What is Video SEO?
Google ranks video content from YouTube, AOL and others very high in their rankings. By posting videos on YouTube, you can easily gain additional exposure for your dealership, at NO COST!


How about some examples?
Search Google for "2009 Buick LaCrosse Roxboro". The top 6 rankings are all from a video posted on YouTube that was the re-published to additional websites by YouTube as well.
Search Google for "2004 Dodge Durango Indianapolis". Top ranking is a YouTube video on Aol Autos.
You can use your pre-owned inventory to compete for dozens of keywords that you would normally not be able to compete for.

So how do I do it?
Sign up for a free Youtube account and start uploading videos. The trick though comes with the proper titles, descriptions, and keywords of your videos. (VinSolutions software will automatically optimize that for you.). You can record digital video with most any snapshot or video camera these days.
