Google and Video Sitemaps

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday I got this email regarding a $77.00 (discounted) program that will create video sitemaps for you. Well, my gut told me this would not be a hard thing to do so I went to the webmaster tools area in Google and found the tutorial on how to do it.

So, before you spend $77.00 on this program, you can simply read the how to on Google. It's a bit confusing and it took me a while to figure out it really isn't hard, I just had to read it a few times to figure it out. I have to say I was surprised at the price of this program. I do believe it is worth "something" to have a program that makes it really simple and will create the sitemap for you as well as submit it to Google, but $97.00 (his eventual price) seems way too high. I think if he had priced it at $24.00 I would have purchased it because I do like to automate everything I do. But it will only take about 5 minutes or less to do this once you get the hang of it.

Anywho... it's not hard, if you have videos on your site or blog, it's a great idea to create these video sitemaps as Google will actually list your video in the search results. You'll need to create a little thumbnail image, which is also super easy to do. They tell you the size required and everything else you need.

Hope I save some of you some buckaroos,
Chrisi

Thanks for the post! I was just searching through Webmaster help for this very topic. It seems like a great way to get your pages listed at the top, with the other video results!

Cheers,
Brad
