Nowadays, it’s no secret that videos are the preferred content type for users online. Videos are much more engaging, quicker to get a message across, and easily accessed by a wider audience than a block of text — no matter how well-written. Businesses around the world are picking up on this trend and working hard on their video marketing game to help boost conversion rates. But what good is video content if users can’t find the website where it’s featured, to begin with?

This is where Search Engine Optimization (SEO) comes in. Every online business wants to improve their website ranking in order to increase visibility. Putting in the work with SEO is crucial to achieving this. While there are many different angles from which you can optimize your site, adding video transcription to the list is a sure-fire way to rise in the ranks.


Subtitles Steer More Traffic In Your Direction


When considering SEO, YouTube and Google both read subtitles in video content when indexing a website. Adding subtitles, closed captions and even video transcripts to your site means that search engines can easily crawl your media content. Making sure to use optimized keywords will also help you score higher with search engine algorithms.


While your focus may be producing quality video content, keeping up with transcribing all the material you create can be a real challenge — especially when working at a high production rate. There is no need or value in creating extra work for your team, particularly in the form of more routine tasks. Outsourcing your transcription needs has never been easier, helping to save both time and money.
