New Google Sitemap For Videos

Google just launched sitemaps for videos. The already have a nice FAQ setup for it too. This is going to help out a lot of webmasters who now can get their videos in the Google video search. Here's an example they provided for one: My funny video A really awesome video

I think this is going to create just about a whole new SEO stance. As users who are familiar with Youtube start searching other places for interesting videos, Google will be one of their favorite spots.

The are many video formats supported so far including: mpg,mpeg,mov,mp4,...So far though the information is minimal but I expect more updates soon. The process to submit one is also the same as a normal sitemap.

Thank You
