How To Own Google Search Terms With Video Distribution

So here is something interesting that I just discovered. If you search Google for how to look rich, the Daily Idea show "How to Look Rich and Live Cheap" is on the front page 3 different times. How? Because it's the same video on our site, on Metacafe and on Daily Motion. So out of 10 results, 3 of them with take you to our video. That means whoever advertises on the video (and we have a new sponsor beginning next month) gets a lot more bang for their dollar. Come to think of it, we should probably target advertisers per show topic instead of a month at a time. Hmmm….

I'm not sure how long this will last, or if Google will try to get around this issue, but in the short term, uploading your video all over the web could actually help your search results. And here I was, a few weeks ago, talking about the lack of SEO value of video. You guys really should learn to ignore what I say :-)
