Importantly, because Youtube is owned by Google, it is the second largest search engine on the internet to Google. So creating and optimizing video content on the internet is also an excellent way to get noticed.
Since each search engine has a different ranking algorithm, it’d be impossible to cover them all in this introduction to SEO lesson, so for now, we’ll focus on the basics of how to rank in the biggest search engine of them all: Google.
