The best use of the WWBN system is to use Searchmercials. 

A Searchmercial is a video designed specifically to drive users to your landing pages upon conducting a directory search or search engine search.

The purpose of a searchmercial is to appeal to the users searching the web by providing the search results sought by the user in video format and providing the user with enough information to warrant the user to click and go to your landing page URL.

In essence WWBN treats all content as searchmercials, as we provide a link back to the originating site, but it would be considered best practice to purpose those videos to entice users to go to the landing page they describe or promote.

  • drive traffic to your content on a video share site
  • drive traffic to your website landing pages or other destinations
  • provide content, information, goods and/or services
Submit your video sitemap xml or mRSS to WWBN

Do you have video content on a video sharing site, online video service, your website or blog? 

If so, you can submit a mRSS (Media Really Simple Syndication) or Video Sitemap XML feed to the World Wide Broadcast Network Platform System. 

Feed Submissions | mRSS | Video Sitemap XML

Best Practices

 Feed Submissions To WWBN:

Although WWBN will read mRSS and Video Sitemap XML it is considered best practice to associate a video with a landing page URL. WWBN will take a feed and provide a video on search results that are associated with a URL. 

Recommended Use:

  • Create a searchmercial for each webpage you want to attract users to.
  • mRSS and Video Sitemap structures will enable you to associate a landing page URL and a video URL
mRSS

Please enter the full URL of the mRSS feed.
 (Example:  http://www.mywebsite.com/mrss.rss).

WWBN mRSS Feed Guidelines & Minimum Requirements

Create a searchmercial for each landing page URL you want to attract users to.

Create a <item>Searchmercial Submission</item>  for each searchmercial listing as described below

WWBN Submission-specific tag definitions elements.

Tag Required? Description
<link> Yes The <link> tag specifies the landing page (aka play page, shopping cart page, promotion page, company page, service page, product page, referrer page, associated page, etc.) for the searchmercial. When a user clicks on a searchmercial link on a search results page, they will be sent to this landing page.
<media:conten> Yes
 
Encapsulates the searchmercial information and metadata
 
<media:content ulr> Yes The URL to the video file.

emxample: http://www.site.com/landing_page_video.flv

Preferred Formats: flv,swf,mpg

<media:thumbnail url> Recommended A URL pointing to the URL for the listing thumbnail image file. This allows you to suggest the thumbnail you want displayed in search results, use it to attract users to view your searchmercial listing or a frame of the video content. The thumbnail image URL is optional, however, we strongly recommended that you provide a thumbnail URL to increase the likelihood of your video being included in the WWBN index.
 
<title> Yes The title of the listing. Limited to 80 characters.
 
<media:text> Yes The description of the listing. 255 characters.
 
<media:keywords> Yes
 
A keyword associated with the video. Keywords are generally very short descriptions of key concepts associated with a video or piece of content. A single video could have several tags, although it might belong to only one category. For example, a video about grilling food may belong in the Grilling category, but could be tagged "steak", "meat", "summer", and "outdoor".
 
<media:player url> No A URL pointing to a player for the video. The most common case for this is with Flash video where a user is wanting to brand or use a specific player. The URL of the SWF file that plays your video should be specified in <media:player url> and the URL of the FLV (actual video file) would be specified in <media:content ulr>.
<media:category> Recommended
 
The listing's category. For example, cooking. The value should be a string no longer than 256 characters. In general, categories are broad groupings of content by subject. Usually a listing will belong to a single category. For example, a site about cooking could have categories for Food, Broiling, Baking, and Grilling.  By suggesting a category for this listing, this will enable our content directory editors to expedite your listings classification within the WWBN directory.
 

When creating your mRSS Feed, keep in mind the following:

  • A mRSS Feed for WWBN should contain only landing page URLs that refer to the associated video content and related metadata.
     
  • Remember, the purpose of a searchmercial is to appeal to the users searching the web by providing the search results sought by the user in video format and providing the user with enough information to warrant the user to click and go to your landing page URL.
     
  • If WWBN cannot discover content at the video URLs or landing page URLs you provide, those records will be ignored by WWBNbot.
     
  • The URLs included in the Sitemap must have their robots.txt file set appropriately for User-agent "WWBNbot".

Best Practices For Submitting With Content WWBN

You can use video to drive traffic to your website or landing pages.

The best use of the WWBN system is to use Searchmercials.  A Searchmercial is a video designed specifically to drive users to your landing pages upon conducting a directory search or search engine search.

The purpose of a searchmercial is to appeal to the users searching the web by providing the search results sought by the user in video format and providing the user with enough information to warrant the user to click and go to your landing page URL.

Create a searchmercial for each webpage you want to attract users to.

Submit a searchmercial  listing for each webpage you want to attract users to.

Searchmercial Creative/Conceptual Suggestions:

1 Identify your goals

  • Establish specific goals and success metrics so you can choose creative messages, keywords, and landing pages that will help you achieve your search objectives.
  • Focus on relevance in everything you do, Make sure your video creative, landing page, and keywords connect people with exactly what they're looking for.
  • A thumbnail is valuable; don't waste it. It announces your listing, and plays a main role in a visitor's decision whether or not to click your searchmercial. Think of it as a banner and be creative.

2 Produce clear, compelling videos

  • Test multiple video creatives.
  • Be concise - and avoid repetition.
  • Mention the keyword in the video to show relevance.
  • Emphasize unique aspects of your landing's page information, product or service.
  • Include a strong call-to-action.

3 Choose useful destination pages

  • Send users to a destination (landing) page that relates to your videos. If your videos offers a free product, link directly to the page that clearly displays that product.
  • Target different destination pages with videos customized for those pages and use different keywords.
  • Make it easy and intuitive for prospects to become customers.

4 Track results frequently and modify your efforts (Registration Required)

  • Track your conversions. WWBN assigns a unique tracking URL to each of your videos and keywords to identify which of your customers clicked through to your site from your video. This will also tell you which ads and keywords converted the most clicks to sales.
  • If a keyword isn't performing well, consider changing your keyword matching to exact match, for example, or delete it. However, if a keyword is performing well, add more keywords like it.
  • Compare performance across multiple creatives per video group or campaign, and disable the ones that aren't doing as well.

You can optionally manage your media content by creating a WWBN passport account with the same exact email address used to submit your feed as the account username.  Once verified, you can then claim the videos associated with that email address for:

  • Pay Per Click bidding to rank your searchmercials
  • Context Ads - Contextual Searchmercials
  • Content Match Searchmercials
  • Video Players - Create your own broadcast network, add players, channels of distribution, accept advertisements and more!
  • Distribution - Distribute your content to other distribution channels.
  • Syndication - Earn syndication revenues from your content.
  • Programming - Create ShowTubes or AdTubes, schedule programming and more!
