02 May Google feeling the heat from Facebook, Instagram, up their video game.
YouTube is the #1 platform for video in the world. According to Alexa.com, out of 2 billion websites in the world, here are the Top Ten in the United States:
I added #11 because it is Instagram and I have a point to make.
YouTube is the leading video platform on the Internet. As you see, YouTube is ranked #2 just after #1 Google.
But in the last few years, Facebook and Instagram have been encroaching on YouTube’s turf offering easy video services of their own and are now nipping at YouTube’s heels.
In response to this, Google, whose parent company Alphabet also owns YouTube, has changed their algorithm to begin displaying a lot more YouTube videos on Page 1 of Google.
Not only that, but they are featuring videos in special Video Carousels on many search result pages that are larger and in the top half of every Page 1 if there is an applicable video to display there.
Often, they are putting these Video Carousels just below their paid Ads and ABOVE the organic search results that for real estate are over-populated with posts from Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com and Realtor.com
WHY WOULD GOOGLE DO THIS?
Annually, YouTube generates over $5 BILLION in revenue for Google. Not 5 MILLION… 5 BILLION dollars every year.
Why do you think they’re moving those videos into a video box above their other listings? Because they want to encourage people to make MORE videos so they can deliver more content. Why?
So they can make more money on ad revenue. How much more incentive do you need from Google? They’re almost bribing you with top positioning just for making videos they can include.
This creates a unique opportunity for a motivated Realtor to build better name recognition for themselves by creating lots of videos that cover every search term for their local market that they can think of and getting them up on YouTube.
So, what is the cost of uploading a video to YouTube? Zero. And unlike paid Ads that come down after the money stops being paid to Google for an Ad, a video could be up there indefinitely. That’s like having a billboard on a busy highway showing your face, brand and message for everyone passing by day and night for years, perhaps. That is a great deal.
