Sometimes a friend will send me links to something delightful on YouTube — funny animals, home movies to popular songs and more. However, I have mostly ignored it as a major source of entertainment.
Recently, I began receiving emails (and seeing websites) that had YouTube videos embedded. So, I investigated — and Lo!
There are marvelous opportunities for farmers on YouTube.
Embedding video in your website (on the server where you site is hosted) can significantly drag down bandwidth, especially when it’s the season when you website is getting the highest traffic. But video clips are the hottest thing on a website, in terms of interactivity and visualization.
To optimize opportunities and minimize exposure — sign up for a YouTube account of your own! Post your own videos online and link to them from your website. And … you can list keywords about your farm in each of your videos that will be searchable from within YouTube.
