Some things are almost too easy. Take for example embedding a Youtube video in the body of your WordPress blog post. What could be simpler? Get the link, paste it into your post. Except if you miss one little, non-intuitive detail your video clip wont show up and you’ll be left scratching your head.
In this video SEO consultant and trainer Ross Barefoot does a quick tutorial and points out the main pitfall to watch out for. He also explains why it’s a good idea to compose a blog post for videos that you post on Youtube. Total Video length is just under 6 minutes, so it’s a quick watch.
