Video 50 times more likely to hit first page Google

I find Twitter a great resource for information relating to the industry, the bite-size stream can quickly pull you in quickly to interesting links. The extract below came from original source:

“A video is 50 times more likely to rank on the first page of Google search results than any other content. It is therefore imperative for every product, brand, and marketing campaign to have a social video element.”

Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, Vquence’s CEO and former CSIRO research scientist

In addition, other social video networks such as MySpace.TV, Dailymotion, or Vimeo should also be included in marketing campaigns since their audiences are more focused and a video can thus reach its target more easily.
