I am planned to add youtube videos on all of my hub ( already few hubs have it).
I have following questions regarding this
1) Is it good idea to put video capsule on all the hubs?
2) Does adding youtube videos helps to increase the hub search engine position?
3) What is the best place to put youtube video capsule?
4) Is it good to put title for video capsule? I mean will it improve search engine position of hub?
5) Does it make any difference if I put full width of the video capsule or half width of video capsule which is aligned to the right side edge of the hub?
A video can easily have the effect of keeping a reader on the hub for a longer period of time - something google likes to see.
I usually do not use titles; the video often has a title itself that is visible without playing it.
Personally, I dislike full width pics or videos. I align mine right.
As Wilderness stated, a video can help keep a reader on page longer and that is good.
You should most definitely use a title with any capsule you use. These are the areas where you can place keywords to help boost your page.
I find the best placement of a youtube capsule is full width after a text module especially if you hub is a how to or product hub. The size of the video really depends on your core audience. Younger viewers are likely to accept a small video where older viewers prefer large videos and are looking for detail.

In order to add your own video to a hub, do you have to join youtube first, upload your video, then put it in the hub capsule? I wish I could upload my videos like I upload my photos.

Hi, my lenses were imported yesterday and the lenses that had YouTube videos are not showing the videos on the Hub versions. The original video module title shows on the hub, but no video. I haven't checked...
