  • Allow search engine to display a thumbnail of the video along with the title and description of the post/page

WP Video SEO Plugin Usage

Video Sitemap Generation

The plugin is fairly simple to use. Once you have installed the plugin go to the settings menu of the plugin from your WP Dashboard (Settings->WP Video SEO). Click on the “Generate Video Sitemap” button which will create a video sitemap in the root directory of your site. Check to make sure that the file “sitemap-video.xml” has been created.

If you make any changes to your existing posts/pages the sitemap will be updated automatically. So you just need to generate it once. The full URL to your video sitemap usually looks like the following:

[www.example.com/sitemap-video.xml]

If you are using Google Webmaster Tools you can submit the “sitemap-video.xml” file as a sitemap which will allow you to monitor the index status of your videos.

Our site is almost entirely made up of videos but this plugin only recognises 2 out of 27. It is not working properly

Don't usually like to put 1 star but this one is a reason too. I am not putting my whole root directory in 777 permissions to make it available for hackers to get to my website. Since, this plugin is doing that. I am skipping this one big time.
