Hi All,

Please any body help, I am facing a problem, when we search our website video links on google it showing me the normal page on google result, Google is not picking our video thumbnail to show on SERP.

I have already implemented schema and other thing. (VideoObject Schema, Breadcrumb schema)

Please help me out to do that.

Hi naveen12 and welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com]

It's Google's YouTube video itself (or another video service) that gets thumbnailed, not your webpage. Nothing you can do to affect that. Why does Google Search choose some videos and not others? That's the real question.

To get a webpage thumbnailed, use OG Code [ogp.me]

Then you wait & hope Mediapartners-Google will add the thumbnail to Google SERP.
