How to add the Google Widget Video Bar to your Webpage

Video Bar

  • By customizing the video bar you can decide whether you have a strip of YouTube videos displayed vertically or horizontally on your webpage or Blog.
  • You also decide what videos will appear there.
  • If you are using this widget and have Google ads on your page then you are only allowed to display videos that contain the same content as your webpage or blog.
  • This is easy to do as you will see with the Video Bar Wizard below.
  • How many videos do you want to display on your page and what size will they be?
  • You decide!

Click on the Video Bar Wizard

A direct link is given at the end of this article.

  • You can enter one tag or a number of tags separated by commas.
  • I find that one word tags work best.

Extremely informative hub. I've got clients asking me constantly to do youtube site updates and video embeds and the process is so simple. I should direct them here for all the info they need. Typically, we add playlists to a site and once we do that, the client can simply update their videos and add anything they want to the playlist. Using youtube really isn't difficult, but people don't take the time to read instructions. So all in all, this hub would be terrific and I will point some of my clients here in the future. Thanks again!
