Google Video is a robust and comprehensive indexing of available videos on Internet. Using this Google video you can efficiently search and find movie clips, popular TV shows, educational documentaries and many more other videos. Using video search in Google Video is more effective ways to find the exact type of video you need than to search for videos in normal Google search. In this hub, I will explain and show how to use Google video search and how to upload your video in Google video.

For taking advantage of the Google video, does not search video with normal Google search rather search the video at: Google Videos

How to use Google Video

For using Google video search option just go at- then type the search term. For example you want to find video related to football genius Maradona, just type maradona or title: maradona and click the “search” button, Google will return you all the maradon related video with a few seconds only. You are want to search with more specific information about a video like its size, upload date, language, duration, quality of video then it is better to user the advanced video search technique. Just below the “search” button you will see an option called “advance search”, just click it to start an advanced search.

Copyright issues of Google Video

Google videos are basically video archive of all the videos available in Internet. Though Google video upload is no longer possible, yet YouTube is world’s most popular video sharing sites, owned by Google and since most of its videos are shared by people Google does not grant anyone any permission on the use of these videos except the fact that you can only view these videos on web. If you want to use any of the video for your personal use it is advisable the you seek permission to the owner of the video.

Can I upload any video to Google Video?

Google no longer offer video upload facility to their Google video. They want to concentrate more on video search technology so as users can find the best quality video with their search facility and thus enable everyone to search video with ease available across the web. But if you have a Google account you can upload your video to other Google video uploading service like YouTube or Piscasa

Google Video Search Technology

Google vireo spider not only crawls YouTube and Google video, but the entire world wide web to make a compressive list of available videos. Though Google spider cannot read the content of the video, but it is smart enough to determine the theme of a video by analyzing the texts of the video page, its caption, titles and many more. So, if you have a video in your website and you want it to index accurately by Google video then use proper video caption to describe the content of the video. Though Google’s own YouTube has millions of video in its database, yet Google algorithm does not bias toward indexing and ranking any video uploaded in any site. Google video search algorithm also take into account of the number of hits, quality and rating of a video when indexing it and accordingly show the video search result when you look for a video in Google

Video Sitemap

If you have a website with lots of video and want it to be included into Google vide database then it is better to let Google know about your videos by making a video site map. All the required information how to make a video site map can be found at: Video Sitemap.

Normally, Google crawls for video in any new site and it is possible that without submitting a video sitemap your videos are likely to be included in Google video archive. But one thing to remember when adding video to your site- Google bot can read only video format in, .mpeg, .mpg, .mov, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .ra, .ram, .mp4, .m4v, .rm, .swf, .flv,

when i searched for videos related to Hilary Duff in Google video it returned the relevant best quality video by searching the entire web, not to mention most of the best quality videos were found in Youtube.

      When I want information I find it much easier to get it from a video rather than reading lots of words.

      Video has helped my small business tremendously. It is a true way of using technology to infuse a human element - who are the people - an eye to eye account.

      I believe video will become an even greater part of our lives in the future.

      Using and commenting more on video is one of my goals for 2011. Thank you very much.
