Ranking Local Videos to Generate Leads

6 replies
Hi Guys,

I recently watch a webinar about getting local videos ranked on page 1 of Google to generate traffic/leads for a local business.

I'm very sceptical about this because when I'm searching for a personally I never click on any video listings to find service providers.

So I really want to know, is it just me? I'm I missing a fantasic opportunity to generate more leads for my local businesses?

    Youtube videos show up very well in local searches. As long as the video title includes the search words and the city and state. mention the business name and city,state in the description too.

    In my own local business, I have several websites, and lots of videos. The videos bring in the most customers by far, even more than my local listings in local online directories.

    Video thumbnails catch the eye of the online shopper. They stand out. And they are easy to get ranked.

    It depends on the niche & product/service. Some niches you won't generate much or anything at all.

    In some niches & location s ranking videos on page 1 are difficult due to the current competition that exists.

      if Youtube videos exist (with the right key words in the title), Google likes putting 2 videos on each page of search results. If nobody else locally has a keyword match in the title of the videos, and you do, your videos show up.

      It's the one way to almost guarantee a page one search result for a local client.

    Well you are losing on a good potential traffic and lead generation here.
    Use Youtube mostly with the reviews as they are important aspect that any customer considers before going for the service.
