The Problem With YouTube Embeds

There was one major issue with embedding YouTube Videos.

People can get distracted and leave your site.....

The main reason for this is because of the related videos within YouTube embeds.

So we need to minimize "distraction" and keep readers engaged and taking action.

This tutorial will show you how..

Are we allowed to use any YouTube videos?

Embedding them into your website is allowed, the link goes to youtube and runs from there.

Now if you want to use the video for yourself on your own youtube channel you better ask the creator owner if they are ok with that. You might violate copyrights if you don't.

Just to clarify, I'm allowed to use any YouTube videos as I please without asking the owners permission to embed to my website?

In Europe yes, I heard the same for the USA, you might want to check with your country and the laws about that.

Good point.

Embedding a video is totally fine, it gives the video more credibility and it actually helps the video creator to rank better on youtube. That's no reason that the video creator can penalize you.

Awesome info! quesition. can you add any video you want to your site? is there any copyright issues?
Reply
BeauAndNik Premium
the general rule of thumb is that if the video itself has share options then you are welcome to use it. in the event that the original uploader illegally published it, you would wait for an email asking to remove it and then just follow suit.

No stress!

Apologies I meant, when you create a blog - to be able to embed html code to add a video - is that premium only?
Reply
ririj Premium
You should be able to embed a video. I recommend just putting a picture on and linking to the video. The embedding can slow your site down a lot.
Reply
BeauAndNik Premium
I have seen no major speed loss from embedded videos. It also has the benefits of:

A: keeping people onsite thus increasing page dwell
B: Adds to user experience
C: Decreases indexing time - Google owns Youtube and will crawl these embeds
D: Helps rank the YouTube video - Perfect if you own the video.
E: Helps rank your site - The power goes both ways!
F: Decrease page bounce - By having an image that takes them away from your site is making them bounce from the page.

Text option is there for all members. Where you write the content you should see small tabs to the right of the screen, Visual and Text. The text one is the tab you want to add the code to.

Thanks BeauAndNik, I can't for the life of me see the Visual and Text options :(

WIf you have "monetized" your video on YouTube, will this minimalist view stop the ads and hence the monetization?
Reply
BeauAndNik Premium
no, this will still work as usual.
Reply
fleurallen Premium
Hey AlFair, I am new here and still working things out so if non monetized videos are preferred that is no problem but I'd appreciate guidance and patience - cheers!

working on a landing page and this worked great! can you give me advise though, can I remove my website title from this page? I am thinking maybe I should just start a whole new site for my landing page.. thanks for any advise
Reply
BeauAndNik Premium
depending on the theme you should be able to remove the title... if there is no option you may have to look at removing it through coding..

you could just create the landing page on a page and have no inbound links (keeping it hidden from the rest of the site).

The other way would be to build it on a subdomain and have it work independently
Reply

Thanks.. think I am going to explore a subdomain .. thanks for the help.. was having trouble finding a good (free) landing page that allowed a video...
