Google has found the addition of timestamps for certain types of YouTube videos in search results.
Time stamps allow users to go directly to key moments in a video without viewing content that they are not interested in. This news will be useful for SMM and SEO professionals.
This feature of bookmarking videos was first reported to Android Police, which says that it appears in the Google application when searching instructional videos with instructions.
The time stamps are displayed under the thumbnail video in Google search results, allowing users to open videos in the most relevant part of them.
Not everyone can see this. Sources tell the Android police that the video's timestamps in search results appear in the latest beta version of the Google app.
It seems that Google retrieves time stamp information directly from the video description. Therefore, it is so important for SMM and SEO to pay great attention to the description under the video.
Here is an example of one of the videos that showed timestamps in search results:
The time stamps match the time stamps displayed in the search results, according to the screenshot provided by Android Police.
This can be a very useful feature for search engines, especially in the modern world of monetization, where the length of a video on YouTube is increased to accommodate more commercials.
Time stamps in search results allow users to immediately access the information they need without having to watch an hour-long video on YouTube.
At the same time, it can be argued that Google "takes away" the time of viewing the video, offering users to go to certain parts, and the time of viewing is an indicator of involvement.
We will see if this feature will become permanent in the search results when the Google app releases its next public update.
