In addition to the default Wordpress embedding, you can embed previews of any article, content from Gfycat, Twitch, Etsy, Storify, Quora, Google Maps, and many more. Check out our growing list of 500+ providers. The Embedly embeds also include title and description information for better SEO.
Match your posts with readers who will love them. After your readers watch a video, show them more of your posts that they would like. Recommendations are built-into video embeds, and are served based on the viewer and the content of the post. Embedly is the only plugin that provides targeted social video recommendations for YouTube, Vimeo, Vine, and Instagram.
All embeds are responsive for the most beautiful fit possible, and you can also customize the embeds. The Embedly plugin allows you to assign the width and alignment of embeds, and includes styling options for darker themes.
Social buttons makes it easier for readers to share your post right from your embeds. When they watch your video and love it, they can share it immediately. These can be turned on or off.
Head to the WordPress Plugin Store in your Wordpress Dashboard and search for Embedly. Download that plugin.
After that, you will see options to either sign in with Embedly or sign up for an Embedly account. If you have an account, connect it and you’re set to start embedding. If you’re new, you’ll be taken through a quick sign up session and redirected back to the plugin.
Once the plugin is installed, you’re all signed in, the only thing left to do is start blogging. Paste a URL and watch your embed magically appear in the editor. The preview in the editor will not show up for WP 3.9 and below, but will still embed in the post..
Publish your post. You will see your new embed there, and can start watching analytics on the video embeds in the Embedly plugin dashboard.
