    Trying to come up with a solid ranking program and want to know about backlinking to a youtube vid.

    Does embedding a youtube vid on a site count the same as a simple backlink to the video or what?

    thx

    Backlinks and embeds are totally different , but to add diversity it's ok to have your video embeded on other sites, but very important is to get some plays on the embeds.

    I figured they might be different, was wondering if embeds might contribute to the vid's ranking...
