Editing Video Metadata

What is the MetaData?

The metadata information contains descriptions and details about the data itself.

Metadata is important to improve your webpage’s SEO. This is because Search Engines use metadata and a combination of other factors to determine information about the data.

Search engines also check for the keywords used in metadata to determine the Search Engine Ranking of that particular webpage.

The description used in the metadata information is used by the Search Engine to display as the description for the web page.

Metadata is not just used for webpages but also for media contents like images, videos, audios, and other files. So it important to use proper title and description for your Cincopa media items.
