Video Sharing Site List - How to use it
You have made your video, now what? Where do you host it? How do you use it to get backlinks to your site? It is all described in this article along with a list of over 50 video sharing sites.
Let's say you have made your first "great" video. You have critiqued it, massaged it and perfected it. You feel good about it.
If you want to increase traffic to your website, create backlinks to your site.
(Backlinks are one-way links pointing to your site from other sites. The search engines put a great deal of importance on these. Backlinks say to the world, your website is worthwhile. . . after all, other sites point to it.)
You will want to post the video to several video sharing sites, to magnify the video's effect. Each time someone watches your video, you get another linkback ping . . . wow! Be sure you use your keywords in the description of the video. Also, start your description with your full URL, including the http: etc. This will help people find your video.
Make sure that you look at several videos on each site so that you can determine whether your video will fit on their site. For example, if your video is about "Eating Healthfully", don't expect to place it on a site dedicated to news. Many videos are how to types. HowCast doesn't accept videos that don't fit this style.com. Do not post to a video sharing site that is too diverse from what your video is about. Who on that site will watch it?
Fill in the profile information portion of the video sharing site that tells about you, shows your picture, your likes and dislikes, favorite books and hobbies. Your profile information helps people to see you as a whole person. If people want to learn more about you, they will look at your profile. Potentially, they will be in line with you in some way and perhaps want to create a sharing relationship, or other mutually beneficial link to you.
Don't forget to post to your video to the social networking sites like Digg.com, Mixx, Propeller, Reddit and others. Some won't let you put your video on their site, but you can still put your article on their site. In your article, summarize your video. Your article sends them to your video that you have hosted on your site.
This technique needs a little more explaining:
1. Post your video on your blog
2. Write an article, to accompany your video, using the appropriate keywords that describe your video. (Remember, the search engines, at this time, cannot look at your video to see what it is about . . . you will have to tell them in your article.)
3. Post your article on the social networking sites, mentioning the video.
4. Point them to your article and video which resides on your website.
