Are local biz YouTube videos ranking in the UK?

6 replies

I've been doing some looking around recently and am hardly ever seeing videos in the top 10 search results for local business keywords in the UK. When I look at the US, on the other hand, there's loads.

I'm wondering if this is because:

A. videos are still slow catching on in the UK
B. There's some difference in the way video results are ranked

Any thoughts?

Finally, if I want to rank a YouTube video in the top 10 it's currently on page 7 of the SERPs, is it simply a matter of building more backlinks or is there something else I should do?

    I had some videos on page one for a local plumber and hairdresser, but the videos dropped to page 3 about 6 weeks ago. I have not tried any further backlinking or bookmarking etc to improve rankings.

      Hi Philboy,

      Thanks for that - do you think there was any reason for the drop in rankings or was that just because they needed links?

    The videos have quite a lot of links , and their rankings had remained steady, until about six weeks ago, and the rankings dropped, and reading through comments on the forum, it seems I am not the only person to see this - perhaps it was the panda update ?

      Cheers for that - I'll do some more research and see what I can find out.

        Google is weird... but anyway... in my country has the same problems..they may use different "tendencies" (in a lack of word) to generate their results.

        They are constantly changing the way they rank, but nothing that some good backlinks donĀ“t take care off

          I travel to UK often, and I do get some high rankings on my videos there.
