Categorizing and tagging your videos makes it easier for other Vimeo users to find them in searches and on tag or Category pages.
Vimeo Categories are a great way to discover top-notch videos, creators, and collections related to your interests. Every video in these categories is hand-selected by our 100-percent-human Curation Team — take a look.
Categorizing your videos
Vimeo members who upload videos can select up to two categories and one sub-category that best describe their videos. This helps our system identify which videos might be a good fit for particular category pages.
Vimeo curators regularly refresh the content displayed and featured within the category, pulling from the large pool of videos that have been categorized by their creators.
Many more videos are uploaded and categorized than we can display on category pages, so please be aware that categorized videos won’t show up immediately and many will not ever appear on category pages. However, categorizing your videos still helps your videos become more discoverable to people who are searching for videos.
To add your video to a category, head to the "Basic" tab in your video settings and click the +Add to category link. In the module, select up to two categories and a sub-category for each, hit the "Submit" button, and then save your changes.
Vimeo curators occasionally update the collections featured under Categories. To increase your collection’s chance of showing up there, be sure to give your Group or Channel an appealing title and appearance and update it regularly with awesome content.
To follow a category, visit the category's page (e.g. https://vimeo.com/categories/animation) and click +Follow. If you follow a category, videos featured in that category will appear in your feed.
To follow a tag, visit vimeo.com/tag:XXXX (where XXXX is your tag term) and click +Follow. Once you follow a tag, every video with that tag will show up in your feed.
