I want to show you an answer to a question that I get asked a lot, and that is how do I stop my YouTube videos from displaying my competitors videos at the end of my video. If you embed a YouTube video on your website, at the end of the video, Youtube says, “You might like some of these other videos.” Some of them might be yours. Some of them might be people you don’t know. Some of them might be your competitors. You want to have control of that. I opt to always block that option because if I want them to see another one of my videos, I’ll put that somewhere in the video itself.
Here’s what you need to do. It’s a little buried now. YouTube buried this about a year or more ago. In the video I show you what you need to do. You need to go to the video in question and go to share and then click embed. Remember, this is happening when it’s embedded. Now, you need to show more and scroll down and you’ll see a box, “show suggested videos when the video finishes.” You need to uncheck that box. If you uncheck that box, it will play a video when you embed it on your website but it will not show related videos when your video is over. Simple when you know how to do it, but I can’t even tell you how much time people have spent trying to find that little option, so that’s why I created this social media quick tip here for you today.
