YouTube is a platform for distributing your video messaging, but it is also a social network, meaning content you post on YouTube can easily be shared across numerous social networks.
Does video content marketing have an impact on SEO?
Can videos actually help you rank higher in the search engines for keywords that are hard to rank for? The answer is yes, given that you’re doing it right. There is little doubt that Google and other major search engines like Bing love video content and won’t hesitate to rank it higher than traditional articles.

This just goes on to show that quality video content can make a big difference to not only your conversion rate, but also the organic search traffic you generate.
How Do You Measure the Success of Video Marketing?
Simply put, the more engagement (views, shares, comments, etc.) your videos receive, the higher they will rank in search engine results. This data can be easily be analyzed on YouTube in a number of ways. YouTube tracks the number of views on any given video, the sources of traffic to each video, demographics of a video’s audience, and social shares.
How are your videos found?
Like Google Analytics, YouTube allows you to view the traffic sources for each video. This is important for determining what works and what doesn’t work to drive traffic. Age, gender and geographic locations of an audience are critical pieces of information to any marketing department. Who is your content reaching? Do you need to adjust content to reach your target audience?
Social Shares – How many times and across what networks is your content being shared?
YouTube makes it easy to not only share your video content, but to track its success across the web. Utilizing the analytics tools provided will allow you to fine-tune your content marketing plan to reach your target audience.
Better Emotional Connection
If you look around the social media landscape, you’ll find that videos are being shared the most in comparison to other content types. While there are many reasons as to why people like sharing videos, one of the strongest “why” is that people connect to the right video content on an emotional level. By creating videos that appeal to the emotions of your target audience, you not only give them a reason to consume your content but also spread it across their own network.
