Youtube Video Sitemap - Strategy

 4:30 pm on Jan 10, 2011 (gmt 0)


I have been looking around for some information on video sitemaps with regards to Youtube, but there is a lack of info out there. I have bunch of videos hosted on Youtube that appear in the SERPs for good keywords. I would prefer my site to be showing as the source, so my website gets a share of the traffic.

There doesn't appear to be any solid information how to create a video sitemap for videos embedded on Youtube or if Google would have show my page over Youtube.

I am considering 3 things:

1. Create video sitemap using JS player to pull in the Youtube video

2. Upload to Youtube, but also upload to my site on player hosted on my site.

In Google's guidelines on video sitemaps, they said it's possible to create a video sitemap that contained videos hosted on Youtube. But details are sketchy and there is no information if that would actually help rank my web page as the source over Youtube.

Would love to hear people's ideas on this.
