Before you embed a video on your website or blog, or share it on your social media channels, you should first upload the video directly to a video site like YouTube. This way, you don’t need to host the video on your website directly, which could slow down your page load times.
You will also get a search engine boost from having your video indexed on a high-traffic video hosting site, and you will have access to a number of additional sharing and conversational opportunities (ie: from people liking, commenting on, and sharing your video directly from YouTube, and from those made aware of your video due to YouTube’s video recommendations feature) beyond what can be achieved by your website or blog alone.
Here is a brief video tutorial showing how to quickly and easily upload your video to YouTube so that you can share it online. Enjoy, and we hope to see your videos soon!
