Creating keyword navigation menus


Keyword navigation menus allow administrators to make selected keywords stand out by displaying them at the top of the Explore page. The action of a keyword menu is the same as any other keyword; it filters for a corresponding set of content. However, keyword menus can be multilevel; further filters can be applied to the results of the first filter.

Keyword menus can also simplify keyword filter choices because only keywords relevant to the current video selection are displayed: Start a search by using keyword menus but refine it using keyword filters

Users of tagging are already familiar with keyword use - in the context of describing events. Event keywords are also searchable and filterable plus they can be added to Navigation Menus, as shown in the following video

To better understand how keyword menus aid content navigation, have a look at Dartfish's See, Learn, Succeed channel where menus are used to guide users to different types of content.

 

Your questions answered

Can I add a single keyword to a navigation menu?

No; keyword groups must always be used - even if the group only contains one keyword! A good way to take your audience directly to a specific set of content, is the home page headline.
