Product Gallery, Videos & SEO

The integration with the WooCommerce single product page lets you configure the main gallery area independently of the thumbnail slider. The default options should cover most requirements.

A useful option is to specify the aspect ratio of the images. This is great when a client has provided a series of product images that are a mixture of landscape and portrait formats.

Video Content

To add videos to your WooCommerce product galleries…

Make sure you enable Power Slider’s WooCommerce gallery integration in Settings > Power Slider. Make sure you enable Video Gallery Media and the Schema Object too.

Save those settings, then go to your Media Library and upload an image that represents the video you want to show – the video’s cover image. This can be a totally different aspect ratio to the actual video – you’ll probably want a square aspect ratio cover image for the gallery, even if the video is 16:9 widescreen.

Select your image in the Media Library and you’ll see some new settings on the side:

Media settings to enable video gallery items

All three of these are needed in order to create the VideoObject schema that Google picks up. Make sure the date is in the correct format too.

Save the image, then edit your product and add the image to its product gallery as normal:

That’s it – view your product and you should see that the video is playable now.

Test the Structured Data / Schema

It’s a good idea to check that you’re happy with the schema that’s been embedded before Google (re)indexes the page.

Go to the Structured Data Validation Tool: https://validator.schema.org/

Enter your product’s URL and check that the VideoObject schema is picked up correctly
