    Like the title says, I'm curious about your experience in posting posts with backlinks that has videos.

    Since you have an outbound link plus a video embedded in the post, would that have any effect on the strength of the link juice?

    If you say, for example, have 100 posts and each one has the same video, what would that do to the video? (more backlinks for the video? if so, what about for the site you are linking to?)

    If you say, for example, have 100 posts without any video, would that be better with the one above?

    From my own experience...I have found that the video links actually help the post to rank better and all of my client sites and my personal sites are PR4 or better.

    Many times, I will just post with an image or two and add the video after a week or so (just depends on the video)...I never use the same video twice on any site...

    Hope this helps....

    Are we talking about a random youtube video or a video you created with a backlink in the description to your website?

    Yes, a video targeting your keyword. Won't some link juice go to the video?

    I would assume so but I haven't tested it yet, would be nice to get some more replies from people doing this.

    I think links at the top get more juice so if the video is at the bottom it wouldn't get that much juice but I could be wrong...

    Build My Rank does this automatically for your posts.. they do that for diversity but won't that change the post's effectiveness for your site?
