pages don't rank if videos on the pages don't get indexed

 10:14 am on Apr 23, 2012 (gmt 0)

i am facing a very strange problem

i have a video site which has its own videos, i have also submitted video sitemap..... but i have noticed that my pages (after getting indexed by google) would not rank if videos on the pages doesnt get indexed.....

my competitors dont even have their own videos, they just embedd youtube videos and their pages get ranked for title....

but my pages even though they get indexed but if their videos dont get indexed then the pages dont rank

this is really strange and frustrating, what should i do?

Add some text as an explanation or intro to each video on each page. That way there is content to index as well as the video

a good paragraph is there before every video, but still the pages dont rank

Are you using YouTube to stream your videos?

Put a short "taster" video on youtube and embed it into the same page as your longer self hosted video..

Call them the "condensed" and the "full"..or the "30 second version" and the "5 minute version"..whatever ..

You don't notice Google ranking "daily motion" do you ? ..

So to rank your page...put out bait..where Google will bite..

Do you have an image on the page too? I see ranking problems with Google where when an image ranks the page will not rank well in natural search and/or when a page ranks for text it will not rank well in images.

i have youtube video version also on my page so i am baiting google...... but the pages dont rank unless the videos get indexed by google...


yes i have an image on every page which is actually picture/ poster of the programme/video...

but how could an image hurt a page from ranking?
