    Good day, I am using the most recent version of Enfold and the most recent version of WordPress and all my plugins are up to date.

    I just received an email from Google Search Console saying there’s a new reason preventing my videos from being indexed. When I log into my Google Search Console and investigate further, it says there’s a problem on my website with the “Video outside the viewport.

    The description Google gives on its website is:
    “The video must appear in the viewport when loading the page to be considered for indexing. Move the video so that the entire video is inside the renderable area of the page and seen when the page loads. The videos on these pages aren’t indexed or served on Google as video results.”

    I’m using your Avia Layout Builder and just basic layout options for 1 column or 2 columns, and your basic video media element for a video I have on my YouTube channel. On some pages I have videos in one column, and on some pages, I have videos in a 1/2 column. Both pages where I have a video in either 1 column or in a 1/2 column are getting flagged by Google saying that the video is outside the viewport, and as a result, Google is not indexing the video, which is very important to my client.

    What should I do to ensure the videos are not outside the viewport to ensure Google indexes them properly? Like I said, I’m using very basic elements of your Avia Layout Builder. I’m not doing anything complex or using any custom code, I’m using 1 or 2 column layouts and just dragging the video media element inside them.

    I included a few pages that Google said have the “video outside the viewport” in the private section of this message.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Hey santanin,
    Thanks for the links, your videos are near the bottom of the pages and “outside the viewport” on page load, to correct you will need to place the videos at the top of the page so they are seen on page load.

    Best regards,
