When Matt Cutts encourages you to report blackhat SEO optimizers, you can be pretty sure situation is not very good at all. Snitching on others for your own benefit is considered immoral and even penalized in some areas. If you are not good enough to outrank some websites which aren’t using 100% whitehat SEO techniques, than you should change your tactics and get more knowledge to beat your competition.
Now let’s get into a philosophy. I read a Bible when I was a little kid, I remember that a guy called Judas snitched on Jesus, but Jesus didn’t tell his friends about that snitch even though they could easily hang him and save themselves a lot of trouble. Judas got some money as a reward and that was the whole story. Kissing someones butt for his own benefit.
SEOmoz – top SEO snitches in the world
Remember that guy that ranked his 100% BH optimized site for the keyword “car insurance”? SEOmoz were the only ones to publish that and kill that poor guy’s business. It was kind of a miracle he got through with his rankings for almost 2 months and it would be a matter of time before Google penalizes him and there was no need for SEOmoz snitches to kill his business few weeks earlier by snitching on him. For what? For glory? To make themselves look like the only real deal in the SEO market?
Google is a mess and with recent algorithms it is only creating bigger margin between rich webmasters who can afford quality optimization and backlinks (buying backlinks is still considered blackhat) and smaller webmasters who can’t succeed without tons of money to spend on the most fancy stuff.
What exactly is unnatural link building? Where’s the limit between blackhat and whitehat SEO? “Content is the king” right. Make a good content and you will get tons of backlinks on auto pilot from your readers. RIGHT. Content can be pure gold, but it will only be shared all over social media sites and internet, if it is about nude celebrities or shocking UFO discovery scam.
Don’t be a snitch, work on improving your own techniques and find what suits you the best. Snitching on others is as immoral as negative SEO campaign in my opinion. God bless.

A larger audience gets attracted as it is an affordable method to get a larger chunk of the fan following. This is a good exposure of the website and it is more appealing to the prospects. More and more visitors will come to your site to check out the prices and the different products. This means video SEO can also help to generate more revenue.
Optimizing videos for SEO
The search engine will not be able to extract the keywords from the videos and hence application of a few skills is required. When you are uploading the videos, you must add title, location and a small description to it.
Titles & captions - The title of the video must contain the targeted keywords. You must caption your video wherever it is possible. Adding keyword based titles will make the video accessible to the end users.
Right Format - A video sitemap must be submitted in the proper format which will also include keyword tags and description. This will ensure that the video is in the good books of the search engine.
Keywords - The keywords must be used in the description of the video also. Judicious use of keywords will help proper indexing for a certain related query.
URL - One of the best video SEO practices is to optimize the URL so that the desired results are produced. Include the title of the video in the URL. The search engine will follow the path (URL) to locate the file. So it is necessary to give relevant file names to the video. Secondly, the attention span of an internet user is always under suspect and you must ensure that the length of the video is not more than 10 min.
Spread the video - Uploading the video is not the end of your task. You must let the net users know where they will find your video. You can do it through blogs, communities and friends. You can also make the links available on Facebook and Twitter to enjoy a wider reach.
Goal of video SEO
The goal of preparing a video SEO is to either make the video popular or to increase the search referrals for your website. This will ultimately help in raising the ranking of the website which is very important for any site. If you really want to increase website traffic through your video then you must not submit your video to other websites. Load the video on your own website and prepare a document which is known a site-map. The sit-map will act as a guide for the search engines with respect to videos, thumbnail images and titles. This information will be used by the search engine to index a video as it helps a great deal in the improvement of the rankings.
If you want the video to distribute among the netizens then you have the option of uploading it on video sharing websites like YouTube. Your video will get an assured traffic and will be accessed by a large number of users. Take the help of video submission software to submit the video in the major video sharing websites.
It is true that video SEO is a relatively new concept but it is definitely a promising domain. Search engine marketing agencies are not at all ignoring this new powerful tool when they are devising their search engine optimization strategies.
