How to Add Chapters to Your Videos Using Timestamps

YouTube’s Chapters feature allows you to easily create shortcut links to specific timecodes within your videos, not only improving the navigation experience for your viewers but also maximizing your video SEO and keywords on both YouTube and Google!

If you’ve seen timestamps in a YouTube video description before, chances are you’re already aware how they allow viewers to jump to specific topics or sections within your video at the click of a button… But did you know those timestamps are also indexed by Google, and presented in Google search results?

This provides an awesome opportunity to include specific keywords relating to the content at specific timecodes in your video, and potentially rank those timecodes in Google search results.

In this video, we’ll show you how to add YouTube chapters, and key things to keep in mind to maximize your video SEO while doing it!
