There is a lot of stuff out there about how video sites are better than blogs for dominating search engines.
I will admit that they are less work, but I am not sure that they have the staying power of a blog that has built itself up as an expert site.
So I signed up for a trial account at one of the video posting sites and broadcast a video about how Virtual Assistants can develop passive income to improve their bottom line. Video Link: Virtual Assistant Passive Income
The goal is to target a reasonable longtail key phrase: Virtual Assistant Passive Income
Within 48 hours, one of the videos did land on the second page of Google at the #20 spot. But unless I also do a blog post about this subject, I cannot really compare which one is better. This blog post is going to be my test. The results will change day to day, so I am not posting the outcome here. You will need to go out and look in Google yourself for virtual assistnt passive income and see where things fall.
One point is this. I am using this blog to strengthen the MySpace video that showed up first, so even if the video ranks higher eventually for passive income for virtual assistants, it might end up being because this blog post gave it some extra juice.
Since I posted the same video to 5 different sites with similar keywords, I will know that the blog helped if it turns out that the MySpace video is much more strongly ranked than the others.
I know that this is just a micro-test and does not prove anything, but it is always interesting to see people do experiments, and I am very curious what will happen in this Virtual Assistant Passive Income experiment.
