    I've noticed recently that Facebook videos are getting many views. More so than the videos I have posted on YouTube. I'm starting to wonder if there's any benefit in search engine optimization and Google videos. I guess organically if there's a link to click through you might get more klicks that way. But in the end I'm still wondering if there's any other hidden piece of search engine optimization and using Google videos over YouTube videos. I know that YouTube videos or rank inside of Google search, but Facebook videos still don't. So I'm wondering if it's a benefit or maybe I should just use both Facebook video and YouTube videos.

    There is no direct value to seo. But you should use both for social signals and additional value for your users :)

    Well as you can see there is a line for Tags, I guess they will try to add some search engine optimization to their videos in the future. Maybe now they have slight difference. One of my videos went viral with more than 256 000 views, 2 000 likes, almost a thousand comments and a couple of thousand shares. It didn't have a title, no tags and only a short text 4-5 words.
