Google Video

Last year, Google introduced ‘ Google Video Search ‘ and earlier this year we saw these video’s appearing in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages ).

If you perform a search for ‘Michael Jordon’ in Google, you will be presented with results similar to the following screen capture


People can include video on their websites for all kinds of reasons; information, selling a product, tutorials, advertisements etc.

Videos on your website can act as link bait, viral and social media marketing. If users find your video useful, they may link to it. If you use keywords in the title of your video, you could find yourself with targetted links pointing back to your website. This in turn will help with your overall search engine rankings for the keyphrases you wish to show up for in the SERPs.

When adding video’s on your website remember to also submit them to ‘Google Video’ as well as YouTube.
