Why Embed Multiple YouTube Playlists in WordPress?

By embedding YouTube playlists with relevant videos, you can easily engage your website visitors and keep them on your site for longer.

As a bonus, you’ll get much better SEO if visitors spend more time on your site. As a result, you can rank higher in search results and reach more people.

To get more sales, you can embed YouTube playlists with reviews and testimonials of your products. This gives your online store an advantage over other platforms like Wix, Shopify, or Squarespace.

Now, let’s go ahead and see how you can share multiple YouTube playlists on your site.

Once you’re there, copy the playlist ID that’s at the end of the playlist URL.

Then open your website once again and paste the code you just copied in the Playlist ID field.

Plus, you get different feed templates that you can import to change your YouTube feed’s design.

To continue, select a template you like from the options below:

  • Default

  • Cards
  • List
  • Gallery
  • Latest Video

Once you’re happy with the videos on your YouTube playlist feed, click on Save.

After that, you’re ready for the final step, where you embed your YouTube playlists on your website.
