What is the benefit of giving relevant Video links from our Hubs?
The benefit for your visitor is more relevant content. The benefit for the hubber is that it may count towards the individual hub score. Who knows how much weight it carries in the HubPages algorithm? Personally I've used very few video capsules recently and some of those hubs are my most popular.
I've noticed that with use of videos, from my GA, that there is a longer stay. Better chance of clicks I would think but isn't for everybody.
I'm tending to use video links from you tube in most of my hubs at the moment. Keep people on the page for longer and the chancs are they might click something that generates income for me, thats the theory anyway. It also gives me a way of choosing topics as you tube has good statistics for their video views.
The video capsule works with Revver, which let's you earn for views of your own videos. So, I'm starting to shoot more and more bits of my own and put them up there.
And I use video when there's something really relevant that adds to the Hub.
- If people stop to watch the clip, they stay longer on your Hub, which is good for page rank
- if you embed a Youtube clip, it will eventually show up as a link on Youtube, which is a valid backlink.
It's also a content boost, as it can help deliver the message of your hub.
