We've found that YouTube videos tend to rank faster on the search engine results than regular text links. We discovered that for ourselves with the launch of another Weebly website called www.Best-Website-Maker.com. Within just a few days, the first YouTube video we did for that website reached page 3 of Google. Before the first month was done, we'd reached page one on Yahoo and it's happened with this combined Article-Video-Blog-Backlink plan.
The foundation of our online marketing is keyword research. We use Long Tail Pro Platinum because It helps us focus on popular, yet competitive keywords we feel we can rank high for. Once we have our keywords then we write compelling content because that's what the internet is all about. Search engines hunt for keywords, but people want interesting information. It's not one or the other; it's both!
