Captions and transcripts are frequently overlooked but are the most important SEO source documentation you can have on your YouTube video. Search engine "AI" isn't quite there yet as far as being able to correctly determine semantic context from a video (which it sees as a series of images and an audio stream). Add those captions and transcripts!

I'm always conflicted when it comes to using background images and video in content strips on a website. On the one hand, it's very "noisy" when presenting text on top of it. On the other hand, it really does grab one's attention and draws you into the page. Clients seem to really love it, too, because it's part of the trend they see happening on lots of other sites.

I've tried tons of free website hosting services, both out of curiosity and when helping my clients. Trust me when I tell you that you get what you pay for. Pay a few dollars a month, even for the discount hosting, and you'll get more value from that than from "free" hosting.

I love this! I've now bookmarked it for when my clients hit me with complex design challenges and I need some inspiration.

If you're hosting your website on Wordpress, a great plugin to have is Yoast's Wordpress SEO plugin. I've been using it for years and it really makes the task of writing and optimizing almost not a "task" at all. You just remember to fill in a few extra fields before you publish a post. There's page analyzer tab you can also check to see the weaknesses and strengths of your post relative to best SEO practices. https://yoast.com/wordpress/plugins/seo/
