One trend that has become increasingly popular is that EzineArticles members will use the link in their resource box to deliver one or more video’s..or a page in their website that shows videos.
As you may know, our editorial review team surfs every link in every article you submit — checking for quality, dead links, and anything that may harm or deliver our readers to an unpleasant experience.
With the length of many videos in the 4-20+ minute range each, we don’t have the resources to check every video for quality content — and therefore we’ve decided to operate on gut-feel based on our perception of the intent of the member and his or her video’s intent. This means we’ll probably make mistakes and error on the side of conservative caution when reviewing video’s.
One more word of caution when using articles to promote videos: Think very long-term. Article writing & marketing is not a short-term strategy and you should think in advance of your readership in 3-10 years from now…will they still have a positive experience when they surf your site?
