    Hi guys,

    Just got a video from someone off Fiverr (which I'm really happy with for $5!) just there. I heard a few good things about using videos for SEO and decided that i'd be better off with my own video on my site rather than someone elses.

    Lets say my site is about laptop mice. (it's not).

    The video I got says stuff like "Check out laptopmiceexample.com for all these great laptop mice" etc etc...... as well as mentioning some articles that are on the site.

    Is this Ok to put on the homepage of my site? Since they are already on the site if you know what I mean.

    Another question is how do you guys put it on your site? I don't want to host it myself for obvious reasons....Is YouTube a good idea? For example, I'll make a new youtube acc called "laptopmiceexample.com" and then upload that video and embed it on to my homepage.

    PS - Any tips for making the most impact from your own video for your site?

    Thanks

    Yes, videos are good for website optimization and promotion as well... But don't not expect wonders out of one videos. If really want to get into video marketing, you need some handful videos to start with.
    For an effective video campaign, create some good informative video and promote them on social media website and some good video distribution website.

    Hi,
    Yes, I agreed too. Including videos to promote website is a nice option and working very effectively now-a-days. The reason behind this is, Google is giving very much importance to traffic and videos are the best source to attract visitors.
    Videos can easily be promoted on social networking sites which drives traffic to the site and help to generate business.

    as far as I have experienced putting URL in video titles really works (specially on Youtube, videofy.me, vimeo etc)

    You can possibly amplify the effect of pomoting video on social media sites if you also create a mobile site that also promotes them, making your campaign friendlier to the handheld device users.
