In episode 164 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked about the best way to add a YouTube video to a website and maintain site speed.

The exact question was:

Is there a preferred way to add a video from our youtube channel to our website page and maintain site speed? My site pages load in around 1 second and I don't want that to slow to 2-3 seconds as a result of adding videos. My goals are to increase time on my site, have specific videos keep visitors on specific pages, increase views on the videos and improve website ranking by adding videos but not slow down page load times. Any suggestions? Thanks.
