The recent Google penguin update had a negative impact on my Amazon affiliate websites. The worst impact was one of my oldest affiliate websites was completely de-indexed by Google. All the income that I was getting from this website just ended over night. I had several other websites that dropped dramatically in their rankings. Oddly enough some of my new websites that had the least amount of content actually ended up moving up in the rankings. I don’t understand why an older website with more content would be treated less favorably than a website created a few months ago with only 5 posts but that is what happened.
I know some people faced with this impact would just throw their hands up in the air and quit. For the first couple of weeks I buried myself in reading as much as I could from SEO experts that were making suggestions on what to do to recover your website ranking. One of the suggestions that resonated with me was to use websites that rank highly in Google. Most people were recommending Squidoo and YouTube. I already use Squidoo so I decided to give it a go with YouTube.
Below are 3 videos that I created that shows you how quickly and easily it is to create a video that you can upload to YouTube. I will walk you thru step by step how I created the video. You can look over my shoulders and watch as I create a video. I am creating these videos now to get ranked highly in Google. Each video is just a few minutes long with the first video being the longest. The last video is the actual video that I created.
Please leave a comment below if you use videos in your ranking strategy or not. If you use video what products or methods do you use to create the videos?
Video 1 – Creating the presentation
Video 2 – Capturing the presentation
Video 3 – Creating the actual video
