If you already have Kurdish video content or are thinking of adding Kurdish video content to your site, or having your own YouTube channel, there are various things to bear in mind in terms of video SEO.

Research your keywords – there are free tools available to help you choose them carefully. Ensure your video description and content reflects your choice of keywords.

Search engines can’t watch a Kurdish video or listen to audio, but they do “understand” (and index) text. This is why it is important to upload an aligned, accurate Kurdish transcript to support your video content or to provide Kurdish subtitles or captions. This is how search engines will “hear” your video.

We can provide transcripts or subtitles in any language including Kurdish. Just get in touch to let us know how we can help.

WHILE YOU’RE HERE... SOME QUITE INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE Kurdish LANGUAGE

The Kurdish language is related to Persian (or Farsi), the language spoken in Iran. Kurdish, like Persian, has also borrowed many words from the Arabic language. Until 1991, it was illegal to speak Kurdish in Turkey except at home. The skillful use of language is highly valued by Kurds. Cleverness and a command of poetry are considered important skills. Population estimates for the Kurds range from 5 million to 22 million. More Kurds live in Turkey than anywhere else. They are the second-largest ethnic group in Turkey, Iraq, and Syria. They are the third-largest group (after Azerbaijanis) in Iran. Kurds also live in Lebanon, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Germany, and other places across Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia. Although they live among them, Kurds are ethnically unrelated to Turks, Arabs, and Iranians.
