Why Do YouTube Vids Rank High On Google? Google Owns YT
Why do YouTube videos rank high on Google? The answer is simple: Google owns YouTube. You may have heard of this tidbit of information before, but what does it mean for you as a content creator? It means that the company most responsible for delivering search results also owns one of the largest social media platforms in existence. Read on to learn more about the connections between YouTube and Google.
Because YouTube And Google Are One In The Same
Google owns YouTube, which means they control the search engine, video hosting site, and video indexing system that determines what videos rank high on its platform. That’s why every time you try to watch a video on your phone while at work or home during lunch break, there are always ads popping up with links taking you back over here so you can see some other crap they want you to watch instead!
Users Don’t Rely On SEO To Find Videos
You don’t have to know the name of the video you are looking for. Users can find videos by searching for keywords and phrases. For example, if you want to find out how to make a cake, you might search “how to bake a cake” or “baking cakes”.
Users can also find videos by watching other related content on YouTube. For example, if you watch one cooking tutorial on YouTube then additional related content will appear in your feed based on what other users have watched before (this is called “related videos”).
If someone has been watching lots of baking tutorials then they might be interested in seeing more baking tutorials so they could click on those related links instead of searching specifically for “baking.” This means that there are two different ways people can end up at a video: either directly through searching or indirectly through browsing channels.
Viewers Want Entertainment, So They Will Turn To YT For It
The average person spends over 30 minutes on their phone each day, and one of the most common things people do with their phones is search for something online. In fact, Google has stated that there are over 100 billion searches per month on its search engine alone – which means there are billions more happening on other engines as well.
This means that when you’re looking for something specific on YouTube and Google, or just browsing around with your phone in hand, it’s likely that sooner or later an advertisement will pop up in your face telling you about a video related to whatever topic interests you most right now (and chances are good that this video will be hosted by YouTube).
