to do!
So the best thing to do is create a clickable link within your text (blurb about the video), preferably at the beginning somewhere, by simply starting your website address with http:// – for example http://endgoalmarketing.com You’ll notice I haven’t added ‘www’ as there’s no need to.
Here’s an example of a Youtube video promoting a musical band that has had thousands of views but where they have forgotten to add a clickable link. You can’t afford to lose such a huge amount traffic!
My final thoughts about this tip
This is only a very small thing that you can do to increase the amount of traffic that you get to your website but as they say every little bit helps.
Don’t wait until you next add a video to Youtube to start adding clickable links – instead go to your Youtube account right now and add clickable links to all of your existing video is they haven’t already done so!
