Get YouTube Videos In Your Google Product Search Feeds

The Google Base Blog announced they have added a new attribute for Google Product Search merchants to submit product videos for specific products. Google Product Search can now show videos from YouTube.

Here is a picture of the Nikon D90 with YouTube videos:

Google Base & YouTube Video Attribute

How do merchants get their videos to show up for Google Product Searches? When you submit your Google Base data feed, make sure to include the new youtube attribute. This will help Google determine if they should show a video for that product listing. Google said, “we can’t guarantee that submitted videos will be selected.” Either way, it is likely worth doing, if you have the videos to link to.

    It seems they are only allowing ‘review’ videos, but Google Base is for sellers of products. So I am a little confused.

    I work for a manufacturer that would be interested in having professional video’s featured, but they are neither reviews nor actually selling on Google Product Search. Any idea if they would potentially be accepted?
