Google Video Schema Markup Generator For Blogger

 Get videos on Google with schema markup

Google Search is an entry point for people to discover and watch videos. While Google tries to automatically understand details about your video, you can explicitly provide information, such as the description, thumbnail URL, upload date, and duration, by marking up your video with VideoObject. Videos can appear in Google Search results, video search results, Google Images, and Google Discover.

Based on how you mark up your content, your videos may also be eligible for the following video enhancements:

Video enhancements

LIVE badge: Get a LIVE badge added to your video by marking your video with BroadcastEvent. The LIVE badge can be applied to any public video that is live-streamed for any length of time. Here are a few examples:

  • Sporting events
  • Awards shows
  • Influencer videos
  • Live streaming video games

Make sure you follow the LIVE badge guidelines and use the Indexing API to make sure Google crawls your page at the right time.

Home activities: Help people find activities to do at home. When people search for activities to do at home, videos and online events appear in an immersive rich result. By adding Video structured data, your videos may already be eligible for this rich result, with no additional steps needed.

Key moments

The key moments feature is a way for users to navigate video segments like chapters in a book, which can help users engage more deeply with your content. Google Search tries to automatically detect the segments in your video and show key moments to users, without any effort on your part. Alternatively, you can manually tell Google about the important points of your video. We will prioritize key moments set by you, either through structured data or the YouTube description.

  • If your video is hosted on your web page, there are two ways that you can enable key moments:
    • Clip structured data: Specify the exact start and end point to each segment, and what label to display for each segment.
    • SeekToAction structured data: Tell Google where timestamps typically go in your URL structure, so that Google can automatically identify key moments and link users to those points within the video.
  • If your video is hosted on YouTube, you can specify the exact timestamps and labels in the video description on YouTube. Check out the best practices for marking timestamps in YouTube descriptions.
To opt out of the key moments feature completely (including any efforts Google may make to show key moments automatically for your video), use the nosnippet meta tag.

Video host carousel (limited access): Enable users to explore your video gallery pages by adding ItemList structured data.

Learning Video: Help students and teachers find your educational videos by adding Learning Video structured data. For more information about feature availability, guidelines, and examples, refer to the Learning Video documentation.

How to add structured data

Structured data is a standardized format for providing information about a page and classifying the page content. If you're new to structured data, you can learn more about how structured data works.

Here's an overview of how to build, test, and release structured data. For a step-by-step guide on how to add structured data to a web page, check out the structured data codelab.

  1. Follow the guidelines.
  2. Validate your code using the Rich Results Test.
  3. Deploy a few pages that include your structured data and use the URL Inspection tool to test how Google sees the page. Be sure that your page is accessible to Google and not blocked by a robots.txt file, the noindex tag, or login requirements. If the page looks okay, you can ask Google to recrawl your URLs.
  4. Add the required properties. Based on the format you're using, learn where to insert structured data on the page.
  5. To keep Google informed of future changes, we recommend that you submit a sitemap. You can automate this with the Search Console Sitemap API.
