    Do you think google will consider video transcript as original content? For example, take a product review video on youtube, transcript it, and post the transcript on your blog as article.

    If the content is nowhere on google then yes it will be original. However make sure that the transcript reads well.

    I had tried it
    you simply cannot copy and paste, there are some spelling mistakes, plus you need to add LSI keywords.
    Without Keywords you cannot rank in search engines

    I thought I'd bump this as i was going to ask the same question. if you do a search on google with " " and the text doesn't show up in google would it be unique content?

    Many brands are doing amazing outreach with video, but many marketers fail to realize transcripts can do so much more. Murphy explains that one of her top priorities as Content Marketing Manager for 3Play Media is helping the marketing community to understand that videos can be a starting point for content creation and targeted inbound marketing efforts. She outlines how to leverage video content for content marketing through video transcripts and derivative content.

    This is pretty accurate. You can't just dump content on a website and expect the traffic to start flowing. Eventually it will of course but you'll be pumping hundreds of articles before you get anywhere.

    Add a decent title that's been researched and plenty of LSI keywords mixed into the content and you'll be in a far better position.

    Was more just as supporting pages rather than pages I'd need them to rank for :)

    In that case you're golden! LSI keywords are still a good idea though to build the context of the pages you need to rank.
