Back in June I posted a few tips from ABS-SEO on how to apply SEO when your site is mostly videos.  However, Search Engine Optimization has given way to Social Media Optimization (SMO).  Sites such as Technorati, Facebook, Myspace, Linked In… the list goes on and on, have affected the way everyone looks for information.  Don’t get me wrong, Google is still the king of the internet jungle, but Social Media sites may offer a way to reach a targeted audience.  So how do you make your site work with these new technologies?

seolinkbuildingtips4u came up with 5 tips that you may find handy.

  1. Increase Your Linkability
  2. Make Tagging and Bookmarking Easy
  3. Reward Inbound Links
  4. Help your Content Travel
  5. Encourage the Mashup

I tend to post a lot of videos on my blogs.  I’m a very visually orientated person and implementations like Youtube and VodPod and other video based technologies make it more and more accessible for small business owners to use videos to their advantage.  But how does this affect your website?  Search Engine Optimization is mainly based on the text of your site, not the videos.  If your site is entirely videos, you could have the most relevant information, but your rank would be low.

ABS-SEO had some interesting information on how to optimize your videos for Search Engines.  Check out article here.  Some are good tips for everypage, not just videos.
