Youtube videos ranking really well in Google?

Discussion in 'Google' started by caroline, Sep 12, 2007.

  1. #1
    I have noticed recently, that for many keywords, there's one or two youtube videos on the first page of search results. What do you need to do for your videos to appear in Google? Anybody tried it?

    I suppose you need to:
    SEMrush
    1)Get the video url crawled by linking to it from an existing site
    2)Have the Keywords in the video title
    3)Maybe the popularity of the video is important too. Since Google owns Youtube, maybe they give the views/comments on the video some weight. But that's just speculation.

    So, anybody experimented with that? I'd be very interested in hearing what you want to share. :)

    I have seen some of those videos of by you tube that ranks. If you tube is owned by google, probably they just help those videos in a way.

    this is why my niche video site is now dead. I had top SERPs for several categories, but not anymore - since everyone clicks the youtube video above where my site used to be. It's a disgrace.

    Its only because youtube videos are linked from millions of blogs. Look at the backlinks for the video that is ranking. Google is not playing with index manually. If you don't believe look at what comes up for "search engine". Won't you expect Google to be first but its not even on 1st page!! So its always the b-a-c-k-l-i-n-k-s if you want to rank high enough.

    Many of Google's own products don't rank all that well, for YouTube to rank high, it has something to do with the "authority" factor. YouTube is the best video site out there, with tons of backlinks, and is considered one of the authority video sites if not THE one. Similar to Amazon in shopping, and Wiki in information (lots of people think this is debatable).

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video (since it consists of numerous frames of pictures, should be worth millions. I don't see any problem for a video ranking well on Google, especially since Google bought Youtube. I'm sure Google factors several variables into its video ranking algorithm, e.g. popularity, # views, #links, etc.
