    Google + YouTube Search


    I know Google owns YouTube, but is the YouTube search function powered by the Google algo?

    well they should use their own algo, since they consider their videos on organic result.

    Well, I previously posted a longer answer to this question, but for some reason it was deleted. Moderators, could you tell me why? I'm not a spammer, and it was a legitimately helpful answer.

    Anyway, the gist of what I said was that Google likely reuses a significant portion of their algorithm, but probably doesn't reuse the portions that relate to off-page metrics, when it comes to the Youtube site search. If you're talking about the inclusion of videos in the normal SERPS, though, that's a different story. All factors are considered there.

    Eric, I did read your original reply before it disappeared, thank you. I was just inquiring as to whether youtube put stock into relevancy like Google does considering they own it, i.e. titles, descriptions, video and page views.

    Interesting. Thanks again for the reply.
