I want to know if my site is getting marked as the location for the original content I am creating for it.
I am making new video content for my word press website. I post the video to my you tube account first and then embed that video to a new post I create on my site. Also, I add a link to my websites homepage in the description of the video.
The youtube account I am using is not linked to the company Google+ page or company gmails. It is independent of them so this may be hurting me in terms of classifying my site as the original source.
I then share my video through many sites and forums that are applicable to my indusrty in an attempt to give my video more authority.
Is this the best way to share videos and help my websites SEO? Is my site being tagged as the original source of the content?
I`ve tried using meta tags like the "originalcontent" one, but I can not figure out how to put it into my site and the plugins aren`t really helping. Also, I keep reading that those are useless even though it may be very applicable for this situation.
