1. Get more traffic, leads and sales

Once a YouTube video gains first page rankings on Google the traffic quickly increases because more eyeballs get to view it. If you capture your viewers contact information by redirecting them to an opt-in landing page you’ll build a large list of leads. As your list grows so will your sales.

2. Provides content that search engines love

Google includes videos and images on it’s results pages. If you create a captivating thumbnail image for your video it will stand out from all the others results listed on the page.

3. Helps rank web pages

One of the main ranking factors for web pages is how long a visitor remains on your page. Adding a video increases the likelihood your video will be watched all the way through instead of simply scanning the page content.

4. Build your brand

Videos engage people’s senses more than boring text through sight and sound. Video enables you to create tutorials, conduct interviews or demonstrate how a product works.

5. Grab search engine real estate

The top listing in Google’s organic search results receives 33 percent of the traffic, compared to 18 percent for the second position. The amount of traffic degrades from there. Results appearing on the first page of Google receive a much higher click through rate than those listed on subsequent pages.

Sites listed on the first Google search results page generate 92% of all traffic from an average search. When moving from page one to two, the traffic dropped by 95%, and by 78% and 58% for the subsequent pages.

If you’re not currently using videos to get more traffic, leads and sales you’re leaving a lot of money on the table.

    • Take a look at The Periodic Table Of SEO Success Factors Look under on page factors – engage. If you run an AdWords campaign and look inside Google Analytics you’ll notice that if the “bounce factor” is high (people only spending a short time on the page) you’ll spend more on your adwords campaign. Logically it also makes sense…Google want’s to rank pages where people spend the most time reading the info.
