Video optimization is one of the great ways to get your site into blended search results such as Google Universal Search results. The one thing to keep in mind is to optimize your videos so that they will be relevant to a user's query. If you have a video on eye tracking make sure that after you submit your video it is optimized and tagged for "eye tracking" and other eye -tracking related phrases.
So then that brings us to the next question. Where Should I Submit my Videos? Well currently some of our favorite video aggregator sites to submit to are:
YouTube - one of the most popular online video destinations out there right now.
Meta Cafe - Another popular video sharing site, where it is extremely easy to submit video to.
Yahoo! Video - as Yahoo begins to display more blended search results, having optimized video in Yahoo may prove beneficial.
Google Video - ditto for Google.
Veoh.com - Veoh.com is an advanced video hosting and sharing site with over 70,000 content publishers.
