Where should I embed my video to maximize earnings and SEO?

You have great video content — the question is, where’s the best place to embed your video within your post for SEO, maximum ad revenue, and a great reader experience?

Great news! AdThrive video embeds already generate the crucial video schema needed for search engines to gather information about your video. 

When you include both a video title and detailed description upon upload, your AdThrive video player metadata is optimized for search engines!

Optimize your video placement for both earnings and SEO

Use our “optimized” option for your Sticky Related videos

Sticky videos have higher earning potential so we always recommend using this option as much as possible. Set your defaults so your embedded videos are sticky and optimized:


Choosing the “optimized” option allows our ad code to take care of both SEO and higher earnings in a one-stop-shop! 

After you enable this option:

  1. You can put the embed code anywhere you want in your post, and our ad code will automatically place the player in the ideal earning location.
  2. If you have a recipe card, you can place your embed code within the card itself and our ad code will move the video up to maximize earnings while SEO information is stored within the card. 

You can always override the setting for a specific video if you'd like.

Place Sticky Related videos near the top of your post

If you prefer to use the “Control” option so that your sticky video appears exactly where you place the embed code, we suggest embedding the video as high as possible within your post, so it has more time on page after a reader scrolls past it. 

We recommend embedding within the top 50% of the post for the highest earning potential.

Run the Sticky Playlist Player on posts with a Stationary Related video

If you embed a stationary video player, make sure you run the Sticky Playlist Player on that post too, so you don't miss out on high ad earnings!

For example, you could embed the Stationary Related video in your recipe card, plus enable the Sticky Playlist Player on that page, so you earn from video ads as your reader scrolls.

Encourage clicks on your Stationary Related videos

Stationary videos earn when the reader clicks to play the video, so place the stationary video wherever you think readers will be most likely to watch. 

Upload an engaging thumbnail image and encourage the reader to click to watch the video in your post copy.

Use Google Search Console to verify your videos are set up correctly

You can easily verify that Google is successfully able to "see" your Related videos by logging in to your Google Search Console account and navigating to Enhancements > Videos.
