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 where you list out the webpages of your site that 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.
