    I have a competitor that is putting these low quality videos on his product page. the videos contain pictures of the product that are already on the page and some music and last about 30 seconds. these videos cant be for the consumers benefit, rite? these videos are pretty easy to make so i am thinking if it would help with on page then why not, but then again they are just so crappy that i don't know if i would want to put something like that on my website. i would love to hear your opinions. thanks

    The video helps organise the content to make it easier to consume for your visitors by providing a linear arrangement of the content as well as providing the visitor with a way to view the content without having to scroll or look at several different parts of your website. Think of this like how people on Facebook are more likely to read text in an image with a generic background than they are to read text in a post.

    If you're thinking of copying your competitor by creating low quality videos with regurgitated content, why not do better and create higher quality videos that will provide a real value to your visitors?

    These are not low quality videos, just an interactive way of display some content. Its good for SEO.

    Its good for SEO but bad for conversions. Use quality, google rewards quality.
