Support for Google Structured Data for Video

In 2011 Google, Bing, Yahoo! and Yandex joined forces to create a standardized list of attributes which gave web developers the opportunity to communicate directly with web crawlers and help them to better understand the information that’s currently on your web page. From now on you are able to utilize the power of Google Structure Data with our video player.

Search engines use structured data to generate rich snippets and they also use them to improve your web page search results listing. Click To Tweet

Structured data represents an on-page HTML markup; a system of pairing a name with a value that helps search engines categorize and index your content. Each type of information has properties that can be used to describe items in more detail.

Search engines use structured data to generate rich snippets and they also use them to improve your web page search results listing.
