Do youtube videos in SERP really work for local business?

    I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with using videos to rank for local keywords ex: "flowers in New York"

    I see these videos everywhere but do people really click on them or call the number on the title

    Thanks

    I haven't tried it myself, but if there are lots of such videos they would probably give some results, otherwise there wouldn't exist that many..

    Ask yourself would you click on a video to find what you are searching for ?
    for certain local niches traffic is high(e.g. Dance school) , while for others it is very low.

    But I still do it to get a backlink from youtube page of my video.

    it depends on what type of business it is.. Thats like asking do commercials on tv really work, if it didn't then why do companies spend millions during the superbowl.

    Hey, I have ranked a few videos for local business and I'm getting leads from that not so much just a few.
