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

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

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

Urdu is an Indo-Aryan language with about 104 million speakers, including those who speak it as a second language. It is the national language of Pakistan and is closely related to and mutually intelligible with Hindi, though a lot of Urdu vocabulary comes from Persian and Arabic, while Hindi contains more vocabulary from Sanskrit. Linguists consider Standard Urdu and Standard Hindi to be different formal registers both derived from the Khari Boli dialect, which is also known as Hindustani. At an informal spoken level there are few significant differences between Urdu and Hindi and they could be considered varieties a single language.

Urdu is also spoken in Afghanistan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Botswana, Fiji, Germany, Guyana, India, Malawi, Mauritius, Nepal, Norway, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, the UAE, the UK and Zambia.

Urdu has been written with a version of the Perso-Arabic script since the 12th century and is normally written in Nastaliq style. The word Urdu is Turkish for 'foreign' or 'horde'.

Urdu SAMPLE TEXT

اجنبی
کھوئی کھوئی آنکھیں
بکھرے بال
شکن آلود قبا
لُٹا لُٹا انسان !
سائے کی طرح سے میرے ساتھ رہا کرتا لیکن
کِسی جگہ مل جائے تو
گبھرا کر مُڑ جاتا ہے
اور پھر دور سے جا کر مجھ کو تکنے لگتا ہے
کون ہے یہ
پروین شاکر
