I am writing from Webmaster World in sin city (Las Vegas). As I drink down my delicious english breakfast tea I am reminded at just how many people are behind a little something called SEO (Search Engine Optimization). To those who are unfamiliar with SEO- Allow me to give you the 15 second rundown... when a user types in a search term- SEO allows for the user to be connected with the proper destination on the web (based on many things, of course). Such as- when a user goes to Google and types in online video- you will be connected to the best and most relevant sites for online video (which, OVGuide.com is consistently in the top 3, naturally :-) When a website is designed with SEO in mind- it tends to have a better chance at being found in organic (non-paid) search!
So- what's new in the world of online video today? Let's see...If you are following the way in which more and more "what are/were network series" are finding their way onto the internet for free then you should note that MSN is starting to beef up its arsenal of Arrested Development episodes (which, excites me- because it is one of my favorite shows!)
From an OVGuide.com front- we are busy toiling away at several new sites features! I don't want to give away toooo too many- but, let's just say MY OVGuide is in for some major change! You can also expect to be able to incorporate more of your everyday social networking applications with your OVG experience- including being able to share your top movies sites (or even the lists our editor's put out) Also- we are going to be working on a version of our site that will feature the best online video sites for your wireless devices (IPhone, ITouch, as well as other cellular phones). The greatest strength we have in the wireless space- is that we don't have to work with the carriers- based on our open platform.
I also smell a holiday theme in the air... (mainly the smell of pine-sol and fallen leaves)
Be sure to check out our site everyday- and keep reading the blog!
Now... time to get back to the blackjack... I mean... the conference :-)
It certainly looks like MTV realizes that users demand content through a variety of mediums. Hitting your audience from various angles helps everyone win! From an OVG perspective: This is great! We are the biggest advocates of showing people ALL available options when it comes to online video- and being able to help connect our users with fabulous South Park episodes- is certainly in line with what we are up to... one small piece of our puzzle... but, every piece is important to us :-)
My only question is... What does "every clip of every episode" mean?
What on earth have we been up to here at OVG? The short answer is.. lots! The team has worked very hard to present you with a new & highly functional complete & comprehensive guide to online video. We have emerged as the "source" of online video sites. We have taken a road that nobody else in the game has- and we are truly excited that our users are so excited about our guide! In the past few months we have gone from off the charts, to one of the most visited entertainment websites! In this blog you will find us letting you know more about OVGuide.com- as well as speaking out to the world in the area we know best- online video! Our editorial team is hard at work adding many sites to the guide each week- and our video search currently indexes only the best sites for online video- making it truly the best video search engine on the web! Don't rely on one source for your online videos- focus on "The Source" for the best online videos :-)
