    Why are Google Showing Far Fewer Video Snippets in Search Results?
    It make sense. There are some purists out there that believe Video Marketing by itself is simply more engaging - which it is but don't really use video to its full potential. They keep things very whitefart. But then there are people like me who use Video Marketing more because of the power it has to control eyeballs - and this often employs blackfart techniques.

    In the case of the article you mentioned, I can only think of one reason why Goober would eliminate or reduce the number of rich snippets coming from anywhere - because takes away eyeballs from what would otherwise be a click on an Adwords ad.

    (Assuming there are no YT videos on the page), if Joe Schmoe has his Google Authorship pic showing up in the search results and the rest of the page is filled with nothing else but text, where will you likely click?....on HIS website/blog instead of an Adwords ad.

    It's the same reason people like myself use YT -- because you get the benefit of that thumbnail showing up and you're not paying per click = all with the ultimate goal of driving traffic to a website or some other call of action like making a phone call.
