Google Adds Video Sitemaps Errors To Google Webmaster Tools

Aug 9, 2010 - 7:54 am 0 by

Google has been explaining to us recently that videos and video sitemaps will be something they are focusing a lot of effort on over the rest of this year. Matt Cutts has recommended SEOs focus a bit more on their video sitemaps efforts because of this change.

Over the weekend, Google has added a "Video Sitemaps" section under Google Webmaster Tools's "Lab" section. When you access it, it tells you:

Video Sitemaps Errors. We are constantly updating our data, so please keep checking back with us to make sure your sitemaps are healthy.

Currently, for all my Sitemap feeds in this report, I see "No information found." I honestly do not see how this differs from the "Sitemaps" under "Site configuration," where you can learn more about your Sitemaps errors there. But Google has added a special Video Sitemaps page to the Labs section for a reason.

What can we take away from this?

(1) Video Sitemaps are becoming more and more important. (2) Something different will be shown here, compared to the Sitemaps section under Site configuration.

Here is a picture of what I have:
