The Tanabata Star Festival is an incredibly popular festival in Japan and this year it’s made its way to orkut as well. Although many celebrations now take place in July and early August, traditionally the festival has been celebrated on the 7th day of the 7th month of the lunar calendar year (which is actually today, August 16th).
During the festival, you can see colorful fabrics in the streets and large bamboo poles decorated with paper ornaments symbolizing the stars. We made our own ornament just for orkut and wanted to share it with you:
Folkloric performances, like Taiko drumming, dancing and concerts are all a part of what makes the festival so special. We hope you enjoy (or have already enjoyed), the festivities this year!
If you want to add video information to a Sitemap or mRSS feed you must specify the location of the video. This means you must include one of two tags, either the video:player_loc or video:content_loc. In the case of an mRSS feed, these equivalent tags are media:player or media:content, respectively. We need this information to verify that there is actually a live video on your landing page and to extract metadata and signals from the video bytes for ranking. If one of these tags is not included we will not be able to verify the video and your Sitemap/mRSS feed will not be crawled. To reduce confusion, here is some more detail about these elements.
Video Locations Defined
Player Location/URL: the player (e.g., .swf) URL with corresponding arguments that load and play the actual video.
Content Location/URL: the actual raw video bytes (e.g., .flv, .avi) containing the video content.
One of either the player video:player_loc or content video:content_loc location is required. However, we strongly suggest you provide both, as they each serve distinct purposes: player location is primarily used to help verify that a video exists on the page, and content location helps us extract more signals and metadata to accurately rank your videos.
URL extensions at a glance:
The playpage URL
The SWF URL
The FLV or other raw video URL
NOTE: All URLs should be unique (every URL in your entire Video Sitemap and mRSS feed should be unique)
If you would like to better ensure that only Googlebot accesses your content, you can perform a reverse DNS lookup.
