Findability is the most important factor to the success of any digital media, whether it be a corporate web site; a Facebook page or an online video series. With an ultra-bagillion web pages, a gazillion social media sites and bujeezillion minutes of online video uploaded each day, making it easy for your consumers to find your program is an absolute must.
