Using other peoples video content?

Last Update: May 07, 2017

Hello everyone, I am just checking before I inadvertently make a mistake.

My niche is an art one and unfortunately I can't physically show someone how to do something, for example build a storage wall. I rent and it is not practical.

But if I cite where a How To video comes from and add it to my site, will I be in trouble with anyone?

I am not looking to present it as my work but am showing the How To.

Would I be in trouble of some sort from WA, google, the little guy sitting in the back of my computer watching my every move, or anyone else.

I don't think I would be because I am acknowledging where and who the video came from but better to be safe than sorry.

thanks

Sharon

You can use youtube videos that have a "Share" link to embed the video in your site. If the video's originator has posted the share link, no further permission is needed.

Marion Black created some training about how to do this:

Adding actual links to outside sources will cause a ranking hit. Avoid that if you can. Maybe try including the address from the address bar and removing the hyperlink from it. I don't know if that will work.

I didn't think about the ranking hit.

Thanks for the help. I am going to watch Marion Blacks training.

It will have something about that.

Thank for the advice.
