The Google Advantage - YouTube Your Ways To Success
Do you regularly host videos on YouTube? Get spotted by search engines and discovered by your target audience by transcribing your videos. Research shows that videos with transcripts consistently rank higher.
The textual detail in your transcript will enable search engines to crawl and index your content better. Inserting keywords in tags and titles can help only to a certain extent.
A recent independent test study conducted by SEO Consultant Everett Sizemore and Nathan Joynt proved that YouTube and Google both index and factor into ranking the keywords found in caption files but not the keywords present in videos without captions or transcripts.
