If you’re embedding a 3rd party chart, video, or document, you might have noticed a complete lack of a feature that (I think) pretty much every SEO would go crazy for.

The embeddable object then contains a link back to both the 3rd party host and the originating content source, just like this:
If you’re a 3rd party embeddable content provider, you should definitely think about building this feature – SEO people would swarm to you in droves!
