Now that we’ve covered the importance of schema markup itself let’s discuss the properties and what you should include. Proper schema markup for videos requires number one, the title. Two, the description. Three, the thumbnail URL and four, the upload date. However, there are many other properties that can be added as well. This includes the duration of the video, the file size, the publisher, the author, the transcript and so much more. Visit schema.org to find a list of additional properties your law firm should be considering.
Now it’s one thing to explain all this. Let’s take a second to look at a side by side comparison of HTML code that does and does not have schema markup. It’s important to understand that this can be accomplished whether you’re hosting your legal videos on your own site or using an embed code. The only difference is that you’ll include a property for the embed URL so the search engines can identify where the source is. If you’re still deciding which hosting solution is best for you or your law firm please take a look at my video on video hosting for lawyers.
This is where we highlight some of the pros and cons of different hosting platforms such as Youtube, Vimeo and Local Lawyer Guide.
