I was under the impression that now, post-Panda, that best practices included keeping a substantial amount of text content above the fold, as opposed to showing ads (obviously) or even a relatively large graphic (whose intent Google can't interpret and therefore does not value).
Any chance this text-is-king attitude doesn't apply embedded videos?
I'd like to show off the fact that my pages feature a video, yet after placing a skyscraper ad (to pay the bills) and the video, I don't have all that much space left for text. (The video is already shown at as small a size as I think is suitable.)
I'd love to learn that Google values video, but right now I anticipate that it too is simply considered "non-valued" space and therefore I should move the video to a place lower on the page?
