Video is the ruling party of Internet searches. People want images, charts, drawings, pictures and especially videos. Because the human attention span has withered alarmingly over the years due to lightning speed content, grabbing a visitor with a video is essential. The chance of someone opening your video post is 11,000 to 1. This may seem like a lot until you compare it with the chances of someone opening your web text post which comes in at approximately 500,000 to 1. Therefore, including YouTube videos in your blog posts, even if they aren’t yours rings true to be a savvy move in generating traffic your way.
Locate the embed box along the bottom of the YouTube video you want to post. Copy the embedded code and paste it into your webpage and you are done. For WordPress, locate the TinyMCE editor that comes with it. Turn off the editor for the post you are creating and paste the YouTube code into the post.
You Tube give us the opportunity to deep-link to a specific part of a video by adding minute and second parameters to the end of the video URL.
Here is an example on how to do it:
The original video URL is like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GK0aQrCDEo
We add “#t=1m33s” to the end of the URL like:
The content of the video will be displayed starting after 1 minute and 33 seconds. Good isn’t it? Linking to a specific part of a video is possible by this way which I believe is very useful. See how Matt Cutts tells about Youtube Deep-linking.
