If Everything Google said was true, everyone would be on the first page (Which isn't possible) + No one would pay for their stupid ads.

He never looks like he's certain of what he's saying...
Sometimes, he says some logic things. Not really valuable content in that video.

With Google, I think it's always like learn and test. You should never think that how you did is the final way to do it.

One thing I'm certain is that Google is changing, and when you see content ranking 1st, 2nd or 3rd, that doesn't mean that's the best way to do it. That's just the best Google is having for now, but you should try new things to overcome all that chit (and I'm not talking about this guy's chitty 50 words content) !

Let's not try and comment on the brony's appearance, any insight about the video? These 2 are fishing for content to make for views it seems like. pretty unfortunate content has been watered down to bait.

Pages with higher word count can rank better because they tend to cover more relevant terms and topics to the keyword, not because they are just longer pieces of content.

Well, at least he understands something about SEO. Many people still don't get this and just think word count.
