    Hardcore Video SEO Resources with a Local Search Emphasis


    Google LOVES video as you all know, yet I don't hear it talked about much in local. I've been talking about it alot in my private Local Search Pro forum and have been doing a lot of research on video SEO lately. So I thought I'd share some of the great resources I've discovered.

    1st of all, there is so much confusion about integrating your Youtube channel with your Local Google+ page. And rightly so, it's gotten really confusing. I've been scanning the G+/YouTube communities below as well as the official G+ community and it's amazing how confused everyone is about integrating G+ and YouTube and all the related issues that can come up.

    Then when you throw local into the mix with multiple locations/practitioners, etc., things really get convoluted & interesting! Here is a post at our forum with some good info that illustrates the confusion: New YouTube tab on Google+ Local page.

    That post is part of the reason I added the G+ resources at the top.
    Then below that you'll find pure Video SEO goodness!


    Google+ YouTube resources

    Google identities on YouTube (Google help doc - Thanks Kaleh)

    Manage channels linked to Google+ pages (Google help doc - Thanks Keenan!)

    YouTube Google+ Integration (Official Google Community)

    YouTube Google+ Integration Blog (by Peggy K - Google Top Contributor)

    Peggy K's YouTube Videos - Great How-to info

    GooTubePlus (Google Community)

    Thanks go out to Keenan Glass and Kaleh Kohler, Google Top Contributors for turning me onto some of the resources above.

    ADDED 1/17/14 Dusty one of our members just did a post filled with Gtube resources and there may be some not mentioned above. G+ / Youtube Channel Support Links

    OK so there, I cleaned out some of my best video SEO bookmarks, but again I'm just starting to collect good tips/resources as I find them.

    So let's put our heads together and share the best of the best below.

    PLEASE DO NOT START A GENERAL DISCUSSION OR ASK CLIENT OR G+ INTEGRATION Qs IN THIS THREAD. Convo will go all over the place and make it too hard to sift through to find the important resources.

    Please start a new thread with question or for discussion and let's keep this one focused on resources and links.


    I will continue to post as I find more good ones.

    How about you, any good resources to share???

    Great compilation, Linda. Looks like I'm going to have to schedule some reading time.

    And it is so true, I've given myself headaches trying to sort out the G+/youTube integration issue for some clients. Ugh!

    Awesome resources! Video is an untapped market in Local. Can really work great for standing out from the competition as most AREN'T participating. Great Sunday morning reading, thanks Linda!
