People love to watch videos. Just take a look at what they did to make YouTube a very popular site. If you can add videos to your blog or website, you wouldn't have any problem doing SEO to make your site visible.

I used to strictly write on my blogs but don't get the results that I'm expecting. Until one day, I've decided to include videos and it worked great! My blogs are now appearing on the top results based on my own keywords!

Uploading your own video online will really help you get more search results and it's really helpful if you have your own online business to promote!
