    There are rumors that if you embed a YT Video on your site it helps your site with ranking better. Can anybody confirm that?

    Yeah it helps. In other words, more web 2.0 content in your site = better ranking.

    Yes like williamk and garrido say.

    You're using YT which owned by G so ok. Also bonus is some visitors will watch part of vid or whole video and on site longer so a definite bonus as opposed to all your visitors leaving in under 3 seconds.

    They can help as in add some more interactivity. I personally haven't seen too much of a difference though with just a few videos. However, they are still worth the effort overall.

    You get better bounce rate and that is all. Bounce rate can help SEO.
