    Hi,

    I'm trying out making a video sitemap etc. I have never done this before and i'm using a plugin that create the sitemap.

    The video is on youtube but won't this decrease people clicking on my site in the SERPS? Do I have to host the video myself to get the clickthrough but the my bandwidth increases?

    I'm trying to get my videos into the universal search on google and others but i'm pretty stuck

    Any help?

    I'd be interested in an educated answer to these questions as well.

    Obviously if you host a video you've created on youtube, they end up with the traffic and that's undesireable. You don't want to rely on them clicking a link in your description.

    So, you host it yourself... bandwidth increases seem worth it, but yea---how exactly do you rank a video so that it gets seen? Rank the page with the video and it may come along?
