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.

Google will highlight the best video on the Webmaster Central YouTube channel and embed some in relevant Help Center articles, with full credit to the creators!

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.
