YouTube Cards: How to add Cards to your videos




YouTube Cards – a more refined version of annotations – add another layer of interactivity to your videos and are a great way to drive traffic to your profile. They are displayable on both mobile and desktop, and you can include custom images, titles and text. These Cards are split into six categories including videos, playlists, associated websites and merchandise. The Card will always be on show through an information button in the top right hand corner of your video, and you can add up to five Cards. No apps to install, no messing about – it’s easy!
