How does WPSSO Core find / detect / select videos?

Provided you are using the WPSSO Core Pro version (video detection modules are not included in the WPSSO Core Free version), videos from SlideShare, Vimeo, Wistia, and YouTube will be detected automatically from the following locations:

  1. A video entered in a theme or plugin custom field defined under the SSO > Advanced > Custom Meta > “Video Embed HTML Custom Field” or “Video URL Custom Field” options.
  2. A video entered in the custom Social and Search Optimization metabox “Video Embed HTML” or “Video URL” options.
  3. Embedded video HTML in your post / page content text or from a shortcode in your content text.

WPSSO Core does not consider simple URL links to videos to be an important / integral part of your content (like an embedded video). If you’d like WPSSO Core to consider video links as equal to embedded videos, you must use a custom WPSSO Core content filter like this one.
