Somali Video SEO

According to CISCO, by the end of 2017, video content will account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic. Insivia reports that 55% of people watch videos online every day. Including video in a landing page can increase conversion by 80%.

It is no wonder that Video SEO has become a hot topic.

If you already have Somali video content or are thinking of adding Somali 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 Somali video or listen to audio, but they do “understand” (and index) text. This is why it is important to upload an aligned, accurate Somali transcript to support your video content or to provide Somali subtitles or captions. This is how search engines will “hear” your video.

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

We have formed partnerships with a number of video production companies around the UK who can film and produce a short corporate video for you. Working together with you, we can provide an accompanying transcript or subtitles in any language to fully optimize your video content.
