I posted this in the offline section and thought I'd extract a little bit of it and add it over here!

*****NEWSFLASH****** Getting Started - - What is this? This is in addition to video sitemaps and Google has just said that they will rank videos in the serps a lot better when you use what we call "markups" from the website above!

"Your web pages have an underlying meaning that people understand when they read the web pages. But search engines have a limited understanding of what is being discussed on those pages. By adding additional tags to the HTML of your web pages--tags that say, "Hey search engine, this information describes this specific movie, or place, or person, or video"--you can help search engines and other applications better understand your content and display it in a useful, relevant way. Microdata is a set of tags, introduced with HTML5, that allows you to do this."

Ok, let's get to work........

1. Go to Getting Started - to get a feel of what I'm talking about.
2. VideoObject -
3. scroll to the bottom of the page to see the new code that Google now recognises to populate their listings with videos embeded on your website.
4. If you haven't got a clue in the world what it is I'm blabbing on about, go ahead and go to the programmer section in "warriors for hire" and get them to implement this new microdata that Google is using.

They'll probably be a wordpress plugin/script coming out soon, but why not get the fast mover advantage and start implementing this now!
