There’s no doubt about it – Google loves video.
Studies show that videos now appear in 62% of Google universal search results, and it’s been reported that video is 50 times more likely to rank higher in search than plain-text content. In the wake of the search giant’s most recent Hummingbird update, it’s clear that if you want to practice good SEO, you have to play by Google’s rules – and online video can be a big piece of the puzzle.
Of course, the value of video is hardly news to most seasoned online marketers. The latest data shows that video is already among the most popular content marketing tactics, with 73% of B2Bs doing some form of video marketing within their overall strategies.
