What is Video SEO?
Having your marketing video show up on page 1 of Google is very much like having your business presence on the corner of the busiest street in town. Local customers are drawn to your business because it stand out from the crowd, and it's what they see first.
To ensure your video get the attention it deserves, we can optimize your video to almost certainly guarantee it ends up ranked on page 1 of Google, and continues to be ranked on page 1 each and every month. By taking advantage of our Video SEO plan, we will perform ongoing keyword research and analysis for your video, ans make any updates or revisions as necessary. We will also create new backlinks to your video every month to ensure it continues to outperform your competition.
How much does Video SEO cost?
More and more content is indexed by Google each and every day. For example, when you search the keyword phrase "White Rock dentists", over 14,300 results are returned by Google. A few months from now, that number may rise above 15,000 results. The competition for keywords becomes more fierce each and every month. That's just the nature of the Web. To keep your video ranked on page 1 of Google for a specific keyword phrase (e.g., "White Rock Dentists") each and every month requires continuous observation, keyword research, additional backlinks, and more.
Pricing for video SEO starts at $50/mo. for one local keyword. For example, your cost would be $50/mo. to keep your video ranked for the keyword phrase "White Rock dentists." The more keywords you want to rank for, the cheaper your total cost per month. In other words, if you want to rank your video for "White Rock dentists" and "Dentists in White Rock," then your total cost would be $90/mo. See our price list for full pricing and details
What is a local keyword for Video SEO?
When you order a Video SEO package we will work to ensure you appear on page 1 of Google for your local keywords. A local keyword is a keyword or phrase containing a city name. Keywords like "White Rock Dentist", " Personal Trainers in Delta", "Steak House in South Surrey", etc. are all local keywords.
How do you know which local keywords are best to rank for?
We use keyword analytical software including Google Keyword Planner and Longtail Pro to determine which keywords and "keyword phrases" have the most search volume every month. For example, if "White Rock dentists" gets over 100 searches in Google per month, and "White Rock dental clinics" only gets 15 searches per month, then it makes best sense to optimize the video for the phrase "White Rock dentists."
Can I order keywords that are not local for Video SEO?
You can send us any keyword or "keyword phrase" you want, however, only local keywords are covered by our 100% No-Risk, Money-Back Promise. If you want to rank for keywords like "dentist" or "restaurant" they may require many months of work since they are some of the most competitive words to rank for on the Internet. We do, however, guarantee to rank your video for local keywords like "White Rock Dentist", " Personal Trainers in Delta", "Steak House in South Surrey", etc.
Why are only local keywords covered by the 100% No-Risk, Money-Back Promise?
We only guarantee placement for local keywords. Local keywords are keywords/phases that contain a city name (Example - "White Rock Dentist", " Personal Trainers in Delta", "Steak House in South Surrey"). This does not include region or district names like Lower Mainland (but you want to rank for keywords like "Lower Mainland Dentist", then we will optimize your video for those keywords). As long as your local keyword or phrase contains the city name, then we do offer a guarantee to rank your video on page 1 of Google. This isn't to suggest your video won't end up on page 1 for other these other keywords, but without consulting with you before the production of your video about the keywords you want to ranked for, we cannot offer you our 100% No-Risk, Money-Back Promise.
