Why are my videos not showing up in the Google search results?

Last update: 23 June, 2016

It can take more than two weeks for the videos to show up in the Google search results. This depends on how often Google spiders your website. So don’t expect the search results to change in a day, or even a week. Give it some time.

Additionally, Google displays video snippets under the video search tab, not the general search tab. As you have probably noticed, there are exceptions to this rule. For example, you may see video snippets in the general search from domains like youtube.com and vimeo.com. Ultimately, Google determines whether they show video snippets for your domain but you can increase your chances of having video snippets by following Google’s best practices for videos.
