Thanks

    A video makes an article more strong and effective.But there has a problem if you work for PPC [Adsense].
    When you use a copyrighted video to your blog from Youtube Or Somewhere else, your application will be denied by Adsense.
    So, the batter practice will be using own channel's youtube video.

    Adding video keeps people on your page longer, which is a positive dwell time statistic that Rank Brain apparently uses. If you are just adding a video, it helps to also add a video transcript under the video. Google can't "read" a video but they can read the words in the video transcript, which could very well help it rank.

      That makes total sense about the transcript for Google. I'm going to have to implement that with my videos.
      Thanks for the tip Dave.

    Yes, adding a youtube video is helpful because it has the potential to keep your visitor on your site longer. Google uses bounce rate (how fast a visitor leaves a site) to determine how relevant a webpage is to the keywords searched. So, if your site's bounce rate is lower (visitor stays longer on website), this is a good thing because it tells Google that your website is indeed relevant to the search. With a lower bounce rate, your site has the potential to rank higher in the SERP.

      It's actually dwell time that they seem to be using, not bounce rate. Bounce rate tells them nothing because plenty of queries are short answer ones where it only takes one page and 5-10 seconds to get your answer (like "what is the temperature outside?"). Also, bounce cannot be measured for all websites if the person does not return to the SERPs and pogo stick to other results. An incredibly small percentage of websites have Google Analytics installed, so Google would only know the bounce rates of those sites that had it installed.
