Many of the marketers I know are using video to capture attention of their readers. Using YouTube annotations is a great way to add information to a video and also get internal and external link juice at the same time. The problem is that so many people missed this when it first came out and others simply didn’t know how to capitalize on the opportunity. There are dozens of uses when you annotate a video, but we will focus on the three that mean the most to internet marketers here.
Use the YouTube annotations feature to maximize your videos for massive traffic.
1) Visual Information- Your videos are designed to deliver information in a strong, yet simple way. Using pictures and sounds will always attract people quicker that the written word. With that said they are also looking to information and are willing to read it in the video as well, I f it is relevant. When you annotate a video, you are adding something over the top of your video that will stand out and be noticed. As long as it is of benefit to the overall message, it will work well for you.
2) Internal Links- The YouTube annotations system will currently only deliver clicks internally. This means that the viewer can actually click on something in the video and be taken to another area in YouTube. You can send your viewers to your channel, other videos you like, and other videos you have made, or even give them the chance to subscribe to your channel. This is an amazing tool if you learn to use it effectively. The only limitation is your imagination.
3) Back Links- While the links all internal to YouTube, when you annotate a video, Google does still notice that as a back link to the URL you use. So if you are looking for back links to your blog or article, the YouTube annotations system delivers a powerful link from a site with a huge page rank. This can be a massive tool for your marketing when you use it in the right way.
