Why Leading Online Publishers Are Investing In Video

Question: If you wanted to reach an online audience, would you ignore half of its online behavior?

That would be ludicrous.

Now consider this: Today, watching online video accounts for more than one third of audience time; by 2017, that number is expected to double!

The play button is arguably the most compelling content on the web. Consider that last year:

  • The amount of B2C video content from people and brands in Facebook’s news feeds increased by 3.6x.
  • The use of video for B2B marketing grew from 8% of marketers in 2013 to 58% last year – more than 7x YTY growth.

Want to bet against that trend?

Savvy online publishers understand these statistics — and see the trend — and that’s precisely why they are investing in video.Read More

Video SEO Best Practices

Video significantly boosts the SEO (search engine optimization) value of web pages.

Everyone knows Google is the dominant player in web search.  But how does Google rank search results?

Google says it places an emphasis on “content that engages, educates and incentivizes users to stay on a company’s website.”

Meaning: Engaging content boosts SEO; keyword-stuffing your web pages doesn’t work.  Websites that hold audience attention — websites that audiences find valuable — index better in Google search results.

What type of content is #1 for audience engagement?  Video!  Consider:

  • Video is over 50x more likely to get organic Google page one rank than text
  • 62% of Google Universal Search results contain video
  • Video search results are clicked 41% more than text search results

So what are some Video SEO best practices?  Read More
