Google has come up with a very innovative way to know how do real-life webmasters use Webmaster Tools! Google thinks this would be a great way to showcase some real-life examples for the rest of the webmaster community at Google Webmaster Central. All that the search engine is urging webmasters to create a video that tells their story and upload the video via the gadget in Help Center.
To share stories, all you need to make a video, upload it to YouTube, then go to Google's Help Center and submit your video via Help Center gadget. For more information see full guidelines. Below are a few key points you need to remember:
- Keep the video short; 3-5 minutes is ideal. Think small: a short video is a good way to showcase your use of – for example – Top Search Queries, but not long enough to highlight your whole SEO strategy.
- Focus on a real-life example of how you used a particular feature. For example, you could show how you used link data to research your brand, or crawl errors to diagnose problems with your site structure. Do you have a great tip or recommendation?
- Upload your video before September 30.
- White hats are recommended. They show up better on screen.
