Tech Tip: Embed a YouTube Video on Your WordPress Site

Jan 3, 2019 | Tech Tip

Did you know you should never host video on your own website?

Last week I showed you how to embed a Vimeo video on your site. This week, I’ll explain how to embed a video hosted on YouTube on your WordPress site.

It’s important to embed the video on your site rather than providing a link to YouTube so that viewers aren’t distracted by other people’s videos. By embedding it on your site, you control the user experience and ensure that you are keeping your viewers focused on your online business. If you want people to be able to find your videos, and find you and your business, YouTube may be a better option than other services because the search results come up in Google.
