If you host your own videos then you will definitely appreciate this one. At the end of each video YouTube shows related videos which will almost certainly direct your visitors away from your site. If you want to keep them on your site and limit any kind of distraction, then disable the related videos by changing the embed code as follows:

[src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/T0-2lzA7_Cg”]

becomes

[src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/T0-2lzA7_Cg?rel=0″]
