If your company videos are hosted on YouTube, they are naturally indexed and receive search traffic. But what about videos on your website pages hosted on services like Wistia, Vidyard, or Vimeo? How are these pages ranked and receive traffic?
Google Search Console has a new video page indexing report that provides insight into the pages it knows about having a video embedded. This way, you can better optimize your pages to receive additional search traffic for videos not hosted on YouTube.
Video SEO is an excellent opportunity because Google includes video results in many search result pages and often gets a higher click-through rate than text-based articles.
