    Hi! On my site, I won't mention the name, I have a Youtube video embedded on the page as well as a widget pop up when the download link is clicked. However, when a user goes to click the download link and the widget comes up, the video overlays the widget for some odd reason. So I'm kind of conflicted. I've had this site for a while now and it's been doing well, but I can't help thinking it would do better if this were not happening.

    So my options are:
    1) Find a way to make the widget overlay the embedded youtube video.(I don't know how to do it.)
    2) Remove the embedded video to possibly help with conversions.(I'm hesitant to do this because I'm not sure if the Youtube video is helping my SEO or not.)

    Which should I do and will removing the video affect my PR due to losing a backlink?
    I should mention that the video I am embedding is not my own video yet is someone elses and it is not giving me any benefits directly.

    Also, my widget was getting up to 250+ clicks a day and then it suddenly crashed down to 30-40 a day. I think it might have had something to do with me pinging search engines on accident when I didn't update my site. If someone could possibly troubleshoot with me on this so I can learn and not repeat the same mistake, that'd be awesome.

    Thank you for the help in advance.
