Pay attention when embedding YouTube-Videos

What to pay attention to when integrating videos?

Not only is embedding a video on your personal Website more engaging and interactive for your visitors, it can also boost your ratings. Having a video gives you a better Google ranking due to the search engine optimization (SEO), which favor websites with videos. But don’t just place a link to a video on your personal website, because this won’t increase your ratings, it will just send your visitor to the linked website. The goal is to have your visitors stay on your personal website as long as possible. Another important aspect of is that videos take up space on your site, and space is very valuable. Once a video has been seen, the visitor will most likely not watch it again. New video embedding technology allows you to not use as much space for videos on a website such as call-up video on demand. This feature enables you to utilize more space for other information by keeping the embedded video as small as possible. The embedded video will only enlarge on the demand through clicking on it. This activates a larger view of the video for the time it is being viewed. Save space and be more efficient.
