YouTube #2 for Shoes?

Discussion in 'Reviews' started by dvduval, Feb 25, 2007.

    Is it just me, or is it wierd that a YouTube video is ranked #2 for shoes?
    It looks like a funny video, but is it possible there is a bit too much weight being assigned to this google owned domain?

    I just checked it out and it is linking to a youtube video... it's a popular video though (12 million views! But probably because it's ranked at #2).

    I think it is weighted too much... (it only has a few thousand for backlinks.. but http://www.aldoshoes.com which is ranked 3rd has 6k back links!). Pretty unfair IMO

    That shoes videos is the best, I don't even have to check to know which one you're talking about.

    *checks* Yup! It's that one. That video is very big, and I'm sure it has thousands of backlinks.

    Wow, nice finding.

    I agree that this is pretty unfair... but youtube videos rank so good in general - but have also many backlinks.

    Haha.

    One way I can think of that this video is so high ranking is that probably a ton of people posted the video in online forums, blogs, social networks, etc. etc.

    But yeah even though it only has 87 Google links it outranks a site with 5,320 Google links...brilliant.

    This just goes to show even Google is so far off the mark in delivering relevant results. It's more about popularity then relevance to what the searcher is looking for.

    I think it's silly that youtube pages are starting to pollute the SERPs.

    Not very relevant to what people are really looking for when they search for "shoes", yet it sends more traffic to a Google owned traffic pig thats making money off ad impressions.

    hmmm, clean up the index to produce better, relevant results, and diminish revenues on the overpriced golden goose, all be it temporary (youtube that is). OR keep letting those pages pollute the index reducing relevancy only to loose search market share.

    damned if they do, damned if they don't.

    I'm exaggerating a bit, but hey, i find it funny.
