Captions Boost Video SEO
Many people assume that the sole purpose of captions is accessibility; however captions and transcripts provide numerous other benefits. For marketers, the greatest advantage is that captions significantly boost your video SEO. Because Google can't watch a video, the only information it can crawl is the text associated with your video. Without transcripts and captions, your video's SEO and keyword depth are minimal.
Recent studies conducted by 3Play Media with Discovery Digital Networks, SafeNet, and This American Life have proven that adding closed captions and transcripts to videos increases search traffic, views, search rank, and user engagement. Discovery Digital Networks even found that the largest increase in views (13.48%) occurred in the first 2 weeks of adding captions, which demonstrates the immediate impact of captions on video SEO.
