And now comes the important part

When your video finished up, not yet publish! Go to the tab notes and create a new note. Annotations are those balloons in the middle of the videos, which are clickable and redirect you to another video, playlist, channel or even another site, including a Landing Page of its content, but for this you need to prove that your website is your same by adding it to Google’s console.

In this way, follow the instructions from Google to prove. Stay tuned to the domain, for example, if your site is meusite.com.br , but its content / Landing Page is in a subdomain like ebooks.meusite.com.br , you must climb the Google html in ebooks.meusite. com.br , otherwise Google will not allow annotations created in the videos are directed to specific Landing Page.

The bad part of it? Your post does not get evidence and the range is not as good as an image or even just a post text, right on Facebook.

How to solve this then?

A very cool solution is to do the following:

With this, you create more of a communications channel – in addition to Google organic searches, up a video on Facebook can increase by up to 66% organic range of the post. We did this test for a while here in Digital results and the numbers were impressive !
