Canadians also love YouTube ads, in fact, 95% of YouTube ads are watched with the sound on. If you think that YouTube ads are only for large corporations, think again. Small and medium businesses can advertise on YouTube with smaller budgets, you can create a video ad with just a few images and text. No need to hire Mr. Spielberg to shoot your ad!

Schema.org markup for videos

Videos are one of the most common types of results on search engines so it’s important to ensure that your videos get indexed. As such a new video support known as Schema.org has launched as a joint effort between Google, Microsoft, Yahoo! and Yandex and is now the recommended way to describe videos on the web. The markup is very simple and can be easily added to most websites.

If you have videos that you wish to have indexed, it’s important to add the schema.org video markup code to each video. You need to have some understanding of code to define and implement this coding. Contact Bloom Digital Marketing and our web masters can take of this for you!
