Web users are flocking to videos like never before - watching hundreds of millions of hours of videos each day on YouTube alone. This makes getting your video seen an uphill battle.
One often overlooked tactic to YouTube optimization is including video captions. In fact, ReelSEO found that YouTube videos with captions are found 7 percent more often than those without captions. Knowing the importance of video captions, Rev.com, a provider of on-demand remote services, announced the general availability of its video captioning service. In beta for more than a year, Rev provides fast turnaround for video captioning.
“Captioning our online videos is one of the many tools we provide to make our content more accessible and engaging,” said Tony Alznauer, Post Production Supervisor at AOL. “Adding captions to videos has been a top request from our users; it helps us reach a larger audience with higher quality entertainment. We tried other service providers, but found Rev to be the fastest and most accurate, which enhances the viewing experience for our visitors.”
For the unfamiliar, Rev uses a distributed workforce comprised of vetted freelancers to deliver translation, transcription and now video captioning services to businesses.
