I finally finished my first video for my site. My intention is to use video if possible as another way to drive traffic to my site, by having my site's URL in the annotations on Youtube, by offering the video to other sites provided they include my link, and by trying to get Google to rank the video for some search phrases.
The video is a way to bring visitors to the site (I hope), and not an end in itself. So, that said, what else should I be doing to make this an effective traffic tool?
PS. I think you can put time-coded transcripts in Media RSS, which being XML would probably allow you to do cool things like closed captions via Flash in the video player... all from the same indexed source... foreign language translated subtitles...? :)
