The last week, I noticed that youtube videos are ranking very high for many of the competitive search terms I'm working on..
These videos were around for a while now, and when I checked backlinks, I didn't find a big improvement of their backlinking profile, some of them with 15-20 links are beating sites with thousands of backlinks with for the same keyphrases...
All what happened is that, these youtube videos are just being pumped from 2nd, 3rd, or even 7th SERP to dominate the first 3 spots!
well, we all know that Google is making profits from Youtube videos, and highly watched videos were responsible for a raise in Google' stock value the last few months..
Now, do you think we are on a new trend of "self serving" or "personal gain" here?
