Who doesn’t love watching Youtube videos from time to time?
Be it a silly cat video or an interesting documentary, there is an infinite number of things to watch on Youtube, and millions of people to watch them. Why not take advantage of that and create a WordPress site that brings together the best Youtube videos of your liking?
There are a number of reasons you might want to share Youtube videos on your site. They can be your own videos or those of others. Either way, video is fast becoming one of the most popular ways of sharing your views and interests.
Sharing your own Youtube videos on your WordPress site is a great way to get more traffic while increasing the view-count on your awesome videos. On the other hand, sharing those of others on your site is a great way of attracting more visitors and to keep them coming back for more.
You might even want to use Youtube videos to enhance your current site. Let’s say you’re running a popular news site that curates articles from various top sources. You can take it one step further by creating a video section that brings in the latest Youtube videos from your sources’ channels.
Let’s have a look at what it takes to set up a Youtube video-based WordPress site.
Step 1: Choose your subject
It’s important to know what topic you’ll be focusing on in your new site. If it’s an existing site that you’re enhancing with video content, then you’re already set. If you’re sharing your own videos from your own channel or those of others, you’re also ready to go.
Get a clear picture of what you’d like to achieve, and this will help you speed up the rest of the process. Planning is key to making sure you build your new website efficiently, and without compromising quality.
