Visitors can simply type in a location (e.g. “Golden Gate Bridge”) and view live streams from (or at least close to) that location:


Here are a few examples of live webcam feeds:

Note: Although the examples above may be located in particularly popular locations (or of world famous landmarks), it’s important to note that your website doesn’t have to be located in a particular interesting/exotic location to submit your feed.

There are plenty of live streams of car parks (view), motorways (view), and other relatively boring locations.

By setting up a live stream and adding it to webcam directories, you can build a few extra (and easy) links to your site.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Set-up a webcam
  2. Create a webcam page on your website
  3. Add the link to webcam directories

First, you’re going to need to purchase a webcam.

Amazon is the best place to search for one of these:


Note: You also need someone technical to set the webcam up as a 24/7 live stream, which can be costly.

Next, add a page to your website that will display the live stream.

Here’s an example of what it might look like:


Finally, you need to add your page to your chosen webcam directory.
