Embedding YouTube Video on Mobile Optimized Site for Mobile SEO
Mobile vs. Desktop
There are many options you have for embedding a YouTube video on a desktop–
- Above the fold?
- Left on the page?
- Landscape orientation, or upright?
However, your options get reduced significantly when thinking of user experience on a mobile device, since the video usually takes up the full width of the screen.
This can dramatically affect your Mobile SEO results, as time on page is a high ranking factor. If your embedded video is not attractive and easily viewable, the resulting bounce rate can kill you.
There are a few options that you might not know about, and if you don’t know how to properly implement them, it could really hurt your Mobile Optimization [Check out my post “5 Reasons “Mobile Friendly” Might NOT Be”].
