I Don't Have The Time or Money To Mess With A Custom Thumbnail!
It's past the time of thinking custom thumbnails aren't important! It goes well beyond the SEO value of the thumb. There is also an associated value in the human connection. The following points remind us how...
- Humans like to connect with images.
- Thumbnails are images!
- Well executed custom thumbs are like a "Call To Action"
- Humans respond to CTA's
And if you haven't heard, optimizing your thumbnail is as important as optimizing meta data was back in 2012! It's the trigger that tells the search engine, "that's a good image"! (Tim Schmoyer at Video Creators has spent some time researching the subject. Watch his video for some enlightening info!)
