Just curious, can you rank videos on bing video or Vimeo or anywhere like you can on Youtube?
vimeo.com is a good alternative for youtube.
go for metacafe and dailymotion
any more inputs into this?
dailymotion is the best YouTube alternative I have found my dailymotion videos rank well in all of the search engines even outranking youtube videos.
another vote for daylimotion , videos rank pretty well
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiJNi5shyjI I uploaded this video to Vimeo.com at one point and it went to #1 for that keyword with no other seo no links nothing. A week later vimeo took it down for spam. They dont let you post garbage like youtube does
I've had a similar experience with Daily Motion. I had a few videos for some good keywords with 6k and 12k monthly searches just appear without links or views on page 5. But backlinking didn't increase the position enough to make it worthwhile. I also had Vimeo videos ranking far better than YouTube videos (without backlinking). The thing I don't like is with Vimeo and DailyMotion it's not easy for the visitor to get to where you want them to go, like it is with YouTube.
I have been playing for daily motion for some time, it is the "best" alternative to youtube - but it does not come even close to the traffic YT brings.
The main problem is you cannot link in the description so even if you do get views, they have to copy/paste the url into their address bar which makes the CTR terrible.
I hate the Google monopoly. We need to start using the alternatives.
Metacafe doesn't let everyone upload videos any more. Such a waste.
