Avoid YouTube Suggested Videos on your Website

Creating videos can be very effective way to promote your business. Repeated studies have shown that websites and blogs with videos are likely to get more hits. Videos are also highly linkable and so visitors are more likely to share them. Uploading your videos to YouTube is a great idea since YouTube is also used as a very popular search engine.

It’s really simple to then embed the video onto your own website so it plays from within your page. But BEWARE! If you are not careful, when your video ends, visitors may be offered totally unrelated videos to watch next.
