The success of any SEO campaign for search engine prominence on any given topic is predicated on one concept; authority. To be an authority on any given topic, subject, or “search engine market” (think keywords) requires a demonstration of knowledge which is accomplished by publishing relevant and useful content.
Content takes the form of the written word, images, memes, and, more importantly, video. Without good, relevant content, no quest for kingship in any given search engine market (top ranking for specific keywords) should be expected to succeed.
If a brand has good content backing it up, the prerequisites are in place to justify hiring an SEO or pursuing top rankings in the search engines for any given topics (or keywords).
As far as SEO and the Web Goes, Content is King
Video Content is Web Content
What good is a website without any content?
What good would a video sharing site like Vimeo or YouTube be without videos being uploaded?
What good is your brand or company’s web properties without content?
Not good at all. Fail.
As previously stated, content takes the form of images, text, and video. In the hands of a capable SEO, websites with excellent written content and adequately optimized images can rank for whatever keywords relate to that property far easier than a property without.
However, a website with optimized images and written content won’t be able to provide more value to a user than a web property with those attributes that also has dedicated video content. In fact, it’s not even a comparison. Thus, the value of video content.
Furthermore, video content is more engaging than text content and, when strategically embedded on a website, can keep users where you want them, on your website or other web property.
User retention, video content, and user-friendliness are SEO ranking factors. With the mindful implementation of video content, you’ll get the advantage.
Video Content is a Dynamic SEO Tool
If Embeddable Videos Have Legs, So Does SEO Efforts
Consider YouTube, the world’s #2 search engine behind Google. Google owns YouTube. Ranking in the search engines is one thing, but ranking on YouTube (for a topic or “keyword”) is another matter.
The most common way folks search for information and solutions is by initiating a search engine query in Google’s search engine and choosing the result that relates best to their needs. The second most common is YouTube. By combining these two resources, you’ll have the SEO advantage over competitors that were asleep at the wheel of driving business. Don’t be asleep at the wheel!
