Not only are video results increasingly common in Google's search results, but your videos stand a much better chance than your text pages of being shown on the first results page. On the keywords for which Google offers video results, we found an average of 16,000 videos vying to appear on results pages containing an average of 1.5 video results -- giving each video about an 11,000-to-1 chance of making it onto the first page of results
any thoughts ?
I'm all for intelligent use of video, but not just for getting traffic - it needs to be part of a well planned strategy. Otherwise it's just info-tainment.
From Blog SPAM to Video SPAM...
Good luck, Mr. Matt Cutts, shutting it down...
At least there's some kind of voting on YouTube Videos that can be used to determine value or guard from spam. Although that can be manipulated.
