Google wants you to expand Webmaster Central Channel

Wifi

Google’s Webmaster Central YouTube channel is one of the most watched YouTube channels by webmasters, internet and search engine marketers, over the years its provided a number of valuable search marketing videos. Most of the videos are uploaded by Google’s Matt Cutts who answers user questions on search engine marketing.

Now, Google is calling webmasters and search engine marketers to provide useful content based videos based on their SEO strategies and search marketing expertise for possible inclusion on the Webmaster Central YouTube Channel.

To submit your videos to the Google Webmaster Central YouTube Channel you’ll have to follow a few guidelines

Keep the video short:
– According to the Google team 3-5 minutes is ideal, a short video is a good way to showcase your use of – for example – Top Search Queries, but not long enough to highlight your whole SEO strategy.

Real-Life case studies:
– Focus on a real-life example of how you used a particular feature. For example, you could show how you identified broken links to correct your 404 errors or crawl errors to diagnose problems with your site structure. Do you have a great tip or recommendation?

– Upload your video before September 30.

– White Hats SEO tactics :
The search videos should be white hat search engine optimisation tips, strategies, tactics and recommendations.

Google’s Webmaster Central YouTube channel is already a great resource for search marketing tips and advice. This initiative should only increase the value of that resource. The idea is to make help centre more community driven and interesting to users alongwith the credibility and authority stamp of being on the official Google channel.

This is an ideal opportunity for you to drive traffic to your website or blog, if selected Google will give full credits to your video.

To submit videos, go to the help center and submit it through the Help Center gadget. There is a full list of guidelines that goes beyond the short version listed above.

    I especially think this is a great idea since they are encouraging people to use real-life examples because how can you trust someone’s SEO knowledge if they have not used it in their real life?

    Really cool deal that Google is extending out to others on youtube, I bet there are some that have their mind spinning as a way to get them noticed, hehe. I was surprised they didn’t say anything in regards to if people are able to give themselves a plug, like a watermark on the video, or that sort of thing.

    Till then,
