Video Sitemaps on RebelMouse

Optimize your video content for search

RebelMouse supports and encourages video sitemaps for every web property we power. We support video sitemaps for JW Player and YouTube out of the box.

A sitemap is a file that lists out the webpages of your site and tells Google and other search engines about the organization of your content. A video sitemap is simply an extension of this function.

According to Google, a video sitemap is a great way to help the search engine understand more about your video content that might not always be discovered through its crawling mechanisms. This is particularly useful for recently published video content because it will allow Google to crawl it quickly.

Here's an example of a video sitemap on RebelMouse-powered Big Think.

To find the video sitemap for your site, append /sitemap_video.xml to your domain. Click on the following for more information on how to set up a video sitemap so Google can swiftly find your video embeds: JW Player, YouTube. And click here to review Google's own documentation on how to implement a video sitemap. Be sure to follow Google's best practices for video to ensure your content is optimized for search.

If you have any questions about video sitemaps, email support@rebelmouse.com, or talk to your account manager.

The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.
