Why waste time watching full-length videos on YouTube when you only need a couple of seconds worth of information? Video timestamps are helping users get straight to the content that they need without having to sift through an entire clip. They allow you to set a link to a specific point in the video.
Not only do video timestamps save you time, but they allow you to digest content in a more efficient way. This is a great way to promote key points as a content creator throughout your video and help you gain more exposure from searches.
