This is interesting. To me, anyway. I’ve been targeting the keyword “internet marketing Birmingham” with this blog, for obvious reasons. I’ve not been going after it super hard, what with clients and the day job and all.
But I made a little YouTube video that targeted the phrase “Birmingham internet marketing.” I made that the title of the video, put it in the description and used it in the tags. I also used the phrase in the video, and created captions for the video so Google could read the fact that I used the phrase.
Lo and behold, the video is outranking my site, by quite a bit.
What’s weird is the video doesn’t rank in the top 50 for “Birmingham internet marketing,” while my site does.
Here it is, nothing fancy:
This just goes to show that Google loves to rank videos, even ones where views are low, and even for local searches.
So get going! Make some low-quality webcam videos on your subject matter and start ranking!
