    having videos on a website for "on page SEO"


    I have read that having videos on a website is good for on page SEO.

    1.) If i have relevant embed videos from YouTube, does it count ? or i have to have a video on my website (server) not just a link to YouTube ?

    2.) If i have a video (embed or physically on the website) with different language than website is, isn't it any problem for this on page SEO ?

    I am afraid this is a myth, Videos have zero effect on SEO

    While having a video from youtube doesn't directly impact seo, it is valuable because google will see you pointing to an authority site. Which helps Google determine your relevance to a specific keyword phrase.

    I've found that adding a video to a page seems to index it faster, but it doesn't seem to add much actual SEO value.
    It certainly can't hurt - and the embed can help your OWN video rank, and I've seen ranking a video pull up a website that was "attached" to it.
