Here Nelson Lee, Product Manager at Google, talks about video sitemaps, which help make your video content easier for users to find. Key points on what Google needs to know:

  • The title
  • A brief description of your video
  • The play page URL where Google can direct users to watch the video
  • The URL of the thumbnail image you would like Google to display
  • and the raw file location where the video is stored securely.

Once you’ve collected this information, sign in and submit your sitemap using Google webmaster tools
