Is anyone using Google videos to drive traffic to there sites
Interesting idea. How about quality of video traffic? I have some doubts 'cause Google Image traffic suck big time.
yes l use google video to do affiliate marketing and because video is still in the early stages it is so easy to get on the first page for almost any keyword or tag[keywords] within a few days.
When you upload your video to the rest of the video marketing sites you can drive enormous amounts of targeted traffic that converts fast.
It is a matter of time before multi media really takes hold of IM ignore and you'll lag behind regards Nicho
good idea i have test it but here troubles
1- like you say it's new idea
and not a lot of people online use it sorry to tell you that
2- if you use good keywords can get a lot of hits but poor in real traffic
3- i was indexed for some keywords after 3 days gone away
if you love change text every day sending tons of videos look like spaming i do not trust if give you real good ending.
nicho, do you use any special techniques to get to the first page? Or just carefully chosen keywords?
Great idea! I am going to test this with one of my sites.
Hi Mark, you asked if l used any special techniques to get to the first page.........Okay bear with me as l try to condense the info or the answer will turn into an ebook.
1. the free organic listings--getting your video listed fast on the first page of the search engines
As l am too mean to use pay per click, l only very go after what they call long tail keywords which are normally better buying phrases than single or double keywords.
Also l want some competition for the keywords in PPC so l know that there is money in the market.
The when l found a keyword l think will work, l go to google first look at the main entry search bar and on the right hand side click on advanced search which brings another page up, l scroll down and set the google search up to show results of a 100 instead of their default page, stay with me you'll understand why in a moment.
Now it's time to find out how much competition l am up against for my keyword, often you see millions of pages which is a lad of crap and puts people off l am glad to say as it leaves the best pickings for those who know a little more.
Now its time to put your search in and l am not going to use technical terms as their are some newbies in here who will get confused, anyway go to the search box and put your search term in and google will return something 1 of 30million pages.
The if you place "keyword" around your keyword you will see that the competition or how many pages using that exact phrase drops rapidly to around a few million and again that's where most people look away and think there is too much competition but if you do the next stage which most people do not you may be surprised.
scroll to bottom of your page then you'll see 1 of 10 or 30 pages go to the very last page and click on it and google will reveal that we have omitted loads of entries from your search as they are similar , really what it means is that you are only really up against something like 891 websites or whatever figure is left and if its under 20.000 l know l can beat them with linking etc.
Listen google video is really easy to optimize for as most of the people uploading videos are not into internet marketing and of course google will give its own google videos more weight than standard entries.
Getting on the first page is easy to stay there all you need to do is write a few articles on the same subject and main keyword but ensure that within the articles you have a link back to your google video but ensure your google video link is anchor text ie your main keyword.
If you place the articles squidoo and make it on the page/lens and do the same with graigslist you'll stay on the first page, finally l am having great success with using google pages as google are treating just like blogger.com when that first came out.
anyway its saturday l am still hung over so if l have confused you forgive me regards nicho
No confusion Nicho, that was great! I'm not an expert, but I'm far from a noobie. So, I understood everything. That trick with the google search results was an eye-opener.
thanks for the insight nicho, understood you even with your hangover. anybody using video sights for backlinks, as i know you can add a backlink with metacafe? know of a good video submitter? thx.
The links that you add in metacafe and youtube are nofollow, they will help you just with the traffic.
Video submitter there are these ones
Looks like crappy ebook sale, but the free version really does his job
another one, not tested by me ...yet
A web based application, not actually tested by me
Hope this helps,
Thanks for that description, Nicho!
nice nick, thanks!
