Benu Aggarwal, CEO, Milestone Internet Marketing started the session showing the Universal Search Results from Google that blends listings from news, video, images, local, map, and boo search engines among those it gathers from crawling web pages.



Why Online Searchable Video?



  • It’s free. No cost per click/action

  • Universal Search Results – Search Engines are showing mixed search results from websites, blogs, videos, images, mobile, local, etc. It is critical to saturate the golden triangle.

  • Social and Viral lift

  • Brand awareness and traffic generation

  • It’s easy to rank high for very competitive keyword phrases on video search since it is relatively new.


The difference between Standard Video vs. Search Engine Optimization Video is that the standard video files are not optimized for search engines and cannot be found via keywords. Same parallel as a search engine friendly website vs. a website that is set up as a brochure. Users will need to know the website address.


3 out of 5 users in the US consume online videos every month.


Benu went on to describe the 6 steps to create and promote SEO Video:



  1. Keyword research, story boarding, script/voice talent

  2. Video Production, raw footage, voiceover

  3. Optimize the video for web delivery, encode the video

  4. Surround video with html

  5. Create Media RSS (XML) and Create Video Sitemap

  6. Video Submission and track your video views


When it comes to your images, optimize your images for search by adding on Flickr, Google, and others. Use image tags to optimize the images. Optimize pages for local by using address and image names.
