Typically when I produce a video I will upload it to youtube and also embed it on my site as content for my visitors. I realize that you can get visitors from youtube but I've been wondering the following: 1. Does this really just give my content to youtube leaving me with only residual traffic from them? 2. Should I upload the videos to my site only so they are unique content? 3. Do embedded youtube videos help your on site SEO in anyway or does this just look like you're jacking vids from youtube just like everyone else? I've been thinking about uploading teasers to youtube and the full vid on my site. That way I can pull in more traffic. This is more work and before I decide to do that I'd like to know the answers to the questions above. So how does Google treat embedded youtube vids that you own? I guess they would not know they were yours anyway.
